    If the tapes are ones you recorded yourself, you shouldn't have any problems. If they are bought tapes though, they may well be protected with macrovision which means your dvd recorder will refuse to copy them. Finalising a disc means that it can be read by another drive, until it is finalised it can have further content added to it and can only be read by the drive that burned it.

    Taiyo Yuden are normally reckoned as being the best you can get in DVD-R, but I'm not sure about +R. Have a look here http://svp.co.uk/products-list.php?bid=0&cid=115 and look for the customer ratings.

    I've done more than a few. I use a re-writable in the recorder and simply use DVDShrink if all I want to do is trim the start/end. Then I burn to my disc of choice, Verbatim -Rs. With my Pioneer recorder I have a choice of VIDEO or VR mode. I use VIDEO which creates a standard playable DVD.
