Question about Samsung DVD-R155

1 Answer

I don't want my DVD's to Auto finalize when I open the drawer

Every time I open the drawer after I have recorded something. It finalizes the disc. That didn't happen with my Samsung R130. I wanted to know if there is anything I can do to fix it to a manual setting.
Thanks a bunch,
Laura

How to finalize a dvd


Which specific model of DVD recorder do you have? You need to finalize the disc on the unit that wrote the files/movie to disc. For the Toshiba DR570KU, press Setup on the remote. Then enter the DVD menu (use the up/down arrows to navigate and then press Enter). Select Finalize and then press Enter. Highlight Yes when asked to confirm the finalization step and then press Enter again. Wait for the recorder to finish the process (it will take several minutes). Note: you need to leave some space on the disc for the finalization data to be added to it.

You can also set the unit to auto-finalize when the disc is full or a timed recording ends. For the second item, you will not be able to add content to the disc if a short program was recorded unless you use a rewritable DVD. (Then you would will need to unfinalize the disc. See the manual.) This is accessed from the General Settings menu from the Setup button. Go to Recordings and then select the Auto Finalize setting. Select when you want the disc to finalize and then turn ON the feature. Press Setup to exit the menu.

The manual for the DR570 is available under the User's Guide tab here: http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=SB&os=&category=&moid=2805105&rpn=undefined&modelFilter=DR570KU&selCategory=2797338&selFamily=2797342 . Toshiba has the manuals to most of their products here: http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/home.jsp .

Please add a comment with the specifics of your recorder for more information. I hope this helps.

Need to know how to finalize recorded disc so that it can be played in regular dvd player


You can record and finalize DVD+Rs one time. After you fill a DVD+R or

complete all the recordings you want on a single DVD+R, finalize it.

Otherwise, the DVD+R will play only on this Recorder.To play the Disc on

other DVD Players, you must finalize it first.

Once you finalize a DVD+R, you cannot record on it anymore or make

editing changes.Therefore, make sure the Disc is as you want it before you

finalize it.

1



Press SYSTEM MENU. Press

; to select in the top left

corner of the menu bar at the top of the TV screen.

2



Press CH-

9 repeatedly to select in the second screen,

then press



:.

3



Press CH-

9 repeatedly to select Finalize disc. Finalize disc

appears in the menu only when an unfinalized DVD+R is in the

Recorder.

4



Press OK.

"Finalizing" will appear in the menu.The process may

take a few minutes.


When finalization is complete, the Index

picture screen will reappear.

You cannot unfinalize a DVD+R, and you cannot record or

edit the DVD+R after you finalize it.

A DVD+R will play on other DVD Players only after the
Disc is finalized.

I burn dvd -r and dvd+r and it will not play on it


It is possible that the disks are not finalized. You may need to configure it to auto finalize, which is off by default. It would be impossible to have more than one title on a disk if you always auto finalized. Check your manual, and finalize your disks. Many times marginal disks will play OK in the unit they were recorded on, but not so well in other players. The media (disks) could be the problem as well. On a side note, the DR410 will NOT burn DL (dual layer) disks. I hope this helps and good luck.

Dvdr3576h will record on dvd+r but will not play on other devices


You will need to finalize the discs on the Philips. I know the manual says that +r may auto-finalize, but I found that finalization sometimes fails on the first attempt. Go into the menu for the Philips, and select the Edit Disc -> Finalize option. Once finalized, your disc should play in other players.

No disc kicks disc out


I have the problem of it refusing the disc if the door opens before I have filled the whole disc and finalized it. As long as I don't open the door till the disc is full and finalized, it works.

Finalizing


-R and +R auto-finalize, only +RW and -RW require manual finalization - if the option is no longer available, it is because the discs are already considered finalized by the player. If the disc edit option is greyed out, and you cannot play the discs in another player, then the recorder will need to be replaced b/c it is consistently producing bad recordings. Try unplugging and replugging the recorder once just to be sure it isn't a temporary problem.

Recording problem


I have had two of these recorders, Using only Sony + discs or rewriteables is my solution, I will not use any thing else. It may work 1-3 times on others brands then start throwing coasters.
As to renaming, on my model I pull up the tiltle menu then select Try using rewriteables for the other problem as well My model is a little older and lets me take disc out without finalizing then when inserting select title, hit edit on remote and select rename. Maybe if you can skip the finalizing (as with rewritables it will help
