Re: problem in finalizing the disc over camcorder.
Inorder to finalize the disc you must purchase, or have a piece for the charger that looks like a battery. it plugs into the charger than into the camera. The camera will not finalize the disc without it incase the battery runs out, than all info would be lost.
A huge pain in the ***. I know, I have the same problem.

Hi, Need to provide power from ac charger of camera so disc finalize option will appear to finalize disc. Powering camcorder with battery wont give you Finalize option so use ac charger to get Finalize menu. Thanks.
Power on the camcorder. Push the disk navigation button, then the menu button. Scroll down until you find the option to finalize disk. Follow the instructions on screen. You will need to have it hooked up to the ac adapter inorder for it to work. Good Luck!
try buying ulead videostudio and it doesnt even need to be finalized. videostudio was great for me because i could simply put in my disc and then click on import from disc and it would import it onto my computer. hope that helps.
the disc is most probally badly manufactured this is why it could not finalize. the only thing you can do now is playback the disc in the camera and plug the AV out into a stand alone dvd recorder and dump it to disc or hdd.
to finalize the disk for enabling discs to be played on other devices.
Connect this unit to the AC adaptor. Finalization cannot be executed using a battery.
Rotate the mode dial to select the arrow.
Press the MENU button, then select SETUP, FINALIZE, YES and press the joystick. Select whether or not to create a top menu, then press the joystick. When the confirmation message appears, select YES then press the joystick.
hope this helps you. julie
