After recording a DVD in a DVD recorder you will need to finalize the disk. You should be able to put it in the original recorder and at least be able to watch the video.
If you are able to watch the video while you are recording then you should be able to record what you are watching. If you cannot see the video when it is sourced through the DVD recorder, then you need to adjust the input.

Are you using a DVD+RW disk? Unlike DVD-R, DVD+R and DVD-RW disks you cannot finalize DVD+RW disks on the Magnavox MWR10D6 DVD Recorder. Instead you have to make the disk compatable [Make Edits Compatible], this allows you to close the disk and play it on other DVD players.
go to: Setup ==> Edit Disk ==> Make Edits Compatible ==> Yes
Other than this nothing else comes to mind to troubleshoot this problem. Hope this helps.
Aquarius0128 there are two things to consider here.. dvd's recorded on a computer need to be closed/finalized after you have recorded onto them in order to be used on a stand alone player.. they will play ok on original recorder because of the design of these machines finalizing prepares the structure of the disc so it can be recognised by other players as a dvd video disc.. you will usually see a 'finalize disc' option in your recording program
Second issue is this.. even if finalized an older (or even some modern) stand alone players will not recognise a recorded disc made on a computer or even if it can there are different formats DVD+R DVD-R and even DVD-RAM and DVD-RW (the two latter ones are rarely recognised outside a computer)
