I have a Zenith XBR413 dvd/vcr recorder. Just bought some Memorex DVD+RW blank discs to do some recording. When I put the disc in the recorder it says "Unknown disc - check disc again" and pops the disc...

You may need dvd- disks instead! ( it usually one or the other!) and if your player does take a DVD+ you might have to change brands of disks ( I know this sounds stupid but all disks are not created equal! and do not work in all players!

Finalizing DVD

If the size of the vhs recording was in 2hr mode, and the size of the recording itself is about 2 hrs, you may not have enough space to finalize. I would use your PC to finalize the disc - I use Dr. Divx, but you can find many finalizing programs out there.

DVD will not finalize

I have a Zenith XBR413 that I have a problem with when I copy from VCR tapes to DVD-R discs. After I copy them, I can finalize the disc using the SETUP button on the remote and then choosing the very bottom disc icon at the bottom of the menu screen. It then leads you through the finalization procedure. But the disc will still not play on any DVD player but the XBR413

you have to finalize the disc first.once it is finalized you can not record any more material on it,so make sure you record everything you want on a disc. you can maximize disc space by changing speeds on the dvd recorder. for example: if you have 5 hrs of stuff on a tape, set the dvd recorder for 6 hrs or more recording time.the quality should be ok [depends on how good of quality you want] if you set the speed for 2 hrs, your quality would be better, but obviously everything won't fit.
hope this helps

remove the cover to make sure that there is nothing in the vcr. if nothing in in it then you either have broken gears or more likely your gear are out of alignment. if out of alignment, best to have a service manual handy to figure out the timming of the gears. good luck.
