I have been able to use 8x speed DVD's on this ridiculous machine. Anything else gives me error messages. However, it will not let me "Finalize" anything so none of the DVD's that I recorded can be played anywhere else. I have so many discs where I have purchased hoping they would work that I could open my own disc store. They are all 1-16x. Oh yeah, all are Maxell since it specified the few brands that would work. I wish I had never bought this pain in the ****.

I posted this in another person's question but it is probably relevant to you as well. This model (which I own myself) is outdated and needs a firmware upgrade. You might get lucky and get one from their tech support. However, I heard they stopped shipping them nearly a year ago. As it stands your recorder can only use DVD-R that records at 4x (or lower) and DVD-RW that records at 1x. Any other media is useless. Since 4x media is outdated, it may be hard to find at a major retailer. Let me know if you have any luck fixing this or finding working DVDs as I have had the same issue myself. I simply cannot find 4x DVDs in the store.
