Do I need to finalize DVD+R?

Hi,

I read somewhere that DVD+RW discs didn’t have to be finalized to be able to watch them in other players or DVD-ROMs.
Does anyone know if the same applies to DVD+R?

Thanks in advance.

I guess your talking of multi-session?


#3

Yes.


#4

I just found out that DVD+Rs HAVE to be finalized.


#5

What happens if they’re not finalized?


#6

or else some dvd drives will have hard time recognizing the disk and not able to read it in some cases.

aah i see, no wonder the divx player takes forever to load and play the movies!!
I must tick that ‘Finalize’ box in future.

actually, i think +R/RW media is capable of multisession/lossless linking whereas -R/RW media is not. i may be wrong but i think the -R/RW HAS to be finalized whereas +R/RW media DOES NOT unless you don’t plan on writing anymore sessions to the disc.
