HOW TO FINALIZE THE DVD CASSETE AND CONNECT TO T.V SET?


Finalising a disc enables the disc to be played on any other compatible machine. By doing this it changes the disc format so that you can no longer record to it turning it into a Play Only disc. On your Panasonic DVD Recorder you can record to many (if not all depending on the model) of the following DVD Disc formats to the limit of their capacity over multiple occasions. The disc in question can be played back and recorded to on the DVD Recorder during this time but until it is finalised it will not work on any other machine.
DVD Formats: DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD-RAM, DVD+R, DVD+RW.
How do I Finalise my disc?
  1. When you have finished the initial recording stop the disc and press the ~FUNCTIONS~button.
  2. Using the ~UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT arrows~ on the keypad select "To Others" and press~ENTER~.
  3. Using the ~UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT arrows~ on the keypad Scroll down to "DISC MANAGEMENT" and press ~ENTER~.
  4. When the disc management screen opens you need to use the ~UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT arrows~ on the keypad to scroll down to "FINALIZE" and press ~ENTER~.
  5. Using the ~UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT arrows~ on the keypad select "YES" and press~ENTER~.
  6. Using the ~UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT arrows~ on the keypad select "START" to begin finalizing the disc, please note by pressing start here you will no longer be able to record or edit the disc being finalized.
Finalizing may take up to 15 minutes.
Do not disconnect the mains power in this time. A message appears when finalizing is finished, press the enter button when this appears. It will now play on other compatible machines.

I have a panasonic ES15 dvd and I an using a ram disc to record my holiday film, but it will not record any picture, what am I doing wrong?


I was trying to do this recording through the television on to the DVD but every effort failed! I decided to cut out the TV and connect direct to the DVD and joy it worked. Please tell me now how I can lend this DVD to my friends and it will play on their equipment, as I dont think you can finalise a Ram?

Thanks for replying to my original query.

Can I playback my movies on a DVD-ROM drive?


No, DVD-RAM disc recorded on the DVD Camcorder will not play back on every drive. Some of the new DVD-ROM drives designed to be compliant with the new DVD-RAM book2 standards will playback discs recorded on the DVD Camcorder. Many previous DVD-ROM drives on the market that came out before the DVD-RAM standard was released will not play back discs recorded on the DVD Camcorder. HITACHI manufactures DVD-ROM drives for some PC manufactures as OEM products. HITACHI model GD-7500 DVD-ROM has DVD-RAM read/write compatibility.

When should I use a DVD-R / DVD-RAM / DVD-RW?


Write Once – After finalizing, a DVD-R disc can be played back in approx. 95% of home DVD players and PC DVD drives Capacity – 30-60 minutes (depending on the selected filming mode) of high quality motion video can be stored on a single of a disc. Re-writeable – DVD-RAM allows for recording and re-recording of movies and still photos up to 100,000 times per disc. DVD-RAM is like a removable hard drive. Compatibility for video playback of DVD-RAM in standard home DVD players is fairly low. DVD-RW cannot store true .jpeg digital still photo’s like DVD-RAM, however it is re-writable and has 80% compatibility with home DVD players.

Why should I record my memories on a Hitachi DVD Camcorder?


The picture and sound quality of footage stored on a DVD does not degrade over time. Home movies can be shared with friends and family decades into the future in perfect and pristine condition. Motion video stored on a 8 cm (3 inch) DVD-R disc can be played back on most DVD players and compatible PC DVD drives. After finalizing the DVD-R disc in the camcorder, it can be placed directly into your home DVD player and played back. No additional adapters are necessary and you do not have to connect the camcorder to the television. With DVD, you can instantly access desired scenes without having to endure the time consuming task of fast-forwarding or rewinding. Through Hitachi’s Disc Navigation feature, you simply select the thumbnail image of your favorite scene and it begins to play immediately. 2005 Hitachi DVD Camcorders support four different types of recording media. For motion video you have the option of using a 8 cm (3 inch) DVD-R disc or a 8 cm (3 inch) DVD-RAM disc. Digital still photos can be stored on DVD-RAM discs, Secure Digital cards or MultiMedia Cards. Size Hitachi introduced the world’s first DVD based camcorder three years ago. Since then, Hitachi engineers have been able to perfect the technology and to reduce the physical mass of the camcorder by 45% making it the most portable DVD camcorder in the industry.
