Question about Sony DRU 510A DVD±RW Burner

1 Answer

Can not finalize disk (cd or dvd)

My Sony DVD RW Dru-510A worked wonderful until my HP with XP crashed and I had to reinstall EVERYTHING! I got everything back online and my DVD burner didn't come back all the way! It plays, but can not finalize a cd or dvd. Sony said it was HP problem, and HP said it was Sony problem. I get either can not finalize disk message or can not find drive. Thanks for the help!

Re: Can not finalize disk (cd or dvd)

I just burned 6 movies, I noticed that when it goes to finalize, it ejects before finalization is complete. I use FAB Platinum 4.1. I'm going to go into the settings and use Nero burning rom before I remove my Sony and put in my other burner (Plextor) better then Sony I think. I used Nero before and it helped, maybe it will help this time. Why 3 movies did not play, and the others did is beyond me. Dan J

Sony CD / DVD DRU-510A. Reads CD's and DVD's, burns CD's, but will not recognize blank DVD's. Sony support page states: 4X DVD-RW Media Compatibility Notice Please Note: 4X DVD-RW media is not...

Well a quick check here says it should manage 4 x DVD write speeds:-

The only thing I can think of is that lens may have some dust on it, try a CD lens cleaning disk or a blast of air from an aerosol spray can.

After this, I'm afraid its down a replacement.

Finalize a dvd made in a video camcorder

you cannot finalise after the dvd has been recorded on as if it's not rewritable then it cannot be reused, or rewriten or altered in any way.
