Tapes have transferred to discs okay., but will not play in any other

Devices, only play in the Samsung unit. Why?

The region codes need to match. Page 35 in the manual explains this here: Click Here Once you finalize the disc the disc can only be played in other Region 1 players. Region free players can sometimes play them as well.
