Question about Symphonic SR90VE

2 Answers

Recording error Tried recording to a disc, everything went well, but when it started writing to the disc, it said cannot record to this disc error code E17. What is that?

  • skessdtrek May 26, 2009

    The codes aren't in the manual. I talked to customer service last time, and E4 was that the lense needed cleaning. At that time, she told me I could find the codes online. This time, I tried to find the codes, but the only thing I found was this forum. The disc is a Verbatim 8x DVD-R. I recorded about 4 seconds of something on it, and it worked. I then deleted that, so I could record a show. I hit record, it said it was recording. When it started writing was when I got the error. As for the recording device it's the SR90VE, which is where this is posted. I'm not sure what other info would be meant by recording device.

The Symphonic SR90VE can only record DVD-R discs up to 4x or DVD-RW discs up to 2x.

TheSR90VE CANNOT record DVD-R discs above 4x; DVD-RW discs above 2x; DVD+R discs; DVD+RW discs; CD's; or any discs which are copyright-protected.

Most DVD-R discs on the market today are 16x, and most DVD-RW discs are 8x - neither of which will work in the SR90VE. You have two options for this problem:

Option #1 - Contact Funai Corporation at 1-800-242-7158 for a "Firmware Upgrade CD". This will make the unit compatible with DVD-R discs up to 8x and DVD-RW discs up to 4x. Once you are on the phone with Funai, they will ask you to hit some buttons on the remote to access the firmware version currently installed on the machine so that they can send you the proper upgrade CD. The CD will set you back about $23.00 (includes cost of CD plus shipping). You will still need to locate and purchase DVD-R 8x discs or DVD-RW 4x discs. Try looking at Amazon.com, Disc4Less.com or eBay.com.

Option #2 - Skip upgrading the firmware and try to find a retailer who still has some old DVD-R 4x discs or DVD-RW 2x discs in stock. (Do a Google search for "DVD-R 4x Discs" or "DVD-RW 2x Discs"). Again, your best options will probably be at Amazon.com, Disc4Less.com or perhaps ebay.com.

Either way, do NOT purchase Dual-Layer discs or Blu-Ray discs as neither of these are compatible with this recorder - they must be standard single-layer 4.7gb discs.

All-in-all, this is a high-quality VCR/DVD Recorder, but the technology of the recording media has advanced beyond the capabilities of the machine. Although the older DVD media is still available, you might just consider upgrading to a newer DVD/VCR which utilizes the newer DVD technologies.

I certainly hope this helps - and good luck!

    So sorry for the inconviniencies you are experiencing.



    We had checked and sourced for the error codes on the internet and that was why we advised you check your manual.



    Have tried getting a CD cleaner? Although such error codes would definitely not be as a result of dirts on your CD lens.



    Lastly if the CD you intended to use was a Verbatim 8x "DVD-R", it cannot be reused after a writing session has been done on it..



    Try using a DVD-Rewriteable disk and let us know if the same error occurs

DURNING FINALIZE MODE IT STOPPED WITH1:30 LEFT--- THEN I TURNED IT OFF AND TRIED AGAIN TO FINALIZE AND IT CAME UP WITH A READING OF---REPAIR--


That's a normal response to an interrupted Finalization.

http://www.retrevo.com/support/HHB-CDR830-CD-Players-manual/id/3875ci874/t/2/

The recorder was switched off/unplugged after recording without ejecting the disc. The recorder could not write essential recording information onto the disc.

While REPAIR is displayed, the recorder automatically examines the recorded area of the disc and updates the track numbers and recording time data. This process takes about 40 minutes for a fully recorded disc. Finalization or further recording is possible once the REPAIR message disappears.

Computer does not recognize it as a CD RW drive


When you try to write data to an optical disc, you may experience any of the following symptoms:

* You receive various disc write error messages.
* You experience issues with the drive and the built-in recording feature of Windows XP.
* You experience issues with third-party programs that you use to write data to the disc.
* You cannot read the disc in all versions of Windows.
* You cannot read the disc, or some files on the disk, by using an MP3 player.
* When you add files or folders to a disc that already contains data, some files are lost.
* Recording files to the disc is inconsistent.
* The disc recording operation is consistently unsuccessful.

