hello i have been checking the newbie posts for over an hour and still cannot find the help i need so i hope you can help me
i have a panisonic dmr e55 dvd recorder and i ma having a lot of trouble with getting the dvd-r discs to finalize
now i called panisonic (on hold for only 38 min....wow) and the guy said that the reason was cuz i bought the 50 pack of media and that if i had bought a smaller pack (15 - 25) that i would not have so many fail at finalizing. does this make sense to you
i could be wrong but i would think that they have the same stuff coming down the line and just switch the packaging as per needed ....this is how we did it at oral-b but that was toothbrushes hahaha so i don't know
basicly i just want to record my tv shows on dvd until the box set for that show comes out. i have been doing this for years (even befor dvd box sets were avalible) on my vcr tapes. the problem is i don't want to record the show (usualy 4-6 episodes per tape (now disk)) just to find that when i go to finalize that it does'nt work and i no longer have those episodes.
dvd-r are cheap enough that i don't mind recording only once (so long as i know that it will work) i have some dvd ram but they are more expensive and i can't use them on any of my other players. i know they record cuz their is no finalizing. this player cannot use dvd-rw at all
i hope someone can get back to me soon as the last day i can return it is this week
