Question about Sharp DV-NC80 DVD Player/VCR

Auto Initilizing of disk unwanted

When we put a disk in it goes straight into initialize the disk which therefor sets up the recording and finalizing in VR mode, which must be default of the player. I dont want it to record, inilialize or finalize in this mode. By doing so it makes the disks unplayable in other players and my computer.
Can I change the mode on this model LG (RC299) Ive read the manual thru and thru and they have some imdemnity at the front saying its not their problem if disks recorded on this machine dont play in other dvd players. Is it possibly the disks Im using ( they are cheapies) but they are DVD -R are the problem? Heellllp!!! I spent way too much money on this very average machine, this should be a function that is compulsary. Thanking anyone in advance with some assistance..

My apoligies... it was that some disks hadnt been finalized, it just so happened that the the three I stuck in the player hadn't been finalized. Big coincidence that i chose those particular three. But its all good now.. the other player plays them... stoked.

How do I make my goodmans digital tv recorder to actually record? It set up fine, but wont record.


I'd guess that the hard disk is on its way out.

Any computer repair shop will be able to test the disk for a nominal sum, and to replace it if you so wish.

Can you initialize a DVD-RW after you have recorded on it?


hi its geoff
yes you can. i dose say that no more recording can be done after the disc is finalized (thats true, you first have to unfinalize the cd to write more files on it.but you can initialize the disk at any time but you lose the recorded content(it frormats the disk) then you can use the disk over and over again. remember finalizing and unfinalizing requires you to plug the mains charger into the camcorder it assumes theres not enough power in the battery to do the job and will need the mains every time.but initializing only requires sufficient battery power .

Can not finalize disk


I have had loads of people ask me this question in just 2 weeks, so it often does happen okay?
Anyway you should not have to do a finalize on the disk, because when you stop filming, the camera reads it's end bit to the DVD auto, then after a few seconds you should be able to open the camera door.

On my Marantz CDR-630, how do you erase unwanted tracks after recording and before finalizing. I see there's a "erase" button but it won't do anything. Fred, fred@katli.com Thanks!!


Which recordable disks are you asking about? "Erase" will only work on CD-RW and does nothing on CD-R.

Once you've recorded onto CD-R all you can do is add additional material to it until the disk is finalised to allow it to be played on virtually all CD players. The same goes with CD-RW, but with those you have the option to erase the entire disk and start again from scratch. You can also delete individual tracks from a CD-RW but the space does not become available for additional recordings until the disk is totally erased.

Perhaps you'll find the .pdf manual to be of use:-

I hope that this has answered your question, all I ask in return is that you return the favour by rating my answer.

I burn dvd -r and dvd+r and it will not play on it


It is possible that the disks are not finalized. You may need to configure it to auto finalize, which is off by default. It would be impossible to have more than one title on a disk if you always auto finalized. Check your manual, and finalize your disks. Many times marginal disks will play OK in the unit they were recorded on, but not so well in other players. The media (disks) could be the problem as well. On a side note, the DR410 will NOT burn DL (dual layer) disks. I hope this helps and good luck.

Finalizing


Use a name-brand DVD, such as HP, Verbatim, etc. and make sure it is a DVD+R or DVD-RW/-R disk only.
It is most likely that the DVD you are using is not compatible.
The disk is still usable, but you can only read it on that player.