TROUBLESHOOTING

Troubleshooting specific errors
If you experience one of the following errors, follow the appropriate steps to resolve the error.

* There is no disc in the drive. Please insert a writable CD into drive.
This error can occur if the CD-R drive or CD-RW drive is not recognized as a recordable device. This error can also occur if the device driver has been corrupted. To resolve this issue, see Method 3 in the "General troubleshooting" section and Method 1 in the "Advanced troubleshooting" section.

* Drive not accessible, incorrect function
This error message typically occurs when you try to write to a CD-R or a CD-RW, and the Windows XP built-in disc recording feature does not recognize the CD drive as a recordable drive. This error message may also occur if specific third-party programs are installed. For more information about how to troubleshoot this error,

when you access the CD-ROM drive, the DVD-ROM drive, or the CD-RW drive
* Error Deleting File or Folder.
Cannot delete file name. Files on this CD-ROM drive are read-only. You cannot copy or move files over to this CD-ROM drive.

This error message can occur because individual files cannot be deleted from the CD-RW. You cannot use the CD disc recording feature of Windows XP for random-access storage while you are writing to disc.

To set the service to Automatic, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, click Run, type services.msc /s, and then click OK.
2. Double-click IMAPI CD-Burning COM Service.
3. Under Service Status, click Start.
4. Try to write data to a CD.

CD Burning gets stuck


Try this: : Decreasing the burn speed If the drive is not recognizing the disc at all, skip to Step 4. Decrease the CD writer's burn speed by half to increase the likelihood of a successful burn. Decreasing the burn speed is a quick, easy way of increasing successful disc burning sessions, at the expense of taking more time to create a disc. The following steps are for Windows XP only. For Windows 98 and Me, decrease the write speed from within the software that you are using to write discs (RecordNow, Easy CD Creator)
  1. Click Start , and then My Computer .
  2. Right-click the drive icon, and select Properties .
  3. Select the Recording tab and reduce the Current Write Speed by half (for example, from 16x to 8x).
  4. Click OK and close the My Computer window. Try burning a CD. If the drive fails to create the CD, go to the next step.
Step 4: Setting up disc recording in Windows XP If the computer does not have Windows XP, skip to Step 6. If you are using Windows XP, use the following steps to ensure that native burning is enabled:
  1. Place a blank disc into the drive. NOTE: If the error <drive letter> is not accessible. Incorrect function. " opens, close it and continue using these steps to correct this problem.
  2. Click Start , and then My Computer .
  3. Right-click the writable drive icon, and select Properties .
  4. If a Recording tab is shown, select the Recording tab, select Enable CD recording on this drive , and then click OK . Try burning a disc again. Continue to the next Step if you are unable to burn a disc. If a recording tab is not shown, continue using these steps. Figure 2: Enable CD recording on this drive c00368150.gif
  5. Look for a Recording tab: If the Recording tab is not shown, Windows XP has not detected the drive as a recordable device. Use the following sub steps to enable the Recording tab:
    1. Click Start , Run , and type regedit in the Open field.
    2. Backup the registry: Select My Computer from the list, click File , Export , type a name that you will remember, and click Save .
    3. Click OK , and browse to the following registry key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\CD Burning\Drives
    4. Click the Volume key that matches the CD/DVD drive that is capable of writing discs. If only one drive is installed, one volume key is listed. If you have more than one drive, examine the data values (by double-clicking them in the right pane) to find the correct drive.
    5. With the volume key selected in the left pane, double-click the Drive Type value in the right-pane. Figure 3: Drive Type registry value (CDRW) c01367502.jpg
    6. Type the number 1 in the Value Data field if the drive is capable of recording to CDRW discs (including CD-R discs). Type a 2 if the drive cannot write to CDRW discs but can burn CD-R discs. NOTE: A value of 3 indicates that the drive is only capable of reading discs. Changing this value to a 1 or 2 enables Windows to view the drive as a recordable drive.
    7. Click OK , and close Registry Editor.

Recording Error "Can not record on this disk/E4 54037380


I had that exact same problem. I would record a bunch of dvds with no problems for months and then some and one day it doesn't work. Only this showed up E4 EA03738B. However I've found the solution. Instead of going out and returning the recorder or buying new dvds just purchase a Laser Lense Cleaner. It's a dvd cleaner. Works like a charm.
