    I went onto the Toshiba web site and found out there is a problem with the model D-VR610 thus it will not record a digital over-the-air broadcast program because it determines the program to be copy protected. I have tried to record using many brands of DVD media such as Maxwell, Sony, JVC, Memorex +R, -R, and in each case I get the error code E4 54039000. The only DVD disk that seems to work is the HP DVD-R 8X, of which I'm having trouble finding in stores. I plan on calling Toshiba to find out when they will be providing the firmware to upgrade the recorder to correct the problem. I hope I'm on the right track.

    push the setup button. goto general setting. goto recording. goto dubbing mode. checkmark VCR-DVD, if that is how you are recording. Back out of the setup and put your VCR to the point that you want to begin recording. Use a Blank disc, or one with enough space to complete your recording. At the bottom of the remote, there is a red button marked "dubbing". push it, and push stop at the end of the recording.

When playing commercial DVD's, my DR-MV150B starts to stall. It stops with the picture on the televsion screen, but can't see the rest of the movie. Any thoughts? The disc does eject.


Try cleaning the laser with a bud, if not it's either the spindle motor or laser assembly,
