-R and +R auto-finalize, only +RW and -RW require manual finalization - if the option is no longer available, it is because the discs are already considered finalized by the player. If the disc edit option is greyed out, and you cannot play the discs in another player, then the recorder will need to be replaced b/c it is consistently producing bad recordings. Try unplugging and replugging the recorder once just to be sure it isn't a temporary problem.

I got a new machine, when I transfer from VHS to DVD-R it records, but will only play on the machine I recorded on, it doesn't load on other DVD players, why is that?


You need to FINALIZE the DVD-R you recorded in that unit for it to be playable on other DVD players. This function should be part of the on-screen menu for your unit. (in Panasonic DVD recorders, it's under DVD MANAGEMENT in the FUNCTIONS menu).

If the disc you recorded is already loaded, but stopped, press SETUP on your remote - an on screen menu should appear.

Using the UP/DOWN arrow keys, select DVD MENU and press ENTER. Use the UP/DOWN arrow keys again to select FINALIZE and press ENTER.

A message box will popup 'Finalize disc?' use the UP/DOWN arrow keys to select YES then press ENTER. Finalizing should start and may take a while to complete.

Once complete, the disc is now playable on other DVD players. (from page 32 of the owners manual with the heading 'PLAYING THE DISCS IN OTHER DVD PLAYERS')

Can not get dvd's I have copied play on my PC or Blu Ray player


Did you finalize the discs on the unit that converted and burned them? That can often be a critical step before moving the disc to another player. (Depending on the unit, you can find the command buried in the Settings or Disc Settings menu. If you add a comment with the machine used to duplicate the VHS tape to DVD, I may know where the command is on your unit.)

If you did finalize the discs, check the media for scratches and make sure that the DVD is compatible with the other players. (Some will have issues with DVD +R and others will have issues with DVD -R discs.)

I hope this helps.

I have Toshiba D-VR660KU, I've copied several VHS


you need to finalize the disc or "make compatable" or "close session". basically the disc needs to be finished off to be able to play on any dvd player. dvd-r will normally play on any player as it is the standard format dvd discs. dvd+r/rw discs do not need to be finalized, but don't play on all machines.

Finalizing DVD


If the size of the vhs recording was in 2hr mode, and the size of the recording itself is about 2 hrs, you may not have enough space to finalize. I would use your PC to finalize the disc - I use Dr. Divx, but you can find many finalizing programs out there.

I have made a home made DVD that I have copied from a VHS, but I don't know how to finalize it to be able to play on other DVD players in my house. How can I finalize it? I'm using the D-VR600KU


you have to press DVD Menu. When you get a blue screen, press "Setup." Then go down until you reach "Disc." The next menu you see has "finalize" halfway down the menu. My problem is after I finalize, all my editing is gone. let me know if you figure that out.

How to finalize


i have spent 2 months looking for this answer myself... and at last success! i downloaded the user manual from funai(they made this model) available here: http://www.funai-corp.com/6pdf/om/MWR10D6.pdf on page 38 it instructs you to press setup on your remote, from the drop down menu you need to select disc edit and then select finalize. this aggravated me at first because nothing happens when i hit the setup button, i powered off the unit and hit setup before the disc loaded. this step is not mentioned but is necesary. you cannot finalize a disc after it has loaded to the title menu.
