hello folks, i suppose someone'll say i shouldn't have gotten a philips in the first place, but hey, it was free! anyway, the problem is, i put it on this morning, there was a partially recorded dvd+r in it, and it spat it out. i've tried a whole lot of discs and any blank or un-finalised +r discs are spat out. +rw seems okay, and finalised +r is okay. now, i need a replacement machine quite urgently, i don't have time to wait for some un-cooperative human to not really fix it. does anyone know, if i buy another machine, perhaps a sony multi-format one, will it be able to recognise and finalise my un-finalised discs? any help much appreciated, look forward to hearing from someone... anyone... please?
