I recorded 4 hours on r+ dvd got message dvd cannot be used to record

After I got this message could not go back or find the previous 4 hours of recordings. I then tried to record for 5 seconds on three occassions and recorded fine. I was advised to finalized the dvd and I did. I pressed on disc menu then hit number 1 and saw first original program only! I was advise I had a bad dvd?

  1. It is tricky to record DVD movies and use them on another device. For the best compatibility, use these guidelines:

    Use DVD-R discs, and not DVD+R.
    Record ALL segments at once; do not use multisession.
    Finalize immediately after recording.

    Hope this helps.
