Depending what software you are using, if using nero you get two choices whether to burn for your computer, or burn for use on most cd/dvd players. Choose that option. This option generally comes up on most dvd software programs before you press the burn botton. When you choose how you want to burn your dvd look at the options it gives you.

Will a dvd-rw play in a phillips player if it's not finalized


Yes, you need to finalize a disc to play it in a normal DVD player. The clip will need to be in a format the DVD player can understand as well, like an AVI file.

My dvd player plays dvd discs ok. but when i use dvd burned on my computer shows no disc.the same disc plays fine on my computer


Some DVD and Blu-Ray players will not play a burned disc until it has been finalized. Finalize the disc on your computer then see if it will play. (Finaalizing a disc means it can no longer be recorded to, by the way.)

Playing dvd's from camcorder on laptop...


I have this video camera. It seemed like a good deal at $200 at Christmas time. It is suppose to be able to record on DVD-R, +R disks. (re-writable and write disks) I have had issues with not being able to finalize the disk. I found you needed to keep at least 5 minutes on the disk to finalize it. It will not play in any DVD player or a Computer till it is finalized. The info stored on the disk is in RAW form. Finalizing it will create a "lead in" and "lead out" and a menu for your computer and/or DVD player to understand. A large part of whether it will play or not, is what is your DVD Player or DVD Drive on you computer capable of? DVD Players usually will play anything that has been finalized, same with your DVD drive on your computer. BUT! Yep there's a but, sorry. DVD players and DVD Drives sometimes can only read one type of disk. Either a DVD-R or DVD+R, some may not be able to read a re-writable disk too. Look through your manuals on your Laptop and your DVD Player(s) and try to match the correct media (i.e. DVD-R or DVD+R Write or Re-Writable) I found that between my PC and my DVD Player, that DVD+R would work without a hitch for both electonics. Download that software that Samsung gave you in with the video camera. It may end up loading the driver software to help you're computer to recognize the video DVD you are trying to play. Oh, and make sure you really do have a DVD player/burner drive installed. I went to play a movie on my wife's Laptop and found it came with a CD drive and no DVD drive. That's not what I ordered and I was about a year to late to complain to the company. :( Hope that helps.

typically you need to finalize the dvd prior to trying to play in another dvd player. look up finalizing dvds in your manual if that doesnt do it call the manufacturer.

Playing recorded dvds on another player


Re-finalize one more time. On some Philips/Mag players, finalize fails the first time.

If it still won't work, then use a computer program like Dr. Divx to finalize the discs.

Reading a DVD.


Try finalizing the disc with your PC using Dr. Divx or another finalizing program, and see if it will work in your DVD player. If that fails, then the DVD was burned in a format that the Toshiba will not recognize.

DVD PLAYS CD'S BUT WONT PLAY DVD'S


Aquarius0128 there are two things to consider here.. dvd's recorded on a computer need to be closed/finalized after you have recorded onto them in order to be used on a stand alone player.. they will play ok on original recorder because of the design of these machines finalizing prepares the structure of the disc so it can be recognised by other players as a dvd video disc.. you will usually see a 'finalize disc' option in your recording program

Second issue is this.. even if finalized an older (or even some modern) stand alone players will not recognise a recorded disc made on a computer or even if it can there are different formats DVD+R DVD-R and even DVD-RAM and DVD-RW (the two latter ones are rarely recognised outside a computer)
