I have a Emerson EWR20V4. When I attempt to record anything to a DVD-RW or R.I get a recording error message that appears and states it cannot record to this disc. The error messages are E7, EAO37383 these are 1X-2X Memorex DVD's and also with Sony 4X DVD's with a E7 erorr message. I have recorded times in the past. The system is only about 12-18 months old. I tried different discs, cleaning & unplugging it for a few hours with no avail. Any suggestions????????

For the EWR20V4, press Setup on the remote then select the Disc menu (with the left/right arrows) and press enter. Select Finalize (using the up/down arrows) and press enter. A confirmation window will pop up, select Yes (left/right arrows) and press enter. Note: finalization takes some space on the DVD so leave room after recording to the disc. The step will take a few minutes. Finalization is permanent except for -RW discs (rewritable) and can only be undone with same unit that finalized the dvd-rw.
The unit is saying that its an "Un-format disc" problem. Is this the only error code you are getting? Also, what types of DVDs are being used? As in, DVD-R DVD-RW DVD+R DVD-RW and what speeds? 1x 2x 4x 8x 16x?
The dvd player does not recognize discs above 2x. I contacted Emerson, they have a software upgrade they will send you for free, but you have to ask for it. I think it gives the player the ability to read up to 8x.
The problem is likely that you are using 8x/2x media. Though the booklet does not say it, the burner does not support anything above 4x for DVD-R and 1x for DVD-RW. Calling their tech support can (possibly) get an update for this problem. Otherwise, the burner cannot use anything but outdated media.
