My DVD player stops recording about 3/4 of the way in...no matter which speed/time setting. Or, It'll seem fine, but during finalization, it'll stop and say"recover" and not do anything at all. What's up? We use Sony DVD's now, but prior to that almost exclusively Fuji blank discs. Suggestions?

mine says NB108. You may have the correct remote. make sure after you push setup that you use the lower set of arrows, not the ones beside the play/stop buttons. this should allow you to move over and push right arrow, moving you over the disk options allowing you to format and other options. i can't tell you how many times i've pushed the wrong arrow and thought something was the matter. additionally, you may only be allowed to use up to 8x recording speed disks. i've had mine awhile, and have had a service pack that allowed me to go from 4x speed to 8x speed. there is no service pac to allow you go higher on the dvd-r. i believe the highest you can use on the dvd-rw is 2x.
hope this helps
with a DVD+/- RW disc the amout of time keeps dropping because with every recording process the disc loses a life you can burn those disc 200 times before they become useless so the disc might be beyond the life peroid or bad
my prob is with the DVD-/+R disc tho and i figured it out the disc was bad
for the grinding noise if its hi piched its normal thats the disc spinning up to read or write speed
if that not the case something is rubbing in there and that might explaine the writting errors
the disc manurfacture dose not take resposnablity for defective disc and any loss they have caused(if the data is lost)

I had that exact same problem. I would record a bunch of dvds with no problems for months and then some and one day it doesn't work. Only this showed up E4 EA03738B. However I've found the solution. Instead of going out and returning the recorder or buying new dvds just purchase a Laser Lense Cleaner. It's a dvd cleaner. Works like a charm.
Problems Player won’t work (locks up) •
Try unplugging the AC power cord and plugging it back in. •
Reset the DVD/VCR: on the front of the unit, press and hold the STANDBY/ON
button while you press and hold the STOP button—wait at least 3 seconds before
you release both of the buttons. You’ll need to set up your menu preferences
because this Reset Procedure returns the DVD/VCR’s menus to the factory default settings and also erases the
contents of the Disc Library.
What are “Recording modes”? for DVD-RW There are two recording modes available using this recorder: VR mode and Video mode. When recording to a DVD-R disc, recordings are always in Video mode. DVD-RW discs can be formatted for VR mode recording or Video mode recording. VR mode recording • 4 different picture quality/recording time settings available (SP, LP, EP, XP) • Not playable on regular DVD players • Recordings can be extensively edited • Total number of titles on the disc should be less than 99. Video mode recording • 4 different picture quality/recording time settings available (SP, LP, EP, XP) • Playable on regular DVD players (after finalizing) • Limited editing features • Total number of titles on the disc should be less than 99. Note : DVD-Video Format (Video mode) is a new format for recording on DVD-R/RW discs that was approved by the DVD Forum in 2000. You may therefore experience problems playing recordable DVD discs in some players. Symptoms include video artifacts, audio and/or video dropouts and playback suddenly stopping. Our company cannot take responsibility for problems playing discs recorded on this VCR/DVD Recorder in other players.
