Help: Writing DVD (Finialization question)

Hello there. How would you know if the DVD you have written is finalized? Do you have any idea of a software that could determine if the DVD you burned is finalized or not? Thanks!

"finalizing" or "fixating" writable optical media just means that a TOC (table of contents) has been written to it.

So, you can do

wodim -toc
