Well, I will ask no indulgence apart from Benimur here.
Experts should answer questions, not keep asking to get a placeholder in the thread.

Regarding the problem. Some reader can develope problems in readin/writing +R or -R dvd, even if they are supposed to support both.
The difference in this two format is error correction method. Many dvd work well only with dvd-R , other with DVD+R.
This is normally due to problem caused by electric noise in the laser pickup and wobbles introduced by the electric motor spinning the disc. The +R and -R technology had been developed to fix this problems.
+R have a far more efficient error correction, but -R are sometimes easier to read/write for some device, as they use an empty space between two tracks.
I won't enter in detail on burning +r,-r technologies here, just try using good brand -R dvds if you can, cheap DVD can also create troubles.

Hi gmcgoo21,

with the indulgence of issy2 and otacon...

If I understand your concern right, you have:
1. a JVC DVD Recorder/Player connected to your TV on AV3;
2. a Philips DVDR3320V DVD/VCR Recorder/Player connected to your TV on AV2; and
3. as issy2 has posted, your DVDR3320V is your main concern since recorded disc will only be read initially but not playable and will freeze thereafter. You have tried full hard reset by disconnecting the Philips from the mains for a couple of hours to try and revert it back to factory defaults. Alternately, you can try (with no disc inside but the Philips powered on) goto General Settings, Factory Set Option, Arrow Right to select Set, OK, Yes, OK. This is better explained in page 18 of the User's Manual.

Additionally, some users have reported a more stable performance of this DVD Recorder/VCR version of Philips with a firmware update

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Finalizing a DVD-R blank disc

Jvc dvd/vcr player records from vcr to dvd but only plays back the dvd on the jvc DR-MV79 won't play on any other dvd players


Have you finalized the DVD in question? Unfinalized discs usually won't play in other machines. Is the DVD type compatible with the other dvd players? (Some may not handle DVD+R for example; it is an acceptable disc for the jvc DR-MV79.) Try a different brand and type of DVD. Check your other players supported discs.

To Finalize the disc, Menu > Setup > Disc Setting > Finalize (if needed set Disc Protection to Off).

I hope this helps.

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.

Finalizing


Use a name-brand DVD, such as HP, Verbatim, etc. and make sure it is a DVD+R or DVD-RW/-R disk only.
It is most likely that the DVD you are using is not compatible.
The disk is still usable, but you can only read it on that player.

I recorded a dvd and it will not play in any other player.


You must finalize the DVD after recording it. If you post the model of the JVC device, I may be able to find out how to do this for you.

I am recording fron VHS to DVD. When I am finished and push the stop button, How can I tell how much space is on the DVD to record something else and how do I finish the dik so it can't be recordered over


JVC DVD Recorder – Finalizing and disc space
First, you will need to know if the program was recorded in XP mode, SP mode, LP mode, or EP mode. To find out how much room there is left, put the dvd in the tray and press the Disc Menu/List button on the JVC remote. This will display the title and how long it is - write that number down. It will also say either "XP,SP, LP, or EP" - write down that mode. In XP mode, a DVD will hold 1 hr and 20 mins worth of prgramming - MAXIMUM. SP mode = 2 hours. LP mode = 4 hours. EP = 6 hours. So, if your program is one hour, and you recorded in LP mode, you have 4 - 1 = 3 hours of space left for recording on that disc.

If you finalize a disc, you will no longer be able to add more programs to that disc, unless the disc is a + or - RW disc. Also note that finalization requires some disc space, so if you recorded a program that is exactly 1hr and 20 mins long, and you recorded it in XP mode, then the disc will probably not finalize correctly.

That being said, the finalization directions are on p. 23 of your manaul: Title --> Finalize --> => --> find finalize --> Enter --> OK --> Enter

Now it will play on other players.

My JVC DR-MV7 will play most DVDs and even record, but recently, it stopped being able to finalize. After I get the message saying "finalization has failed," I can't even play the DVD anymore - thus losing...


My JVC DR-MV7 will not accept any disc for playback. I insert a movie disc and it consistently rejects them. After about 15 to 20 attempts, sometimes it will stay and begin reading the disc. It also sounds like some internal components are encountering some resistance (moving parts inside?). Any ideas?
