recording from camcorder to dvd-rw + playback

Hi, I wonder if you can help a newbie to dvd recording. I own a Sony DVD recorder and record my camcorder mini-dv tapes on to blank Sony DVD-RW dvd's for storage and easy playback. Playback is fine on our Sony DVD recorder but when I make a copy for the grandparents to play on their Samsung (i think) DVD player it does not play back. Is it the type of blank disk I am using?
Thanks for your help

not 100 percent about dvd-rw but on dvd-r you need to finalize the disc to play on another dvd player.

Thankyou windsock. I had not heard of finalizing before but did the trick. Kind Regards
