Question about Tascam DV-RA1000 DVD Recorder

1 Answer

What are the most likely causes for intermittent 'unable to format' message. I have tried two brands of DVD. The machine still burns and plays CD's and previously recorded DVD's, also I can create a new session on an already formatted DVD. Thanks-Nigel-Pegasus Studios-Cairns, Australia

Really bad disks. Try using the same brand and model that has worked before and see if that fixes it.

I have a dell 755 that the CD drive won't play certain CD's. It is not the CD because it plays on other machines. Some CD's will play just fine. Get's the error message Unable to Access Drive D tr


it depends on the files on the cd ...they might require a certain software to be installed in order to be read..for example the player may not be able to read mp4 without a codec installed ..or vcd (video cd ) to need a dvd player installed or a player that supports video cd and dvd-es..Same way for other file types...or ...certain speeds being imposed on writing ..and your cd drive to be unable to read them on those speeds..

Trying to write to blank disk first time (Memorex CD-RW). Get message: Record failed: wrong format for re-write Spectroniq SDR-205 DVD Recorder


Some DVD recorders cannot write CD-RW - only DVD-RW (+ and -) as well as DVD-R (+ and -) (this depends on the brand/model). This unit probably does not support CD recording. Try using DVD-RW instead for this machine - see if it records that (do not finalise even if unit prompts you to with an on-screen message prior to ejecting disc).

There are DVD players and recorders which can play CD-RW (mp3, jpegs etc.) but I don't know of any which record this format (a PC CD/DVD-ROM drive can do this though).

Brand new Haeir DVD player, only one play so far says "Bad Disk"


Either the disks were badly (too fast) burned or the files on them are of an unsupported format.

Discs will not play back on dvd


What DVD's are you using +R/RW -R/RW some formats may not work especially on non-branded media some DVD players wont even play CD-R but will play some CD-RW of the correct brand.

I suggest that you try your finalized DVD in your PC then create an image using ImageBurn then burn the image onto a branded media and try again. Most firmware on DVD burners are very forgiving and will support a wider range of manufacturers and formats.

Hope this helps, you might want to look on your DVD players website for updated firmware you will need a blank CD and create a update disc using your computer.

Burned DVDs play on PC but won't play on home player. I have 3 PC (2HPs and 1 Parts built),running XP home, pro, media. I bought 2 Samsung SH-S182 DVD±RW Dual Layer Burner, and have tried them on all 3...


Nero 6 and 7 does not provides us the facilitiy of burning the DVD in appropriate DVD Format. Instead it burns the DVD in the normal DATA Format, which is not supportable by our DVD Player. To play the DVD in our DVD Player we should burn the DVD in the appropriate DVD Burner which itself converts the extension of the movie and make it proper for a DVD Player to read it. It also adds some files to the DVD which is sometimes used by the dvd player in running the DVD.

Burning problem


Try different brand. Your Drive is a sensitive type and it only accepts some DVD-R brands. Also try DVD-RW disc. I had the same problem but not specifically the exact problem. My drive is cd writer only. Same problem, I just used diff CD-R brand like Imation and Philips and the burning works like a charm.

None of my DVD players will show photos from CD-R photopro (maxell)


What type of pic file are you burning to the CD? What format are you using as a burn profile? Without knowing this, my only guess is your DVD player can't show the pics in the format used, so you need to work around that problem. Shouldn't be too hard, reply back with more info...
