SOURCE: 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!

SOURCE: I have a Magnavox ZV427MG9 DVD recorder. I follow

what you do after you label the recording you play the dvd selecting the image and then play then stop it then select setup.
The instruction book doesn't follow through properly and I lost a dvd that way before I realized what it was after trying on a test DVD different things to get back to the setup screen that was supposed to have the finalize on it.
It's also a 1/4 inch to wide to fit on my shelf so it sits on top and blocks the remote sensor on the tv and makes tv control a bit difficult. The copies if you get them right at the fastest speed are very good though.
Many VCR's are protected from copy. Some start with that right away disabling the copy process others wait till thee film is half recorded. I understand some makes don't respect the copy proofing on tapes. I am not so experienced to say for sure that is so.

Finishing / finalizing DVD should be on the DVD recorder that you recorded previously..
Put it back in..
go to MENU
and look for FINALIZE title under RECORDING menu..

I Have a Magnavox MWR10D6 DVD Recorder Certain shows or movies i try to record , I get a pop-up saying " Cannot record in +VR mode " . What is +vr mode and how do I change it?


VR mode or Video Recording mode is a feature on stand-alone consumer and computer DVD recorders that allows video recording and editing on a DVD rewritable disc.
In VR mode, users can create and rename titles for the scenes. Also, if a scene is deleted, the space allocated by it will be utilized later without the need of reformatting a disc.
If the user would like to record on the same disc again at a later time, in VR mode, users may eject the disc and it will not be finalized by the recorder until it is manually initiated. For the sake of comparison, any DVD disc recorded in VR's competitor V mode (or Video mode) will be automatically finalized before it is ejected by the recorder. Disc finalization is still required if the disc formatted for VR mode will be played in another DVD player.
Currently, users can only record in VR mode with the use of DVD-RW, DVD-RAM and DVD+RW discs, (updated in 2000 to accommodate DVD-R (General)) [DVD players marked “RW compatible” and “DVD Multi” can play DVD-VR recorded discs] and on some recorders, also on hard-disk drives.

Recorder fails during 92% finalizing.


The free CDBurnerXP Pro is supposedly able to close unclosed disks, but I have never figured out how to do it. Maybe you'll be luckier than me or the newer version is more user friendly.

Recorded dvd will not play


You have to finalize the disc. Get out of disc menu and press setup on remote. Select disc edit and finalize then it will play on other dvd players.

Recorded dvd


You are probably having an issue with the discs rather then what you are trying to play them on.
The discs need to be finalized before they can be used on another player.

  1. Put the disc in the drive (the ones you have already recorded)
  2. Press SETUP on the remote
  3. Select - Disc Edit Press OK
  4. Select - Finalize Press OK
Wait until it is finished then try to play them on another player.

WHEN I RECORD A DVD IN MY MWR 10D6 DVD RECORDER IT IS NOT ABLE TO BE PLAYED IN MY OTHER DVD PLAYER WHICH IS A TOSHIBA. WHEN YOU PUT THE DVD IN IT ALWAYS SAYS PLEASE CHECK DISK. THIS ONLY HAPPENS WITH DVD'S...


When you burn your DVD the disc has to go thru a FINALIISATION process before it can be used on other DVD players. Sounds like either your recorder hasn't run the finalisation or it doesnt do one, in which case your DVD's wont work on another player. Check thru your menu's for a FINALISATION option and make sure you run it.
