    NOTE: This question has been asked many times but never really answered by Microsoft. Again, closing a session and finalizing are not the same, PLEASE do not answer the question if you don't know the difference.


    Background: Many government agencies require that writable media have an approved write protection feature. i.e. the write-protect switch on a 3.5" floppy disk


    As far as I can tell Win10 or any windows version cannot finalize a disc, it can only close a session. Additional sessions multi-session can be added, making the disk still writable until it's full or until it can be finalized using 3rd party software.

    :)

    Close / Finalize DVD Disc


    Does this work?
    To close a disc session manually

    • Open Computer by clicking the Start button

      , and then clicking Computer.
    • In Windows Explorer, click the disc burner drive, and then click Close session on the toolbar.
      The session will be closed, so the disc can be used in other computers.

    Close / Finalize DVD Disc


    I have been trying to create a DVD with some photos and while they can be read on Windows 10 computers, they cannot be read on my DVD player. This is because the DVD write session has not been closed, as evidenced by the fact I can add more photos from my computer. The settings for the recording are to close the session after a mastered burn, but I don't see how to choose mastered - I just get UDF. Also the suggestion to get a close the session from the toolbar doesn't work in Windows 10. So, the question remains: how do I close a DVD session (or indicate I want to create a mastered burn). Thanks.

    Close / Finalize DVD Disc


    HI all

    Have recorded onto DVD-r disc but cannot find any means of closing / finalizing the disc which means we cannot play the disc on our DVD player. We have just installed the windows 10 update but cant find how to do it.

    Cheers
