If a CD is write-protected, it means that it is closed. Or possobly not formatted. [[CD-R stands for Compact Disc-Recordable and can be recorded only once. You may continue to add files until the CD is full as long as the disc is not closed (write-protected). You cannot delete, rename, rearrange, or alter the files or file structure on the CD after recording.]] Open CD: [[If a CD is open, it means that further information can be added to it. It is not write protected.]]
Closed CD: [[If a CD is closed, it is permanently write-protected. No further information can be added to the disc. Closing a CD is analogous to moving the write-protect tab on a floppy disc to the write-protect position. However, unlike floppies, you can only change the write-protect setting on a burned CD once. Once the disc is write-protected (closed), this setting is permanent.]] You can try this one:There is this program called sound taxi it is suppose to remove write protection. link is here http://www.soundtaxi.us/download.html
This model (PY90DG) DVD recorder supports the following disc recording formats: DVD+RW/DVD-RW/DVD+R/DVD-R for everyday video. These should record fine. The RW discs are for repeated recording/erasure while the R discs are once-only recording types - the R discs must be finalised in this deck to make them playable on other DVD players. DVD-RAM discs are NOT supported by this unit. This recorder will play MP3 files on a CD-R or CD-RW (not DVD-ROM) just fine as well, but will not record them.
Best discs to buy for this type of recorder are DVD-R (recommended brand - Verbatim or TDK if you can get them, but not Memorex). These are OK.
In the Disc Management options you should have the option to change whether disc protection is on or off.
Also, if you have one of the double-sided discs - they look like large computer floppy discs and can be inserted either way up into the machine - some of these have a "write protect" tab just like a floppy disc. Check to see if yours has one and whether it is set in the protect position.
I'm trying to record a DVD and get a message that says "Unsupport" or "protect". I did call Panasonic and they said it needs to be serviced. I just used it the othe day and I can't understand the failure. Whiel on the phone with the Tech support we did try three different + R discs: Imation, TDK and Sony. Can someone help me?
Certain disc only work in certain recorders - I know this sound weird but you must find the disc that is compatible with the recorder that you are using. If the TDK discs is working continue to use the TDK discs. Even though the format and the specifications are the same on both disc, the readers does not read all disc.
Reading the instruction manual - yes, life experience has taught me some really useful stuff! -
Under 'Discs for recording' on page 7 it says at end of section
To ensure proper working of the set we recommend the use of PHILIPS audio CDR and audio CDRW discs only'
Roughly translated I read this to me - 'don't blame us if the set don't work using other (non-compatible) discs' !!
