HiIn fact after a number of tests I woud say u struck the nail on the head in 
my case. Leaviing a disk unfinalized ( by the standards of my dvrs ) meant 
only windows could read the disks. When I finalized the disks, linux (ubuntu 
in this case) could read them as well. Not trying to rubish those who give us 
ush functionality, but maybe they'be missed something re how windows handles 
this format? I'm   guessing there are some strict guidelines, but maybe 
windows aint payiny attention in that respect? If that's the case, then why 
should linux?
