I recorded a DVD half way through. I reviewed what I had recorded, then continued recording on that same DVD. I reached the end of the DVD, took it out of the camera, put in a new one, and continued recording.
When I tried to finalize the first DVD, the camera said that option was not available, and I cannot see the contents of the DVD in the camera or in any other device (computer, DVD player). However, when I insert the DVD into my laptop, it says that there are 1.34 Gb on the disk information, but the files inside the DVD only have 32Kb each. Somebody said something about having a double session on the same DVD, and that that was the reason why I couldn't see it.
Could this be true, and if so, what can I do? What's recorded on the DVD is very precious to me, and I don't want to lose it.

The possibility of this varies from handycam to handycam but it is most likely related to the type of disk you are using.some disks can only record one session. it is important to read the instructions that came with the disk.generally disks marked 'DVD-R' can only record one session whereas disks marked DVD-RW can record several sessions and can even be erased and recorded on again as new.
pse reply if this helps you
If your using DVD-RW make sure you format it in video mode. Do your recordings then when you want play them back on a dvd player you have to finalise the disk in the camcorder first.
If you want to continue recording you will have to un finalise the disk.
Not only you. A lot of people have same issue.I have read a lot of questions and answers,forum about JVC software Power cinema ...etc... ( go to www.videoforums.co.uk/general-sofware-problem/12080-jvc-everio-sofware.html ).Headache.That sofware from JVC is a scrap.
Buy a DVD Recorder ( cheap one ) . Record directly from your Camcorder on Replay mode. That is my way.It is good.
Please tell all of your friends,family , co-workers never buy any products from JVC again. NEVER all your life.
The recording mechanism itself was damaged in the fall and that is why it can't record new ones and also sounds like the reason the eye piece is not working the only option you have for a high tech piece of equipment like this is to have it serviced I can help you locate local repair with your zip code(or city) or you can locate the closest authorized service center here: http://esupport.sony.com/perl/select-system.pl?PRODTYPE=1,24,26,66,9,70,5,72 If you need any further assistance please let me know.

When using Quick Review to check the end of your last recording, some distortion at the beginning of the playback is normal.
When using the Retake mode to record a scene, the video may darken or become monochromic. Noise bars may also appear. This is normal.
DVD dies if I try to record to the end
I'm not sure if this relates or not. I have a Sony DVR-10
stand alone DVD recorder and if I'm using DVD+R I have to leave some time for the DVD to be finalize. If I record all the way to end I just made coaster.
Now if I use a DVD+RW I don't have to finalize, I can play it in a PC but not a DVD player. So to be safe I now record on DVD+RW and then just copy it to DVD+R or -R
on the PC.
