Question about Sony RDR-HX715 DVD Recorder

Open Question

DVD recorder will not dub HDD to DVD - format problem?

My Sony RDR-HX715 recorder will not copy from HDD to DVD. When I insert a blank DVD (both +R and -R, up to 16X) it gives a disc error. When I try to dub, it tells me the disc is unrecordable. I cannot get to dub mode with any of the blank DVDs

Sony support is no help with this

Any suggestions?

SOURCE: failure to record on -R DVDs

DVD-Rs do work with the RDR-VX500 ...... I had not recorded on mine for a few months after I ran out of the last batch ....... then I tried recording on the newer Sony DVD-Rs I had ...... would not record on DVD-R ..... turns out the instructions say the recorder will not work with any DVDs faster than 8x .... It looks like it's recording but it doesn't ..... then I noticed the newer DVDs were 16x ...... found an old 8x and tried it and it works fine ..... turns out the unit won't record slower on a 16x, it just won't record at all ...... get 8x and you'll be ok

Had the same problem. I have the Sony RDR VX560 which I presume is similiar. You left out one step after dubbing. You need to "Finalize" in order to play the DVD in other equipment. See System menue or read the Operating Instructions. It would probably been appropriate for Sony to put a footnote in the dubbing instructions. Oh well.

VCR DVD Recorder not dubbing


I called the manufacturer and realized I was using the wrong type of recordable DVD disc to dub to. Non copy protected VHS tapes dub just fine as long as I'm using the proper disc.

Sony hxd890=rec from hdd to dvd


I had the same problem but changed the recording mode to SP. I used a DVD-RW to high speed dub a two hour film and a documentary about a holiday island.

Both dubs were perfect.

Will not dub to dvd-r from HDD in high speed mode


It will only high speed dub in the speed it was recorded in. You can dub, for example, SP on your hard drive to SP on a DVD. You cannot dub high speed, for example, SP on your hard drive to LP on a DVD.
