    DVD doesn't work

    As I was buring a DVD-R I lost power. How can I finalize the disc so that it is readable?

    What burning software was used? Does it have a "Finalize disk" option?

    Might as well try again. Do you need any more coasters in your house, sorry.

    It may not if it was not finalized. The player would have to support the format (DVD+R, DVD-R, etc.). This would be an issue with any burning software, not just the Windows DVD maker.

    I agree with the others that you make that one a coaster and reburn again. If the DVD burner was from HP with "light-scribe" then you can even label it "Coaster" hehe. Most of the time, when a burn is interrupted, it is hard to the system to figure out what to do. Usually it will just say that the CD or DVD isn't of the proper format blah blah blah.
