[qanda]This thread is about the Sony RDR-HX910. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]I used the SONY RDR-HX900 to record a tv show to a blank DVD (sony dvd). It can be play in this particular player. However it is not recognised by other DVD players (even my pc doesn’t recognise it)
can anyone tell me y is this so and what is the solution to it??
tks a million.

Did you finalized the disc before removing it to play on other player?

You have to finalize the DVD.

It could also be the recording mode used. Most recorders have two options: VR mode, which is used when you want to edit. And Video mode, which is the actual DVD video specification.

And yes, the disc needs to be finalized.
