    If it was authored on the PC as a DVD video, then it is finalized and should play on another player (assuming it can recognize DVD+R media).

    If it was a file (perhaps an AVI) that was simply written to a DVD as data to be played on a DivX certified player, then even if it was not finalized, the player should accept it.

    The DVD recorder can only finalize disks that it has recorded.
