Is there any kind of software that I can purchase that can finalize DVDs that are already recorded. Let me explain. I had a DVD recorder a couple of years back that I transfered many sporting events from my VCR to DVD. However, I didn't know that I had to finalize these DVDs. Now, when I try to play these on the various players around my home, I get various error messages. Now I've figured out that I have to finalize these discs, and I have a different recorder, so I'm not having this problem anymore, but I'm wondering if there is any software out there that can allow me to finalize these discs so I won't have to re-record everything. If anyone has any advice, I'd love to hear it. Thanks!

I've read that you have to finalize with the recorder you used to copy from, but I did just read on another site with the same problem and they went to E-Bay and found a very cheap recorder the same as the old recorder which they had copied with the first time and won the bid, back in business.

Cheaper than taking to professional.
