LG DR4810 DVD recorder says disk is full when it's not.
I am trying to record various bits onto a DVD-R which is supposedly 120mins, but after recording an 8 minute clip the DVD recorder says the disk is full. It is not finalized, but I cannot add anything else to it. It has obviously done something to the disk, as my laptop says it is full too, but I can see from the marks left on the disk that only a tiny bit of it has been used. Please help!

make sure the disk is finalised after recording, if this does not help then the bit-rate it uses for xp may not be compatable with other dvd players, in which case stick to sp,lp or dual-layer sp is best if ou can.
try sothink dvd moviemaker software or dvdvideosoft software from www.cnet.com/download.....most dvd recorders will burn (check your manual for the correct type (+ / -) and brand that works best)...but wont let you play on other machines unless you format and the other machine is just as new as the recorder...(our older dvd players will not play these new dvd)
As long as the DVD is not copy protected, you can transfer contents onto your PC for viewing. You will need DVD player software which is usually pre-installed on most newer computers, and you can use various programs for coping the files. The Nero 9 Suite http://www.nero.com has programs that will allow you to do this or the NCH Software Suite http://www.nchsoftware.com/index.html has many utilities for video. There are many others available and likely some Shareware as well for this if you Google "Copy DVD to Hard Disk".
Hope this helps.
There are two things are likely that can cause this: media and copyright protection. If you use DVD-RW or DVD-RAM, you should be able to copy shows ONE time onto the DVD. If you use DVD+RW, or DVD+R, it may issue a copy protection message just before it stops recording. If the media is bad, it can also cause the machine to stop recording, I believe. You could put it into a PC and try erasing the contents before re-trying to use it in the DVD recorder. tom
