Press the menu button on your remote - go to finalize disc - follow instructions. Note that VR discs can be played with many if not most DVD-players without finalizing. In fact I have had problems finalizing and unfinalizing discs back and forth. If the disc manager displays only unfinalize disc, the disc is already finalized.

    I omitted one step: After pushing "menu" go to Disc Manager and then to Disc Finalise and follow directions.

Can anyone with a RH1777 help me finalise my dvd blank disk with his/her recorder?


If you can't find someone with the same recorder you could try putting the DVD into a computer DVD drive. It might be possible to get the video files off the DVD. DVD files are called VOB. You can get free software that will play them. It might even rip the files from the disc for you. You can then transfer them to a DVD disc using the computer.

Tried to record on a DVD-R disc, but unit said that the disc was full. I then tried to finalize the disc, but the unit got stuck in the finalization process. I unplugged/replugged the unit to make it...


The most likely reason the unit got 'stuck during finalisation' is probably because there was insufficent space left on the disc for it to write the respective lead-out/menu data (or perhaps there was a bad disc sector) - disc full? Because you unplugged the unit from power point before it had finished, the disc is possibly corrupted now. Throw that disc out.

The manual clearly warns: Do not disconnect the AC power supply cord while finalising. This
can render the disc unusable.

In other words, you have lost that particular recording and you are wasting your time with that disc.

There is nothing in the manual to suggest the length of time required for DVD-R recovery - there is a recovery process for the whole unit (such as after a power cut while recording a timer program for example) but not for discs. I may be wrong here...

However, the upshot is you have lost a disc, not a recorder. Another drink coaster for your living room.

DVD-RW discs are ideal for temporary video recording and data backup, but they are not recommended for successful finalising, as there is no guarantee that the disc will work in another device.

Have you tried using DVD-R discs? these CAN be recorded in video mode AND finalised for compatible playback in other players. I assume the DMR-ES30V is a DVD/VCR combo unit - if so, the DVD recorder will not recognise RW discs; only DVD-RAM and DVD-R.

DVD-R discs are recommended for video recording and finalising in this model. (later model Panasonic DVD recorders allow RW disc recording).

HI, i try to copy a Hi8-Tape to DVD, t works but i can't play it on another DVD-Player. Whats the problem. Thank's.


Depending on the format of the DVDs you record, some may not be compatible for playback on other DVD players, even if you FINALISE the disc in this recorder before playing it anywhere else. Assuming you are using the correct DVD format (for example, DVD-R), did you finalise the disc in this recorder after transferring your tape? if not, that would be the reason why the DVD won't play in another machine (I am also assuming you have everything set up correctly to enable smooth transferring - picture, sound, etc.).

Most modern DVD players recognise various disc formats (+R/-R/-R DL etc) but all of these must be finalised in the appropriate drive prior to make playback anywhere else possible. There should be a menu option or similar on this model recorder which would allow you to finalise the recording - you should only do this if you are completely happy with what you recorded, and it turned out OK. Until you finalise the recorded disc it will not work anywhere else but the deck it was written in.

I hope there is no major issue with the deck in this unit which would prevent you from finalising your discs - and achieving some success with playback in other units. The last thing anyone would want is a batch of drink coasters.

Recorded DVD will not play in another player


Hey,
Maybe the format of your recorded movie didnt support your player..check out your manual for the supported formats and check the format of your recorded movie.If any of the format in the manual matches your movie format then it will definitely play..

Why can't l play DVD's recorded on this recorder on other player


DVDs come in different versions.
Try using the -R DVDs. Once your DVD recorder finalizes the DVDs they should on any DVD palyer.

Check your manual to find out the finalizing method for your DVD recorder.

I hope this solution is helpful. Let me know.
