    I'm having a problem copying content from my TV to DVD-R's. I am using a Magnavox DVD recorder purchased from Sam's Club that claims to handle all formats, but when I try to record, about five minutes into it, I get an error message, and the machine does not offer a format feature. Is there a way to reformat disks after some content has been written, even though the disk has not been finalized?

    thanks.

    Not with DVD+R or DVD-R.
    If the machine can handle DVD+RW or DVD-RW media, then they could be erased.

    armydlguy- at the risk of sounding silly & not knowing the particular model recorder you have ? You might want to check whether the compatible with all formats actually means record and play or just Play ! Magnavox is to the best of my knowledge a Philips Brand ( owned By & made for ) and Philips is one of the Big wheeels in the DVD+R Camp ! SO perhaps your recorder will play all formats but record only to DVD+R/ DVD+RW ? so you may want to look into that 1st ? goos luck armydlguy
