Most stand-alone DVD recorders finalize the DVD before ejecting it. Are you sure it not already finalized?

I cannot play burned dvd's from this system in other dvd players becahse I cannot finalize the dvd. How do I finalize?


The recording may have used all the media on the disk because you let it run until it was full.
Now, there is no room to finalize the disk.

Play this back on the machine where it was recorded while recording it to another DVD recorder..
This time, BE THERE to stop the recording.
Set the recorder to a speed that leaves at least 10 minutes extra space for finalization.

I used ez record to copy a vhs tape to a DVD-R disk. at the end of the tape I pushed the open/close button but the disk did not finalize. We have had the unit for several years but I have never been able...


If you are using Nero, just put in your unfinalised dvd.
open nero and select the "Burn" tab from the options.
Now click on the "Finalise DVD" checkbox.
Now click on Burn, and it will finalise the dvd.
There is a corresponding Tab on most recording programs.
You really need to get another, better, burner than EZ. I nearly always use UltraISO, it has a built in burner, based on Nero, and just works. Another one is CopytoDVD... it is great.
Also I find it is better to NOT use those horrid re-recordable discs.

After burning my DVD-R, I can not play it on my computor or any other DVD player. What am I doing wrong?


Did you finalize the disc? How you do this will depend on whether you are using your computer or a standalone DVR. On XP, I had to tell my burning software to finalize the disc after burning. On Windows 7, I find it will finalize the disc on eject (until I changed that setting). Finalizing the disc is an option under right clicking when I have a disc in the drive.

On a standalone DVR, you should find an option to finalize the disc in the menus that let you write a title to the disc.

Without finalization, other dvd players will not be able to read the disc. You also need to make sure that the disc is compatible with each player (+/- R is not universal).

I hope this helps.

HOW DO YOU BURN A DVD ON A SONY DVD RECORDER RDR


Make sure your Sony input signal is on L1 or L3 (the inputs in back of recorder) or on L2 which is for inputs for cameras(located in front).Once you get a signal, you're where you need to be. Choose your recording mode for recording speed (pull down the flap on the remote control for this button and also the input button).
Choose from between1 hour and six hours. To archive really important stuff, stick with the first 3 speeds. TV recording can be on 3, 4 or 6 hour mode.
Push the record/pause button once. This will put the recorder into the record/pause mode and then it awaits you pushing it again to start recording immediately. Just pushing record will force the machine into a 3 to five second delay before actually recording anything so you might mess up and miss the first few seconds of your input. Suggest you use a dvr-rw or dvd+rw to practice on.

When your recording is done, just push the pause again. It stops recording but allows you to add more on to the first recording without starting a new chapter if you want. Just continue to release the pause button to continue.
If you are satisfied that you are finished, then push the pause button to stop recording. Wait for the info to be written(flashing message on screen). When it stops, you may play the dvd.
Notice- since the dvd has not been FINALIZED, you may only play it back on this unit without finalizing. It will not play on other dvd players unless you finalize it first.
To finalize, look on remote for the TOOL button. Press it once. Now push DISC INFO once. Use arrow keys and enter button on remote for the following. Scroll down to FINALIZE and press enter.
Use arrow keys to scroll to OK. push the ENTER button. Finalizing should take between 30 seconds and 2 minutes.

Warning- if titles or chapters are to typed in, it must be done BEFORE finalizing. Finalizing afterwards cannot be done.
Erasing can be done in part or all if using an RW+ or RW- disc

Just purchased - no manual - how do you finalize DVDs so they will play on other DVD players?


Using your remote, hit the function button. Scroll down to setup and right to disc setting. Enter on disc setting. Next screen will show 3 settings. Scroll down to finalize and hit enter. It will ask if you're sure you want to finalize. Enter yes. Remember; once you enter yes, there is no going back.

I had the same problem the manual don't tell you in detail have to finalize the disc . I had to go to this web-site to find out how . What's the purpose of the manual? Very un-happy Canon Customer


Hi, thanks for coming to FixYa.

Here is how to finalize a disk in your camcorder.
1) Plug in the power adapter, and put in the disk you want to finalize.
2) Press the function button. If your disk was recorded in VR mode, then go to step 3. If not, go to step 4.
3) Scroll right to get to menu.
4) Scroll down to get to Disk Functions.
5) Scroll down again to get to Finalize.
6) Scroll down again to Yes.
7) Press the function button.
8) Wait until it's done, then you can play your disk in a DVD player.

Remember, (very important). Don't touch or bump it while it's finalizing a disk. If you disturb it, you can mess up your disk.
Hope that helps you. Don't forget to rate my solution, and enjoy your videos.

Can i record from tv to dvd


yes
make sure the cables are connected correctly, the manual will show that.
If the mwr20v6 has a tuner you must have the channel on the dvd set to the program, if it has no tuner, you must have your tv set to the correct channel.
