Battery died in the middle of finalizing

I was finalizing a disc and trying to get the power cord plugged in, but I was too late and the battery died. Now the disc won't play anywhere but in the camcorder. I can't unfinalize it, finalize it, nothing. I tried to hook up the USB to my computer, but it says the disc is not formatted or incompatible. Please help!

Hi, If you want to edit the video, try copying the unfinalized VOB or VRO file from the mini-DVD onto your harddrive by just putting it on the dvd drive of your pc.. u can use premire or some other tolls to get the work done and finally burn it another dvd as you like. good luck my friend sreejith

Toshiba Satellite won't start up when AC plugged in

Try another Cord/Charger to verify the Cord, AC jack. If you plug in the AC cord after starting on battery, does the battery charge? Open Control Panel, Power Options, set to High Performance, Advanced power settings, set Sleep and Hibernate to Never, Adjust Advanced power setting to your preference.

Battery not charging...

My impression is that you might have a defective cord if you still have your old adapter and has the same power specification try this first.

If the battery is hot and does not charge you might have a defective battery . Better have it checked at the service center before buying a brand new battery

Disk finalization error

dont know if youve found a solution already, but:
you cant finalzie the disc using battery power, you need to use the ac adaptor. This is something you should have got with the camcorder. its basically the charger plus another cable. so, plug in the charger to the mains as normal. then remove the battery from the camcorder, you'll notice a round hole in the camorder, this is where you plug in the cable i mentioned earlier, the other end of the cable goes into the same size hole found on the battery charger. that's it - you now have power to the camcorder from the mains. switch on the camcorder as normal and finalize the disk.

Troubleshooting

It must be plugged into wall power to finalize. You cannot finalize on battery power.

Laptop crashes shortly after boot, power light rapidly blinks red.

Its late, so just to make sure I'm not brain-dead basically your laptop runs fine as long as its powered by the AC adaptor but dies fairly quickly while running via battery. This is very typical of a battery that will no longer hold a charge, not normally a user repairable item. It could also be that the charging electronics (in the laptop) isn't charging the battery, again not a typical user repair job. About your only option short of taking it to the repair shop is buying or borrowing a battery as a test.
