Question about DVD & Blu-Ray Players
The recorder will not recognize a disc when inserted for recording. It indicates that a new disc has been inserted and that it needs to be formatted but then it says the disc is damaged and unuseable. I have tried a variety of brand names of DVD+R and DVD+R/W and I get the same results. I can take the same disc and record on it with my DVD writer on my computer. The player plays CD and DVD ok but will not record. - Solution?
i do not have this problem however recently my DVD simply would not turn on, i unplugged it for a few minutes and it now works. my complaint right now is that one of the discs is now coming up as unformatted and when i try to format it, it cannot be done. the other 2 discs are fine (as this one once was also!)

This just worked for me. Don't know how long it will last though. I found it on this webpage
To do a reset:
On the remote control press the SETUP button,
Press the right key on the remote 3 times,
The Preference page will show up,
Press the down arrow five time to highlight
"default", hit right arrow to highlight "reset"
Press enter to reset. Turn off/on machine, etc.

my suggestion from reading other forums is that these players sometimes have problems finalizing the disc.. you could try making a copy of the disc in a computer to see if this fixes the promlem or maybe media these use dvd+r and has a lot of compatibility issues with dvd players.

Had mine into the repair shop. Junk it, processor is toast. Not worth the money to fix. The guy said he wouldn't even touch it.
