Re: dvr 1200 will not play

After you have recorded you must "FINALIZE" the disk in order to play it in other DVD players or CPU. Press EDIT scroll down to Finalize Disc then OK

When I record to dvd I can't plan on any other DVD player - can play on the toshiba dvr but nothing else?

Have you closed the recording? If the recording is not closed out, you will have trouble playing the DVD in other players.

It could also be that your DVD player you are trying to play on is too old or not designed to use burned DVDs. I also have trouble playing some burned DVD's in older DVD players, it has to do with how the recording is done, and there is nothing you can do about it. For example, I have a Sony 5 disc changer that came with a surround sound set up... nice DVD player, but will NOT handle DVDs burned on stand alone DVD burners or burned from a PC. It reads the DVD, and displays on the front of the player that it is not a DVD, and shows nothing on the TV.

DVD Movie

The reason I never completed my request was because I didn't realize right away that I do not even have a DVD drive. I only have a CD-rom. I know I sound pretty dumb, but I just took for granted that if I could burn CD's I could burn a DVD. Thanks for your help and consideration. Your program sounds great and I will keep it in mind for when I upgrade my PC. Thanks again!

DVR 1600

Start by checking the DVR format compatibility list, see if the dvd format matches. The check DVR settings for playing features that can be adjusted. Try other DVD's that have worked on your DVR previously.
