Won't record DVD+R

I record a movie using the same brand(Fugi DVD+R) works good. Then, next from the same package disks it says this disk is unrecordable like 10 out of 15 disks. Did I get a bad bunch of disks or recorder problems.

I have been working throug a stack of 25 Windata, the cheap ones. DVD +R/ They have been working 100%, every time. The only problem I have is when I leave machine to shut itself down because I am not there to stop it at end of movie.. The disk becomes so full that I cannot get to disk to finalize and it will never play on another machine. When I hit the Disk Edit on such an overcrammed disk, the drop down menu with Finalize at bottom does not come up Only the hand with the red crossout sign over it comes up..

My HDD/DVD recorder will not format discs.


You can format only RW disks. If you are using R (recordable only once) disks you don't need to format them, just burn directly the movies.

I get the disk dirty message when I try to play a DVD R disk that I just recorded with a Sony VRD-MC6 video converter. It states in the book that some players will not accept DVD R disks, is that what is...


IT MIGHT BE. BUT MOST OF THE NEWER PLAYERS WILL PLAY ALL TYPES OF DISKS. I WOULD FIRST TRY TO CHANGE YOU BRAND OF DVD R'S. I HAVE USED MEMOREX DVD+R FOR ALMOST 10 YEARS AND I HAVE ONLY HAD 3 BAD DISKS BUT I BURN ABOUT 4-8 MOVIES A WEEK. SO I COUNT MYSELF LUCKY. PLUS ANY ONE WHO BORROWS A MOVIE HAS NEVER COMPLAINED. HOPE THAT HELPS IF NOT SHOOT ME A RESPONSE AND I'LL GIVE YOU SOME MORE TIPS.

Dub VHS to DVD


I am not sure why the DVD recorder is stopping after 25 mins of recording. However, once a disk is finalized all the remaining space is unrecordable. That is why your computer is showing the disk as full. The same applies when finalizing a CD. As for the first problem, check to see what record speed you are using. XP is 1 hr, SP 2hr and so on. But stopping after 25 minutes is weird. Even if you use a quick record button, (aka OTR) the recording is usually done in 30 minute increments. Try it again. If it still is only recording for 25 minutes, you may want to contact the manufacture's customer service or tech support. Hope it helps.

Sylvania dvr90vf dvd recorder


Unfortunately without a firmware upgrade the only disks you can use are DVD-R or DVD-RW. The tricky part is that you can ONLY USE 2X speed. Per my conversation with Sylvania there is a firmware update that will allow you to use up to 8x disks, but they are charging $17.00 for it.

After formatting the disk, it reads that it is an invalid disk.


I have a Liteon LVW-1107. It is a very tempramental machine. It tends to prefer +R or +RW disks. Will record on -Rs but may fail with them.
On occasion when I insert a store bought DVD movie I will get an
invalid disk warning. The machine seems to get confused.

What I do is pull the power cord and let it set a few minutes.
Give it a little time to reset. Sometimes you have to do this a couple times. It has always worked for me. I hope it will work for you.

Good luck. This is not a top of the line machine.

Problem dubbing from VHS to DVD


Try different brands of disk, most dvd-r recorder are disk sensitive, buy only one disk per brand, find the brand compatible to your recorder by just inserting the disk and wait for confirmation that it is ready for recording session. I have tried around five brands, sony and maxell as well as verbatim are good dvd-r disk.
