Question about Philips Magnavox DVD/VCR Dual Player
I just recorded a DVD (dub from VHS to DVD) The DVD plays fine on the magnavox that made it, but in my other DVD player and my laptop will not play it. They just keep trying to 'load' the DVD. DVDs made in my laptop play fine in the Magnovox. A DVD made in another dubbing machine plays fine on my computer and in this Magnovox. Is this normal or is something wrong.
Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Your description indicates that the last step in the DVD recording has not been performed on these discs that were recorded on the Magnavox. This would be "finalize" or instruct the Magnavox that no other files would be written/recorded on the current disc. Thereafter, the Magnavox would complete the DVD disc making it playable in any other player. Normally, finalization would take a bit of time to complete.
Pls post back how things turned up. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
