Question about Panasonic DMR-ES10 DVD Recorder
In each case they are Sony DVD - . Some finalize and play OK but some will not. The machine also makes a grinding noise during the attempt to finaliise. So far, this has only happened when I try to transfer from one particular VHS cassette. Having not finalised, it then displays "the disc is only available for playback. It will also not erase any items (thus behaving as if it has finalized the idsc - but it has not)
Your help would be appreciated
Turns out the rubber disc grip on the spindle simply needs to be cleaned (using an alcohol wipe). This is the part that holds the disc firm while it's spinning...the noise and failed disc reads comes from this rubber getting dirty and allowing the disc to slip. Total time to fix including disassembly was less than 15 minutes!

You can record and finalize DVD+Rs one time. After you fill a DVD+R or
complete all the recordings you want on a single DVD+R, finalize it.
Otherwise, the DVD+R will play only on this Recorder.To play the Disc on
other DVD Players, you must finalize it first.
Once you finalize a DVD+R, you cannot record on it anymore or make
editing changes.Therefore, make sure the Disc is as you want it before you
Press SYSTEM MENU. Press
; to select in the top left
corner of the menu bar at the top of the TV screen.
9 repeatedly to select in the second screen,
9 repeatedly to select Finalize disc. Finalize disc
appears in the menu only when an unfinalized DVD+R is in the
"Finalizing" will appear in the menu.The process may
take a few minutes.
When finalization is complete, the Index
picture screen will reappear.
You cannot unfinalize a DVD+R, and you cannot record or
edit the DVD+R after you finalize it.
A DVD+R will play on other DVD Players only after the
Disc is finalized.
