    I need to find the entire manuals. Does anyone know where it may be obtained.

    My parents have the Memorex version of this piece of sh*t unit and we cannot finalize either. I have a call in to a tech support line but I doubt they'll be of any help. If you can, return the unit and try to find a different manufacturer as this is the most user unfriendly device I have ever seen.

    If I find a solution, I'll be back to let you know about it.

    I have tried the solution presented here and it does not work. I can't understand why, but it doesn't.

In stop mode, press "finalize" (last button in the top row of buttons), then press "play" (center button in the lower row of buttons).

I downloaded all my pictures on to a cd, loaded the cd in my asus notebook and nothing! how in the world do i put my pictures on the notebook from a cd?

Hello there.

Can that CD you burned be read on a different computer aside from where you burned it? Blank CD's should be "finalized" after burning it to be able to view it on different CD-ROMS. CD-roms which are not CD-writers cannot read "unfinalized" burned CDs.

To finalize it, insert back the same CD in your CD-writer and look for the option to finalize it.

If it is finalized and still can't be read by your notebook, try another brand of blank CDs.

Thanks for using Fixya!

I have lost the manual that goes with my anderson nicholson cd recorder home stereo model # E6906. i can not get it to finalize. can y ou please tell me how to?

The manual for Model E-6906 on page 31
1. Press the FINALIZE button, in the STOP mode.

2. Press the PLAY button to start finalizing. The display will show busy, during finalizing, wait until busy dissapears to complete the finalizing.

When the operation has been finished the NO TOC indicator turns off and the time display returns to the track/time display.
The instructions sound good but I can not get my CD to FINALIZE, even following the instructions. Let me know if this works for you.

I have tried to record from Tape to CD with No result. I have followed the instructions for this task, to the letter and still nothing on CD.

First make sure yoou are using correct cds. You need CDR Audio discs not blank pc media type (Yes they are different). Once you have the disc type right, make sure you are finalizing the disc as they will not play in other machines until u do this

I have an HP Pavilion mx704 desktop PC 2005 model, and I can not burn music onto a CD. This computer has a CD burner, and when I start burn of the downloaded song, it says insert disk, I put a blank CD-R...

What OS and burn software are you using? Can you see the music files when you look at the file explorer on the computer (My Computer or Computer in Windows and double click on the optical drive)? Check if the disc has any scratches.

If you see the music listed on the optical disc, check if the disc was finalized. (Again in Windows Computer, right click on the optical drive and it should be an option if the disc hasn't been finalized.)

If there are no files on the CD-R, make certain that the disc isn't being formatted before you try the burn. (Formatting should only be done on R/W discs.)

If the music files are on the optical disc and the disc was finalized, your CD player is not tracking across the disc properly. Try a lens cleaner. It may need repair and I've never successfully repaired a CD drive (the only ones I've had fail were in computers and were cheaper to replace). The mirror and the belt are the most likely places to have issues.

I hope this helps.

Lightscribe cd palys everywhere but my car stereo?

Finalize the CD.
If you used windows explorer to burn the cd you will have to download a freeware program like CDBurnerXP to finalize the disk.
