    won't finalize discs eroor code 14 message say function terminated because of error on disc. disc are brand new and clean. I am extremely disapointed with this recorder. this is bullshit!

    I have studied this recorder over and over and I clearly understand the manual. I am having the same problem trying to finalize my disc. I will never purchase another Toshiba again as this is BS.



    It's not the operator it's the player itself. It has too many dysfunctional problems and customer service has no idea of how to help you.



    I will search for the firmware upgrade but I won't purchase anything for it.



    I will give this piece of junk to the goodwill if it doesn't work properly by 12-31-07.

    Exactly my problem, I have tried a multitude of different discs and always the same problem. It has a 10% sucess rate. I will never purchase a Toshiba DVD recorder again. This DVD recorder is JUNK!

    I keep trying and trying but it won't finalize. It used to work but now it doesn't. When I try to finalize, it always flashes "Error 14" I don't know what to do.

Check to see if you are using 16x media.  If you are you need to get a firmware upgrade from Toshiba.  Contact their support number listed inside of the manual.  They will ship you a dvd to insert into the unit.

Hit display to remove error message. Clean disc possibly several times. When completely dry, try again.

This seems to work most of the time. I record a full disc with timer. Turn on the recorder let it load the disc, then eject the disc, then close it and let it load. Go through the finalizing steps, at the end choose the recorder to shut off.This week I did three in a row and they all finalized ok.

Magnavox DVD recorder...finalizing problem


The manual isn't too helpful either - "Recording error other than below," it says. There are a couple of possibilities. The Philips/Magnavox/Funai recorders automatically record in VR mode when you use +R discs (there are two possible recording modes - V Mode and VR Mode). Is it possible that you have switched disc types lately? If you are currently using -R discs, switch to +R and vice versa. The manual states that +/-RW discs take a while to initialize.

I couldn't find a full factory reset on that one, so you may have to unplug the unit for about 20 minutes to restore all the defaults.

Another possibility: Finalization requires some extra space on the disc. If you accidentally pressed the button that changes the recording format between SP, EP, LP, etc., you may not be able to fit the same amount of video on the disc that you were able to fit before. You can change the format by pressing the Disc Mode button on the remote - LP Mode will fit 3 hours worth of recordings onto a 2-hr disc and is considered a "medium quality" recording. Try changing the Disc Mode to LP and see if it will finalize the next disc that you record. The downside of this possibility is that the discs that you have already made that are giving you errors are not "fixable" - you will will have to re-record the shows to a new disc in LP mode.

Good luck!

Error 14


Check to see if you are using 16X media. If so contact Toshiba for a fireware upgrade. If that is not the problem try cleaning the disc and cleaning the unit with a DVD Laser Lens cleaner. Then try again.

Recordes but dont play back


before you can watch a recorded DVD on another DVD player you must finalize the disc. to finalize the disc put the recorded disc into the DVD recorder, when the DVD loads it will show the titles that are recorded on the DVD on the screen
push the stop button it is the button with the square on it. the screen will go blank or it may let you watch whatever tv channel you are on if you have your tv ran through the recorder, push the setup buton a new screen will come up, with the arrow down button scroll down and highlight disc edit, press ok another screen will come up, with the arrow down button scroll down and highlight "finalize", press "ok" it is the button in the middle of the arrow keys
scroll up and highlight "yes" press "ok" the recorder will finalize the disc and it can be watched on any DVD player, just remember when you finalize a disc you cannot add anything else to the disc.
