Connect your videocamera to AC and it will allow you to finalize discs.

I have a Magnavox ZC320MW8 DVD recorder. I am having a devil of a time gettng it to finalize DVDs. What do I need to do?


This I believe will come down to software. The DVDs are all copy protected but by no means is it high security. I would check into some firmware update or additional software to download on to the recorder to open and finalize.

My dvd player would't play any dvd's. It used to play any regions, but now i often/always get the message "cannot play" Sometimes the movie start up normal, but often the picture freeze...


The dvd player has reached the end of it's service life, over a period of time the laser pickup becomes weaker until it can no longer read the disc. One option is to purchase a disc cleaning kit and follow the instructions to possibly give new life to the unit, if that fails it is far cheaper to replace the item than have it repaired.

I just bougth a marantz cdr 300 cd recorder,everything seems to be working fine, but I'm not able to listen what I just recordered on any other cd player.Marantz cd 72 mr 2020.Thanks


Hi,
It sounds like you haven't followed the last step to the burning procedure. All you need to do once you've completed burning your disc is to Finalize the disc. Read below why you need to finalize as well as the steps to follow in order to finalize the disc.
Hope this helps ;)
How to Finalize Finalizing is writing the TOC (table of contents) on a disc so a CD player can recognize the number of tracks, the total time for each track, and their location on the disc. A recorded disc must be finalized to playback on a standard CD player. Once finalized a CD-R disc can be played on CD players that support CD-R playback. CD-RW discs can only be played on CD players that support CD-RW playback. Consult your CD player owner's manual to confirm supported formats. Finalizing is necessary to: • be able to play a recorded CD-R or CD-RW disc on a CD player • prevent further recording on a disc • avoid erasing tracks on a CD-RW disc • record text information onto a disc you record Notes: • A finalized CD-R disc can never be recorded onto again. • A finalized CD-RW disc can be unfinalized for more recording. • The CDR300 can play back unfinalized CD-R or CD-RW discs. • SYNC REC+FINAL mode automatically finalizes.
Here are the steps in order to Finalize your disk
1 Push Stop. The display shows the number of tracks and their total playing time. 2 Push FINALIZE. FINALIZE is displayed for about 3 seconds.

Y cd player model CD 4000 serial No HM-23174204 will not play CDs that I have burnt on my pc using Nero. But will play pre-recorded ones. Can you help me please


Have you looked at the manual?

If NERO didn't create and finalize the disc in CDA format it might not play on a normal CD audio player. Some also require the disc to have been created in a single session.

"CD 4000" is not unique. The serial number is a useless piece of data. Google it.

Name the MAKE and model first, then we'll look for the manual. Then (maybe) find a solution. You might find it at the manufacturer's support site or these guys...

Im downloading songs on my cd , they work good when i play them on the computer,, but i want the songs for my car and my dvd in my car isnt taking it... what can i do ,,, change the format is what...


assuming your car dvd can first of all handle copied discs.. can it read mp3 files? (which is what you likely have the songs as) if the player can read copied discs but not mp3 files then you need to 'burn' the mp3's after converting them to wav files (must be at least 44.000 quality to be recognised as music tracks) the good news is most disc authoring programs will do this conversion for you IMPORTANT dont forget to finalize or 'close' the disc after recording it or it wont work
