I've tried to record on a number of different blank DVDs, all having the DVD logo, DVD-R, DVD-RW.
When I insert the blank DVD I get a Disc Error message saying: Please eject the disc. Playback feature may not be available on this disc.
What's the best Blank DVD to record on and does the write speed (4X, 8X) and the capacity have any bearing?
OK. Finally "solved" this problem. You must use the brand name "Maxell" DVD disks, 2x or 4x (maybe 8x). Do not use variable speed disks (e.g. 1x--4x) or 16x. Walmart carries these!
The DVR -RW 2x finally got mine to record. I didn't think this would work, but it did. I am still experimenting with it. Had to download (free) VLC player to get it to play on my computer. Works fine in other DVD players.
Credits to the Sears' repairman, the guy at F., and my patience!

If the disk is copywrite protected, your recorder is designed to not record be it an rw or whatever disk. Try making the copy with your computer and use DVD Shrink software still available on line. This software will decode and shrink the data to fit your blank. Since the software cannot be updated (legal reasons), it might not work, and you will have to resort to DVD Fab for the decoding process. There should be no hassle with older disks.
Recorded from tv shows to DVD Disc have to hookup AV RCA component cables to both to Tv and DVD recordable player model connections together.Yes,u will able to recordable VHS tapes to DVD Discs.But ur DVD player model u have it is must be a recorderable DVD player model?Not just a DVD Discs and VHS tapes player only model.Check ur owner manual all are in there.
You may have to check the options for the player. Some DVD players cannot play formats other than regular DVDs. You can check the options to see if it can be put in a different mode from the normal one, such as progressive scan, which can help it to read DVDs better in some ways. You can also set it up to accept more types than just DVDs, but also DVD-Rs and VCDs. I cannot tell you, without fiddling around with it, whether you will need to take it in to a shop, but that is an option. Once you see about adjusting some of the settings, see if it won't play a DVD.
Does it work on store bought DVD's?If it does it means it's not compatable with homemade dvd's on pc's or other recorders.If it dose not you have a dirty lens.If a lens cleaning cd doesn't work,the dvd deck has to be replaced,probably exspensive.
Same here! It would say something along the lines of "this type of disc cannot be played. please insert a different disc." it's the appropriate dvd region, i've tried all types of dvds, and it still won't work. the vhs and cd still works, it's just the dvd player that won't.
