Dvds won't finalize



My DVD player won’t finalize DVDs anymore. I’ve talked to the support people at the company and they told me it was because I was using 16x DVDs and not, at the most, 8x. I’ve tried to find 8x but I can’t anywhere–not at Staples, Circuit City, Radio Shack or online. First, I want to know if this could really be the problem and second, where do I buy 8x or less DVDs?

I’m using an Emersoon EWR20V5.


You can get 8x Taiyo Yuden or Verbatim online at rima.com or supermediastore.com if you are in the US. Both are excellent quality. If your recorder can take +R disks, I’d get the Taiyo Yuden 8x +R.

You can still find Verbatim 8x at Best Buy, at least the last time I checked. The ones I saw had the movie reel design on the top of the disks.

Don’t know if this is the cause, but the firmware of the recorder may not support 16x media well.


Thank you so much!
