Sorry but your laser is going! +R disks need a slightly higher burn power. Eventually you will have the same fault for RW disks.

What is the difference between a DVD+RW and a DVD-RW.

It is the re-recordable version of the DVD-R. To use this type of media you will need to buy a DVD-RW recorder. The DVD-RW recorders usually record DVD-R, CD-R and CD-RW media, too. Similarly to what happens to DVD-R, DVD-RW disks can be played in newer commercial DVD players without any problems. Older commercial devices cannot recognize the media, refusing to play the disk. To play a DVD-RW disk, commercial players need the disk to be finished. After finishing the disk, you can only record new data in it by reformatting it, which makes you lose all the recorded data.


It is the re-recordable version of the DVD+R and everything that was said about the DVD+R is valid for the DVD+RW. Only the newest DVD players play movies recorded in disks using this format. There are recorders on the market that can record both DVD-RW disks and DVD+RW ones. These recorders are called DVD?┬▒RW. Similarly to the DVD-RW, the disk needs to be finished to be played in commercial DVD players, and to record new data in the disk after having finished it requires reformatting it, which makes all the data in it to be erased. DVD+RW recorders are usually capable of reading DVD-RW disks (but not of recording them) and vice-versa.

There you are.

Anything I have recorded onto DVD from TV wont play on any other machines. It will only play on this machine I recorded on. It is the same make and model mentioned here.

If you're not using DVD+RW blanks (VERBATIM work fine), then try them. DVD-RW blanks will not play on any machine but the one that recorded the disk (according to the manual.)

It wont record on 16xdvd+r discs? what is the properdisc

  • Media Type that the unit will play CD , DVD , CD-R , SVCD , CD-RW , DVD+R , DVD-R , DVD+RW , DVD-RW , DVD-ROM , Video CD
  • Media Format PAL , NTSC
  • Recordable Media DVD+R , DVD+RW only.. It will not record on the more expensive and compatible DVD-R, DVD-RW.
  • I recommend burning at a slower speed such as 2.4X, 4X or at most 8X.
  • I had similar issues resulting in many "coasters" for drinks burning at a faster rate even with my computer. Although some disks are designed to burn at a faster rate, software and components sometimes cannot keep up resulting in wasted money and time.
  • It may also be the media (manufacturer of disks). No matter which DVR or Burner you may have certain hardware schemes do not like certain media. It is a trial and error process. Just make sure the store has a return policy for the disks if they don't work. I have never had a problem returning disks to Staples that did not work.
I hope this helps and good luck.

Can't record DVD+RW and DVD+ Disks...PLUS

Firstly, you need to finalize the -R disk recorded by and in your unit before it will play back anywhere else.

Secondly, the DMR-ES10 does not support +RW, only -RW.

Finally, I have never heard of a +D. Do you mean +R? It is likely that you have a corrupt disk; change it.
