    They have to be finalized on the original recorder.
    There are programs that can recover (not finalize) the files on the disk.
    I don't know of any free programs that do this.

    The files would be extracted from the unfinalized disks then copied to a new disk on the PC.
    As I understand it, disks which are recorded on a standalone DVD recorder have to be finalized on the machine that made the recording.
