    Hello, I have a DVD disc my mom created with a VHS>DVD converter machine and I'd like to make a backup image and maybe edit the video, but I can't get ImgBurn (or any utility) to recognize it. She says it plays fine on her DVD Player attached to her TV, but my 2 computers both cannot access the data. My DVD Player on my TV cannot recognize the disc. Windows says disc is blank. ImgBurn and IsoBuster report seeing something (see below) but I'm not sure how to interpret it, because I don't know much about discs and disc drives, and would appreciate help from you experts.

    Using ImgBurn I have tried to Close the Track/Session/Disc but get some errors such as "Illegal Request", "Empty or Partially Written Reserved Track", and "Invalid Field in CDB". Details below.

    Drive is Samsung SH-B123L SB04 - I checked Samsung/TSST web sites and this is the latest firmware.

    Any suggestions? Thanks!

    ====IsoBuster shows:

    --Open Session 1
    ----Track 01 through Track 06 of various sizes

    Track 02 containing some typical DVD .ifo and .vob files of ~500MB or ~1000MB. But when I try to "Extract" Track 02 the resulting .iso file is only 32KB. When I extract the others, I get ISO files that I cannot successfully open with anything.

    Unless the disk was 'finalized' in the machine that recorded it, it won't be recognized by a different standalone player or PC.
    Usually (in DVD recorders) there is a menu accessed which offers to finalize the disk.
    If it's not possible to finalize the disk in the original recording device IsoBuster should be able to recover the files.
