The Toshiba DR620 is a DVD recorder announced at the CES 2009 that features recording and playback abilities for DVD-R, -RW, +R, and +RW media disc formats. The third of four Toshiba D digital video recorders, the Toshiba DR620 is a competitive peer to the DR570 in that it features a DVD/VCR combination recorder (versus just DVD), but ditches its peer's ATSC/QAM/NTSC tuners. In all other ways, however, the DR620 is practically a duplicate of its peer. For instance, the DR620 also offers HDMI-CEC for syncing entertainment devices to one remote. In addition, the DR620 boasts auto-finalization for formatting created-DVDs so that they can be played on other devices, 1080p up-conversion capabilities, and HDMI inputs for high-quality HD video playback. Slated to drop in April 2009, the Toshiba DR620 will retail for $179.99 (same as its peer) and come with a 1 year limited warranty.

No they will not. I'm not the only one that has found this to be true.

It will if you Finalize the DVD. If you don't Finalize, the Toshiba keeps the disc open so you can add additional content to it later.
