I had to download the latest firmware (rev. VS0M) for Lite-On DVDRW SOHW-832S. This fixed the problem.

if your noterbook comes with a dvd-rw drive, then you can format dvd-rw discs by opening your burning program like Nero and selecting the "erase disc" option

As far as i know thats impossible. Your optical diskdrive is made just for those speeds that you have on it. You cant change the manufacture settings and speed it upp, or make it to an dual layer disk.
Buy a new one whit the needs that u want and replace the old one. Its easy done and its not that expensive.

Good luck to you

My Magnavox Digital Disc Recorder & Video Cassette Recorder will not play DVD-RW discs. How can I solve this problem or get a replacement unit.

It claims to play -RWs finalized in DVD-VIDEO format, not VR. If a disc is recorded/finalized on a different recorder, not all players can play it. This is the price we pay for the convenience of the digital system.

I have a Magnavox MRV700VR. I can record on a DVDR, but when I try to record on a DVDRW it tells me "disc error". Why?

It will be either that you have not formatted the disc or that you are using the wrong type of disc. You will need a DVD+RW on a + machine or DVD-RW on a - machine. Most recorders will playback the other type but not record on it.

    MiniDVD+RW can not be recognized

    The Canon DC210 will only work with 'minus' format DVDs. It will not work with 'plus' format DVDs.

    When you use DVD-RW discs you will be able to initialise the discs.

    Don't forget to rate this solution once you've tried it.
