    I have borrowed a DVD-R/W VR by my dad (Sony GXR7?)

    DVD Player fails unsurprisedly, but the PC thinks it is a blankCD

    So in a DOS prompt

    C:\WINDOWS>dir e:
    The volume does not contain a recognized file system.
    Please make sure that all required file system drivers are loaded and that the volume is not corrupted.

    Any ideas please?

    I want to watch this programme!

    First thought is it's a proprietary format, but I know nothing of CE recorders.

    I think the disc needs finalising by the recorder before it will work in a regular drive.

    I don't think you can finalise it in a PC drive, it will have to be in the sony. Your dad would be able to watch it in the sony without finalising which is where some confusion often arises.
