It would help if you would say your model of DVD recorder.
This thread was originally started by one who had a Toshiba dr430KU and I had downloaded the manual for that one and saw it was the same as my DR560 and DR670. These Toshibas all show in the Manual you can set auto chapters for any kind of disc it shows it will record on. The trick is you must set up the chapter time setting BEFORE you record on the DVD.
In other words the Toshiba can do auto chapter on DVD-RW and -R in Video Mode or VR Mode (Video mode plays on more players).
It also can do it on DVD+RW and +R but these only record in +VR Mode.
If you do have a Toshiba 430 as this thread starter, the info is on Page 8 and 9 showing what it can do as far as auto chapter marks. On Page 34, it explains how to set up the auto chapter.....it is a setting of minutes, such as every 10 minutes, every 15 minutes, each. And it says it has to do this before any recording is done.
The reason why you may have gotten a greyed out area is because you said you already recorded on the DVD and if so and it is set up like the Toshiba, I would guess it is telling you by the greyed out area that the option is not currently
available. (because the DVD already has recordings on it).
You might try a DVD -RW in Video Mode as an experiment. That way, if you don't get what you want, at least you can format the disc again and use it over.
Hope this helped.
