Question about iLO DVDR04
My iLo DVDR04 Recorder will not read blank dvds. It keeps coming up "invalid" and "fail" when trying to read my blank dvds. I just bought brand new blank dvds, and it just wont read them. What would be the problem?
Your dvd writer is bad you will have to replace it believe me i now what im talking about i have went through 4 ilo's did the same thing plus 100's of differnt name brand dvd's

It is time to change the drive or keeping the unit cooler, I have been through this a couple times in the past ...trying different brands of disk and rebooting the Unit may only buy you a few more recordings, but the End result comes down to Heat and/or Swapping the drive out. I have used different disk brands one will work one day and not the next, you will save money to either replace the unit or if you are electronically inclined you can swap the drive out and add an internal fan to the mainboard to cool it down, this usually helps the boot problems
(stuck on "Hello") But these are not Permanent fixes for this unit
as RonPar stated above "You may save yourself the Headache/Money and replace the unit"

Try a different brand of disc. Some of them are picky about the brand they will read. I ahd a machine that will not read memorex...but Maxell, NO PROBLEM.

DVDR04 YOUR BLANK DISK HAVE TO BE 8X SPEED OR LESS TO RECORD ON THIS MODEL

Make sure that you have the right + or - disc. ILODVDR04 uses + discs and using a - disc will cause the problem (and vice versa for other types of machine). The correct disc for an ILO is DVD+R or DVD+RW (for the rewritables).

SOURCE: Recording Fall, Invalid disk
Try using Sony +R discs. or +RW's are good, any brand as long as they are +'s. For some reason alot of +R discs brands will not work, I wait and just get Sony +R or the +RW's on sale and stock up and I have no more troubles. Mine is the 05MU. The ZU is a little strange with the RW but will still record. Hope this helps.

Try another brand of blank dvd's a -R or +R as this is a compatibly issue
If all else fails buy verbatims as they are universal
