What is the difference between a DVD+RW and a DVD-RW.


DVD-RW
It is the re-recordable version of the DVD-R. To use this type of media you will need to buy a DVD-RW recorder. The DVD-RW recorders usually record DVD-R, CD-R and CD-RW media, too. Similarly to what happens to DVD-R, DVD-RW disks can be played in newer commercial DVD players without any problems. Older commercial devices cannot recognize the media, refusing to play the disk. To play a DVD-RW disk, commercial players need the disk to be finished. After finishing the disk, you can only record new data in it by reformatting it, which makes you lose all the recorded data.

DVD+RW

It is the re-recordable version of the DVD+R and everything that was said about the DVD+R is valid for the DVD+RW. Only the newest DVD players play movies recorded in disks using this format. There are recorders on the market that can record both DVD-RW disks and DVD+RW ones. These recorders are called DVD?±RW. Similarly to the DVD-RW, the disk needs to be finished to be played in commercial DVD players, and to record new data in the disk after having finished it requires reformatting it, which makes all the data in it to be erased. DVD+RW recorders are usually capable of reading DVD-RW disks (but not of recording them) and vice-versa.


There you are.

It wont record on 16xdvd+r discs? what is the properdisc


  • Media Type that the unit will play CD , DVD , CD-R , SVCD , CD-RW , DVD+R , DVD-R , DVD+RW , DVD-RW , DVD-ROM , Video CD
  • Media Format PAL , NTSC
  • Recordable Media DVD+R , DVD+RW only.. It will not record on the more expensive and compatible DVD-R, DVD-RW.
  • I recommend burning at a slower speed such as 2.4X, 4X or at most 8X.
  • I had similar issues resulting in many "coasters" for drinks burning at a faster rate even with my computer. Although some disks are designed to burn at a faster rate, software and components sometimes cannot keep up resulting in wasted money and time.
  • It may also be the media (manufacturer of disks). No matter which DVR or Burner you may have certain hardware schemes do not like certain media. It is a trial and error process. Just make sure the store has a return policy for the disks if they don't work. I have never had a problem returning disks to Staples that did not work.
I hope this helps and good luck.

Will not record dvd's


There are different kinds of DVD recorders and different kinds of recordable DVD disks.   Your disk must match the format of your recorder.  (eg DVD -rw, dvd -r, dvd +rw, dvd +r).  Look on the front panel of the emerson recorder and see what emblems are printed on it.  Your dvd must match the kind.  Also, if a dvd is of the -r or +r variety and has been finalized you cannot overwrite/rewrite to it.  (From a quick web search it appears your dvd uses dvd -r.)

Sylvania dvr90vf dvd recorder


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.

Play Back


Some DVD players can't read -R & -RW disks. When you finalize make sure it is in Video mode not VR mode so the recorded disk will be able to work in most other DVD players. Also some DVD players only read recorded disks rated up to 1x, 4x, 8x, 16x, or a combination of these speeds.

DVD reports: No disk when I try to play a DVD-R record by me


Dvd-R and +RW are two different formats. Check to see if your player should play -R disc.
