My product is Roxio Easy Media Creator 9. It was included in my Dell computer package. I am running Vista Home Premium. My problem is with finalizing a DVD disc.
I have two disc drives. One is HL-DT-ST CD-R/W (the E: drive). The other is PBDS DVRW DL (the F: drive).I had a Video 8 tape recorded on a DVD disc at Wal-Mart. It works fine. I made a copy using the Roxio program. Everything went well, but the disc was ejected as soon as copying was completed not giving me time to try the finalize option. When I put the disc back in and went through the finalizing procedure the disc popped out again and I got this message in a drop down. " Please insert an appendable data disc that is CD media or DVD write-once media." The disc that I am trying to finalize is a DVD-R.
Of course, I can play to disc on my computer, but it will not work on my TV set probably because it is not finalized. If anyone can help with this problem I will appreciate it. Thank you.

How did you burn the disc and using which application? If using MyDVD, the disc is automatically finalized. What brand of DVDs are you using?

It's probably the limited Roxio OEM software from Dell and it sounds like your creating a data disc not copying a DVD Video disc..

Again, I'm not familiar with the product and if it could do what you want.

I could suggest a free software that would do this job for you, # 9 in my signature.

# 9. ImgBurn Current version: 2.5.0.0 CD / DVD / HD DVD / Blu-ray burning application

I used Roxio Creator DE, copy disc. After looking at MyDVD I don't know how to use this to copy a disc from another disc.   ??? Thanks for any other suggestions.

I already explained I can't tell you what I don't know because I have never used your Dell DE version..

What I do know and explained above, ImgBurn a small free burn software will do what you want..

And have you followed cd's instruction? Are you able to play your copied disc now? The copy function within Creator DE should have made identical copy if copy disc function was used.
