** HELP ** Closing DVD-R from Sony Handycam DVD101

I’ve looked around and found no answers to the burning question of finalizing an unfinalized disc. My daughter’s 1st birthday was saved to one such disc and I’ve tried everything I can think of to either finalize or extract the data from the disc. I’ve used Nero to get isos of it and burn it using the isos: no go. I’ve tried ISObuster to get the files off and it tells me that it cannot read from the source disc. I’ve tried DVD Decrypter to try to close the disc and I get an I/O error. Please, please, please help. Any log file or other information needed will gladly be provided. Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.

Have you tried putting it back into the camera, and following the instructions for finalizing the disk???

Yeah, when I put it in the camera, the option to finalize the disc is grayed out and it tells me “NOT READY.” I’m not sure what that’s about.
