Once you record whatever you want, go to HOME. Select the START option on the Setup Menu. Press the up - down button to select the disc a the bottom.
Press the right button to select [ Finalize ] .
Select [Finalize ] then press ENTER.
Select [ OK ] then press ENTER.

I have only just had the same problem just resently and found this info in the Easy set-up guide that came with the dvd when I bought it. It is the glossy paper not the actual guide haha. I couldn't find out how in the guide book if that was the same problem you were having. Hope that helps you

I burn the DVD fine and can play it back. But when i put the DVD into another dvd player or my laptop it says the disk is empty?

You MUST finalize the disc or close the session after you are done burning a disc. If you do not do this the disc can become unreconizable to players.

Video copied to disk but cannot view on PC or other DVD players.

This is the unfortunate thing with copying DVD's. Unfortunately when a DVD is copied only certail players will play it back. I can burn a disk on my laptop and it will play fine in the laptop and on my Sony DVD player, but my Samsung will not read it. This is why when you burn DVD's it's important to find a brand that is read by numerous DVD players. Try using the Sony disks.

Hope this helps.
