I have a DVD burned and finalized from DVD Recorder (Thanks Geekstogo). Disc plays on computer DVD drive. Using CD Burner XP software and DVD-R disc. When I try to copy disc it goes through Copying, Burning, Writing process for about four minutes and ejects disc indicating copy successful. Finalize disc is selected. Copied disc will not play from DVD drive and is not recognised in DVD player. Ideas please!
Thanks :D

What type of content are you copying (if it's video, what format is it in?).

Some standalone DVD-players can't playback content recorded on to DVD-R media, not even if it's finalised.
Mine is one such example. Apart from commercial DVD-movies of course, it can only playback content recorded on DVD+R media.

I copied and finalized video from an 8mm Video cassette.

As far as format, when I open disc in Windows Explorer I get .ts .bvp and .vop; is that even a format? Where do I get format info from?

Owners manual on LG DVD recorder indicates DVD-R "Playable on regular DVD players (after finalization)"

Again they play but can't be copied on computer drives.

:D
