RCA DRC8005N Will not finalize discs

I go through the finalize portion of the the dvdr and it goes through all of the steps, when I put it in another dvd player it won't play, like it was never finalized. But when you put it back in the recorder it plays like it is finalized. What is going on?

Re: RCA DRC8005N Will not finalize discs

Well the problem is that the machine are not closing the dvds, you say you go step by step, but it realy is not closing the disc, it can play the not close dvd, but you cant play in a regular dvd player, I dont think is a cleaner problem, but try any way, blow dry air by the dvd port, and see, if not you got a damage one...god luck

My recorder DVDR 3330H has the "finalize" in the menu disk but I cannot click on it .

Probably you don't have a DVD+/-R disc inserted but a DVD+/-RW. A rewritable disc can't be finalised and doesn't have to be.

All units are different but you'll insert the disc to be finalized,
go into your disc menu, edit disc and you should see a finalize disc.

The disc will finalize (this usually takes a few minutes).
You will no longer be able to record on this disc so make sure you are finished with it!
If the disc is not finalized, you will not be able to play it in any DVD player other than the one you recorded it in!

I know it's not step by step but I hope this helps :)

Can't view DVD's burned from the tv on a DRC8335 RCA DVD recorder

If you do not finalize the disc then you can not play it back. Go back to your instruction manual and look under 'setting options'. There should be a choice to 'finalize disc before ejecting'. The recorder will not finalize a disc until it knows when you are done recording, so you have to tell it somehow.

DVD recorder will not record

Sounds like the slider assy., tracking motor, or the rail is gunked up. If you know how to disassemble the slider by all means take apart ans see if theres any dirt or hair tangled inside the gears or track. If you dont, you should let a tech take a look at it, as if you take something apart that shouldnt have been disassembled, it will cost ya double to repair. Also the tech will have all the proper alighnment tools and disc to properly get the unit back up and running. Not alot a consumer can do nowadays to repair solid state electronics! Good Luck
