    I have the same problem, I hooked a camcorder to it and burned a dvd, but it wouldn't play in another dvd player. When I go to edit there is no button to finalize it. The recorder is a Magnavox MWR20V6, I have no manuel anymore.

Insert the dvd you want to finalize. When the menu loads press Stop and then press Setup on your remote control. Scroll down to disc edit and press the Enter or OK button. You should see the word Finalize there, select it and then it will ask to Finalize Yes or No. Select Yes and it should finalize your disc perfectly and play on any player.

How can i finalize after just a few minutes recording


As long as there is sufficient space on the disc to store the finalization data. Press Setup, then select Disc Edit (up/down arrows) and press OK. Then choose Finalize and again press OK. You will see a confirmation window, select Yes and press OK again. Wait for the finalization to complete.

The manual is available here: http://www.funai-corp.com/6pdf/om/MWR20V6.pdf . See page 37 for the screen captures.

I hope this helps.

My disc records fine, plays great on the Magnavox, but no other player can read the disc?


You must finalize a disc before it can play on other machines. Please refer to your documentation for how to finalize a disc.

Dubbed DVDs will not play


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!

Magnavox DVD recorder...finalizing problem


The manual isn't too helpful either - "Recording error other than below," it says. There are a couple of possibilities. The Philips/Magnavox/Funai recorders automatically record in VR mode when you use +R discs (there are two possible recording modes - V Mode and VR Mode). Is it possible that you have switched disc types lately? If you are currently using -R discs, switch to +R and vice versa. The manual states that +/-RW discs take a while to initialize.

I couldn't find a full factory reset on that one, so you may have to unplug the unit for about 20 minutes to restore all the defaults.

Another possibility: Finalization requires some extra space on the disc. If you accidentally pressed the button that changes the recording format between SP, EP, LP, etc., you may not be able to fit the same amount of video on the disc that you were able to fit before. You can change the format by pressing the Disc Mode button on the remote - LP Mode will fit 3 hours worth of recordings onto a 2-hr disc and is considered a "medium quality" recording. Try changing the Disc Mode to LP and see if it will finalize the next disc that you record. The downside of this possibility is that the discs that you have already made that are giving you errors are not "fixable" - you will will have to re-record the shows to a new disc in LP mode.

Good luck!
