How can I copy more than one film to a DVD+R?

    I've tried to copy a film onto a DVD+R but as soon as the transfer is
    finished, the recorder 'finalises' the DVD so I cannot copy any more onto
    the same DVD.

    Is there some way I can get round this problem?

    Another case of not RTFM...
    Normally you can select if to automatically finalise at the end of
    recording in the set up or record menu. Anyway, what are we talking
    about here, a computer drive, a stand alone DVD recorder or what?!

    It would help if you told us what software you are using.

    It's a Panasonic DMR-EX77EB. and the manual was written in chinese,
    translated to urdu, then to german, then to italian, and finally to english,
    as they usually are, and contain no information of any sense!

    I'll try to read it again, but previous attempts have not been at all
    helpful!

    I'm not sure if any software is in use, it is not using a computer, but the
    recorder presumably has something built in.

    As I said in another post, I'll try to make some sense out of the manual,
    but I don't hold out any hope!

    Have a play with it, actually go and look through the various menus
    options, any thing that mentions "record" and "Finalising (disk/disc)"
    is going to be relevant in some way. I don't have a Panasonic DVD
    recorder but do have one of their TV's and have used their video
    cameras and whilst some of the wording in the manual could be better
    they are a lot better than the LG stuff I've had - clue, US English is
    the second language of Japan so I doubt that the problem is really
    their end...

    Oh, and perhaps if you tried posting your question the (correct)
    uk.tech.digital-tv group you might come across someone who has or uses
    the same recorder, this group is more about using video cameras and
    computers to make video content.
