Why am I unable to playback a recorded DVD on other DVD players?


You will need to finalize DVD+R, DVD-RW or DVD-R to play them back on other DVD players.

This screen will be shown once a recording is stopped/finished:


After the above procedure is complete, you will need to finalize the disc by performing the following steps:

  1. Press the STOP button on the remote control.
  2. Press [SETUP]
  3. Use [ / ] to select "Disc Edit", then press [OK]
  4. Use [ / ]  to select "Finalize", then press [OK]
  5. Use [ / ]  to select "Yes", then press [OK]
  6. Finalizing is completed and the disc can now be played back on other DVD players

~ Once you have finalized a DVD+R / DVD-R, you cannot edit or record anything on the disc

~ There is no need to finalize a DVD+RW

~ When you insert a DVD-RW finalized with this unit, "Undo Finalize" will be shown instead of "Finalize". To release the finalizing for the disc, select "Undo Finalize"

~ DO NOT power off during the finalization process as this will result in malfunction.
