Yes. Although at the present time most DVD players only support DVD-R playback, Hitachi’s DVRF7U will play back both DVD-RAM and DVD-R discs. In addition, there is a growing number of affordably priced DVD-RAM players that support both of these formats. These devices make it very simple and convenient to enjoy the robust capabilities of re-writeable DVD-RAM discs.

How to record dvd in ordinary format?


I will presume it plays back fine on your dvd recorder.
In this case, you need to "finalize disc" for it to be playable on other dvd players.

Also, possibly, If you are using a dvd-ram disc, you must make sure that the dvd-player you are trying to use even supports dvd-ram. Most will NOT.

Also, Make sure you are not recording in VR mode. Only some very new dvd-players will support VR mode discs.

PANASONIC DVD RAM DISC RECORDING


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

To my knowledge the only basic requirement to play a recorded disc into another machine (even of the same brand) is that the disc must be finalized. The recorder must be instructed that no further recording is intended and that the recorded disc wold be in use externally (some other standalone player).

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

DVD RAM discs don't need finalised, hence its not an available option.

They will play directly on other players -*** BUT*** ONLY DVD

RAM players.

Don't expect your RAM disc to play on a normal

DVD+/-RW DVD +/-R device. Its not going to happen unless the

device supports DVD RAM also. If it does, it will play your RAM

disc once you've finished recording in your own DVD RAM

recording unit. Pop it out of your unit, straight into the other, and

the jobs done.

Samsung R155 Recording from VHS Issues


The reason why you are having this problem is because you haven't finalized the disc. In able for you to play that Burned DVD that you have you need to Finalized the disc. Finalizing a recordable optical disc means writing the disc's lead-in (the Table of Contents or TOC) and lead-out information (blank data that fills up the unused space at the end of the disc) so that a DVD player will know where the various tracks begin and end. Without the TOC, a conventional DVD player will not be able to read the contents of the disc. Once the disc is finalized, no more information can be written to it. Finalizing takes about two or three minutes. To finalize a DVD-RW/DVD-R: 1. Press the Menu button with the disc stopped. 2. Select Disc Manager and press Enter or the right arrow. 3. Select Disc Finalize and press Enter or the right arrow. You will be asked twice if you are sure that you want to finalize the disc. Select Yes and press Enter. Once the disc is finalized, you cannot delete entries from the record list. After being finalized, the DVD-R/DVD-RW (video mode) operates in the same manner as a DVD-Video. Recorded discs must be finalized in order to play back in non-Samsung DVD players. A DVD-RW disc that has been recorded by DAO (disk-at-once mode) in a PC cannot be unfinalized. A DVD-RW disc that has been recorded in Video Mode on a non-Samsung recorder cannot be unfinalized by a Samsung recorder. A DVD-R disc cannot be unfinalized. Note: Finalization does not apply to DVD-RAM. If you cannot finalize a DVD-R or DVD-RW disc, make sure that Disc Protection is turned off. If you are still having difficulty, you may try calling technical support of SAMSUNG. Note: Do not turn the recorder off while it is finalizing the disc. Data on the disc will be damaged if the finalization process is interrupted.

Can I playback my movies on a DVD-ROM drive?


No, DVD-RAM disc recorded on the DVD Camcorder will not play back on every drive. Some of the new DVD-ROM drives designed to be compliant with the new DVD-RAM book2 standards will playback discs recorded on the DVD Camcorder. Many previous DVD-ROM drives on the market that came out before the DVD-RAM standard was released will not play back discs recorded on the DVD Camcorder. HITACHI manufactures DVD-ROM drives for some PC manufactures as OEM products. HITACHI model GD-7500 DVD-ROM has DVD-RAM read/write compatibility.

When should I use a DVD-R / DVD-RAM / DVD-RW?


Write Once – After finalizing, a DVD-R disc can be played back in approx. 95% of home DVD players and PC DVD drives Capacity – 30-60 minutes (depending on the selected filming mode) of high quality motion video can be stored on a single of a disc. Re-writeable – DVD-RAM allows for recording and re-recording of movies and still photos up to 100,000 times per disc. DVD-RAM is like a removable hard drive. Compatibility for video playback of DVD-RAM in standard home DVD players is fairly low. DVD-RW cannot store true .jpeg digital still photo’s like DVD-RAM, however it is re-writable and has 80% compatibility with home DVD players.
