Finalizing a disc
You have to finalize the disc before you can play a recorded disc on other players.
Finalizing makes the recorded disc DVD-Video compatible, and you can play the disc
on equipments such as DVD players.
Note that you cannot record additional materials on finalized discs in VIDEO mode. But
you can record on a disc again if you unfinalize the disc when you use DVD-RWs.
Some players cannot play discs recorded in the VR mode. Make sure of playback
compatibility with your players in advance of recording. For details, see the operating
instructions supplied with your player.
•Do not apply shock or vibration to your camcorder during finalizing.
•Do not disconnect the AC adaptor during finalizing or the disc may be damaged.
When you need to disconnect the AC adaptor, make sure that the power of your
camcorder is set to off and disconnect the adaptor after the POWER/CHG lamp goes
off. Finalizing restarts when you connect the AC adaptor and turn on your camcorder
again. You cannot remove the disc until the finalizing operation is completed.
Place your camcorder in a stable position. It takes about a minute to a few hours
for finalizing. The shorter the amount of material recorded, the longer it takes for
Connect the AC adaptor to the DC IN jack on your camcorder, then connect
the power cord to the wall outlet.
Turn the power on by pressing the POWER button for a few seconds.
