Don't waste your time.It is having a problem with the unit, go fix it or forget.Nothing to do with an update on a firmware! If there is a problem with the firmware for this unit,you wouldn't even have a chance to burn any information on it,period!
Go to best buy and get a new unit,price is cheap now!!

It is hard enough to repair these units in person let alone unseen.....
two possibilities....

1) Defective DVD drive ***'y
2) Return this unit to a Panasonic Dealer and request a firmware upgrade

Since your player still works on factory recorded DVDs ?? ..a firmware update should solve this prob. Only a Panasonic dealer will have the right procedure.

    Hmmm......Thought this was the fixit place, not the throw it away and get a new one place ??????
    Do what you want......you are going to anyway....
    I repair these for this problem daily . Often 5 or more, some even under warranty as I do that also. 99% are for finalizing problems and 99% of those are solved with the latest firmware.

Recording Error, Can not record on this disc, E 4 54040990 Just trying to record from TV on a Memorex DVD+RW. Keep getting this error. Any ideas?


Recently started getting the same error message. I thought it was because I was getting to close to full or something that was trying to over fill the discs. Have tried EP and LP and this just started when I had a disc set to record to the end. I can't even open that one or finalize it. The rest do the same. They are working fine and when the error comes up, ZAP the disc is dead, no access.

I also tried putting the same disc into another Magnavox DVD recorder, still no access. These are both the most reliable recorders I've ever owned and I've had a number.

magnavox error message dvd "e 6 2a031000 can not record on this disc."

I suspect at this point, a batch of cheap Nexxtech DVDs. Also it's possible that it's a heat problem with the recorder? Once the disc goes into error mode, it's unreadable and all recordings that haven't been written to the TOC become invisible, but that time is forever lost on the DVD.

DVD is visibly (looking at recording surface) FULL but the supposed record time isn't used up. Data error. Discs reporting wrong size. Try a different brand of DVD.

I have a Sony-MC6 and created a DVD disc that will not finalize.


I recently got my MC6 and have not had this problem. We are using Sony R+ DVD's. After recording it asks if you want to finalize it- select yes. It goes through its gyrations and then ejects. What kind of DVD's are you using?

Does not recognise discs


If this disc that you are trying to use is a DVD+/-RW and it has been used a few times for DVD-Video or DivX then you can try to do a FULL ERASE using the excellent ImageBurn by lightining now at v2.5.0.0 it takes about 20 mins to erase a full single sided DVD

Hope this helps.

Finalizing a dvd


THis solution follows on from ThaMP3Doctor's one which i rated 'helpful', as although it doesnt solve the problem it gave me the clue which helped me to solve the problem i posted above - so im kind of answering my own question here!

The reason THaMp3Doctor's solution was only rated helpful is becasue as far as i can find, you cant finalize the disk in your PC, you have to do it in the camcorder.

so here goes: Following ThaMp3Doctor's comment that if the disc is full it doesnt finalize i checked to see how full my disc was - it only had 25 secs of record time left. so i deleted a scene i knew i wasnt going to use and tried to finalize again = it worked! :-)

Please give this a try and rate my solution as would like to know if others have success with it. good luck!
