Rip Non Finalized Disc Help!

My dad was trying to brun a disc with his DVD recorder and the recorder just stopped. He thinks it was because of the loogy on it :0. And now the dic won't finalize and our computer says there's no disc in the drive.

Is there any way I can salvage the stuff off the disc?

I would take the disc to another of the same brand and/or model recorder (maybe a demo unit in a store?) and finalize it.

Doubtful. If it stopped in the midst of the burn, the disc is basically junk in my experience. Just another nice reason to have a DVD recorder with a HD.

Yeah, but this seems to be a video/program being dubbed from standalone recorder. If it didn't complete the burn, wasn't finalized, and the disc can't even be seen on the computer, I doubt a data recovery app is going to cut it.
