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?

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

Your lite on has lost its mind and needs replacement.

Meanwhile a non rewritable disk cannot be erased. If not finalized it may not be read on another machine but the originating machine can read it.

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.

Cannot finalize dvd-r

Have solved the finalized problem by simply looking on the Canon website and read that you have to plug the camera into the wall to do it! If only they simply put this in the manual!!! Goodluck!

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.
