A disc will not finalize if there is not enough space left on the disc. Discs that are too full cannot be finalized.

Also, make sure the disc you are using has a speed that is compatible for use with your DVD recorder. For example some DVD recorders may be compatible with discs that are rated 8x or slower only. Consult the instruction manual of the DVD recorder for further information. Manuals are posted on your model support page.
