If it recommends those discs ok but you need to format discs every time you use a new disc but they must be blank cos if you format when there is data on them you will lose your data hope this works

DMR-EZ47V cannot format the discs I have. Is this the discs or the device. I bought it 2nd hand recently


What type of disc are you trying to format? DVD-Rs that have already been finalised will be read-only. You don't need to format DVD-RAMs, just erase what's on them and re-record.

What disc should be used? DVD-R or DVD+R ?


Use DVD+R,

According to the claims of the DVD Alliance, using a DVD+R (or DVD+RW) recorder will provide the following advantages over a DVD-R recorder:
  1. Instantly eject without having to wait for finalized formatting.
  2. Ability to record one DVD disc partially on PC and partially on television.
  3. Background formatting: while the disc is being formatted, you can simultaneously record on already-formatted portions of the same disc.
  4. Enhanced ability to edit filenames, movie and song titles, and playlists.
  5. 100% compatibility with all other DVD players, while still enjoying these extra recording features.

Using a DVD-RW to create a video and audio format to play on my Durabrand Model 1002 what formats and bitrate do you recommend for viewing on my standard color tv?


You cannot use a DVD-RW disc on a Durabrand DVD player. It is not a compatible disc format. DVD-R discs that have been finalised (as well as shop-bought legal copies) are recommended for this player. As for video and audio bitrates, check out other forums on video to DVD converting and creation for more information. It is down to trial and error.

This model DVD player can play the following disc formats:

DVD-Video (Region 1 or relevant region coded store-bought movies)

DVD-R (must be finalised on appropriate recording equipment for compatible playback)

CD-R (for jpeg/mp3 media files)

CD-RW (for audio such as mp3)

music CD (such as store-bought albums)

This player will NOT accept DVD-RW/+RW discs, or Blu-Ray.

I hope this helps you a tiny bit.

Cannot format an empty dvd recordable disc


Only DVD-RW discs can be formatted. If it is a DVD-R and you have already tried recording on it, the disc will be unusable. If the disk is not formatting, it might be defective. Try using another disk in the drive to make sure it isn't your DVD drive itseld that is broken.

The dvd wont initialize blanc discs so that i can record with it.i have used different disc as well


Do you mean it won't format/initialize the disc? Alternative possible problem, when you put in a disc, does it not recognize that a blank disc is in the unit? Only DVD-RAM discs need formatting. DVD-RW discs need to be initialized. DVD-R disc do not need either formatting or initializing. (This unit does not write to DVD+R or DVD+RW discs.)

In the case of DVD-RW discs that can't be initialized. Check if this has already been done (or if you need to unfinalize the disc).

If the new disc is not being recognized as a blank disc, the recorder may not be recognizing the disc (dirt, scratches or manufacturing issue) or the recorder is not focusing on the disc properly. In the first case, clean the disc or try a different type of disc (Samsung claims that their discs will be most compatible). In the second case, the unit may need service.

I hope this helps.

I have a Toshiba DVR620ku DVD/VCR combo. I have the Format Mode properly set to "Video mode." I put in a new, unformatted DVD-R, and the player should format the DVD, but it doesn't. I click...


My brother had the same problem. Toshiba tech support said the disc was already formatted, so the DVD MENU option would not be available. He went straight to dubbing and recorded to the disc. After recording, the DVD MENU option was then available. He thought the disc was not formatted since it was straight out of the package and he always had to format other new discs. Perhaps your disc was actually already formatted?

Says blank DVD-RW is not formatted, then formats -- then error


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.
