Question about Dual Presidian DVD Recorder
This issue occurs with both DVD-R and DVD+R. I put a blank DVD disc in. It takes a couple of minutes to read and then it says that it is preparing the disc. It starts at 25% and ejects the disc when it gets to about 27 or 28%.I have been using DVD-R for a while because I could get it to work most of the time after trying several times. I had started getting invalid disc messages for the DVD+R discs a while ago and stopped using them. They were Verbatims. I have tried a number of brands with the DVD-Rs. I was using Staples Discs for quite a while as they were working fine. Another issue I have been having with the Presidian PDR-3222 is the disc door does not open when I push the button or use the remote. I have to manually assist it and this is getting harder to do too. It has no problem opening when it is rejecting a DVD.

Have had the same problem with my Presidian3222 for the last year, if I recorded something it would come back as invalid disc or blank disc or would not close disc out right, got so damn mad almost took a hammer to it last night, unplugged it like clicky said, did no good, thought cable co may have been sending single to screw up recording, but today took camcorder and tried to record something, same thing which seemed to let the cable co off the hook.
the following seemed to have fixed the problem, first open the player then unplug it, close the drawer 1/2 way, then I took compressed air and blew inside the player to clean the laser after that I have been able to record 3 movies and close the disc properly and finalize the disc properly, I even had 50 new disc made by sony that recorded kept saying were invalid, reads them fine now, I hope this helps everyone, because I was on the edge of putting this thing in the trash last night.

I don't know if this will help, but according to the operator's manual I have, on page 64, the only place it mentions "Full" or "Quick" Preparation, is when using a DVD-RW disc. Apparently, with this type of disc, you must use the Full or Quick preparation INSTEAD of Finalizing after you're thru recording onto the disc.
With the DVD-R and DVD+R, all you can do is "Finalize"; With the DVD+RW, if I'm reading this correctly, NIETHER Finalization OR Preparation is required.
But with the DVD-RW, apparently ALL you can do is a "FULL" or "QUICK Preparation.
If you're only getting "Erase or "Finalize" WITH the DVD-RW, then it appears there may be a problem with the machine.
Or, if you're attempting the "FULL or QUICK" Preparation with any disc OTHER than the DVD-RW, all you should get is "erase" or Finalize", since the QUICK or FULL Preparation is not done with discs other than DVD-RWs.
Hope this helps. I'm certainly not an expert on these things....I'm a "Vinyl" type guy.

Locate the CD-ROM drive door on your computer. The location of the drive depends on the computer you have. You will see a small rectangular button on the door.
Press the button and the drive door should slightly open. Lightly pull the door open and insert the blank DVD-RW disc into the drive. Close the drive door and wait for the computer to detect the disc, which will trigger an "Auto Play" screen to flash on the desktop's taskbar. The screen will prompt you to choose an action you'd like to perform for the disc.
Click "Burn Files to Disc: Using Windows." This link will redirect you to your Windows Explorer disc burning application. You will be prompted to enter a title for the disc.
Enter the title of your choice in the form and click "Next." The last screen will ask if you'd like to continue with the formatting; click "Yes" to continue. The "Elapsed Time" screen will appear indicating how long the process will take. When the process is complete, another screen will automatically appear indicating the formatting process is complete.
Click "OK" to continue. Your Windows Explorer panel will appear. In the upper-left corner of the panel, you will see a horizontal menu bar with different options for the disc. Now your disc is formatted and you can begin burning files to your disc.
