I went out and bought some DVD RW+ disks. Copied from TV off to Toshiba and finalized. Then copied them to my personal cloud. Then re-formatted and re-copied new info onto disk. I don't know how many times, but also used at least 3 different disks from pack. I then tried again and the disk will not finalize. I can't get disks to read on another machine because it is not really finalized. I have unplugged recorder for an hour to factory reset, because I couldn't do that either and then recorded another bit and finalized, but it still is not finalized. I even used a new disk that needed to be formatted before use and it still will not finalize. I know it has to be software or some kind of settings that I may have changed. Can someone please help!!! I bought Memorex cause that was the only dvd rw disks that they sold. Again worked several times and now will not work on any new disks. I did, not on last one, edit with hide chapters and split title to get rid of extra recorded stuff, and after that it stopped finalizing, but used a new dvd and formatted and copied 2 movies on it and tried to finalize and it did not work.

The manual for the DKR40KU says that DVD+RW disks can only be recorded in VR mode. Is it possible that you are set for Video Mode and that's why there are problems?
I have a different Toshiba - the DVD620KU - but I don't think I've experienced these problems.

I think that it automatically records only in VR mode. When I take the disk out and back in the TV says something like +RW +VR so I am assuming that it is set on VR mode. Thanks...I did check out the recording in General Settings and it says Aspecit Ratio (Video Mode) and settings are for auto, 4:3, and 16:9 and I changed it back to auto, but still no luck. Thanks!
