Question about JVC SR-MV40 DVD Recorder/VCR
What causes a disk not to finalize after recording? I am a video court reporter and record depositions directly to disk and on more than one occassion the disk fails to finalize.
Is this machine only capable of lasting about 9 months and recording about 300 disks. What is the problem and how can it be corrected so it doesn't happen in the future?
Failing to Finalize and thus making the DVD 'playable' on other DVD Players is most often caused by the media (your blank disk), not the Recorder. Trying another disk, from the same 'stack' or manufacturer will often have the same result. But, it is a 'hit and miss' situation. As you have the recording on the hard drive it can be worth your while connecting another basic DVD Recorder to input the material to a disk in that recorder. Sounds silly perhaps, but I have actually done this - and had the disk finalized in the second unit.
