It may depend on the DVDs you are using. I had to experiment with my Toshiba Dr560 to get a title. I found that if I set a disc to finalize, a "title menu" is auto created. What I wanted was a Title List so I could edit it.
A DVD-RW in Video Mode only shows me a title menu, not a title list, so I can only PLAY from that Menu.
I found I could only delete a title to reuse the space IF the DVD is unfinalized.
A DVD+RW does not need to be finalized and if you make sure it is not set to auto finalize when done, then you will be able to get a title list, edit it, play from it, etc. You also see preview windows of each title recorded. Pretty neat.
If a +RW is finalized, you can unfinalize it by adding a new recording.
If a -RW is finalized on the Toshiba, the same unit can unfinalize the disc so you can add to it, see the title list, etc.
Hope this helps.
