I have owned my camcorder for almost three years now and have had very few problems. In the last six months when I have completed the 30 minutes of recording time on the DVD and then tried to finalize the disc on the camcorder, so it is viewable on a TV, I am receiving the following error message "Disc Error has occurred, finalizing is not complete". When I click OK, it will not allow me to view any of the recorded image from the DVD on my camcorder. Whereas before trying to finalze I could look at thumbnails of each section of video I had recorded on the camcorder. It seems this information is now lost and I cannot finalize! It just continues to give me the same error message when I try to repeat the finalization process!
I am following the same steps I always have to finalize a disk and I am using the same kind of DVD (Sony/DVD-R/1.4GB). I contacted Panasonic Support and they suggested that I try not to record the full 30 minutes on the DVD. That by taking it to its limit is causing the error! The only problem with that is I have about 15 DVDs that I have used the full 30 minutes and was able to finalize without any problems. Any solutions you could suggest I would appreciate it!

using this type of disc even in video or vr mode recording, it is not possible to delete the clips after finalization. unfinalizing the disc may not help.the delete option is possible only when you delete the last scene immediately from the camcorder.for reference see p.14 of the manual.so clips in between the first and last recording would not be possible to delete.an option would be to use your computer.select only the movie files that you would like to put on a disc and use your burning application for that purpose.at least you get to choose the clips you want and would have the capability of compiling it on a regular dvd disc.hope this helps.tnx:)
Since the camcorder records on Mini DVD+/-R and RW, and SD/MMC cards, just eject the media from the camcorder and insert it into the appropriate drive on your computer. Open the burning software of your choice (which you may or may not already own) and follow the directions for burning the files with that software. If the disks are DVD RW or SD/MMC delete the files after burning is complete. Even though the manual states that it will work with DVD-R, the camcorder seems to have issues finalizing these particular formats, so I recommend using DVD+R and DVD+RW. I hope this helps and good luck. Please vote appropriately and leave a comment.
Try to use a cotton swap to 1st clean the recording lens or blow gently on it. Place an empty disc in, format the disc, record a little scene. Turn off camcorder. Place the error disc in the camcorder, turn on the camcorder all the way to play/edit. If this doesn't work turn it to record and try to record. Worked for some of my error disc
IF THAT DISC WAS RECORDED ON AND THEN REMOVED BEFORE FINALIZING IT WILL NOT FINALIZE. THE CAMERA LOOSES THE MAIN INFORMATION TABLE FOR THAT RECORDING. ONLY THING TO DO NOW IS, IF THE DISC CAN STILL PLAYBACK ON THE CAMERA THEN CONNECT IT TO A DVD RECORDER VIA THE AV PORT AND RECORD.
I had the same problem for about an hour. I finally got it, though not sure how. I think it had something to do with the green button on the on/off switch. I pressed it down while at the same time pushing the on/off button down to "mode". When I went back to finalize it yet again, I got the option to select "Yes". Hooray!
on standard players. The write all the information that a standard player looks for to read the disk. Nothing is lost if you take the DVD out of the recorder without finalizing it. On a PC, you would tell the software to eject the disk. Later model hardware can usually reopen a disk after it has been finalized.
Is this a typo? 'I know that the disc cannot be seen in a DVD player after being finalized'. It should read;
I know that the disc can be seen in a DVD player after being finalized
