Can't finalize DVD-RW data burn


Recommended Posts

I can't finalize a data project (photo files),using Creator Classic, burned to a DVD-RW.

The "finalize" option is not available when I start the burn, nor are any of the options. It is will only burn using the the "track at once, finalize sesion don't finalize disk. Then I view the disk in Creator Classc, the "finalize" option is shadowed and unavailable.

So I can burn the DVD, but not open it any other computer.

How can I finalize this this so it can be opened/viewed in other computers?


I'm using Easy CD & DVD burner v6.2.1.130

Gateway laptop

Windows XP, sp 2 plus all updates

Toshiba SD-R6112 cd-dvd buner and checked for driver updates

using Sony DVD-RW 1x-2x as suggested by Toshiba


Thanks for any help - Kris

If the idea is to KEEP the data, you would be advised to use R media - the recrystalized aluminum alloy of RW media immedeatly starts to decrystalize, taking the data with it.


RW is useful for testing, and for short term things like transferring data if you don't have a Flash drive (aka Pen / Keychain / Thumb / Jump drive), but not long-term reliable.
