My dvd player does not record on -r and -rw disc. I had gotten some disc that it works on but I just bought -rw's and they did not work. They are not reading the disc.

Did you provide the correct model above? The EWD2203 is a DVD player. It can only record to VHS tapes. If you recorded to the -r or -rw discs on another machine, did you finalize the disc? Finalization is needed to make discs playable in other devices. Also check if the disc needs cleaning.

If you are dealing with another DVD recorder, try another brand of disc. Often the manufacturing differences can affect how well the recorder will handle recording to the disc.

I wish that I could be of more help.

Finalize the disc

depends what type of disc-rw's won't highlight sometimes because they don't always need to be finalized to play-insert the disc if r in another brand and see if you can finalize-go to bb or circuit and ask them if you can stick it in display and see if it comes up-if never proably was done already-also try different dvd players

I had the same problem. What I did on my Hitachi DVDCam was to click the "Stop" button to clear all keystrokes. Then, click "Menu". The camera might say "Creating Thumbnails" for a minute but then it will stop and display a mock menu for your mini dvd. Then click "Menu" and the toolbar should pop up. With the arrow keys, scroll down. You should see a menu that says "Finalize DVD" click this. For a small dvd, it will take around 13 min. to finalize.

Finalizing the disk

Finalizing a disc is a software issue. When you start to burn a disc there's a check box that will say something like "Finalize Disc" or "Allow no further recording to this disc". Depends on the software. Personally, I use Nero.

Hope that helps...

Missing pieces

This is from Bassett's website.

Bassett recommends that all cribs manufactured prior to 1972 be replaced because improved safety features were instituted that year. If your crib was made in 1972 or after, replacement parts are available from Products America at 1-800-772-1041. If you are unsure when your Bassett crib was made, Bassett urges you to replace it.

I need help

I know I may be a couple weeks late however, I will still try to help. If you don't know at all how to do it then I would suggest reading the manual or PDF that came with the camera. The DVDCAM has a built in function that allows you to finalize a disk right in the menu options. If you knew that, and are pretty sure you are following directions, then I would suggest trying a different type of disk.( brand of disk) I've also heard of people having finalizing trouble with this camera due to a harware fault in the camera. That means you will have to get it replaced, hopefully under warrenty. Hope this gets you stated.

Hi!! My husband just sat down and finally figured this out,

You have to use disc navigation, then wait for the thumbnails to show up and then push menu and scroll down three times to the disc, and then choose finallize and then tell it yes. You do have to have it plugged into the a/c adapter tho in order to do this for some reason.

Hope this helps,

Have a Creative Day!!!
