After dubbing from vhs to dvd, the dubbed dvd is placed into a PC but it comes up saying the dvd is blank..We used a dvd+R dvd. Any ideas?

First did you finalize the disc after dubbing? When the DVD/VCR recorder is in stop mode, press Menu and navigate to Disc Settings > Disc Finalize and select Finalize and press Enter. Select OK and then Enter again. (Navigate the menus with the up/down arrows followed by pressing enter. Use the right/left arrows to highlight an option.)

If the disc was finalized, try a different brand of DVD+R or a DVD-R disc. I've seen some DVD recorders that don't work well with some brands or types of discs. (The same can happen with computers - burning a coaster.)

The manual is available here: .

I hope this helps.

Need to know how to finalize recorded disc so that it can be played in regular dvd player

You can record and finalize DVD+Rs one time. After you fill a DVD+R or

complete all the recordings you want on a single DVD+R, finalize it.

Otherwise, the DVD+R will play only on this Recorder.To play the Disc on

other DVD Players, you must finalize it first.

Once you finalize a DVD+R, you cannot record on it anymore or make

editing changes.Therefore, make sure the Disc is as you want it before you

finalize it.


Press SYSTEM MENU. Press

; to select in the top left

corner of the menu bar at the top of the TV screen.


Press CH-

9 repeatedly to select in the second screen,

then press



Press CH-

9 repeatedly to select Finalize disc. Finalize disc

appears in the menu only when an unfinalized DVD+R is in the



Press OK.

"Finalizing" will appear in the menu.The process may

take a few minutes.

When finalization is complete, the Index

picture screen will reappear.

You cannot unfinalize a DVD+R, and you cannot record or

edit the DVD+R after you finalize it.

A DVD+R will play on other DVD Players only after the
Disc is finalized.

Finalizing a dvd fails to complete function.

The power supply board on the DMR-E85H has problems. The earlier boards suffered from leaking capacitors and the later boards from voltage regulator problems. Go to the following links for details and photos on how to fix: Replacing capacitors: Replacing the voltage regulator: Hope this helps. My machine had the same problem and has the later ps board. The voltage regulator replacement worked perfectly.

Finalizing DVD

If the size of the vhs recording was in 2hr mode, and the size of the recording itself is about 2 hrs, you may not have enough space to finalize. I would use your PC to finalize the disc - I use Dr. Divx, but you can find many finalizing programs out there.

DVD will not finalize

I have found that any disc faster than 4X will not finalize. 8x disc will record but not finalize. 16X disc will not even record. I haven't been able to find any D VD+R 4X. 4X disc work fine and will finalize if you can find any.
