CD-R how to finalise



I have copied lots of photos to a CD-R. It will not play on my DVD player. I understand it requires to be finalised but I cannot see how to do this. Can anyone help?

What is the program that you are using to burn your CD? i.e. Nero will have a selection somewhere to actually finalise a disk. If the disk is not finalised only the last session burnt will be visible on the machine, but, as you have discovered, it is not usable on another device. I don't have a burning program loaded at the mo. so, cannot be more specific.

Depends on your software but you can burn another file onto it and select "finalise sessions" - it warn that you willl not be able to add any more sessions.

Be aware, however, that lots of DVD players won't play multi-session disks!
