After formatting the disk, it reads that it is an invalid disk.
I have used these disks before for recording, so I know it is not the type of disk I have. We also have a hard time playing some disk, it will sit there and spin and spin, but never play the disk. I run the satilite through this, then to the TV, never had a problem before. I have tried recording on 3 different disks and get the same error each time.

I have a Liteon LVW-1107. It is a very tempramental machine. It tends to prefer +R or +RW disks. Will record on -Rs but may fail with them.
On occasion when I insert a store bought DVD movie I will get an
invalid disk warning. The machine seems to get confused.
What I do is pull the power cord and let it set a few minutes.
Give it a little time to reset. Sometimes you have to do this a couple times. It has always worked for me. I hope it will work for you.

its simple to see where is problem. 1st read one more time formats of audio and video disks ,i mean codec what ur device officially read.(like wma,mp3,mp4,theora.. etc) 2nd then if device can not read disk for which ur sure that are recorded with supported codec or to say in supported format, then leans can be dirty or something is stucked inside,anyway lead u to open and clean laser reading lens inside,with any method. 3rd if disk are recorded in format and codec what that particular device can read,and read even just one disk, then lens are not point to look, then disks can be scrached,damaged or simply no more readable..what can be double checked on some other device. 4th if urs disks are for sure in non-supported format then easy and for free u can convert them in supported format(supported codec) on some computer with most of audio and video converter software,and then record them again,even some software can mannage to read and then record(burn) disks which are not readable any more to normal cd&dvd&bd players. 5th its good to know that is legal and good way to have backup copy of audio and video collection,if what is in use get damaged with tear and wear,or else..so favorite things can be burned or else reused again.
I find that I get the Invalid disk message most likely when I use a DVD-R disk. So now I use only DVD+R for this machine. I have also read somewhere that the problem could be solved by using a Laser Lens Cleaner Cleaning disk.
Try using Sony +R discs. or +RW's are good, any brand as long as they are +'s. For some reason alot of +R discs brands will not work, I wait and just get Sony +R or the +RW's on sale and stock up and I have no more troubles. Mine is the 05MU. The ZU is a little strange with the RW but will still record. Hope this helps.
Try different brands of disk, most dvd-r recorder are disk sensitive, buy only one disk per brand, find the brand compatible to your recorder by just inserting the disk and wait for confirmation that it is ready for recording session. I have tried around five brands, sony and maxell as well as verbatim are good dvd-r disk.

The machine is probably fussy about the type and brand of blank disk it will work with.
Check your manual and sample several brands
2. Playing the burned disk you wish play if from another device has to be finalized in the burner machine.
