Question about RCA DRC8335

Can't view a DVD Recorded on RCA DRC8335

I completed a recording of American Idol for my brother. It recorded picked up everything. I finalized the disc. I used a Maxell DVD-RW. I played it back on the system and everything is fine. But, when I go to play it on my computer and his as well, it won't play it. My computer says it is a blank disc and I went back and it recorded the entire show. What is wrong?

Four things:
1.Use Sony dvd-r(don't use rw)
2.Nero is a good idea,but you also need to select what type of DVD-R that you are using.
EX. DVD+R or DVD-R
3. Many of the home line DVD recorder/player on the market are not very compatible with different brands of DVDs.
4. Usually it is easier to have the DVD+R burn from the computer and play back on a home line dvd player or a dvd recorder/player.
Good luck!

RCA DRC8335 takes over an hour to finalize DVD


If not alot of info to be recorded use a lower record mode. Drop it to 2-4 hrs. Or you can fill the disc completely then try to finalize. Hope This Helps.

Limited viewing


It sounds like the recorder will only record the dvd+ format, which does NOT need finalizing to play in other machines. ( you can record a dvd- , play it back on the machine you recorded it on, but need to finalize it to play on other machines)
The other units may only accept dvd-.(dvd- being the same format as you would buy or rent a film on)
One option, record the dvd on a dvd+rw (if possible) then copy to a dvd-r using your computer. The average use of a dvd+ is 1000 recordings.
There are many free disc burning suites available to download. Just google "free disc burning software" and take your pick.
I use 1 called "magix goya base" for copying disc to disc and "NTI" for burning to HDD and then to disc, if you only have use of 1 drive.

Can't view DVD's burned from the tv on a DRC8335 RCA DVD recorder


If you do not finalize the disc then you can not play it back. Go back to your instruction manual and look under 'setting options'. There should be a choice to 'finalize disc before ejecting'. The recorder will not finalize a disc until it knows when you are done recording, so you have to tell it somehow.

Finalizing DVD


If you unplugged the recorder while this process was ongoing, it probably failed. You will need to record again.

Have a great day! :)
