Yes - you're trying to initialise a +R DL.

Two problems
1. The DC210 only takes - format DVDs

2. You only need to initialise DVD-RW discs (see page 57 of the manual)

By initialising the DVD+R you have written to it once. having done that, you cannot write anything else to that disc. I find it easier to use DVD-RWs so that I can re-use them.

Good Luck.

My Verbatim DVD +R DL disc burned on my NEC 2510A DVD-RW will not play in a desktop DVD player but will play the computer it was burned on. The computer is running Windows 7.


It;s possible that you may have left the disc open or re-writable. Check this first.
The settings will be located in the software you used to burn the disc. Easiest would be to start a new burn session and read the available settings throughout the window prompts. It may also be located in advanced settings, if you don't find it this way.

What kind of blank DVDs do I use to copy an old VHS video tape to the DVD? I have the Sony RDR-VX530. When I put a DVD in, I get an Error message saying that I have the wrong DVD.


According to page 30 of the operation manual, the following information may help;

DISCS THAT CAN BE USED IN THIS RECORDER:

4x-speed or slower DVD+RWs
2x-speed or slower DVD-RWs (version 1.1, 1.1 with CPRM) (Content Protection for Recordable Media)
4x-speed or slower DVD-RWs (version 1.2, 1.2 with CPRM)
16x-speed or slower DVD+Rs
16x-speed or slower DVD-Rs (version 2.0, 2.0 with CPRM, version 2.1, 2.1 with CPRM)
2.4x-speed DVD+R DL (dual layer) discs
(when using DVD+R DL discs, see the instructions supplied with them prior to use)
4x-speed or slower DVD-R DL (dual layer) discs

DISCS THAT CANNOT BE RECORDED ON:

DVD-RWs (version 1.0)
DVD+RWs that are not 2.4x-speed compatible
8 cm discs (mini-DVDs)

Hopefully that provides some insight to your question.

HP dvd640e not recognizing DVD+R DL


6/25/9:  While this external HP DVD640e burner was listed as a NEW drive - "new" meant never used. A check with HP techs told me the unit was a 2005 factory closeout and the dual layer disc required for it is a 2.4 speed disc. I bought a 2.4 speed DL disc and it works perfect in it.  As far as seeing a CD when a DVD was installed is presumed also the fault of having the wrong speed disc in it (that lot of Memorex DL discs I am also having trouble with elsewhere too). Double-checking my profiler, it does give speed as 2.4x as the burner's profile. Alas, the problem was my newness to the DVD technology. A slap to the forehead and move on.

Check IDE cable connection. You might need a new IDE cable. I had the same problem, until I did the aformentioned. Hope this helps.
