Question about Philips Magnavox DVD+R/+RW Recorder/VCR

4 Answers

I have a Magnavox ZV427MG9 DVD recorder. I follow instructions on how to finalize recorded DVD but it doesn't work. I set up to finalize at the beginning and it won't work. When I try to finalize at the end of the recording,,instuctions say to push set up. I do this but nothing happens. I don't get the menu to finalize. What can I do? I can't play in any other DVD player without finalizing,

What you do after you label the recording you play the dvd selecting the image and then play then stop it then select setup.
The instruction book doesn't follow through properly and I lost a dvd that way before I realized what it was after trying on a test DVD different things to get back to the setup screen that was supposed to have the finalize on it.
It's also a 1/4 inch to wide to fit on my shelf so it sits on top and blocks the remote sensor on the tv and makes tv control a bit difficult. The copies if you get them right at the fastest speed are very good though.
Many VCR's are protected from copy. Some start with that right away disabling the copy process others wait till thee film is half recorded. I understand some makes don't respect the copy proofing on tapes. I am not so experienced to say for sure that is so.

SOURCE: cAN RECORD FROM VCR TO DVD+R, CAN PLAY DVD ON

Usually you finalize the disc after loading it with all the desired content (leaving a bit of space for the finalization). So if you are recording a TV show, depending on the setting (SP, LP, XP), you might finalize the disc after recording 4 1/2 shows. The How may vary by model but on my DVD recorder, I find the finalize command in the same menu area as adding a title and initializing a DVD-RW disc. So I press Setup to enter the OSD menu, then go down to Disc (looks like an optical disc) then right arrow to enter the sub menu. Then press down to Disc Finalize and the right arrow again and press enter. Select OK and Enter again. (RW discs can be unfinalized to add more content.) Then wait until the process is done.

I hope this helps.

When playing commercial DVD's, my DR-MV150B starts to stall. It stops with the picture on the televsion screen, but can't see the rest of the movie. Any thoughts? The disc does eject.


Try cleaning the laser with a bud, if not it's either the spindle motor or laser assembly,
