If you are using a DVD R/W disk then try using disks from a different manufacturer and alo try using a different medium such as DVD-R or DVD+R DL as the camera will not be able to erase any recordings.

I Have a Magnavox MWR10D6 DVD Recorder Certain shows or movies i try to record , I get a pop-up saying " Cannot record in +VR mode " . What is +vr mode and how do I change it?


VR mode or Video Recording mode is a feature on stand-alone consumer and computer DVD recorders that allows video recording and editing on a DVD rewritable disc.
In VR mode, users can create and rename titles for the scenes. Also, if a scene is deleted, the space allocated by it will be utilized later without the need of reformatting a disc.
If the user would like to record on the same disc again at a later time, in VR mode, users may eject the disc and it will not be finalized by the recorder until it is manually initiated. For the sake of comparison, any DVD disc recorded in VR's competitor V mode (or Video mode) will be automatically finalized before it is ejected by the recorder. Disc finalization is still required if the disc formatted for VR mode will be played in another DVD player.
Currently, users can only record in VR mode with the use of DVD-RW, DVD-RAM and DVD+RW discs, (updated in 2000 to accommodate DVD-R (General)) [DVD players marked “RW compatible” and “DVD Multi” can play DVD-VR recorded discs] and on some recorders, also on hard-disk drives.

"No Read" display...99% of the times.


OK. Since the laser cleaning disk could not be read I used a can of air (used for air brushing) and blew air into the disk opening. I thought I might clean any dust that may have collected around any parts that needed to be cleaned. This seemed to have worked. It is also possible that dust accumulated in an area that would not allow the disk to line up properly. This could explain why it worked sometimes. If this continues as a problem I will use the EZ17 only as a tuner for my EZ55.

Asking to format full disc


The simple trick is to put a disc into desktop DVD recorder. If Your DVD will be recognized, then copy all content to another DVD or camera. I've seen it before. Must work. Sincerely.

Trouble with DVD+RW Disks being compatiable or staying formatted


cos they are cheap - get some decent branded discs such as TDK or tayo yuden and it should be fine

Also check the manual and or requirements on there website and it should show which are the best discs to use for that player but TDK or tayo yuden should be fine.

www.svp.co.uk or any where you can buy discs from should be fine

Restoring disk on olympus ws 100


I reformat my olympus ws 100 on a mac and, erase everything, and the computer didnt want to recognized it. When turn on the display showed check and went off. When turn on without connecting to the computer and without the hold the display showed no format. If you use the foward button you can change the display to yes format and press play to select. That solve the problem.

Tascam 788


Hi,

Sorry to hear about your problem. A number of things could cause this error to appear including bad sectors on the hard drive (which will require a reformat).

Two things you can check though before getting into replacing or reformatting the drive (which will erase all of your data) are 1) Make sure the power adapter hasn't failed. A bad or incompatible adapter won't provide enough power to the drive when it tries to spin up and could cause this error. You can try a replacement after-market adapter but you'll have to match the specs in the manual. 2) You can open up the 788 and inspect the two wires connecting the disk drive to the motherboard. One is power and the other will be an IDE ribbon cable. If either is loose that could be the cause of your problem.

If you do determine that the drive is bad you'll need to remove the drive, hook it up to a PC and reformat it there. Then reinstall it in the 788 which will upon bootup automatically reformat it again with Tascam's proprietary disk format. You can optionally replace the drive. I believe Tascam's site has a list of drives which are compatible with the 788. Reformatting (or replacing) the drive will obviously cause all of your data to be lost, but should get your 788 working again (if a bad format was the problem).

One thing of note if the drive format being bad turns out to be the problem is that Firmware versions 1.07 and below have a bug which can cause bad sectors to corrupt the drive after delete operations. If you have a firmware version which is 1.07 or below you should upgrade to a newer revision or you'll risk corrupting the drive again in the future. You can get the upgrade and instructions on how to apply it here: http://www.tascam.com/products/788;9,16,132,19.html

Best of luck and hopefully it's just a loose connection or a bad power adapter.

bd.

LG DVD RECORDER MODEL DR165


I had the same problem. It was fixed under warranty. It was some sort of alignment problem. It would not play SOME commercially produced DVD's either.

Vcr to dvd recording


As i recall, +r's will only format in dvd vr, the unit does not like high speed recording disks. switch to dvd drive - insert blank disk - if no format screen - goto (on remote) setup - onscreen menu - system setup - disc setup - new disk format - hit center button in ring on remote to change to vr or move up to reformat as vr. once disk is formatted, use record speed button on remote to set record speed 1,2,4,6 hr then switch to tape deck with tape in and stopped at begining, on remote hit dubbing, it will ask you confirm dubbing vhs-dvd .... toggle over to yes & hit center button... away you should go... c245 is a copyguarded tape.
