Question about Televison & Video
I Bought a Bush video to dvd recorder about a year and a half ago, it uses DVD +R's 8x, I bought a big spindle of +R's and a small spindle of R/W's.
I rarely use it for recording, but was running out of +R's - so bought some more, tried on in machine - message appeared 'No Disc', tried some from different part of spindle - none were recognised!?
They were a good make, I returned them to the shop and changed them for another good make, I got the same problem.
On checking I discovered the new DVD's were 16x, so I hunted for some 8x, I bought lots as I thought they were becoming obsolete, but got the same 'No Disc' message!?
The machine works perfectly with the recorded discs, and still works perfectly with the last few blank discs I have left from the original spindle.
I have been told there was an article in the paper about this problem, but I never saw the article.
I have now used the last +r discs, and have a few R/W discs left.
I contacted Bush but they did not seem to grasp the problem - they did not seem to know what I was talking about.
Can you help?
Owing to the fact that it works with the original discs, the set is probably ok. BUT it's not very compatible with the blank discs you've purchased. You'll have to experiment with various brands until you find those that work. I find my Cyberhome deck is not only particular with some brands, but with different batches of the same brand disc. Ask some of the big box stores that sell blanks and you'll find they get a lot of returns for the same reason, they don't work in the customer's machine. Bush doesn't sound very competent in the customer support dept, so I would look to replace your Bush recorder with something more main line, and probably more expensive and compatible.
Oh, and make sure you are getting the same type of disc- DVD-R and DVD+R are not the same.
