On some circumstances you cannot finalize disk, either if many sessions are opened , or if data stored is nearly taking the whole disk.

This recorder has many firmware problems. The one that is most annoying to me, and is repeatable every time, is that you cannot finalize a disk if you recorded it using the timer. If you try, you end up with a disk that just locks up the firmware

LG DVD recorder RH735T. Page 10 of the manual says to finalize a disc before you can play it on a different unit. But when I record something on a disc, the settings menu will not allow me to finalize


On my Toshiba DVD burners, you need to first open the DVD tray, and while it is open hit the regular menu, then DVD menu, select "FORMAT" from the DVD drop down menu, then "FORMAT MODE", which leads you to the 2 CRITICAL Choices :
1) Video Mode - Which has the DVD recording in "DVD Compatibility Mode" so it is "Compatible" with most other DVD Players
OR...
2) VR Mode- Which says "Editing Possibility mode" (Note you need a "+R DVD "to be able to do editing, at least on my machines.
Obviously you'll close the DVD tray to be ready to record
Finish the DVD, @ "DVD" Menu, & Finalize, or what you need with "VR"

I have recorded many DVD's with you Centrios EDW8020 it works great however I can not play them back on other DVD players. The disc may not been finalized to finalize them I can not acces Disc Utilities...


Hello Joe,

Most of these DVD recorders are really meant to be recorded and played basically on the same machine... Now if the DVD player (that you wish to play, is an older model that is the problem)
But, as far finalizing place the DVD unto tray... close it...now that menu (using the remote) press it..you should have a menu and top menu (top is settings) the menu is play dvd jump to next scene..in settings an Disc that is not finalized should be able to name it and customize it...note if you have use an DVD+/- R you must format prior to use (finalizing is on this same)

CAN RECORD FROM VCR TO DVD+R, CAN PLAY DVD ON SAME, BUT CANNOT PLAY ON OTHER DISC PLAYERS. I THINK THAT THIS IS BECAUSE I AM NOT FINALIZING CORRECTLY. WHEN AND HOW DO I FINALIZE A NEWLY RECORDED DISC?...


Usually you finalize the disc after loading it with all the desired content (leaving a bit of space for the finalization). So if you are recording a TV show, depending on the setting (SP, LP, XP), you might finalize the disc after recording 4 1/2 shows. The How may vary by model but on my DVD recorder, I find the finalize command in the same menu area as adding a title and initializing a DVD-RW disc. So I press Setup to enter the OSD menu, then go down to Disc (looks like an optical disc) then right arrow to enter the sub menu. Then press down to Disc Finalize and the right arrow again and press enter. Select OK and Enter again. (RW discs can be unfinalized to add more content.) Then wait until the process is done.

I hope this helps.

Just purchased - no manual - how do you finalize DVDs so they will play on other DVD players?


Using your remote, hit the function button. Scroll down to setup and right to disc setting. Enter on disc setting. Next screen will show 3 settings. Scroll down to finalize and hit enter. It will ask if you're sure you want to finalize. Enter yes. Remember; once you enter yes, there is no going back.

Finalizing


that's because u r in HDD mode. Change drive select to "dvd" , then "functions" will show: "disc setting" to include, disc name, pick menu, select first play, and Finalize.

I CANNOT FINALIZE DVD


This may be a little late but I just got off the phone with customer support. Once you have recorded the program you need to hit stop twice for the finalizing menu to come up. If you only hit it once you will get the disc menu with no option to finalize!!!
I know that this worked for us, I hope that it works for all of you :)

How to finalize


i have spent 2 months looking for this answer myself... and at last success! i downloaded the user manual from funai(they made this model) available here: http://www.funai-corp.com/6pdf/om/MWR10D6.pdf on page 38 it instructs you to press setup on your remote, from the drop down menu you need to select disc edit and then select finalize. this aggravated me at first because nothing happens when i hit the setup button, i powered off the unit and hit setup before the disc loaded. this step is not mentioned but is necesary. you cannot finalize a disc after it has loaded to the title menu.
