Nov. of 2006, I returned my Magnavox
MRV700VR/1 writer, under warranty, for repairs. Repairs were not
made. Instead, I was given a replacement combo (Phillips DVDR343V/37). The replacement works fine. It will play my previously unfinalized MRV700VR/1 burns, but it will not finalize them. Now, HOW DO I FINALIZE SOME OF MY ORIGINAL MRV700VR/1 burns? (Must I purchase another MRV700VR/1?)
Well since you can still play the unfinalized discs in your replacement dvd recorder. I would suggest hooking up another recorder to the output of the Phillips DVDR343V/37, then simply play it back and record with the VCR. Now record it back into dvd format by reversing the two (by hooking up Phillips DVDR343V/37 to the video output of the vcr) Now you can finalize DVD to Phillips DVDR343V/37. Probable with a little video picture degradation but something has to give in situations like yours. Good luck, hope that helps.

If you have a timer recording scheduled, the "A" version has a software
problem when trying to finalize disks. I would return the unit if it
is under warranty, especially if it is under warranty.
If it is not, you have several options. Open the unit and make sure
that the ribbon connectors are seated firmly. Purchase a replacement
DVD writer from Magnavox and install it yourself for about $70. Return
it to Magnavox for repair. Get it repaired locally.
I have had excellent luck with the Sony DVD+RW disks that are made in
Taiwan. You might want to check the package and determine if they are
from Taiwan or elsewhere. If you have a PC that has a DVD writer,
check the problem DVD's in the PC.
I think it is your Magnavox, sorry to say.
we may need more details but you can try this for now
1. are you sure you have a cd writer or a dvd writer (writer = burner)--- check the front edge of your cd/dvd unit and look for words like "writer" "burner" or writeable next to the word dvd or compact disc... keep in mind not all cd/dvd writer can write (burn) cd or dvds, some may burn cd but not dvds.
2. is your cd/dvd unit compatible with the media (cd or dvd blank disk) you are trying to use.. depending your cd/dvd especifications your dvd/cd drive is compatible with certain types of cd or dvds that are writeable.
3. is the cd/dvd a writeable cd/dvd and is compatible with your cd/dvd drive? for instance.. if you are using a blank dvd and your cd/dvd drive only burn cd/s and read dvd and cd you won't be able to write to the blank dvd.
4. are you trying to burn a dvd in a corporate computer.?? as a user (not an administrator) of your corporate computer you may not have priviledges that will allow them to burn dvd/cd's even you your drive and your media are compatible.
the error that you get
the brand and model of the computer you're using
the type of media you're using
