SOURCE: Recorded DVD wont play on any other DVD Player

to finalize press setup on remote control, then use the up and down buttons on the remote [white ones in middle] to go to disk edit, it will then say finalize so move the white buttons again to go to finalize ,then push ok button. I can record but it comes up disk error when I try to finalize . Does anyone know what causes that?

SOURCE: How can I record teletex


You cannot record teletext subtitle if you record straight from the programmed channel on DVD. For that reason you cannot record teletext subtitles using programmed recording.

To record teletext subtitles you need to set the TV as an external input and record straight from TV input..

In order to do this:

  1. Connect a TV OUTPUT to DVD INPUTusing AV Cables (red-white-yellow) or SCART. ( HDMI may not work).
  2. Turn on TV and start teletext subtitle page.
  3. Set the DVD recorder to the TV input using DVD remote (e.g. L1 or L2- Ex1 or Ex2, AV1 or AV2 and similar depending on DVD model) - T know it is the right input set TV on recorder channel and you will see TV channel with teletext.
  4. Start manually the recording.
The recording done in this way will include teletext, on screen display (e.g. volume bar) or whatever is actually displayed on TV.

Comes up succesfully copied but wont let me finalise

This is almost always a laser problem within the recorder. The recorder can write the disc but needs to write the TOC (table of contents) and can't do it (That's finalising). On occasion, the make of the DVD-r or DVD+r (they are different!) can fail to work on some machines. Try a different make of disc.

Model DMR-ES30VEB. I have had this recorder for a few years now but since I got a new Sony TV at christmas I am having problems recording. When I record a programme the DVD says it does not recognise the...

DVD-RW discs are ideal for temporary video recording and data backup, but they are not recommended for successful finalising, as there is no guarantee that the disc will work in another device.

Have you tried using DVD-R discs? these CAN be recorded in video mode AND finalised for compatible playback in other players. I assume the DMR-ES30V is a DVD/VCR combo unit - if so, the DVD recorder will not recognise RW discs; only DVD-RAM and DVD-R.

DVD-R discs are recommended for video recording and finalising in this model. (later model Panasonic DVD recorders allow RW disc recording).

Have you finalised your disc in your dvd? I was having problems with my pc reading discs until I did this ,although some pcs wont take dvd-r discs and will only accept dvd-+r so it could be that.
