You need to "finalize" the dvd you created - usually on the machine that you created it on. The SONY RDR-VX525 finishes recording, then you have to go to the system menu and follow the prompts to do the "finalize". As it's finalizing, it should the word finalize on the front panel display. It'll run about a minute or two and then just stop without telling you what it did. It should be ready to play on any dvd player.

I assume you are finalizing the disk after record?

I have seen this on other players as well. What happens is the media your recording on is either too slow for the player and the player is recording faster than the media is supposed to handle. For some reason it works on the machine it was recorded on but nothing else.

Solution: Get media that matches the speed of the player.

If this is not the solution let me know I will get you one.

Recorded a movie on the DVR, played it & recorded it onto a Sony DVD-R with the Sony RDR-VX525, I believe it finalized & did everything it should. However, it won't play. It says disk error. I went...


what happened was that you probably chose a disc speed on the DVD that was too fast or slow for the dvd players that you are putting it in to. Try re recording it but when under the DVD section, on your remote, choose REC Mode till it says SP. That one should work on just about any dvd player. I had the same problem with mine.

Can't play Burned DVD's


This is because when you burn a DVD and want to use it on another unit you have to finalize it. Especially from another device such as your computer. You should have the option on your computer to finalize or make disc compatible.
