I have a Magnavox ZC320MW8 DVD recorder. I am having a devil of a time gettng it to finalize DVDs. What do I need to do?

This I believe will come down to software. The DVDs are all copy protected but by no means is it high security. I would check into some firmware update or additional software to download on to the recorder to open and finalize.

Recorded dvds wont play in other dvd players

You have to finalize the disc. if the disc goes to the end it will finalize the disc automatically. If there is some part of the disc not used you have to do it yourself. IN DVD MODE PRESS SETUP, THEN DISC EDIT, THEN FINALIZE. FINALLY PRESS YES. That should do it.

Finalizing Discs

The only reason that you have to finalize a DVD-R disc is so that you can play it back in an external DVD. Once finalized, you can no longer add motion video to that particular disc. Discs that are not finalized can still be played back when inserted in the DVD-camcorder.
