Below is a list of discs that should or should not be used with the DVD recorders.

The following are brands of discs we DO NOT recommend:
TDK DVD-RW 4x

Please be aware that a free software upgrade is now available to customers. This upgrade will enable your unit to recognize the (DVD-R 8x) discs. To obtain a copy, please call 1-800-242-7158. Customer service by phone is available 7 days a week 6:00am to 9:00pm pacific time.
In order to receive the upgrade we need to know what firmware version your unit requires. First you need to access the DVD recorders service mode. Turn on the DVD Recorder and the Television, make sure the unit is on the DVD side. You may access the service mode by pressing the CMSKIP button on the remote control. Once you press CMSKIP you must press the numbers 1,2,3. You must do this quickly so it may take a couple tries. The model name will appear on the screen followed by Firmware Version. I need to know the serial number next to FE:
Press the RETURN button to exit screen.

I am confused, it will not load the DVD-R, what dvds will it take?

You may find the disc that are not loading need to be finalised or closed by the pc or dvd recorder that made them. (assuming recorded discs) or even that they are dvd+ and your player won't play dvd+(dvd- being the format for most origional dvds)
