Goto the system properties>Hardware>Device Manager>Disk Drives and double click on that hard disk name. Then goto the policies tab and mark the checkbox of "Enable right caching on the disk." If it is already selected then it means that there is a problem in your hard disk, either you purchase another hard disk or replace it or check it in another system.

DCR-HC26 will record but will not play


There are two solutions, one, buy a mini dv tape player. They are kind of expensive, but you will be able to get your information off your tapes. Second, buy a used, working mini dv camcorder on ebay and use it to get your information off your tapes. A five year old camcorder is not work fixing.

After reading the BIOS software, my Gateway CX200X gives the message: MBR error. what is this?


MBR stands for Master Boot Record. It is an essential piece of information written on the Hard Drive that allows the program to load. If the MBR is corrupted the computer boot process cannot proceed.
You have to repair it.
On old systems with a floppy drive you would get a Win98 boot disk on a floppy, boot the system using the A:drive (floppy) then use a DOS command to refresh the Master Boot Record.
If your system is using Windows XP tablet PC edition you might be able to use the installation disk to boot to the recovery console and use the command FIXBOOT or FIXMBR. You can also reinstall the Operating System.
I hope this answer gave you some starting point to investigate further. There are on the web some software vendors who sell system recuperation CDs. Some may be free other you have to buy.

RDR-VX560 have recorded about 250 programs, on DVD-R and DVD+RW discs. Recently I went back and made sure that all had been finalized. I then checked out their operation on both the recorder and my new...


I'm sorry that the discs are not being able to read using either Computer nor with the Recorder itself. Based on the information you have provided, it appears that the discs are corrupted. Please check whether other discs are playing fine with the Recorder and computer to make sure that the drives are fine. If Recorder and Computer playing fine other discs, we can confirm that the issue is with the discs itself.
Clean the discs using a soft cloth starting from center to straight toward edge.
Use any software recovery software to recover the data. I have provided a link where you can download one for free. Click here to download the data recovery software.
Clean the discs by following the below step.

Thus cleaning the disk should always be your first move. Run warm water over the damaged disk to remove dust. If there is stubborn dirt or grease on the disk, gently rub it with your finger while you are washing it, and use a gentle detergent or liquid soap (with the water) or rubbing alcohol (in place of water). Anytime you rub or wipe a CD or DVD, you should do so by starting at or near the center of the disk and rubbing straight outward toward the edge to prevent further scratching. Shake the water off and let the disk air-dry (do not dry it with a towel or cloth, and don't sun-dry it either).


Now play the discs directly on the computer and recorder. If the issue persists, try again using the recovery software.
I hope the information helpful, please let me know if you require any clarifications.

Thanks for understanding.

I have the Toshiba D-R410 it is several years old and I used it for quite a while making recordings in both DVD-R and DVD+R. And now a year and a half later I went out and bought a pack of both...


I believe you only need to format DVD RW disks. These are re-writeable and need to be pre-formatted before use. "R" disks can be extended with additional material before finalization, but existing material can't be written over. They are not formatted before use.

I'm trying to burn a song to a CD-R using a Boss BR 1180 but every time it completes, there's no song on the CD. I record, bounce, record on 9/10, then try to write to CD and it never works.


"it never works"... this is NOT enough information for us. You are not telling us how the CD is tested. If you are testing it in a boombox type player, that is not a test. First thing is to look at the bottom of the CD to see if you can detect written tracks... with right lighting you can tell if it has been burned. REMEMBER that CD's, unlike phonograph records, are written from the middle outward. Many consumer players have trouble playing CD's that are written but not "finalized". If you CAN see written area (compare to unburned CD) then likely the burning is taking place, and the problem is the format is either not complete or incompatible with your player. Try reading the disk in your computer. Also you might want to visit the forums for the Boss/Roland workstations at VSPLANET.com.

I got a new laptop with windows 7 and my new dazzle recorder wont do anything. it installed but now it wont show anything when i put the disk in. is it compatible or is it something else?


How old is your computer? It could be that your computer doesn't have enough specs to run it. I was looking into those and my computer didn't have enough to run it. My is about 4 years old.

Receiving error "incorrect disk c104" The DVD is brand new and other older DVDS work fine


My best advice here is ether the disk was not written for your region or it was nto written correctly if its a burned disk or it is dirty with scuffs or scratches ether way if other disk is running great then this is pointing at the disk your working with here, Simply try this in another player to see what is ruled out here.

Could be a bad sign of a laser solder bubbles not formed right if you know what I am talking about you will know what I mean.

I would like to try for the first time to record a DVD on my HP nx5000 Notebook. On a label enclosed with the blanks I have purchased I read: ?Use of this disc in incompatible recorders may lead to...


Hi there.
Yes of course you can use that disk to burn to, most recorders these days don't get damaged and can write to just about any disk which is on the market.
The message that comes with the blank disks is just a generic message which covers the disk manufacturer from liability, if the disk is incompatible then the recorder will not write to it, it will not damage the recorder.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Dirty Disk Problem with DVD+R Disks on SONY RDR-GX300?


I have used my Sony GX300 for a couple of years and love it. I prefer +R blanks. The only occasional problem is the media brand. It will not record Fuji 16X, but will record Fuji 4X, which are rare nowadays. I have used TDK 16X with success, but this week bought TDK "lightscribe" blanks, and the GX300 would not record with them.

Sony should provide an upgrade download for the GX300 but does not. On the internet I have been unable to find a list of suitable brands for this DVD recorder, so I have to take risks when shopping. Fortunately, all blanks can be used for my computer so my money is not really wasted.

It's October, 2009 and in Toronto there has been a shortage of DVD blanks for months. I've been told there will be lots available in December.

Philips dvdr3455h/37 recording issues


I was having the same problem if I used DVD+R blanks, but the programs would record fine if I used Memorex DVD+RW rewritables. Until today, that is - now it won't let me burn anything from the HDD to a disk!  My 3455H is about two years old.
Gotta say I'm quite disappointed with it, and would never consider another Philips product. :(
