I have placed the recorded dvd in tht Colby and pressed the edit button but only the chapters menu is displayed. Can you help me with the correct steps. Mike

I turned off the Colby recorder then turned it back on and inserted the DVD and chose the edit button on the remote controller. The correct menu with the close and finalize choice became available.

Allthough The DVD's I have were made on the DRVCR900, they now cannot be played on it, I'm thinking that the finishing process never took place in order to code it to play on all devices, is there...


Hi,
Finishing / finalizing DVD should be on the DVD recorder that you recorded previously..
Put it back in..
go to MENU
and look for FINALIZE title under RECORDING menu..
and select it OK ,let it finalize..then you can play it in any DVD player..
one note ..do you know that this recorder can only record to DVD-R
DVD-RW discs...as Write support..not the ones +R/RW

Hope this helps!..otherwise let me know..
Take care and please

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.

I burn dvd -r and dvd+r and it will not play on it


It is possible that the disks are not finalized. You may need to configure it to auto finalize, which is off by default. It would be impossible to have more than one title on a disk if you always auto finalized. Check your manual, and finalize your disks. Many times marginal disks will play OK in the unit they were recorded on, but not so well in other players. The media (disks) could be the problem as well. On a side note, the DR410 will NOT burn DL (dual layer) disks. I hope this helps and good luck.

Won't play on any other dvd


You have to use your friend's DVD recorder to finalize the disc. Once the DVD is finalized, it will play in other DVD players.
On your friend's DVD recorder, pop the disc in, and use his remote to go to Setup --> Disc Edit --> Finalize --> OK
Voila!

Recorded dvd's won't play on other dvd players Toshiba d-r410


You can play these recordings without finalizing them in the D-R410, but if you want them to play
in other DVD players, they need to be finalized. See pages 28 to 32 in manual. If you want to
finalize the disks you've already made, follow the directions on page 32.

push the stop button it is the button with the square on it. the screen will go blank or it may let you watch whatever tv channel you are on if you have your tv ran through the recorder, push the setup buton a new screen will come up, with the arrow down button scroll down and highlight disc edit, press ok another screen will come up, with the arrow down button scroll down and highlight "finalize", press "ok" it is the button in the middle of the arrow keys
scroll up and highlight "yes" press "ok" the recorder will finalize the disc and it can be watched on any DVD player, just remember when you finalize a disc you cannot add anything else to the disc.
