Can't finalize disc

I get finished making disc but it won't finalize. It goes from the 2 minute countdown til about 1:47 then back to the main screen like it done but it is not. Sometime it will go from the 2 minute to 1:40 something and then starts to countdown from 4:00 minutes but shuts off about 3:40something and goes back to the main screen. Always have been using maxwell 80 minute 70mb gold audio cds. Can u help/

Clean the laser and use a different [brand] disc. Marantz CD recorders and particularly the CDR631 is very sensitive to disc brand/makes. My deck burns Taiyo Yuden and Mitsui (MAM-A) discs consistently with almost zero problems, but discs like Memorex, ProDisc and a few other cheaper ones can result in a hiccup or two. Also, no problems with TDKs and Imations so far.

By the way, I use all computer-type discs, but if you have problems, I heard you'll get better results using 'Audio' type discs...then what's the point of buying a Marantz "Professional" recorder if you're going to use 'Audio' recordable CDs?

HOW TO FINALIZE THE DVD CASSETE AND CONNECT TO T.V SET?


Finalising a disc enables the disc to be played on any other compatible machine. By doing this it changes the disc format so that you can no longer record to it turning it into a Play Only disc. On your Panasonic DVD Recorder you can record to many (if not all depending on the model) of the following DVD Disc formats to the limit of their capacity over multiple occasions. The disc in question can be played back and recorded to on the DVD Recorder during this time but until it is finalised it will not work on any other machine.
DVD Formats: DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD-RAM, DVD+R, DVD+RW.
How do I Finalise my disc?
  1. When you have finished the initial recording stop the disc and press the ~FUNCTIONS~button.
  2. Using the ~UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT arrows~ on the keypad select "To Others" and press~ENTER~.
  3. Using the ~UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT arrows~ on the keypad Scroll down to "DISC MANAGEMENT" and press ~ENTER~.
  4. When the disc management screen opens you need to use the ~UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT arrows~ on the keypad to scroll down to "FINALIZE" and press ~ENTER~.
  5. Using the ~UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT arrows~ on the keypad select "YES" and press~ENTER~.
  6. Using the ~UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT arrows~ on the keypad select "START" to begin finalizing the disc, please note by pressing start here you will no longer be able to record or edit the disc being finalized.
Finalizing may take up to 15 minutes.
Do not disconnect the mains power in this time. A message appears when finalizing is finished, press the enter button when this appears. It will now play on other compatible machines.

Do I just push finalize to finish the burning of the cd?


after you've finished recording press 'finalize' the recorder will then get ready for finalizing and then a countdown time will appear in the display eg '1:20' once this appears press 'play' and the recorder will start to finalize and the digits will count down to zero, once this has finished, your disc is finalized.

CD trays will not open.


Use a paper clip. If you push a wire in the holes of each tray it will release the trays. The proper holes look like little dashes on the face of each tray, one end or the other.

Finalizing


IF THAT DISC WAS RECORDED ON AND THEN REMOVED BEFORE FINALIZING IT WILL NOT FINALIZE. THE CAMERA LOOSES THE MAIN INFORMATION TABLE FOR THAT RECORDING. ONLY THING TO DO NOW IS, IF THE DISC CAN STILL PLAYBACK ON THE CAMERA THEN CONNECT IT TO A DVD RECORDER VIA THE AV PORT AND RECORD.
