Question about Sony RDR-VX515 DVD Recorder/VCR

Open Question

Can't read un-finalized dvd disks.......

Hi!

i was finalizing a dvd in my sony dvd recorder.
the power went off in the middle of the finalization process.
now the dvd disk can be read on my handheld vd recorder, but not by my dvd player hooked to the tv.

this brand of media has worked fine in this sony dvd recorder before so i doubt it is the recorder or the media.
also, the movie is there on the removable dvd disk , because it plays fine when in the handheld recorder.

what about the pc of software from cdroller.com that appears to be able to resolve this type of issue, a 'non-finalized properly' dvd disk?

thanks for any ideas/suggestions/resolutions !

SOURCE: Toshiba d-r4su won't finalize

Also if you use 16X media you need to contact Toshiba to get a firmware disc.  This has been known to happen to me a lot before I had a firmware upgrade.  The unit can record to 16X but not finalize.  I have always used Memorex media.

SOURCE: DVD -R finalizing

using a dvd+r with 1-16x speed is not advisable for this recorder. It may work but in the long run may cause some trouble. check the manual for compatible disc. it will give you hints on what disc to buy and use. Unfortunately this unit is only compatible with dvd+r dvd-r that are 8x speed or slower. hope this helps.

I have a jvc dr-mv150bj. I am knew to recording on DVD. I used the dvd to record the super bowl. I forgot to finalize and I was using a portable LCD projector. I unpluged the dvd recorder and took it...


finalizing completes the process of recording so that the disk can be read to play. Yes, probably if power goes off, you'll loose the recording as the disk can finish.
Basically, the code written at the end of recording creates a sort of index so the player knows how to read it.

Can not finalize disk


I have had loads of people ask me this question in just 2 weeks, so it often does happen okay?
Anyway you should not have to do a finalize on the disk, because when you stop filming, the camera reads it's end bit to the DVD auto, then after a few seconds you should be able to open the camera door.

Unit cant recoginze/ read a disk


Randy,

I had a dvd-r disc recorded from a Philips dvd recorder that had not yet been finalized when the Philips went bezerk and died. I replaced it with the Sony GX300 and just for an experiment, tried to finalize it in the Sony

It worked. Not to say that it has to work with only THIS combination of the 2 same dvd recorders or twisting the scenario around with the Sony doing the recording and the Philips doing the finalizing. I also have a Sony dvd/vcr recorder to compliment the GX300. I will have to record a disc on the GX300 and try to finalize it with the combo unit to see if it will do well as a back up.

Right now a disc that is not full yet (home movie from my kids birth) is reading "Disc Error" on the GX300. I may have to do it over or see if the combo unit will do the same finalizing as the GX300. It doesn't have the amount of features that the GX300 has but thats what you get with a combo unit vs. a stand alone recorder/player.

If you know someone with another recorder, try to finalize on it. If not , you could find someone on this sight that has a GX300 and mail the discs plus a smalll fee and have them mailed back. Or you could find a used one cheap at some store and return it if it doesn't finalize.

Good luck

Either my computer or dvd does not read movies recorded by this camcorder. Why?


hi. in many DVD camcorders. you are suposed to closed o finalize the dvd disk . by doing this it will be playback compatible with your pc or dvd player.

NOTE
after finalizing a disk you will not able to record any longer on that disk (DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RAM, DVD RW) If you record for 5 minutes and finalized the dvd it will have a 5 min movie !!!

You can not retrive unfinalised disk because no path was put into place to read the information that was burnt. Data yeap was burnt but way of reading it was put into place.
