Question about Televison & Video
Toshiba DR430KU recorder won't record CPRM movies on a DVD-RW disk. The manual says this is possible with DVD-RW disks formatted in VR mode. I was initially able to do this with some TDK DVD-RW disks I had on hand when I bought the recorder. I am able to record these movies on my Tivos but cannot transfer them between Tivos or to the computer because of the CPRM. I read on the internet that all TDK & Maxell disks are supposed to be CPRM compatible. I bought new TDK disks, but get an error message trying to record. A search on major retailers (Amazon, Newegg) doesn't find any. How do I find out if a manufacturer's disks are CPRM compatible?

SOURCE: Won't format new DVD-RW disks
i did everyting today to fix this. bought new dvds, name brands different, tried finding codes, called the number. trust me. try this. clean it. thats All i did. cleaned it with a dvd cd cleaning disc, the one with two little brushes on it, nothing special, ran it until i heard the beep, popped my dvd in, they all worked. everyone, im still recording. i ran it about four times. now, if you tried to burn a dvd, and got the error, throw that dvd away. because i tried about ten dvds. after i fixed it, THOSE dvds were no longer usable. dont know why. hope this works.

I don't have a solution but share the same problem. However, I also have the problem with used discs. These were initialised and used to record programmes. They can still be used to play the recorded programmes - although sometimes several attempts are now needed for them to load. When the problem first arose after I bought some more discs, Verbatim discs were also recommended to me. I purchased some of these and could initialise most and have used some to make recordings. However, I am now unable to reuse any DVD-RW discs. If I try to delete recorded programmes I get an error. On reloading the disc the programmes are still there and can be played. But if I try to clear the disc by reformatting I mostly get an error and the disc becomes unusable. If I can reformat it without an error I get a system error if I try to make a recording. This is for discs that have been used without problems for at most a handful of recordings - or even the freshly initialised discs.
Recordings on DVD-R discs are fine (and can if required be finalised). RAM disc recordings are fine and can be played back in time-slip mode if required. It is only with DVD-RW disc that there are problems and this with older but little used discs as well as new (Verbatim) discs.
I therefore do not think it IS the discs which are causing the problem but a fault with the recorder. Since others are having the same experience it looks like an inherent problem of the machine which is occurring after a few years of use.
Perhaps there is someone with experience of repairing DVD recorders - or who have had this model repaired - who can throw some light on this. To purchase a new digital recorder would, for me, mean also purchasing a new digital TV because a digital only recorder would not be compatible with my set up so if the RB250-SB could be made to work a bit longer it would give me time to save up for a new system

It means that the disk in question doesn't support CPRM- (an encryption system for copy protection - embedded in the source signal that you try to record . CPRM recordings can only be made on DVD-RW discs in VR mode, and can only be played on CPRM-compatible players.

Even if you have the correct disk and the correct setting in the recorder, if the CPRM tag in the broadcasted program is set to deny all recording then your recorder will not record it. Sadly but it's just that simple.
