I bought the Magnavox ZV450MW8 VHS/DVD recorder combo for the main purpose of transferring some old tapes to dvd. Recently, I've recorded some programs from television (analog cable). When I go to watch them on the same unit I recorded them with, there is no problem. But when I try to watch them on another player, nothing happens. Is there something I'm forgetting to do when doing the recording process? I didn't see a "finalize" option or anything when completing a recording. I felt like an idiot when letting a co-worker borrow one of these recorded discs only to find that she couldn't watch it. I thought for a moment that it could be the format that's the issue as these are +R dvds, but she tried it in two different players and her PC with no success. My other dvd player at home plays +R and it won't play on it either. Any help anyone can provide will be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
