some dvd recorders only record to be play on their own machine... and the ones that can be play on other machines (that player must be updated as in new model) i had to buy new machine to play my toshiba dvds this also works out you borrow dvd now and record it also
I have a magnavox dvd recorder/vcr combo (ZV427MG9A) connected to my Sharp hdtv via hdmi cord, Can anyone tell me simple setup steps to make it record and play on either sides. I have read instruction book over and over and it is still not recording to disc or tapes. I also have Charter Cable connected. Can you tell me what do i need to do to make it work. H-E-L-P!!!!
yes when you have finished the recording and preferably when the disc is full the disc must be finalised to be compatible with other players but be aware if you finalise a disc you cannot record on it anymore
You have to use your friend's DVD recorder to finalize the disc. Once the DVD is finalized, it will play in other DVD players.
On your friend's DVD recorder, pop the disc in, and use his remote to go to Setup --> Disc Edit --> Finalize --> OK
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.
