Cant copy dvd copy

hi all, after copying from tv to 5005 dvd recorder, i cant get any software to burn it to dvd. im using pioneer 108 8x -dvd-r discs, have tried nero,dvd shrink,dvd santa, nti-dvd maker,dvd-lab, nothing opens up the 5005b recorded disc. help please any ideas. cheers.

Did you finalise the disk in the DVD Recorder.

That needs to be done before it can be read in any other machine.

yes bob, done all that,really strange one this, seems that it wont catch anything after the first chapter, when doing a full disc (ie)no chapters i have no problems, have 2 of my mates trying as well without any luck.cheers for the reply.
