Question about Samsung Video Cameras
There are a couple of possibilities for this to happen. A likely one has to do with the surface of the disc itself. This could be a fingerprint, scratch, smudge or a hair on the disc. Finalization of discs is usually only needed to allow playing in a home disc player - disc players in computers are almost always able to play discs that have not been finalized without a problem.
If you're unable to finalize in the recorder, try playing the disc in a computer disc drive instead. Copy the disc to a new, blank disc using your computer's disk recorder hardware and software. Finalize options (if you need that done) should be provided at the end of the recording process in your computer.
If you have finalizing issues with ALL of the discs you're using in the recorder - it may be a problem with the recorder. Try using different brands and speed ratings of discs you use - as it may be problem with one of those disc media variables instead of a recorder hardware problem. Most recorder manufacturers maintain a list disc media that has been tested to work satisfactorily with their hardware. Since you didn't provide the name of the device - I couldn't check for you. Google the manufacturer's name and contact them to via phone or web support pages for a list of supported media.
I hope this helps & good luck! Please rate my reply - thank you.
