You usually can finalize in other brand camcorders-I've done it and it should work-I wouldn't think you need to finalize disc to stream from cam to pc-try it first w/out or see if only rw's will do it--r may not-some cams can only usb still photos so make sure your model supports video through usb

I interrupted my finalization of the disc on my handycam and now can not continue


You can try data recovery software such as CDroller or "Bad CD DVD repair"
Or send it off to a mini dvd recovery company such as www.minidvdrepair.com
I used them in the past with great results. I believe I paid around $100

I CAN NOT TRANSFER FROM THE CAM TO COMPUTER I HAVE WINDOWS XP PROFESSIONAL AND MY COMPUTER SAYS THAT THE FORMAT ON DVD IS NOT SUPPORTED


Hi,

There are three ways of transferring the videos from the Camcorder to the Computer. One is by using the Picture Motion Browser Software, other by using the A/V, USB cable after finalizing the disc in the Camcorder and finally using the DVD-ROM Drive in the Computer after finalizing the disc. If you're trying to transfer using the 2nd and 3rd option, the the disc in the Camcorder should be finalized.

Also make sure that the disc is formatted in DVD-Video mode instead of DVD-VR mode. VR mode recorded discs can only be played back using a VR Compatible Software/Player or in the same Camcorder. DVD-Video mode recording will help you in playing the discs in all the Players and DVD Viewing Software.

I always recommend transferring the videos to the Computer using the supplied PMB Software.

Please check transferring steps and information from the link given below:

Transfering images from mini cd to regular cd


Finalizing only allows your CD or DVD to be compatible with other units and to prevent any additional files from being added. If you initialized instead of finalizing you may have wiped out your files, but I doubt it.  Try this: Play your CDs on the original unit where they were recorded. If you see pictures, you should be able to transfer them. Try running a USB or firewire cable directly from your camera or DVD player into your computer and capturing that way. You did not mention what kind of a computer or photo capture device you are using.

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.
