In order to Finalize you have to plug in the power adapter.
It took me forever to figure it out.

The DC310 can only Finalise a disc if it is plugged in, or if the battery is at EXACTLY 100% charge.

I believe it's a safeguard, against possibly having the finalisation interrupted by a loss of power due to a less than fully-charged battery. It may be that this process, once begun, cannot be interrupted withoutlosing all data on the disk ...?

I got a new machine, when I transfer from VHS to DVD-R it records, but will only play on the machine I recorded on, it doesn't load on other DVD players, why is that?


You need to FINALIZE the DVD-R you recorded in that unit for it to be playable on other DVD players. This function should be part of the on-screen menu for your unit. (in Panasonic DVD recorders, it's under DVD MANAGEMENT in the FUNCTIONS menu).

If the disc you recorded is already loaded, but stopped, press SETUP on your remote - an on screen menu should appear.

Using the UP/DOWN arrow keys, select DVD MENU and press ENTER. Use the UP/DOWN arrow keys again to select FINALIZE and press ENTER.

A message box will popup 'Finalize disc?' use the UP/DOWN arrow keys to select YES then press ENTER. Finalizing should start and may take a while to complete.

Once complete, the disc is now playable on other DVD players. (from page 32 of the owners manual with the heading 'PLAYING THE DISCS IN OTHER DVD PLAYERS')

Whats a dual layer disc mean then?


A dual layer disc is a DVD which is able to hold double the info.( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVD#Dual-layer_recording )
Dual-layer recording (sometimes also known as double-layer recording) allows DVD-R and DVD+R discs to store significantly more data-up to 8.54 gigabytes per disc, compared with 4.7 gigabytes for single-layer discs. Along with this, DVD-DLs have slower write speeds as compared to ordinary DVDs and when played on a DVD player a slight transition can sometimes be seen between the layers. DVD-R DL was developed for the DVD Forum by Pioneer Corporation; DVD+R DL was developed for the DVD+RW Alliance by Philips and Mitsubishi Kagaku Media (MKM).[23]
A dual-layer disc differs from its usual DVD counterpart by employing a second physical layer within the disc itself. The drive with dual-layer capability accesses the second layer by shining the laser through the first semitransparent layer. In some DVD players, the layer change can exhibit a noticeable pause, up to several seconds.[24] This caused some viewers to worry that their dual-layer discs were damaged or defective, with the end result that studios began listing a standard message explaining the dual-layer pausing effect on all dual-layer disc packaging.
DVD recordable discs supporting this technology are backward-compatible with some existing DVD players and DVD-ROM drives.[23] Many current DVD recorders support dual-layer technology, and the price is now comparable to that of single-layer drives, although the blank media remain more expensive. The recording speeds reached by dual-layer media are still well below those of single-layer media.
There are two modes for dual-layer orientation. With Parallel Track Path (PTP), used on DVD-ROM, both layers start at the inside diameter (ID) and end at the outside diameter (OD) with the lead-out. With Opposite Track Path (OTP), used on many Digital Video Discs, the lower layer starts at the ID and the upper layer starts at the OD, where the other layer ends; they share one lead-in and one lead-out.

Everything is the same except you have to choose "DVD-R 9.0G" at the bottom of the DVD maker window. R4.5G is single layer and 9.0G is dual layer.

Finalizing DVD-R fails, rendering Verbatim disc non-readable


You might try finalizing the disc in a PC using IMGBURN or other DVD recorder software. It couldn't hurt...

Hi, I bought Bose 3 2 1 SERIES 11 Home system. but i cannot play wedding dvds on my system. All hollywood movies plays ok. I tried Verbatim DVD R & DVD-R there is no picture but the sound is there....


I would say that as with many manufacturers, the Bose 3-2-1 is meant to play Dual Layer DVDs. Since they hold data on 2 separate layers of the disc, these hold twice the amount of data than the Dvd+r or -r that you're using. When the Bose system tries to read the 2 layers and only finds one it, will not recognize the dvd. If you don't have a Dual-Layer burner and Dual Layer discs to burn to, you should upgrade your burning equipment. They're not that expensive these days. Cheers!

Want to make backup disc for my laptop & can't find a single person who can tell me what disc to use - please help. Do i use DVD R or DVD-R. Everyone seems to tell me that i can use either, but there's...


You can use DVD - or + media, it doesn't matter which. When recordable DVD's were just emerging, DVD - was used more for video and + for data for compatability reasons. In this day and age, 99.99% of DVD recorders are compatable with both. There is no benefit or drawback to using either. Keep in mind R media is recordable once while RW media can be erased and re-recorded.

One thing to keep an aya on is the dual layer thing. If you use a dual-layer disc you will need a burner that supports dual-layer and a reader (if need be) that supports dual-layer discs. Most newer DVD recorders and readers will work with dual-layer discs. The benefit to dual-layer is storing around 9 gigabyte of data verses storing around 4 gigabytes on a regular DVD.

Here is another suggestion for backups. Want to create your own backup Restore CDs? This is useful if you don't want to re-install and re-configure anything. If the computer goes down, just put in the discs and it will be just like you never left it when you created the backups. For this, you would need to use a product called Symantec Ghost. It is a part of the Symantec's Norton SystemWorks or something similar to that. I've used Ghost on hundreds of cases.

Hope this helps!

Finalizing both sides


A Dual Layered (DVD-R DL) disc has two recording layers on the same side of the disc. No recording is made on the 'other' side of the disc.

Finalising the disc will finalise both layers. Most probably your computer DVD drive cannot read both layers of the DVD-R DL disc. DVD-R DL discs can only be played back on DVD devices that are compatible with dual layered discs.

Check your computer DVD drive spec to see whether it can read DL discs.
