You are on the right track. Every "multi-format" DVD recorder, DVD burner and DVD-RW drive I have ever owned has had problems with one type of media or another. This is because the discs all have their own patented dye mixtures, and each is a little bit different.
I have problems using Memorex DVD-R discs on my Toshiba DVD recorder. The only drive I can get good results with Memorex DVD-R's is on my Memorex DVD drive.
For DVD-R media, I have had the best success with TDK DVD-R's.So far, they have worked on all my devices.
You may want to try DVD+R media. I use Memorex Lightscribe DVD+R and for dual layer recording, I use Ativa DVD+R DL discs, both of which have worked very well and I rarely have to throw one away.
It takes allot longer, but on my PC I always use the "verify" function to make sure I get a good copy.
your recorder will normally give you 5 changes at different regions, and on the last region change that is the one that it stays on, although if you you have never changed the region go to> my computer>right click on your dvd drive>properties and on the hardware tab, your hard drive and dvd drive will show, highlight your dvd drive and click properties and click the dvd regions tab and look at the region to see wot its set at, if you still have 5 changes, it should be set at your region one, if there are no changes left you need to search and download a region free dvd programme to allow any region dvd to be played programme
make sure all the cords are hooked up to it properly in the computer case and if they are hooked up tight and none are loose make sure you have music/dvd codecs on your computer get a codec pack and then it should write a cd like normal for a codec pack just go to google and download one doesnt matter what one
The DW-100 burns files in the same format as they were originally recorded by your camcorder. The Canon Vixia HG-21 records in AVCHD--a high-definition format--which is completely different from standard-definition DVD and which is not compatible with regular DVD players (even though the disc itself is a standard DVD-R). As it states in the manual for the camcorder, "High-definition (AVCHD) discs created using the optional DW-100 DVD
Burner can be played back only with AVCHD-compatible DVD players."
The DW-100 is really more for archiving
your files in their native format than for creating standard DVDs that
can be played on regular DVD players. Regular (standard-definition) DVD players
can't play AVCHD, although many Blu-Ray players can. Unless you use a
Blu-Ray player that supports AVCHD playback, there are two solutions to
1. If you want to keep your recordings high-def,
you can view them by playing them back with the DW-100, which must be
connected to your camcorder via the USB cable, then from your camcorder
to your TV via an HDMI cable.
2. If you want to have standard
DVDs that you can play on any DVD player, either import the files to
your computer and convert them to standard-definition using
video-editing software, then burn them to DVD with your computer's DVD
burner, or connect the analog output (component=better, composite=good)
to a stand-alone DVD recorder (i.e. not the DW-100).
the route of Vixia HF-10 camcorder > composite output > Panasonic
DMR-ES25S DVD recorder (about $65 used on eBay) with pretty good
results when I've wanted to give videos to relatives who don't have
Blu-Ray players. You just have to make sure to set the camcorder 's
analog (composite) output to 480i so that it formats the picture in the
right aspect ratio, or else the 16:9 image will be squeezed to 4:3
instead of letterboxed.
Its because you need a firmware update. The media you are currently using isn't recognized. I stumbled in here with the same problem. I haven't been able to find an update, so I will probably have to try a different brand of disc myself. The burner worked fine until I tried using a new pack of Verbatim discs.
Some disc brands just don't work with certain burners, and that can result in the said error. Did the store give you a different brand when they replaced your old batch?
this error can also be a result from burning too much to the disc, or from trying to copy protected content.
If you're burning movies, I would suggest that you close all other programs while burning, and burn at the lowest speed. Regardless to the error, you'll get a better quality result.
