    You can also download the manual for this (and almost any other unit) - just google Toshiba D-R400 manual.

How to finalize a dvd


Which specific model of DVD recorder do you have? You need to finalize the disc on the unit that wrote the files/movie to disc. For the Toshiba DR570KU, press Setup on the remote. Then enter the DVD menu (use the up/down arrows to navigate and then press Enter). Select Finalize and then press Enter. Highlight Yes when asked to confirm the finalization step and then press Enter again. Wait for the recorder to finish the process (it will take several minutes). Note: you need to leave some space on the disc for the finalization data to be added to it.

You can also set the unit to auto-finalize when the disc is full or a timed recording ends. For the second item, you will not be able to add content to the disc if a short program was recorded unless you use a rewritable DVD. (Then you would will need to unfinalize the disc. See the manual.) This is accessed from the General Settings menu from the Setup button. Go to Recordings and then select the Auto Finalize setting. Select when you want the disc to finalize and then turn ON the feature. Press Setup to exit the menu.

The manual for the DR570 is available under the User's Guide tab here: http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=SB&os=&category=&moid=2805105&rpn=undefined&modelFilter=DR570KU&selCategory=2797338&selFamily=2797342 . Toshiba has the manuals to most of their products here: http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/home.jsp .

Please add a comment with the specifics of your recorder for more information. I hope this helps.

Tried to record on a DVD-R disc, but unit said that the disc was full. I then tried to finalize the disc, but the unit got stuck in the finalization process. I unplugged/replugged the unit to make it...


The most likely reason the unit got 'stuck during finalisation' is probably because there was insufficent space left on the disc for it to write the respective lead-out/menu data (or perhaps there was a bad disc sector) - disc full? Because you unplugged the unit from power point before it had finished, the disc is possibly corrupted now. Throw that disc out.

The manual clearly warns: Do not disconnect the AC power supply cord while finalising. This
can render the disc unusable.

In other words, you have lost that particular recording and you are wasting your time with that disc.

There is nothing in the manual to suggest the length of time required for DVD-R recovery - there is a recovery process for the whole unit (such as after a power cut while recording a timer program for example) but not for discs. I may be wrong here...

However, the upshot is you have lost a disc, not a recorder. Another drink coaster for your living room.

How to finalise dvd recording


Press the menu button on your remote - go to finalize disc - follow instructions. Note that VR discs can be played with many if not most DVD-players without finalizing. In fact I have had problems finalizing and unfinalizing discs back and forth. If the disc manager displays only unfinalize disc, the disc is already finalized.

Says blank DVD-RW is not formatted, then formats -- then error


I have same TOSHIBA D-VR4XSU VCR/DVD RECORDER. According to the
manual, you (COULD) can use for recording: DVD-RAM, DVD-RW and DVD-R (see page 50). WRONG!!! I bought all 3 types of discs, but after few
weeks I got same experience you got now. Just type DVD-R works. The other
types were - wasted money and a lot of time trying to finalize the disc. I had to
throw all into the garbage. Try DVD-R and you should?? be O.K.

I have toshiba dvd recorder,the problem is the recorded dvd cannot play with other player. Do I have to return this recorder as it just a week away since i buy it


Hi there,
Make sure you Finalize the disc when you are done recording, otherwise it won't be read on other players or computers. To do this you go to Setup> Disc and choose Finalize. It takes a few minutes per disc, don't turn off the player while it it finalizing. In the same Setup menu you can choose an option to autofinalize the disc when you are done recording, so you do not have to to it manually each time.

Problems finalizing discs


Check to see if you are using 16x media.  If you are you need to get a firmware upgrade from Toshiba.  Contact their support number listed inside of the manual.  They will ship you a dvd to insert into the unit.
