I seem to have sorted this problem for me simply by unplugging power.
I actually left it for nearly a week before plugging in again, but I'm sure a day would do, probably less.
Dubbed 2 playlists since, no problem.
Nice simple solution if it works.

I have dubbed vcr tape to a Sony DVD-RW disc and tried playing it back through a toshiba player and it keeps coming up Bad Disk. My PC won't even recognise it. When started dubbing the screen displayed 1hr...


Did you say you used a DVD-RW disc to transfer a videotape onto? The reason your PC won't recognise that disc is because the data format on it is a different language to what PCs understand - plus an unfinalised DVD-RW won't play in other DVD players - it is usually an incompatible format.

(DVD+RW discs with titles/top menus created in video mode CAN be played on a PC DVD drive or a normal DVD player as can finalised DVD-R discs (DVD-R discs MUST be recorded and finalised in the same recorder for compatible playback). DVD-RW discs can only be viewed on the unit they were written/recorded on.

The other reason for the 'remaining space' on the disc you describe showing less than 120 minutes is due to a title recently being recorded or erased - unless you format it - the 120 minute / 4.7GB DVD-RW will not show full available space. Erasing titles on re-writable DVDs does not increase space. The same rule applies to unfinalised +R / -R discs (you cannot re-format these to get the space back once recorded - they are 'once only' writables)

I recommend you invest in some DVD-R discs and re-copy your VHS tape to that - then if you are satisfied with the result, title etc., finalise the DVD-R - it will play on any DVD player or PC with DVD support (or it should). These discs are relatively inexpensive to buy just about anywhere.

Final note: do NOT finalise the DVD-RW you recorded (I hope you haven't already done this) - simply format/erase it - re-use it for something else or keep it until you need it.

You can use any brand of DVD, just take note of the format before recording/playing.

Has really slowed down dubbing - and disc is heated when removed, after only one dubbing and finalizing.


The speed of dubbing depends on the max writing speed of the disc used.
A disc always gets warm after using,the laser gets verry hot.

Try a -RW disc. Only the higher priced DVD recorders can use the +RW disc.

DVD problem


I've had the same problem. Are you using x8 DVD-R? I had no problems with the old x4 discs, but had the (long) Self Check process and a failed dubbing occur between 1/100 and 2/100 in the dubbing process with the x8 discs. I've found two workarounds: 1) The problem doesn't seem to occur if the recordings are made with hi-speed dubbing enabled. I do this now as a default, but the loss of the ws tag is a pain . If I still get a dubbing failure with hi-speed dubbing, a quick power down/power on of the unit seems to rectify the situation. 2) If you record a "leader" in hi-speed dub mode of a minute or two, and dub it onto a x8 DVD-R first, you can then copy non-hi-speed dub recordings onto the disc. Not quite sure why this works, but it does - it's like the first minute or two being dubbed over needs to be hi-speed enabled to be written from the memory of the E-85 to the disc, but once that's done it dubs as it should. btw, another process that crashes the unit is if you try an change the thumbnails on a x8 DVD-R. Not the end of the world but again annoying on expensive equipment less than two years' old. DVD-RAMs are not affected by the problem in my experience. Apparently there's some firmware in the US that addresses the problem with x8 discs - http://www2.panasonic.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/vDownloads?storeId=15001&langId=-1&page=DVDFirmware , but Panasonic UK don't distribute it. I think the E-85 is a good box but it has proven too buggy and I'm thinking of upgrading it, possibly when the new 85 is released by Panasonic in a few weeks. Good luck
