Something isn't right here. You should have been able to play this disc with no problem (on the recorder), finalized or not.
I have made a dvd on my lg stand alone DVD VHS burner, but took it out, and to put another in for recording more. tried to put it in to see if there was more room, but it wont recognize it. I thought it needs to be Finalized. Is there a program that i can buy to extract or finalize this , i need whats is on there. PLEASE HELP ME.
