Re: lvw5005 recorder

How long have you had that and where did you get it from?

Some places just exchange the product (Best Buy, Walmart, etc) by taking the product and showing the receipt.

I also found this on their website, good luck on your laser hunt!

Will not record dvd's

There are different kinds of DVD recorders and different kinds of recordable DVD disks.   Your disk must match the format of your recorder.  (eg DVD -rw, dvd -r, dvd +rw, dvd +r).  Look on the front panel of the emerson recorder and see what emblems are printed on it.  Your dvd must match the kind.  Also, if a dvd is of the -r or +r variety and has been finalized you cannot overwrite/rewrite to it.  (From a quick web search it appears your dvd uses dvd -r.)

Disc error message when load DVD

Are you loading to play or to record?
Commercial DVDs should play.
DVDs for recording may not be recognized by your drive. First make sure that the disc is blank. You must insert a blank disc of the proper format: DVD-R or RW, DVD+R or RW. Even with the proper format, some brands may not behave the same way as other brands.

Says blank DVD-RW is not formatted, then formats -- then error

I have same TOSHIBA D-VR4XSU VCR/DVD RECORDER. According to the
manual, you (COULD) can use for recording: DVD-RAM, DVD-RW and DVD-R (see page 50). WRONG!!! I bought all 3 types of discs, but after few
weeks I got same experience you got now. Just type DVD-R works. The other
types were - wasted money and a lot of time trying to finalize the disc. I had to
throw all into the garbage. Try DVD-R and you should?? be O.K.

Can anybody help me, I purchased a Samsung dvd recorder model dvdvr350m, since purchasing the unit it will not recognize that it has recordable dvd's in it (dvd-rw),it tells me no disc inserted please...

Did the sales guy use the same DVD-RW that you did? Maybe the brand you are using is not of good quality and can not be recognized by the recorder. If he did not use the same disc did you notice if he used DVD-RW or DVD+RW? Some DVD-Recorders only recognize one or the other but this is kind of rare these days. I recommend verbatim brand discs. They should be available for sale at any shop. If you want the ultimate in quality DVDs then go with Taiyo Yuden. This Japanese brand invented recordable media and in addition to that they are obsessed with quality. is always where I get my discs.
