Re: DONOT UDERSTAND HOW TO FINALIZE THE DISC AND COPY TO...
I just had the same problem, i could not find how to finalize the cd. the trick is to enter into the "library view" where you can see all the clips you've found. there you click on the button 'func' and there's an option finalize. then it works like importing an ordinary dvd...
Hope you save some time that I lost...

Re: DONOT UDERSTAND HOW TO FINALIZE THE DISC AND COPY TO...
If you are using a -r disc finalize should appear in menus-if using -rw may not appear because rw's don't always have to be finalized to play in things beside camcorder- -r can not delete anything on them either they only record exactly as you are recording

Write protection is where a CD or DVD is finalized and cannot be rewritten (in the case of VHS, it means that there is a little plastic tab that has to be removed to record over it; I can tell you how to bypass that if you want...). If your format is DVD/CD+R or -R, there is no way to bypass it; what is written shall remain. However those of the RW variety can be repeatedly erased and rewritten. As far as I know, there are no methods to bypass write protection. However...
Copy protection CAN be bypassed. Say you want to make a back-up of a CD or DVD from a copy-protected disc. Use a program such as nero record to copy the disc info to your hard drive (I also have a program called DVD Region + CSS Free-- this will work with media that has region blocks on it). Once copied to your hard drive, you can use nero burning to either burn the ISO or Video TS file onto a CD or DVD. Or save yourself the discs and just get a mounting program like daemon tools
Use a bittorrent provider like BitComet to locate torrent files that have these programs. Of course, my disclaimer against piracy goes here but you decide!
What program or software are you using to make the DVD? The DVD must be "finalized" before it can be read on an external device, such as a VCR/DVD player. PC's however, can handle the un-finalized (is that a word?) discs because it assumes you may want to add more files (pictures). Once the disc is finalized, no more files can be added to it.
According to the official description of that recorder, you should have no problem, this is from the description for the DMRES15:
Recordable DVD Media
Record your favorite shows onto DVD-RW, DVD-R, DVD+RW, and DVD-RAM DVD discs. The DMR-ES15 is also compatible with DVD+R Double layer media and provides up to 14 hours of media recording.
Don't worry about limited playback capabilities, the DMR-ES15 can play DVD, DVD-RW (VR Mode), DVD-RW (Video Mode), DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD+RW, DVD-RAM, VCD and CD-DA discs. Also, you can play your favorite songs from CDs or MP3 files, and JPEG images.
You don't necessarily need a code if the DVD player screen is not asking for one. The problem could be that the discs are not finalized - use the same DVD recorder or computer burning software that you used to record the DVD's to finalize the discs. Some programs/players use the word "closing" or "close disc" instead of the word "finalize." If you used the Magnavox to record the DVD's, go into the Settings menu of the Magnavox, select "Disc Edit," and then "Finalize." If the DVD player screen is specifically asking for a code, the user manual for the Magnavox has the universal code in it - it is usually 7-1-1 or 0-7-1-1 for Magnavox. If you have lost the user manual, it is available from either the Magnavox or Funai website, depending on your exact model.
Take the Disc out and put it aside. You must clean the Laser Eye, and clean dust and other matter from inside your recorder. Clean Eye with rubbibg alcohol and q-tip. A regular CD/DVD cleaner disc will not work. After cleaning, reinsert your Disc and Finalize it.
Just to clarify - when you say try to finalize the disc on the DVD recorder, do you mean the DVD camcorder i.e. the VDR D100? if not and you mean an actual DVD recorder then this is where your problem lies, as the disc can only be finalized in the VDR D100 unit itself. this could be the reason behind the poor quality when you watch the clip using windows media player.
If i've got the above wrong, and you were talking about finalization problems on the unit itself all along then the following might help: how full is the disc you are finalizing? if it is pretty full then delete one or two unwanted clips and try finalizing again (this worked for me when i had this problem).
if the disc is not really full then it gets trickier. let me know if it works
Aquarius0128 there are two things to consider here.. dvd's recorded on a computer need to be closed/finalized after you have recorded onto them in order to be used on a stand alone player.. they will play ok on original recorder because of the design of these machines finalizing prepares the structure of the disc so it can be recognised by other players as a dvd video disc.. you will usually see a 'finalize disc' option in your recording program
Second issue is this.. even if finalized an older (or even some modern) stand alone players will not recognise a recorded disc made on a computer or even if it can there are different formats DVD+R DVD-R and even DVD-RAM and DVD-RW (the two latter ones are rarely recognised outside a computer)
We had the same problem, and had the camera exchanged and same thing happened with that one.
I called Canon, JVC, and Memorex, because those are the discs that we used.
Everyone just blamed each other, for either, bad discs, or bad camera.
What we finally came up with was, we have a recordable DVD player that was fairly cheap, under $100. We hooked up the camera to the DVD and copied it to a full size disc. It somehow finalized the disc.
We were also told that we could bring our disc to a video place to have them do it, finalize it. I would cost us $85 per disc.
I hope this helps. I can tell you though, I am returning this camera and getting a different one. We are very disappointed in that finalization step. We almost lost everything!
