Emerson EWR20V4 -can't format discs for recording

I believe that I was given the wrong remote. My remote says NB001. This probably would be ok, but when I press SETUP, I can't choose the DISC option. (This means that I can't format the disc, which results in my inability to record. This has been right from the time the product was purchased. How can this problem be solved?

Mine says NB108. You may have the correct remote. make sure after you push setup that you use the lower set of arrows, not the ones beside the play/stop buttons. this should allow you to move over and push right arrow, moving you over the disk options allowing you to format and other options. i can't tell you how many times i've pushed the wrong arrow and thought something was the matter. additionally, you may only be allowed to use up to 8x recording speed disks. i've had mine awhile, and have had a service pack that allowed me to go from 4x speed to 8x speed. there is no service pac to allow you go higher on the dvd-r. i believe the highest you can use on the dvd-rw is 2x.
hope this helps

EWR20V4 How do I finalize a disc after it's recorded ?


For the EWR20V4, press Setup on the remote then select the Disc menu (with the left/right arrows) and press enter. Select Finalize (using the up/down arrows) and press enter. A confirmation window will pop up, select Yes (left/right arrows) and press enter. Note: finalization takes some space on the DVD so leave room after recording to the disc. The step will take a few minutes. Finalization is permanent except for -RW discs (rewritable) and can only be undone with same unit that finalized the dvd-rw.

The DVD recorder was made by Funai Corp for Emerson. The manual for the unit can be found here: http://www.funai-corp.com/support/manuals.aspx . I found searching for products starting EWR gave several similar models. The direct link is http://www.funai-corp.com/6pdf/om/EWR20V4.pdf .

I hope this helps.

While it is true that not all dvd players will play,record, or even acknowledge some media I don't think you need a firmware.4X -16X is the max . write speed of the DVD disc. It should be OK with slower speed machines.What did you use before? Good Luck.

Emerson DVD recorder EWR20V4 My DVD Recorder will not record on DVD-r or DVD-rw disc of any brand.Displays can not record on this disc. Shows E24 At the bottom of diplay.


The problem is likely that you are using 8x/2x media. Though the booklet does not say it, the burner does not support anything above 4x for DVD-R and 1x for DVD-RW. Calling their tech support can (possibly) get an update for this problem. Otherwise, the burner cannot use anything but outdated media.
