Finalizing disks

By mrtfool

  1. I have just come back from the states and video'd lots of great stuff, shame then that I left my camera in a taxi. I have 6 dvd-rw disks that have not been finalized with all my holiday memories on. If I put them in PC it says they are blank disks. Can I finalize them on the PC with some program as I dont have the camera any more.

    I don't think this is a "finalizing" problem. It may be a format issue. Some digital cameras have a "special" format scheme, different from a PC. You might be able to take the discs to a camera shop to have the contents saved in a more useful manner

    download PC inspector smart recovery. It's good for getting photos. You might retrieve some that way.
