You have to set the Source to L3 (DV) with teh Source button on the remote.

To FORMAT a new RW disc, the unit must be on L3 before inserting the disc cuz the Format happens immediately and is very quick on a +RW, slower on a -RW, but it happens right away. You could insert a RW disc and not realize it hadn't been Formatted for 1st use, after which it doesn't need formatting again.

You can Finalize with the unit NOT on L3 first cuz that op is not automatic... you still have to select Finalize from the Disc Edit menu.

When trying to finalize DVD disc, why do I often get error E 22 Cannot record on this disc (DVD-R)?

I don't know what means error E22 but if you start experience frequently the record errore your burner is failing. Check connections in your computer, specially the data cable if you are using SATA. Use cables with a "clip" so your connection should not get loose.
If everyting is right and you still can't finalize correctly your recording, change your DVD burner

How to finalise dvd in real burner

1 Open the DVD creation software of your choice. Exact steps will vary based on the software you choose. Nero and Sonic are two popular choices.

2 Create a new DVD project or open an existing project. You will need a blank DVD or an un-finalized DVD with an existing project on it in your DVD burner.

  • 3 Add any files to your project. All programs have an "Add Files" and "Browse" button in order to add files. To remove any files, select the files in the list and press "Delete." Be sure your project is exactly like you want it before proceeding.

  • 4 Press "Burn" to burn you project or changes to DVD.
  • 5 Press "Finalize" or "Finalize Project" when prompted. There will be a prompt after the burn process has completed. If you don't see a prompt, look at the options menu that is to the left or top of the screen. Select "Finalize" or run your mouse over the toolbar buttons until you find the "Finalize" button. Select or press "Finalize" to finalize your DVD project. Select "Ok" or "Yes" to confirm.
  • 6 Eject your DVD and test it in a regular DVD player. A regular DVD player is one that doesn't burn DVDs and is more than likely a portable DVD player or one that is connected to your television.

    I have just burned digital photos to dvd+rw disc.When I insert the disc into our Philips blue ray player (BDP3000) it reads ''unknown disc.''Why is this? The manual states that these discs should be...

    Chances are the disk is not finalized. dvd+r and dvd+rw need to be finalized before they can be viewed on any other player than the one they were made on. If you have the instructions to the burner, then it should be easy to learn how to finalize the disc. If not, I would suggest googling the burner and find online instructions. Good luck!

    I used ez record to copy a vhs tape to a DVD-R disk. at the end of the tape I pushed the open/close button but the disk did not finalize. We have had the unit for several years but I have never been able...

    If you are using Nero, just put in your unfinalised dvd.
    open nero and select the "Burn" tab from the options.
    Now click on the "Finalise DVD" checkbox.
    Now click on Burn, and it will finalise the dvd.
    There is a corresponding Tab on most recording programs.
    You really need to get another, better, burner than EZ. I nearly always use UltraISO, it has a built in burner, based on Nero, and just works. Another one is CopytoDVD... it is great.
    Also I find it is better to NOT use those horrid re-recordable discs.

    I dubbed home movies from VHS to DVD but I can't get it to finalize

    On PC or stand alone DVD burner?
    On PC tell burning application to finalize because you most probably are burning multi-session DVD's now and not all DVD players old type accept unfinalized discs.
    On standalone: go with remote to menu item where to finalize that multisession DVD (these units always make default because of design multi-session discs)
