Non-finalized DVD-R

I do not know which public community to pick to discuss this matter. So I
picked movie maker community. A friend of mine oversea sent me several TV
programs recorded on DVD-R medium in DVD-Video format. Unfortunately, they
appear non-finalized, and can not be played on my standalone DVD player. Of
course, I could send them back to him, and let him to finalize the DVD-R
discs with his machine. But, instead, I want to finalize the discs with my
computer if possible. The problem is that my Pioneer DVD-R/RW drive does not
recognize the these discs. Any help?

================================
Can you play the DVDs on your computer?

If you go to...My Computer...and right click
the drive letter for your DVD drive can you
explore the DVDs? If_yes_what are the file
formats? Do you see a VIDEO_TS folder
with VOB files?

Thanks for your suggestion.
I doubt that it is Region Code issue because the contents of the discs are
supposed to be TV programs recorded by my friend in oversea, and not
commercially made DVD discs.

Thanks, John.
No, I can not explore the DVD in the drive with "My Computer".
As I mentioned previously, my Pioneer DVD-R/RW drive can not recognize these
discs.

Sorry...but it was not clear that you had used the method I suggested.

Maybe the following software can access the files on the DVDs.

What I am saying is that your friend may have purchased blank DVD disks
appropriate to the Region code where he resides.

He recorded onto these Region X disks and you are trying to play them on DVD
player good for only Region 1 disks.

The Region code is embedded in the disk, not in the source recorded
material.
