Question about Toshiba DR4 DVD Recorder
Toshiba D-VR4XSU VCR/DVD Recorder
I've had this unit for about 6 months and finally had a chance to play with recording on DVD.
Never did this before, but I CAN follow the manual's directions!
I put in a new disc, DVD-RW, selected video mode, and was about to look at the next step in the manual when a message came up telling me the disc was not formatted, and did I want to format it.
Hmmm. That wasn't in the manual! Figuring there wasn't much choice if I was going to get anywhere, I selected yes to format it. It took a few minutes. Afterwards I followed the rest of the steps to set up the timer.
Then I got a message to insert a recordable disc. ??! The newly formatted disc was already in there! I ejected it, slid it back in, and got an "incorrect disc" message.
What's going on? Anyone know?
I have same TOSHIBA D-VR4XSU VCR/DVD RECORDER. According to the
manual, you (COULD) can use for recording: DVD-RAM, DVD-RW and DVD-R (see page 50). WRONG!!! I bought all 3 types of discs, but after few
weeks I got same experience you got now. Just type DVD-R works. The other
types were - wasted money and a lot of time trying to finalize the disc. I had to
throw all into the garbage. Try DVD-R and you should?? be O.K.
