Sounds like the laser has gone or the try is not fully loading the disc.

Trying to write to blank disk first time (Memorex CD-RW). Get message: Record failed: wrong format for re-write Spectroniq SDR-205 DVD Recorder

Some DVD recorders cannot write CD-RW - only DVD-RW (+ and -) as well as DVD-R (+ and -) (this depends on the brand/model). This unit probably does not support CD recording. Try using DVD-RW instead for this machine - see if it records that (do not finalise even if unit prompts you to with an on-screen message prior to ejecting disc).

There are DVD players and recorders which can play CD-RW (mp3, jpegs etc.) but I don't know of any which record this format (a PC CD/DVD-ROM drive can do this though).

I cant play games on my Wii. When I insert disc,I get error msg


The owner sold you a WII that has disc reading problems. Your system would need a new laser and/or drive motor to function properly.

You can either buy an extended warranty to have this done or go through the hassle of getting your money back.

Sorry about all of this and hope I helped!

When I record on DVD +RW disc from my other Tv and try to play it on my combie tv ,it will only play if my disc is finalised. so if I only record 30 mins and have to finalise ,I am wasting the disc. Why...

Some tv's are not capeable of reading Rewritable disks. By finalising the disk you are basically making it a non re-writable and thus allowing your other tv to read it.

Please insert ps2 format disc?

Try inserting the disc in your computer. If it reads its fine. Then look if the Slus...... is compatible.maybe thats why it doesn't play. your ps2 must have an old bios system even if slim.

You can try other brands of audio cdr but it sounds like your laser is on it's way out. Some find cdrw's still work after cdr's have stopped being recognised.
