Question about Panasonic DMR-ES40VS DVD Recorder/VCR
The Panasonic DMR-ES40V does not recognize the DVD RAM disk. IT indicated that it is an incompatible disk. I also purchaced new DVD RAM DISK and got same error message. It will not record, playback or let me use any function when the DVD RAM is is inserted. It will however, record, playback when using a DVD-R disk, but in order to record the next program, the Panasonic DMR-ES40V needs to be unplugged and reset for each additional program. Sometimes this works, sometimes it doesn't. At times it will indicate on display that it is recording, yet nothing is recorded on the disk. Very frustrating!
I only want to be able to use my DVD-RAM DISK, but again its says the DVD RAM disk is an incompatible disk although the DVD RAM was included when DMR-ES40V was purchased as new. Please Help!

Got the same problem. Happened 2 months after guarantee expired. **** machine. The only good thing is the harddrive and that is made by HITACHI not Panasonic! I go Sony next time. Panasonic quoted £200 plus to fix the problem. I only paid £220 when I bought it new.
