Re: finalizing a dvd

Try this. In your SETUP options, ensure that AUTO FINALIZE and FINALIZE AT END OF TIMER are turned OFF.

Insert DVD. Press SETUP button. Be patient. Once DVD has loaded the DISK FINALIZE option will be available. You can then FINALIZE.

I found it much cheaper to get DVD-R from Radio Shack (about $5 for 25) for VHS movies that I know I want to keep. They do record up to 6 hours, even though the packaging is unclear on this point.

Re: finalizing a dvd

If you use the +RW DVDs you don't have to finalize.

Magnavox dvd player dv200mw8 problems with dvr playing in black and white. The vcr plays in color. Please advise.


Thanks for using FixYa. Please check that all the cables are firmly plugged in and are selected in the setup menu for the kind of cable you are using viz. component, S-video or composite. If still the issue is not resolved then you’ll need to uninstall and reinstall the drivers. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

I have a magnavox mwd2205 dvd/vcr combo with no remote. I've tried programming it to my Charter cable remote and to a GE universal remote, but can't get it to do anything but turn the machine on and off....

This DVD/VCR isn't compatible with the GE Universal remote. Sorry.

I would recommend contacting Magnavox (actually FUNAI CORP.) at www., and seeing if they would be willing to send you a remote that was compatible with your player. There was another Magnavox player remote that also worked with Magnavox MWD2205. So it's possible that a number of remotes would work for you. Good luck! :)

I record a DVD from VCR tape and try to play on another device

In my research, I learned about finalizing the DVD, which was a new concept to me. I looked that process up in the manual and it did the trick.

Wont read dvd+r

This is a pretty generic problem with dvd recording on combos. The problem is that after you record to the dvd there is a procedure that is on your menu using your remote to finalize the recording so that it can be read on different players. Otherwise it can only be read on the one you recorded on. Go through your remote control menu options after the recording and look for the option that indicates finalize recording.
