What software are you using to burn and what type of dvd are you trying to burn.(+), (-), or (RW). Do you have a copy of NERO? has NERO (I think) try a different then try a different disk. Some where it even said to try defragging the hard drive...It wouldn't hurt. Let me know what happens. Good Luck, Tim

The video in the PVR is not in DVD or Blu ray format. You'll need software to convert the video format on the PVR to DVD first. there are several converters that will do that. Google video to dvd converters.

I am trying to save a DVD + R disc to my lap top so that I can make more copies of it for Family. I get an error message when I try and do it. ''Your recording device does not support writing to DVD media....

The error message implies that your DVD is not capable of writing DVD's, particularly DVD+R disks. Recheck the spec's on the drive; it might write to DVD-R disks, or perhaps it only burns CD's and not DVD's at all.

Error message with software ?

That is usually caused by cheap media. Try a better brand of blank DVD's.
