It appears this is a common issue, and you will need to update your firmware.. Unfortunately, i cannot seem to navigate the Sanyo website to find your particular model.. Also Noted, The device does not seem to work well with Maxell Discs.. there are several posts all over the internet about this issue..
Look through your documentation to see if there is a support website listed, and check there for any possible firmware updates..
Sorry i could not be of more help.

Problem - You put the DVD recordable media in and it takes about 30 seconds before it identifies the disc and says Initialize Disc?
You click OK and it takes the full 2 minutes only to stick after 2 minutes and do very little but spin. Disc will not eject unless power is removed first.
Disc will read DVD's ok.
Solution - Clean the lens with a cotton bud and Isopropyl Alcohol very gently. Shine a flashlight onto the lens to see if the reflection is clean. If not the soft wood of a match stick with a small piece of clean silk can be used to rub the lens with as little pressure as possible.
The DVDR should read and the initialize, although it says will take 2 minutes, should jump to the end quickly and the DVDR+ sign appears in the corner.
(My problem first occurred after some painters were sanding in the house and the machine got full of dust, but the clean did not last long and it turned out there was a smudge on the lens which you could not see without the flashlight. Once it was removed the recorder was back to working order. if cleaning the lens does not solves then ,its necessary to get the lens replaced. this will help. thanks.please do rate the solution.thank you for using fixya.keep updated.
