Re: disc error

Try using a lens cleaning disc (any brand). You'll find them at Wal-Mart in the electronics section, or even in your grocery store, probably near the cameras.

Disc not reading. toshiba dr420 dvd recorder.

Multiple problems with the DVD recorder one of them could be the lasers not reading correctly its software is messed up or there something wrong with this but to me it sounds more like the DVD recorder has a problem I've experienced this problem before not with this particular type of DVD recorder I fix the problem by unplugging the DVD player for about 20 seconds to a minute to give it a good reset.
Quick tip: most high Tech Device problems or unknown errors can be fixed by simple restart or reset hope this helps

DVD+RW playback problem(s)

same prob with the shows freezing up

with a DVD+/- RW disc the amout of time keeps dropping because with every recording process the disc loses a life you can burn those disc 200 times before they become useless so the disc might be beyond the life peroid or bad

my prob is with the DVD-/+R disc tho and i figured it out the disc was bad

for the grinding noise if its hi piched its normal thats the disc spinning up to read or write speed

if that not the case something is rubbing in there and that might explaine the writting errors

the disc manurfacture dose not take resposnablity for defective disc and any loss they have caused(if the data is lost)

Recording Error "Can not record on this disk/E4 54037380

I had that exact same problem. I would record a bunch of dvds with no problems for months and then some and one day it doesn't work. Only this showed up E4 EA03738B. However I've found the solution. Instead of going out and returning the recorder or buying new dvds just purchase a Laser Lense Cleaner. It's a dvd cleaner. Works like a charm.

This is a disc read problem the discs recommended in the manual seem to be the only discs that will work on this machine.
I was getting the same error code everytime but the disc that i know does work is a Verbatim 16X DVD-R.
These discs work in all situations on my machine , dubbing and direct from TV.
