I timer recorded a cable TV program last night. It recorded just fine and I can watch it on the 5005. But when I went to finalize the disk, it would not finalize. The front panel indicator kept “searching” by displaying the “moving dashes”. The “Finalize” screen from the Easy Guider showed 00% finalized. It stayed this way for over 5 minutes. Finally I had to turn off the power to stop it. I checked it again and was able to play the disk. I attempted to finalize a second time and it did the same thing.
Do I have any alternatives for finalizing, if I can’t get it to work on the 5005? It has never done this before. I have recorded and finalized more than 15 disks so far. Each one used exactly the same media. All the disks came from the same 100 disk spindle.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
