E/EBAY Cheers.,..,..,...., try another brand of disc like TDK .THEY R GOOD ..when u have recorded a movie go into youre menu and find FINALIZE ..when u have finalized the disc it will play on most dvd players good luck
Finalizing means that you're finished and you won't be putting anything else on the disc. Finalize it after you're done so it will play on other DVD players. If you have a rewriteable DVD, then you can go back and erase it and record over it later even though you've finalized it. If you have a -R or +R only, then you can't and whatever is on it when you finalize it will be on it forever..
VR mode or Video Recording mode is a feature on stand-alone consumer and computer DVD recorders that allows video recording and editing on a DVD rewritable disc.
In VR mode, users can create and rename titles for the scenes. Also, if a scene is deleted, the space allocated by it will be utilized later without the need of reformatting a disc.
If the user would like to record on the same disc again at a later time, in VR mode, users may eject the disc and it will not be finalized by the recorder until it is manually initiated. For the sake of comparison, any DVD disc recorded in VR's competitor V mode (or Video mode) will be automatically finalized before it is ejected by the recorder. Disc finalization is still required if the disc formatted for VR mode will be played in another DVD player.
Currently, users can only record in VR mode with the use of DVD-RW, DVD-RAM and DVD+RW discs, (updated in 2000 to accommodate DVD-R (General)) [DVD players marked “RW compatible” and “DVD Multi” can play DVD-VR recorded discs] and on some recorders, also on hard-disk drives.
I have had two of these recorders, Using only Sony + discs or rewriteables is my solution, I will not use any thing else. It may work 1-3 times on others brands then start throwing coasters.
As to renaming, on my model I pull up the tiltle menu then select Try using rewriteables for the other problem as well My model is a little older and lets me take disc out without finalizing then when inserting select title, hit edit on remote and select rename. Maybe if you can skip the finalizing (as with rewritables it will help
Have you tried the rewriteables, they don't require to be finalized at all. ILO's are real picky, I returned two to Walmart before discovering to use ONLY SONY + or the rewriteables(brand doesn't seem to matter on the rewritables, don't know why.
I couldn't figure out how to finalize the first disc I recorded either. It wasn't offered on the menu where the manual said it should be. I finally called Panasonic and found out that the disc I used cannot be finalized. I am new with all this, and I just used the DVD-RAM that came with the DVD recorder. This may be obvious to you, but DVD-RAMs can be used over and over again but cannot be finalized. The person recommended -RW that is rewritable but can also be finalized. Maybe this will help you, too.
In addition, if you have the correct disc, you should be able to go into "Functions," then "Other Functions," then "DVD Management," and see "Finalize" as an option there.
