Finalizing DVD disc

Question

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.

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..
