Question about Sony Cameras

1 Answer

I apparently over-filled a 3.5" DVD-R disc with my Handycam Model 405 as the "finalized" program did not complete the process. Now I cannot access the valuable video files nor can I "unfinalize" so that I can delete several clips to make room. Is there any way I can retrieve the files through Nero, Picture Package, Microsoft or some other DVD player program?

DVD-R will not play


You have to finalize or go to edit and then finalize first before taking out. Once done you will have to use new disc.

Finalized a Sony DVD-RW in a Handycam and now it asks "Make the disc recordable? DVD menu will be deleted. Yes/No. Not sure what I want.


Hi.

The answer you want here is no. If you choose yes the Handycam will erase the data on the DVD-RW and get it ready for you to record on again. Now the disk is finalized thats the end of the burning process and the disk is done.

Need to know how to finalize recorded disc so that it can be played in regular dvd player


You can record and finalize DVD+Rs one time. After you fill a DVD+R or

complete all the recordings you want on a single DVD+R, finalize it.

Otherwise, the DVD+R will play only on this Recorder.To play the Disc on

other DVD Players, you must finalize it first.

Once you finalize a DVD+R, you cannot record on it anymore or make

editing changes.Therefore, make sure the Disc is as you want it before you

finalize it.

1



Press SYSTEM MENU. Press

; to select in the top left

corner of the menu bar at the top of the TV screen.

2



Press CH-

9 repeatedly to select in the second screen,

then press



:.

3



Press CH-

9 repeatedly to select Finalize disc. Finalize disc

appears in the menu only when an unfinalized DVD+R is in the

Recorder.

4



Press OK.

"Finalizing" will appear in the menu.The process may

take a few minutes.


When finalization is complete, the Index

picture screen will reappear.

You cannot unfinalize a DVD+R, and you cannot record or

edit the DVD+R after you finalize it.

A DVD+R will play on other DVD Players only after the
Disc is finalized.

After recording a program on a DVD+R disc, the TV screen says "Disc Finalize Processing...." and nothing else works. I can't stop it, watch it, finalize it, or power off.


The DVD burner in your DVD-VR is defective. Get it replaced at a service center.Is is not able to read the lead in lead out information from your disc. Try playing one of the disc you have written on another DVD player.

Hi: Please i have the sony handycam model:dcr-dvd602e and i had recorded a whole disc with it ( 30 min.) then i finalize and it was completly finalized but after that or at the end of finalizing a message...


oops....something happened during the finalizing process and it failed. Hope you had a back-up in your computer of the disk. It doesn't need to be finalized to have it in the computer, just in case this happens. Looks like your disc got erased.

Finalize DVD


Some Camcorders need you to plug the charger to enable you to finalize it. This is to avoid your disc or data be destroyed or corrupted should your camcorder ran out of battery.
