You cannot finalise after the dvd has been recorded on as if it's not rewritable then it cannot be reused, or rewriten or altered in any way.

Sony DCR DVD108 not finalizing disc, lost data

I noticed that too with my "VR" (and NOT "Video") formatted disks. I don't think you can finalize the VR ones. Instead you have to use the Sony Import tool to grab the videos. If you are like me you probably remember using the import tool with Video formatted disks BEFORE finalizing them and it takes forever to copy them. They must be finalized to view on other devices, copy using the import tool quicker, etc., but VR formatted disks seem optimized for importing (and can be edited on the camcorder directly.

After couple diagnostics one said to reinstall them and second person recommended to buy a new one. The new one i bought is Sony DRU-V200A > but I cannot install the software since i have to install the actual drive first. Also after trying some tips > it displayed this message > Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19) So perhaps my pc is really getting destroyed by viruses? Also when I tried to plug in new external hard drive it shut off my pc twice stating its preventing from damaging computer, so i cannot install that either. Pc otherwise works fine. The second person installed some stuff to clean it up and scan it etc. But I need the cd drive. If to reinstall the windows is something I have to do > how could i possibly do that my self? I do not have any cd's from this pc, it was custom built a few years ago for a bussiness purposes and plus my cd drive is not working. Is there a way for me to take care of it? I cannot afford someone fixing it at the moment, please help!!!! :) much appreciated
