    I made a recording on DVD-RW using DVD-VR mode. It plays fine in recorder. But my NEC 2500A would not recognize the disc before and after it is finalized. Do I need to install some kind of driver? Thanks!

    Hi cchang,

    I don't think you need any special drivers to view finalized DVD-RW recorded in DVD-VR mode. I remember I recorded one DVD-RW on DVD-VR mode with my JVC about a month ago. I finalized it. Then I was able to view it in my Windows 2003 PC in my LiteOn 404S.

    I think that's what it is.

    Windows XP, and also Windows 2003, have built in CD burning engine by Roxio. You can burn CD-R and CD-RW data disks with Windows explorer. And probably XP and 2003 have some kind of UDF reader driver built in.

    VR mode blows. Maybe that's just me.

    WinME would never read the UDF system. But WinXP Pro is fine with it.

    Just downloaded and installed the UDF reader called ReadDVD from the following web site:

    Now my windows 2000 system can read the finalized DVD-VR mode DVD-RW without problem. Thanks for the hints.
