Unfinalized Disc not reading

So i burned pictures onto a dvdr with my burner and didn't finalize it. My burner used to be able to recognize the discs without being finalized, but now none of my discs that werent finalized are reading. How do i fix this problem?

Usually disc's that are'nt finalized will only play in the recorder that there made in unless you finalize them. But what your saying is not making sense. Because you also say now none of my discs that were'nt finalized are reading. When your done with your dvd finalize it. I assume your using dvd-r discs. If you can use dvd+r and booktype to dvd-rom. Now you'll enjoy those dvd's in alot more players then just the one your making your dvd's in. However DVD-r when finalized will work in 99% of players almost. Media can screw you up too. Don't matter sometimes a few bad ones in the batch. But your also saying that none of the disc's that you did'nt finalized are reading. Well right there tells you there is'nt a problem. If there was you would'nt be reading them

I add onto this what software are you using Windows or a burner program like nero to burn to the media? Also what kinda media are you using and what is your burner model and firmware and what speed are you burning at? Reading your response is very confusing....in that you provide general information and not specific problem.

Use the free Imgburn and try to finalize it.
