Disc Finalize stuck at 99%

Brand new unit, I'm trying to copy old VHS tapes to DVD. When the recording finishes and I try to finalize the DVD, the disc ejects when "FInalize" hits ~53%. It remains on the screen until I put the disc back in and then the "Disc Finalize" slowly makes it to 99% where it freezes for good and remains on the screen. The DVD's do play on my computer OK, but I can't get the "Disc Finalize 99%" message off the screen unless I put in a blank DVD and record a bit of TV and then finalize that DVD. The "Disc Finalize 99%" remains on the screen no matter whether I'm watching TV, DVD, or VHS tape. Only way I found to get it off was to put in another blank DVD, record a little TV, and "Finalize" that disc. Help!

Thank you for the help. I decided to return the unit - totally unreliable. Walmart wasn't stocking this product 2 days after I bought it - I think they had so many complaints they probably returned them all to the wholesaler.

Why won't the Sony controls let me click onto finalize using a Sony TV w/recoder to transfer VHS to DVD?


Is the VHS tape you are trying to record a commercial VHS tape (movie)? If so, it may have copy protection on it. The recorder is probably programmed to prevent you from making and using DVDs of commercial copy-protected VHS tapes.

How do I finalize my disk once I have finished recording from VHS tape. How do I get the finalize to light up on menu on screen?


If they are +RW discs they cant be finalized and can only be played on +RW compatible players. Use +R, -R or -RW if you need a wider compatibility (DVD-VIDEO). Finalizing is quite easy following directions in the manual.

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.

Centrios 1611304 Can no longer finilizing DVD !!!


Before you attempt to finalize, press the stop button 3 times. This will stop the disc from spinning in the tray. Then attempt to finalize from the menu. Sometimes this will not work, depending on your chosen brand of media. Some media just won't finalize (even if they are from the same package of discs that do finalize properly). I don't know why this recorder is so fussy about the media - sorry!
