    Hi, Anyone help. I have a Panasonic DMR-EZ48VEB I am able to record and playback but I never get an option to finalise the DVD on eject or can I find that option on the DVD disc managment. I am using Panasonic DVD -RAM discs and recording from SKY+. Thanks Derek

    The option to finalise a DVD is in Disc Management but you can't do it with DVD-RAM discs.

    they can be re-used and watch while recording etc , so are not the same as the standard disks , and are more like using a hdd in a machine

    have a read of this Which DVD Recorder? @ The Digital Recorder , as it may help you

    RAM's will play in any machine that supports RAM and do not require finalising to do so.

    Unfortunately very few other machines support RAM.

    Well that answerd my query that i have , problem is it will not even play on my pc, strange thing that when i went to see how much it had used it said full disc but zero byts.Trouble at moment is when i done the disc from the vhs i threw the vhs in the dustbin and the disc had our holidays from 1968 with our children on it so have rumaged around the dustbin and brought out 20 odd vhs and have to go through them to see whats on them. If i find it i will redo it on a CD RW. Any way thanks for answer.

    Archive to a DVD-R. These are designed for the job and will be the most universally playable medium.

    To be able to play the RAM disc on a PC you need a drive that supports at least the reading of RAM discs and some software that will play RAM sourced material.
