Question about Protron PD-DVR100 DVD Recorder

Open Question

Can Not finalize.

Recorder PD-DVR100 (First usage of new machine) Recorded about 3 hours of video and attempted to finalize. Selected "Finalize Disk" in the Disk Edit menu. Clicked "Yes" to answer the confirmation dialog question; "Do you want to continue?". The dialog screen was replaced by the previous four options. Nothing further happened. Page 20 of the User's Manual states that this could take up to one hour . After more than a half hour with absolutely no activity indicated I clicked "Play". The videos played perfectly in the PD-DVR100 drive but would not play in either of two other known to be good DVD players. I assume that no finalization was performed. Did I miss a step or is there a malfunction in this new machine?
Please advise,

Might just be that disc. Have you tried another? Maybe try doing that and then see what happens. If it happens again, try another machine. If it works in the other one, you'll need to replace your burner.

Won't play on any other dvd

You have to use your friend's DVD recorder to finalize the disc. Once the DVD is finalized, it will play in other DVD players.
On your friend's DVD recorder, pop the disc in, and use his remote to go to Setup --> Disc Edit --> Finalize --> OK

Symphonic WFR205 DVD recorded but not finalized

I have similar problem. I have recorded all of my old tapes on a DVD-RW disc (lots of time spent on it) and as I wanted to finalize them - it would display an recording error. Recently I purchased a new Sony blue ray player and I realized it would play the not finalized discs. I am still looking for a solution how to record these memories on a PC so I can edit them.

Finalize disc

Is that in a PC or a standalone DVD Recorder.
If it's in a PC then the burning software you use sholud have it in the help file.
If it's a standalone DVD Recorder it will tell you in the user manual. If you don't have it and you can post the make and model number of the recorder someone here may be able to tell you where to get it from.

Recordes but dont play back

before you can watch a recorded DVD on another DVD player you must finalize the disc. to finalize the disc put the recorded disc into the DVD recorder, when the DVD loads it will show the titles that are recorded on the DVD on the screen
push the stop button it is the button with the square on it. the screen will go blank or it may let you watch whatever tv channel you are on if you have your tv ran through the recorder, push the setup buton a new screen will come up, with the arrow down button scroll down and highlight disc edit, press ok another screen will come up, with the arrow down button scroll down and highlight "finalize", press "ok" it is the button in the middle of the arrow keys
scroll up and highlight "yes" press "ok" the recorder will finalize the disc and it can be watched on any DVD player, just remember when you finalize a disc you cannot add anything else to the disc.

Won't record DVD+R

I have been working throug a stack of 25 Windata, the cheap ones. DVD +R/ They have been working 100%, every time. The only problem I have is when I leave machine to shut itself down because I am not there to stop it at end of movie.. The disk becomes so full that I cannot get to disk to finalize and it will never play on another machine. When I hit the Disk Edit on such an overcrammed disk, the drop down menu with Finalize at bottom does not come up Only the hand with the red crossout sign over it comes up..
