Question about DVD & Blu-Ray Players

1 Answer

I am trying to find out a way to finalize a DVD recording on my recorder. I purchased it 2 months ago and when you go into the menu to finalize the recording it dims and acts like it does but the DVD will not play on anyother player. I also would like to know about getting another remote for my recorder due to my son dropping mine in water. Thank you Katherine rivers e-mail katie_rivers@hotmail.com

LG DVD recorder RH735T. Page 10 of the manual says to finalize a disc before you can play it on a different unit. But when I record something on a disc, the settings menu will not allow me to finalize


On my Toshiba DVD burners, you need to first open the DVD tray, and while it is open hit the regular menu, then DVD menu, select "FORMAT" from the DVD drop down menu, then "FORMAT MODE", which leads you to the 2 CRITICAL Choices :
1) Video Mode - Which has the DVD recording in "DVD Compatibility Mode" so it is "Compatible" with most other DVD Players
OR...
2) VR Mode- Which says "Editing Possibility mode" (Note you need a "+R DVD "to be able to do editing, at least on my machines.
Obviously you'll close the DVD tray to be ready to record
Finish the DVD, @ "DVD" Menu, & Finalize, or what you need with "VR"

Need to know how to finalize recorded disc so that it can be played in regular dvd player


You can record and finalize DVD+Rs one time. After you fill a DVD+R or

complete all the recordings you want on a single DVD+R, finalize it.

Otherwise, the DVD+R will play only on this Recorder.To play the Disc on

other DVD Players, you must finalize it first.

Once you finalize a DVD+R, you cannot record on it anymore or make

editing changes.Therefore, make sure the Disc is as you want it before you

finalize it.

1



Press SYSTEM MENU. Press

; to select in the top left

corner of the menu bar at the top of the TV screen.

2



Press CH-

9 repeatedly to select in the second screen,

then press



:.

3



Press CH-

9 repeatedly to select Finalize disc. Finalize disc

appears in the menu only when an unfinalized DVD+R is in the

Recorder.

4



Press OK.

"Finalizing" will appear in the menu.The process may

take a few minutes.


When finalization is complete, the Index

picture screen will reappear.

You cannot unfinalize a DVD+R, and you cannot record or

edit the DVD+R after you finalize it.

A DVD+R will play on other DVD Players only after the
Disc is finalized.

CAN RECORD FROM VCR TO DVD+R, CAN PLAY DVD ON SAME, BUT CANNOT PLAY ON OTHER DISC PLAYERS. I THINK THAT THIS IS BECAUSE I AM NOT FINALIZING CORRECTLY. WHEN AND HOW DO I FINALIZE A NEWLY RECORDED DISC?...


Usually you finalize the disc after loading it with all the desired content (leaving a bit of space for the finalization). So if you are recording a TV show, depending on the setting (SP, LP, XP), you might finalize the disc after recording 4 1/2 shows. The How may vary by model but on my DVD recorder, I find the finalize command in the same menu area as adding a title and initializing a DVD-RW disc. So I press Setup to enter the OSD menu, then go down to Disc (looks like an optical disc) then right arrow to enter the sub menu. Then press down to Disc Finalize and the right arrow again and press enter. Select OK and Enter again. (RW discs can be unfinalized to add more content.) Then wait until the process is done.

I hope this helps.

I'm trying to copy old family videos from VCR to DVD. I'm using the correct disc type (DVD-R) and there's no copy protection. I've tried both Sony and HP discs. Each time, it seems to be working but...


First, try to refinalize the disc if it failed the first time by going into the edit menu. Sometimes finalization just fails the first time.

If you are recording on 2-hr mode, and the length of your recording is an 1hr 50 min or more, there will not be enough space left on the disc to finalize. Going forward, your best solution would be to record in 3- or 4-hour mode for every 2 hrs worth of recording (6-hour mode for 3-5 hours of recording, etc.). Just to quickly decipher recording modes: 2-hr mode (sometimes called SP Mode, depending on DVD player) will record about 2 hours worth of material on a standard blank DVD (but some extra space would be required for finalization); 4-hour mode would record 4 hours worth of material on a standard DVD; 6-hour mode would record 6 hours, etc.

As far as salvaging the recordings you have already made - load the burned, yet unfinalized DVD's into your computer. Copy the files onto the desktop or some easy-to-find location on your computer. Then use a program, free or otherwise (I personally reccomend Nero or Roxio), to re-burn the discs. The newer version of Nero automatically finalizes the disc, but some software requires you to select an option that allows you to "close disc" or "finalize" the disc. (In computer lingo, "closing" means the same thing as "finalizing").

Good luck!

Sounds like you recorded from a camcorder attached to AV2 (front of DVD player). Press the STOP button, then open the menu and finalize the disk.
