After finalizing disk it does not play in computers or other dvds. Unit keeps freezing up in all stages. I have to unplug and re-plug and then lose whatever I am doing and then ruin that part of the dvd.

Newer Paramount DVDs like Transformers 2, Iron Man, and Star Trek will freeze on the logo screen as the stars fly past the camera.
Solution: Make sure the disk is cleaned. Then, as the DVD is loading, place the DVD player on Mute. If it takes, the stars will pass. Finally, once the sequence is finished and the player moves to the next track, you can take it off mute and the rest of the disk will play fine.
Try a different "data" cable between your computer and the external disk-drive.
Try connecting the unit to a different computer.
If it fails there, then the unit itself has a problem:
* the USB-to-disk-drive adapter (inside the casing) has failed;
* the disk-drive (inside the casing) has failed.
Disassemble the external unit, and remove the disk-drive. Connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in some Apple Computer, to see if the data on the disk-drive can still be accessed.
Check with LACIE, to see if their "warranty" is still valid, or if it has expired.
I have to agree with XELIAM regarding finishing the disk, under the DVD "FUNCTIONS" selection from the remote. I also use the SLYSOFT products to transfer my videos to what ever other mode of video I wish to have, whether iPOD (MP4), or DIVX (AVI) or loads of other options. Slysoft makes a GREAT product
We need to narrow down where the problem lies. Even without finalizing
the disc, you should be able to play back the recording. Can you do
this? If you can play back the recording, the problem exists in the
finalization stage and we'll need to concentrate there. Please update
this and we'll proceed to the next step.

Did you finalize the disk? If not, this should solve your problem. When the disk is finalized you should be able to play it on your computer if you can play other DVDs on it. Some other DVD players can only play specific disks (i.e. DVD-R, DVD+R). This may be another problem.
The last problem is probably because you have not ?finalized? the DVD yet. Basically what that does is modify how the data is stored on the DVD so that a normal DVD player can read it. It also prevents you from modifying or recording to the disk any more so make sure you?re done before performing this.
The part about the freezing is more complex, are these commercially recorded DVDs or something someone else recorded?
