SOURCE: The DVD blank disk is

The laser head is covered in dust so the sensor detects a very low return signal. This is interpreted as a bad disk.
The sensor must be cleaned. Open the unit, access the mechanism and do a thorough cleaning inside it, access the laser head and using a can of compressed air blow all the dust on, in and around it - be especially thorough with the space between the lens and the sensor. Finally  wipe the lens gently with a q-tip.
If this doesn't completely eliminate the problem then the dust has been baked on the surface of the plastic lens - this is unfixable you will have to replace the laser head, the entire mechanism if you can't find just the head.

SOURCE: my Sony Blue Ray has

If you can play standard dvd movies without a problem, then you are looking at a laser pickup assembly issue. The blue ray disc require more precision to provide the higher resolution when it is demanded, this is an early indicator of impending failure in the assembly. However there is a small chance that cleaning the laser pickup lens may solve the problem but unlikely.

Instructions on how to burn from my insignia DVD to VHS


my Insignia is a different model (NS-drVCR) but I always use the "DUBBING" button on the remote (which is basically the tech-term for a Recording-Transfer). The screen-dialog then shows VHS Dubbing to DVD with quality options to choose. I'm not as familiar with going the other way (from DVD to VHS) but I know that mine can since I've done it once with a similar method, starting with the DUB-button.

Dvd won't play back on another dvd player


Has the DVD disk been FINALIZED? my Insignia is a different model (NS-DRVCR), but I'm guessing they might work the same where one of the menu options is to Finalize your disc. This makes it so it can be read in other players.

Lost instructions, cannot create DVD from cam-corder recording


Thanks, I already solved the problem. There was no "Setup" button (on the remote, anyway) to follow the instructions given -- in the manual, which I downloaded!.

Instead, I remembered that "Input" often allows you to select a source for something, so when I chose THAT button, I was able to choose the port that had my cam-corder.

Then I simply pressed record on the DVD player while Play on the C-C.

Cannot finalize a dvd.


being that it is a display model , there are acouple of things it could be
first try cleaning the laser lens with a disk that goes in there , if that don't let it finalize then the laser lens should be cleaned manually, and if that don't do it then there is an internal problem ,which then it would need repair
