That's because u r in HDD mode. Change drive select to "dvd" , then "functions" will show: "disc setting" to include, disc name, pick menu, select first play, and Finalize.

My disks are DVD-RW and want tp use them over gain and don't know how. Also when do I finalise then and what for


For RW discs, you need to reformat them to reuse them. For your laptop, you should see a format option if you right click on the DVD icon when you have the File Explorer open to Computer (My Computer). (This assumes that the computer has a DVD writer.)

Finalizing the disc enables the contents of the disc to be read on other DVD players. (This isn't always an issue. For example, a disc burned with WinXP should be readable for a computer with Windows 7 without finalizing. However, if the disc was burned by a DVD player, the contents will not be accessible on any other units without being finalized.)

If the disc has been finalized, you need to take another step before reformatting the RW disc. Put the disc in the unit that initially finalized it. Then look for an Unfinalize option. Then format the disc again. (I've never used this feature on my computer. It's easily accessed on my DVD recorder in the same section of the submenu as finalizing the disc.)

I hope this helps.

After burning my DVD-R, I can not play it on my computor or any other DVD player. What am I doing wrong?


Did you finalize the disc? How you do this will depend on whether you are using your computer or a standalone DVR. On XP, I had to tell my burning software to finalize the disc after burning. On Windows 7, I find it will finalize the disc on eject (until I changed that setting). Finalizing the disc is an option under right clicking when I have a disc in the drive.

On a standalone DVR, you should find an option to finalize the disc in the menus that let you write a title to the disc.

Without finalization, other dvd players will not be able to read the disc. You also need to make sure that the disc is compatible with each player (+/- R is not universal).

I hope this helps.

Limited viewing


It sounds like the recorder will only record the dvd+ format, which does NOT need finalizing to play in other machines. ( you can record a dvd- , play it back on the machine you recorded it on, but need to finalize it to play on other machines)
The other units may only accept dvd-.(dvd- being the same format as you would buy or rent a film on)
One option, record the dvd on a dvd+rw (if possible) then copy to a dvd-r using your computer. The average use of a dvd+ is 1000 recordings.
There are many free disc burning suites available to download. Just google "free disc burning software" and take your pick.
I use 1 called "magix goya base" for copying disc to disc and "NTI" for burning to HDD and then to disc, if you only have use of 1 drive.

I am not able to format a blank DVD prior to dubbing from video(both +R and -R). Am I to assume if the "format disk" option in the menu is grayed out that the machine is telling me the disk does not need...


vfazzi - You shouldn't have to format a DVD - it should do that automatically when you put a blank one in, or when you start the recording by pressing REC. After the recording is done, you will need to finalize to play it in another player, and the option should then be available (It would "know" not to let you finalize a blank disc).

Finalizing


-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.

Can't Finalize a disk on Panasonic DMR-EH60 DVD Recorder


It sounds like you haven't selected DVD first. When dubbing to DVD, you need to do this in HDD mode. When finalizing, you need to be in DVD mode for the finalizing options to come up.
