Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

A DVD-RW or DVD+RW disc can be reused even if it has already been finalized. If you want to delete all the images from the disc, you can format the disc in the camcorder. If there is enough space on the disc, you can add additional recordings by doing one of the following:

  • For a DVD-RW disc recorded in VIDEO mode, select UNFINALIZE from the MANAGE DISC/MEMORY section in the HOME menu.
  • For a DVD-RW disc recorded in VR mode, you can simply continue recording on the disc without unfinalizing.
  • For a DVD+RW disc, you can simply continue recording on the disc without unfinalizing.
