The recorder should be formatted only by using the internal FORMAT function found in the Menu. Formatting using the computer may corrupt system files needed to run the recorder and may delete the Voice Guide Data and Audible system files, so computer formatting is not recommended. When the recorder is connected to a computer, individual files can be deleted using My Computer without negative effects.after you format the unit this is how needs t

change your recording settings on your recorder timer. You have to choose the quality of the copy and the recording time in your set up before you start recording. mine varies from half hour to 6 hours.
First, try to refinalize the disc if it failed the first time by going into the edit menu. Sometimes finalization just fails the first time.
If you are recording on 2-hr mode, and the length of your recording is an 1hr 50 min or more, there will not be enough space left on the disc to finalize. Going forward, your best solution would be to record in 3- or 4-hour mode for every 2 hrs worth of recording (6-hour mode for 3-5 hours of recording, etc.). Just to quickly decipher recording modes: 2-hr mode (sometimes called SP Mode, depending on DVD player) will record about 2 hours worth of material on a standard blank DVD (but some extra space would be required for finalization); 4-hour mode would record 4 hours worth of material on a standard DVD; 6-hour mode would record 6 hours, etc.
As far as salvaging the recordings you have already made - load the burned, yet unfinalized DVD's into your computer. Copy the files onto the desktop or some easy-to-find location on your computer. Then use a program, free or otherwise (I personally reccomend Nero or Roxio), to re-burn the discs. The newer version of Nero automatically finalizes the disc, but some software requires you to select an option that allows you to "close disc" or "finalize" the disc. (In computer lingo, "closing" means the same thing as "finalizing").
It could be corrupted file. Try downloading one file at a time through My Computer. After you have exhausted all possibilities, format the recorder through the recorder (not the computer) and your memory should be fine
Daylight savings time change a few months ago messed up the timer recording schedule - you must now fix it. Daylight savings time changes will always mess up this recorder. You must reset your recording schedule.
This is correct. I suspect you can also see "SP" lit up next to it. You should also see "XP" above it (dimmed) and "LP", "EP" below it (also dimmed). Standard Play (SP) fits 2 hours on a single layer disk. XP only records 1 hour but at a higher quality. LP gives you 4 hours and depending on the setting EP will give you 6 or 8 hours on the same disk. The manual will tell you how to select the quality setting
TiVO also plans for other upcoming shows in total recording time. So if you 12 hours recorded, and another 20 or so hours scheduled in upcoming all as don't delete, then it won't allow additonal shows manually
