I just started burning DVDs with Nero 7 Premium with limited success. (Basically, Iâ€™m using Nero Vision to add video files to a DVD â€“ not burning ISO files) Some burns would work on my DVD player, and some would not â€“ without changing any of the setting or the type of blank discs. It would be a crapshoot.
Then I read about â€œfinalizing discsâ€ and how that had to be done in order for the DVDs to be recognized by players. Great, I thought, I probably had a box unchecked or something.
So under the â€œmoreâ€ tab on the Nero Vision Screen I found â€œFinalize Discâ€. Super. Except every time I check it, it would say â€œmedia not supportedâ€.
I am using Imation 4x DVD-RW discs. I then tried A Verbatim DVD-R Disc. No dice.
My DVD writer is HP DVD Writer 840e.
My questions are:
- Do DVDs need to be finalized in order to play on stand alone DVD players?
- Is it possible itâ€™s my DVD writer and not Nero that is causing this?
- Am I even asking the right questions?
