Question about Canon HR10 Camcorder

3 Answers

"FInalize" menu option greyed out on my Canon HR10

Why is the "finalize" menu option greyed out when I want to finalize my DVD? I have recorded some scenes on a mini DVD in my Canon HR10 HD recorder. I recorded these in HD. When I go to the menu to "finalize" the disc, the "finalize" option is greyed out, and i cannot finalize the disc to play in my DVD player. Why is that "greyed out"?

    That is exactly what the problem was. Nowhere in the Users Guide do they tell you that you have to have the camera plugged into the A/C adapter!

    Thanks!

1 cannot initialize 2 cannot finalize


- a recorded disc needs some extra free space to finalize it. so if you have maxed out all the recording space in the disc, its not going to give you the option to finalize it or its going to be greyed out.

Initialize the discs then record...but then it still wont play on the computer/dvd player Canon camcorder dc210


I have a Samsung recorder, and it requires you to "finalize" the disc before it will play on another unit. Check your manual for specifics, or look in your menu for the "finalize disk" option. Hope this helps...

Finialising discs..


You have to plug in the AC adapter to finalize a disc. It won't "finalize" on the battery alone.
