    having he same problem with the replaying recorded dvds on other players. I have finalized with no effect. I have tried r+, r-. rw and several different brands with no effect. I have tried in at least 6 different players. The tech recommended changing to 8x speed rather than the somewhat norm of 16x which is what I have in abundance in both r+ and r-. Sure would like to figure out a way to run my recorded dvds on my bedroom player if nothing else. Can you help?

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.

Try finalizing the disc before playing it in another machine.

THis is done from the top menu on the DVD recorder.

Look up finalizing in your manual for specific details.

Anything I have recorded onto DVD from TV wont play on any other machines. It will only play on this machine I recorded on. It is the same make and model mentioned here.


If you're not using DVD+RW blanks (VERBATIM work fine), then try them. DVD-RW blanks will not play on any machine but the one that recorded the disk (according to the manual.)

I can record dvd on player but cant play back on anything but tv it is recorded on


The TV has nothing to do with it. The medium you use to record with does though as well as the DVD player you use to play the recorded DVD with. Some players will not play DVDR or DVD-RW discs. Check your manual.

Dvds recorded on video to dvd recorder wont play elsewhere


Mosr DVD recorders have a "compatible" setting or require you to "finalise" the disc. Check that is being done.

It's also worth checking that the laptop will play other DVDs sometimes you need a codec.

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.
