Will not read disk recorded on Samsung DVD digital Camcorder

I recorded a disk on my samsung DVD camcorder. It is a Sony DVD+RW disk recorded in VR mode. It plays in the camcorder and in a DVD player but will not play or even be recognized by my Plextor 740A burner. When I load the disk into the burner and open the disk, it does not show anything on the disk. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

The disk needs finalizing.
However this then will make the disk unusable for anything else
Switch to CR R or DVD R as appropriate

Cannon DVD Burner DW100

I had this problem also when trying to connect to my HF200. I found a solution. The DVD recorder does not like MXP recordings, in fact it hates them. You will have to make sure no MXP recordings are present on your SD card/Hard drive. Then any recordings you make with the intension of recording to DVD need to be made in FXP mode or below. But remember if you have a selection of recordings on your SD/HD and just one is in MXP mode, you will get the error 'Operation cancelled'. Just as a sidenote, I phoned canon support about this problem, they were useless, promised me a callback that I never got!

Samsung SHW08A DVD±RW doesn't burn dvd+r

Its because you need a firmware update. The media you are currently using isn't recognized. I stumbled in here with the same problem. I haven't been able to find an update, so I will probably have to try a different brand of disc myself. The burner worked fine until I tried using a new pack of Verbatim discs.
