Your lite on has lost its mind and needs replacement.

Meanwhile a non rewritable disk cannot be erased. If not finalized it may not be read on another machine but the originating machine can read it.

How do you delete thing from hard disk or erase very thing and start over to get more space on the c drive


You travel dangerous ground

The best answer to your end question is....get a full installation disc, not upgrade, and insert while the computer is on. Have a friend show you how to start from this disc. It can erase everything and give you a new computer.

My Panasonic E55 is having problems reading disks after I try to erase something on them. I erase without success and then it tells me the disk is unformatted. Also will not format disk after that. I...


Sorry this isn't a solution, but I just want to commiserate with you. I am having the same problem. I guess the problem started about three weeks ago. The recorder will not recognize any blank DVD-R discs and it only recognized 1 out of 4 new DVD-RAM discs. It would read most of my older DVD-RAM discs but would refuse to erase some of the old recorded programming. It also refused to recognize some of the older DVD-RAM discs, so in frustration I reformatted one. I was able to record and watch a couple of shows, but now it is saying "Unformat" for that disc.
About a year ago, the DVR gave ma some trouble and I was able to fix it myself. (I think it suddenly wouldn't power on, but I don't really remember if it was that or if it was a "SELFCHECK" error.) I had to open up the case and replace two capacitors. I bought the replacements at Radio Shack and my son helped me solder them on. My next step with this DVR will be to open up the case and look for any obvious problems. The worn-out capacitors looked oily and damaged, as I recall.

If you are using a DVD-RW or DVD+RW, you can format the disc by performing "Format". You can format DVD-RW for either video mode recording or VR mode recording. DVD+RW can be format in order to erase all content of the disc.
You may not be able to reformat a disc that is not previously formatted by your recorder an example would be a. DVD disc formatted by PC or another recorder.
Follow these steps to re-write:
Insert a recordable disc.
1 Press [SETUP].

then press [ENTER].
3 Then select "Format", and
press [ENTER].
4 select "Start", then
press [ENTER].
5 Confirm by selecting "Yes", then press

You don't need to delete timer rec programs to Finalize, Format or Erase discs!

Set the Mag 2160A (mfgd in 2009) to Source L3 (DV) using the Source button on the remote.

To Format a RW disc, set unit on L3 BEFORE inserting a new disc cuz the Formatting op is automatic and starts right away. It's also so short on a +RW (longer on a -RW) that you could think it had been Formatted.

Finalizing requires you to select it from the Disc Edit menu, so you can set the unit on L3 after inserting a disc for this op.

More into on all aspects of setup and op are here:

LG DR4810 DVD recorder says disk is full when it's not.


Have you tried a different disc? Some discs do go faulty. Is the disc compatiable with the machine? Try erasing the disc and starting again.

E-4 54040990 Cannot record on this disc


I had this problem with my Toshiba DVR16 recorder; I was unable to format new DVD-RW discs even though old ones worked fine.

Initially I thought the laser lens was dirty, but no amount of lens cleaning helped. Then I thought the rated disk speed must be to blame, since it was some 4x disks that first presented the problem. But then I tried 2x disks and the problem persisted. So some aspect of the manufacture of these disks must have changed in recent months.

Anyway, the solution I discovered was to perform an 'erase' operation on each disk using a program on my PC called ImgBurn. This is a free program, which can be downloaded from imgburn.com. Just select Tools > Drive > Erase > Quick. Once that's done (it only takes seconds), take the disk out of your PC and pop it in your DVD writer, whereupon it should start its own format routine.

This has worked for me on 3 different brands of disk (Sony, Memorex, Datawrite). Which is just as well, as I was on the verge of throwing the DVD recorder out of the window. Hope it works for you.

I don't know if this will help, but according to the operator's manual I have, on page 64, the only place it mentions "Full" or "Quick" Preparation, is when using a DVD-RW disc. Apparently, with this type of disc, you must use the Full or Quick preparation INSTEAD of Finalizing after you're thru recording onto the disc.
With the DVD-R and DVD+R, all you can do is "Finalize"; With the DVD+RW, if I'm reading this correctly, NIETHER Finalization OR Preparation is required.
But with the DVD-RW, apparently ALL you can do is a "FULL" or "QUICK Preparation.
If you're only getting "Erase or "Finalize" WITH the DVD-RW, then it appears there may be a problem with the machine.
Or, if you're attempting the "FULL or QUICK" Preparation with any disc OTHER than the DVD-RW, all you should get is "erase" or Finalize", since the QUICK or FULL Preparation is not done with discs other than DVD-RWs.

Hope this helps. I'm certainly not an expert on these things....I'm a "Vinyl" type guy.
