Turn off the machine and turn it back on again, before the dvd loads hit the setup button on the remote, you will see a list of possible choice and edit will be one of them, wait until it lights up like the rest, that will mean that your disc is loaded, finalize is one of the choice under edit.

How do I finalize my disk once I have finished recording from VHS tape. How do I get the finalize to light up on menu on screen?


If they are +RW discs they cant be finalized and can only be played on +RW compatible players. Use +R, -R or -RW if you need a wider compatibility (DVD-VIDEO). Finalizing is quite easy following directions in the manual.

Want to copy vhs to dvd.


I convert VHS to DVD using a Toshiba DVD Recorder that I purchased from Costco a few years back. I plug the VCR into the DVD recorder using RCA jacks, press PLAY on the VCR and REC on the DVD recorder and let it sit and record. I can record up to 8 hours of video onto one DVD at low quality. After this, I finalize the DVD so it can be read on other DVD players.

Most DVD recorders have a menu selection to finalize the disc, this is what will allow it to play in other devices.

I have a Magnavox ZV427MG9 DVD recorder. I follow instructions on how to finalize recorded DVD but it doesn't work. I set up to finalize at the beginning and it won't work. When I try to finalize at the...


what you do after you label the recording you play the dvd selecting the image and then play then stop it then select setup.
The instruction book doesn't follow through properly and I lost a dvd that way before I realized what it was after trying on a test DVD different things to get back to the setup screen that was supposed to have the finalize on it.
It's also a 1/4 inch to wide to fit on my shelf so it sits on top and blocks the remote sensor on the tv and makes tv control a bit difficult. The copies if you get them right at the fastest speed are very good though.
Many VCR's are protected from copy. Some start with that right away disabling the copy process others wait till thee film is half recorded. I understand some makes don't respect the copy proofing on tapes. I am not so experienced to say for sure that is so.

I have been copying my kids vhs videos onto cds and they don't pl


You don't necessarily need a code if the DVD player screen is not asking for one. The problem could be that the discs are not finalized - use the same DVD recorder or computer burning software that you used to record the DVD's to finalize the discs. Some programs/players use the word "closing" or "close disc" instead of the word "finalize." If you used the Magnavox to record the DVD's, go into the Settings menu of the Magnavox, select "Disc Edit," and then "Finalize." If the DVD player screen is specifically asking for a code, the user manual for the Magnavox has the universal code in it - it is usually 7-1-1 or 0-7-1-1 for Magnavox. If you have lost the user manual, it is available from either the Magnavox or Funai website, depending on your exact model.

DVD does not play on other players or computer


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Your description indicates that the last step in the DVD recording has not been performed on these discs that were recorded on the Magnavox. This would be "finalize" or instruct the Magnavox that no other files would be written/recorded on the current disc. Thereafter, the Magnavox would complete the DVD disc making it playable in any other player. Normally, finalization would take a bit of time to complete.

Pls post back how things turned up. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
