I recorded a DVD half way through. I reviewed what I had recorded, then continued recording on that same DVD. I reached the end of the DVD, took it out of the camera, put in a new one, and continued recording.
When I tried to finalize the first DVD, the camera said that option was not available, and I cannot see the contents of the DVD in the camera or in any other device (computer, DVD player). However, when I insert the DVD into my laptop, it says that there are 1.34 Gb on the disk information, but the files inside the DVD only have 32Kb each. Somebody said something about having a double session on the same DVD, and that that was the reason why I couldn't see it.
Could this be true, and if so, what can I do? What's recorded on the DVD is very precious to me, and I don't want to lose it.

If the entire VHS is full then you can easily transfer the VHS contents to the DVD. The video will play while it is recording onto the DVD, but you don't have to have it hooked up to any TV for it to record. Now if you don't know how long the VHS content is that you want to record to DVD, then you will have to hook up the player to a TV so that you can press stop when you reach the end of the content you want recorded. At least this is true in the way that I use to transfer VHS to DVD:
1) Turn on the unit 2) Insert VHS tape 3) Insert DVD-+R or DVD-+ RW 4) Using remote, press VCR 5)Using remote, press play then pause the tape where you want to start recording. 6)Using remote, press DVD 7) Using the remote, press DUBBING. The VHS should start to play and the DVD should start recording
When using this method, don't hit the RECORD button!
Use the Dub video feature. This will work if the source is not copy protected. Make sure you have a writable (or rewritable) DVD with sufficient space available in the DVD tray (closed) and put your tape to dub in the VCR.
Press Setup on the remote and navigate down (up/down arrows) to Recording and press OK. Then select Dubbing Mode in the next menu level and press OK. When the Option menu opens, highlight VCR to DVD and press OK. Press Setup to exit this menu. Choose a recording mode using REC MODE on the remote. Press Play and then Pause when you reach the point where you want to start the recording (press quickly if you want to dub the whole tape; you will lose a few seconds while the dubbing starts so include 5 seconds extra if starting later in the tape). Then press Dubbing on the remote. The duplication will start. Press Stop when you reach the end of the section to record.
I hope this helps.
Cindy Wells (only the Setup and Rec Mode buttons do not have a matching button on the front of the unit. The later steps (setting up the start point, starting the Dub and stopping it) can be done with the remote or the buttons on the unit.)
most dvd recorders have setting to finalize at the end of a timer generated recording, or to fianalize when the disc reaches the end and runs out of room, check for one or both of these settings in the setup menu of the recorder
