Hello Folks, I have had the same problems. Can not use disk like Ridata or Optodisc,but can use some of the brand names. The ones I found to work are Memorex DVD-RW, Sony DVD-RW, and I'm sure there others, but you do pay more for these brand names. There was one Optodisc DVD-RW that did work, but it is no longer available. The disc that do work must meet what is called Specification: Book Version 1.1 If you have the correct discs the unit operates great, and you can finalize the discs and they should work on other players. Hope This Helps, JK.

Your model is a DVD player only and has no recording capability.
There are devices that will allow you to transfer your VHS tapes to a computer equipped with a CD/DVD writer to preserve them on disk.
Tevion is one make that comes to mind.
Sansui VRDVD4005 will record DVDs provided they are DVD-R NOT DVD+R. I have one of these for 3 going on 4 years and I took it apart and cleaned the dust off the magnetic hub and that worked for awhile but (2-3 months) now I'm having trouble finalizing again. Someone on this site said it needs 8x NOT 16x disks ... 'cause it's an older unit ... I'm checking it out in the users manuel. magicbbs
As i recall, +r's will only format in dvd vr, the unit does not like high speed recording disks. switch to dvd drive - insert blank disk - if no format screen - goto (on remote) setup - onscreen menu - system setup - disc setup - new disk format - hit center button in ring on remote to change to vr or move up to reformat as vr. once disk is formatted, use record speed button on remote to set record speed 1,2,4,6 hr then switch to tape deck with tape in and stopped at begining, on remote hit dubbing, it will ask you confirm dubbing vhs-dvd .... toggle over to yes & hit center button... away you should go... c245 is a copyguarded tape.
