Finalizing Dvds Burned With Standalone Dvd Recorder

Question

I am trying to finalize a bunch of dvds that were burned with a Standalone Toshiba DVD Recorder which is now broken. I tried using finalize disk under tools but it rejected it and said to put in an appendable disk. The Disks are DVD-Rs. Any help would be so appreciated. Thank you.

How do you know they were not finalized?

I burned them so I know they were never finalized. I had an injury and finalizing them was hard on the shoulder. Never thought my machine would break.

Have you asked Toshiba?

 

You may have to use somethign like Isobuster to see if it will recover the files on the disc. Looking to see will be free but you would have to pay for the Isobuster program to actually recovere the files. Once you have the files back, you can use VideoWave/MyDVD to burn them to another disc. How many of them do you have?

 

Read this for some background.

What is on the discs? Do you have the original source?

When you look at the disk in my computer it shows nothing. But in Nero and other programs they do recognize that something is on the disk doing disk info. Toshiba is no help. I talked to Toshiba on the phone and they had no suggestions. A store let me bring one disk in to try on a newer model and it would not play the disk at all.

Did you try what I suggested re: Isobuster? I thnk that may be the only way.

I was hoping for a simple solution and if there was none then using IsoBuster. I have used it in the past. I was hoping that maybe the disks could be finalized. Thanks for the suggestions.

Sounds like your discs are standard DVD-VR and you need some way to convert them to standard DVD-/+R.
