Recording Error -- E7

Got a EWR10D4 R/RW DVD - Bought Maxell DVD-RW 4.7GB disc. The blank disc will load but will not initialize. I get the same E7 Recording error every time on every disc and there are 15 in the pack. I would like to know what to do to get this to move on and to work as it should. Never recorded on this before so very frustrated.

When I bought my emerson ewr10d4 about 2-3 years ago, the machine only recorded on disks that were rated at 2x or 4x speed. And it didn't accept off-brand disks, it only liked the major brands like Maxell, TDK, Memorex, Sony. I learned this quirk the hard way. Eventually, when I called the 1-800 number, they sent me a disk to upgrade the recorder to 8x speed (and it was very simple to do - basically just pop it in). Helped a lot, although this year most disks in stores are 16x speed, and as of a couple months ago (November 2008) emerson didn't have a newer up-to-date upgrade available. But if you didn't do the 8x upgrade yet, call them and start there. It's a small improvement, but an improvement nonetheless. By the way, if anyone wants to buy some lesser-known chinese and japanese-brand disks, I may be able to help!

I have been working the issue of "recording error" for a couple of months now and have at least one BIG reason for this message. The emerson ewr10d4 can not write to any disks that have a variable write speed. I am not sure if the word variable is the proper term but if the disks you buy say "up to X or 1 thru X or 1-X, I am told by emerson support that they will probably NOT work. I can attest to this as I have many different brands of dvd-r disks that have failed at my expense. I do not have a solution yet because that involves finding a vendor that still has available the fixed speed disks. I am not sure that the word fixed speed is the correct term as I have asked for that type of disk and as a result have the above mentioned supply of variable dvd-r disks... What is needed is a part number and vendor of a disk that definitely works. It is important to note that the disks themselves may not show variable speed and it may only show on the packaging. Also, ordering disks on the internet show write speed of 8X, but when you get them they are 1-8X or up to 8X. I have tried to get emerson technical support to commit to how they tested their upgrade and what media they used to record, but no luck... I believe that a TDK DVD-R47DCB that is an 8X speed was successful the first time I tried to record to my unit , but I can no longer find this disk to prove it. If anyone still has a unit that is recording ok and has a disk part number to recommend, I would be more than happy to try it and let you know the results. These do not have to be -r 8X, as I am also looking to find -rw 4X disks that work.. good luck

I'm unable to find DVD discs that will record in my machine. I was using Maxell DVD+RW 4x but am not able to find them. If it says "up to 4x" it will not work. If I buy Memorex 4x, they won't work. I saved...


I have found that the DVD recorder in this unit will not recognize a DVR+R disc greater than 8X speed. Therfore 16X discs are not an option. Like you already know, it likes DVD+RW 45X speed discs but it is selective. I have been using Maxell DVD+RW 4x and have found that Verbatim DVD+RW 4X and Sony DVD+RW 4X work just as well.

Disc error message when load DVD


Are you loading to play or to record?
Commercial DVDs should play.
DVDs for recording may not be recognized by your drive. First make sure that the disc is blank. You must insert a blank disc of the proper format: DVD-R or RW, DVD+R or RW. Even with the proper format, some brands may not behave the same way as other brands.

Formating problem


Are you using dvd-rw(+) or dvd-rw(-). Have you tried updating the firmware? http://www.emersonaudiovideo.com/pdf/om/EWR10D4.pdf Minus (-R/-RW) and Plus (+R/+RW) The formats endorsed by the DVD Forum (www.dvdforum.org) have a hyphen in their names and are verbalized as "DVD Minus R" or "DVD Dash R" (DVD-R) and "DVD Minus RW" or "DVD Dash RW" (DVD-RW). The competing formats from the DVD+RW Alliance (www.dvdrw.com) use a plus sign: "DVD Plus R" (DVD+R) and "DVD Plus RW" (DVD+RW). Starting in 2002, drives that supported both Minus and Plus formats were introduced. Make sure you are using the proper dvd disc. Let me know what happens. Good Luck, Tim
