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?

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.
