Question about Pioneer DVR-520H DVD Recorder

Forgot to Finalize Disk

Hi there -- I just burned a few DVDs using the DVR-520H, and stupidly forgot to finalize the disks.  Is there anyway to use a laptop / software to finalize the disks, or do I have to use the DVR?  (I just left on a business trip for a couple of months, so I will be without the DVR for awhile, which is why I'm asking.)

    I have the same problem with my Pioneer DVD Recorder cannot finalise don`t matter what I do. It`s never finalised ever since I bought it new. I have finalised dvd before recording also finalised a new dvd after recording. The pioneer in my opinion is a waste of time. The experts say "I could be using the wrong DVDs or the machine wants looking at". Not much help.

How to finalize a disk on a e machine


It's not the emachine, it's windows or the software you use for burning.
There should be a setting, there usually is on any burning software to finalize, most do it auto when it's not a RW disk.

DVD-R will not play


You have to finalize or go to edit and then finalize first before taking out. Once done you will have to use new disc.

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.

Can not finalize disk


I have had loads of people ask me this question in just 2 weeks, so it often does happen okay?
Anyway you should not have to do a finalize on the disk, because when you stop filming, the camera reads it's end bit to the DVD auto, then after a few seconds you should be able to open the camera door.

Finalizing the disk


Finalizing a disc is a software issue. When you start to burn a disc there's a check box that will say something like "Finalize Disc" or "Allow no further recording to this disc". Depends on the software. Personally, I use Nero.

Hope that helps...

Finalizing a dvd


Try this. In your SETUP options, ensure that AUTO FINALIZE and FINALIZE AT END OF TIMER are turned OFF.

Insert DVD. Press SETUP button. Be patient. Once DVD has loaded the DISK FINALIZE option will be available. You can then FINALIZE.

I found it much cheaper to get DVD-R from Radio Shack (about $5 for 25) for VHS movies that I know I want to keep. They do record up to 6 hours, even though the packaging is unclear on this point.
