I have made several DVD-Rs recording from HDD on my Magnavox 515 with no problems.

With the one I just finished I am unable to re-title the individual subjects or add a title to the disc. The only option is to finalize. Has anyone experienced this? I suspect the reason is that the disc has reached it's capacity.

Load the disc, select the DVD drive, and open the display menu which should show how much time remaining at each rec mode on that DVD (bottom right corner)... you can change rec mode with display up and we'd need to know which rec mode has how much time remaining

 

I suppose if it's too low, it wouldn't have any room to add even title info, but that time remaining would be nice to know... ?

I had already deleted the extra space at the end which was just a few seconds. But I always do that. The total time on the disc is 2:09:35 at SP! Could be a record.

That's the problem... max. time on a disc at SP is 2:10:00 if using high-speed dub (HSD) or 2:10:15 if recording/copying direct to DVD. The "Extra Space" at end that you deleted (by overwriting) would still be counted as time on disc, so your disc is certainly full.

 

Here's a chart on disc space.
