Question about Sylvania DVR90VE DVD Recorder/VCR
Will not record it says that the disc will not playback to please eject. I have tried several different dvd disc brands. It will play movies but will not record.
Unfortunately without a firmware upgrade the only disks you can use are DVD-R or DVD-RW. The tricky part is that you can ONLY USE 2X speed. Per my conversation with Sylvania there is a firmware update that will allow you to use up to 8x disks, but they are charging $17.00 for it.

I use MAXELL DVD-RW 4.7 GB 2X 15-pk (2 hrs in SP Mode), and they work just fine. UPC 25215-62768. I usually get them on sale at Office Depot for $ 6.99 (regular $20 or so).
