You have to use the Magnavox dual to finalize the discs, and then they should be able to play on other players. I don't have a manual for that exact recorder, but in general you would go to the Settings Menu of the DVD player --> go to Disc Edit --> and then select Finalize - the exact pathway might be a bit different on that particular recorder. Once you have finalized one of your discs, try it on another DVD player and see if it works. Good luck!

There is a possibility that the DVD was not burnt to be compatible with other players. Or the player you are trying to play it on does not play burnt DVDs.

DVD does not play on other players or computer


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.

Viewing a recorded DVD+R on PC


I am assuming you have an actual dvd drive of some sort installed in your computer. The problem you may be having is a missing codec. This problem can be solved by downloading a VLC player which has most needed codecs pre installed. This program is freeware and can be easily found online. I hope this helps. Good Luck!
