Question about Toshiba DR4 DVD Recorder
I have the same problem. What I found was the recorder will not recognize a disc that was inserted into the machine and then the machine is turned off. If I load a disc, either a -R or -RW, program the timer recording and DO NOT turn the recorder off, then the unit does make the recording. I called the Toshiba techs and the only thing they recomended was to return the machine to them for repair at a flat rate of $140. The unit only cast $180. A friend of mine has the same recorder and he is going to check if it will recognise a previously loaded disc after the unit is turned off and back on. Perhaps everyone with this problem should call Toshiba so they can make a firmware update for the DR4s. I hope this helps. MW
