[QUOTE=tjtsixty3;2597709]Thanks for your help. This is very confusing because I received the answer below from Panasonic:
Unfortunately no. Un-finalized discs made on the DMRES35 will need to be finalized on the DMRES35 or another
Your experience, though, sounds as if this were not true. Any thoughts? Thanks![/QUOTE]
Jeff is correct and Panasonic is wrong. I routinely swap unfinalized discs between my ES, EH and EZ series Panasonics (including several DMR-ES35 models) for additional recording and/or finalizing.
