Re: Recording Problems!

You may try a different style DVD disc. Are you using (+), (-), or (RW) the DVD makes a difference. Here is the manual for your product. Check pages 9 and 10. These pages tell you the type of DVD disc to use, and what speed they can be used. Let me know what happens. Good Luck, Tim

Hi, my Sony LBT-ZX10D HI FI system does not play the MP3 DVD/CD burned from my computer, software used to make MP3 DVD/CD is Nero 10. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Make sure that you select the "finalize" option when recording disks on a computer that will be played on home, auto or portable stereo equipment. The finalizing step is not required if it will only be played on a computer.

Burn dvd from vhs

i'm assuming you have a vcr to play your vhs tapes, just plug your audio/video cord from your vcr(out), plug into the audio/video vc10(in), start playing vcr and press rec botton whenever you want to start to record. make sure you can only use dvd+r. choose the quality for the length of time, at the end press 'function' to finalize the disc, then you are done.

Sony RDR-HX710

Check whether the discs you are using are compatible with the machine. I've just had the same problem using 8x DVD+R DL (Double Layer) discs, and after checking the users manual found that the machine only supports 2.4x DVD+R DL. I am now trying to find out if there is some sort of firmware upgrade available.

Pause/video freeze between shots

If the disc is an RW disc with previously written data on it, you'll be asked to confirm whether or not it can be overwritten.after erasing pls use it and try it ,
if you are using fresh blanck Sony DVD-R disk, a Verbatim DVD-R disk and a Maxell DVD-RW disk (all 4.7GB single-sided). no proble but if there is maxell i cant say anything if ther is carry on this problem is not repairable bcoz One of the common problems with HDD recording systems is that they can sometimes (but not always) produce a slight pause at the end of a clip prior to the start of a new clip.
just keep it up.

CD Burner stops in middle of burning

Hi KayGo, People hate going over the basics but gotta ask: -Have you tried cleaning your read/write heads using a commercial cleaner? -Do you have any problems reading CDs? -What Brand of CDs are you using? If you're using the cheapies you should try a few quality brands such as HP or Fugi. -Have you checked the drives manufacturers specifications for blank disks? -What recording speed are you using? Try setting it lower and see if that has any effect. -How much reading and writing have you done with this drive? They do wear out and CD only R/W drives have a history of not lasting long. -Have you tried running a diagnostic on your drive? Here is a link to the Sony CD/DVD diagnostic tool. Meant for Sony drives but I have used this successfully on other drives - Let us know if you need any other assistance and don't forget to rate the posting.
