Hi all, ive got some dvd's someone from work lent me but i cant open them on my computer, Ive figured out the problem is that he didn't close the session after he burnt them.
Just wondering if it is possible to close the session on my computer, when i try open the disk i get a error so i cant get into the DVD its self.

Im running XP pro SP3

I took 1 of the disks to a friends place ( hes on vista ) & he could open the dvd & close the session by going into the right click menu, that DVD now works on my computer just wanting to not have to take all the disks ( about 50 ) round there & do it to each of them.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Hello!

If you have a video editing application, such as Final Cut Pro, Pinnacle, or Avid--then you may be able to open them and finalize them.

I have worked in Final Cut Pro and Pinnacle, and have had success finalizing DVDs, even after they are ejected, then replaced in to the computer.

Hope it works out for you! :thumbsup:

edit: your friend's computer may have encrypted the DVD until it gets finalized.

Well...why not just give them back and have the owner close them?

That's a much better alternative than your possibly screwing up someone else's property, as you try to find "a solution."

I don't believe this is a time-critical situation that precludes such...

Look's like your friend's computer is the best answer.

Thanks for the comment, Louis.

Then ask the guy who gave them to you if he wants you to try to do it your computer. That way if you try it on one and it messes it up, he cannot blame you. If you try one, you will know if it going to mess them up or not and if it messes it up, you will know not to do the others and if it works, your set.

If you have a rewrite drive on your computer then you probably have some software for it to do the burning and that software might be all you need to close them with. If you don't and your friend who did the one doesn't mind doing the others, or letting you do them on his computer, do that. Obviously using his system to do it isn't messing them up so if it isn't a big deal to that person to let you do it, do it.
