Hi,

Check the Data ( IDE/SATA Cable )

Software being used for Burning.

Also uninstall Or remove/replace the Hardware and re-install Drivers.

Final Solution, try a cd laser-head cleaning disk.

    See pages 31 and 65

    For your reference

    ≥The disc cannot be formatted if the write protect tab is switched

    to “PROTECT”. Release the protection to continue (page 64).

    ≥Formatting cannot be performed on DVD-R or CD-R/RW.

    ≥The message “Unable to format” appears when you try to

    format discs this unit cannot use.

    ≥If you have used the direct navigator to protect a programme

    (page 35), the message “Contents on the disc have been

    protected. Start formatting the disc?”
    appears in step 5.

    Select “Start” if you want to format the disc. The contents will be

    erased even if they have been protected.

When i put a dvd in my hitachi htdk185uk it says unknown disc what does this mean


Either a DVD with the wrong region code has been loaded, and your player doesn't recognise it, or you have inserted a disc which is either rewritable (or an incompatible format for your player), a blank DVD or CD, or the disc has not been finalised in a DVD recorder. It depends on the disc(s) you have, whether they are region coded or those using a compatible playback format (finalised DVD-Rs are the best as far as burned copies go).

Examples of incompatible formats for your player may include;
DVD-ROMs
DVD-RAMs (which are the wrong version/speed for your unit)
Mini-DVDs/CDs
CD-RWs
DVDs with a different region code to your player or rewritable discs

* When using shop-bought DVDs, including those purchased online, make sure their region code matches your player.

I'm having problems formatting discs for Panasonic EZ47 DVD recorder. Keep getting "formatting unsuccessful" message.


Now here are the types of DVDs that you can record to DVD-RAM, DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW, DVD+R, DVD+R DL, DVD-R DL
Now the only types that you can format are DVD-RAM, DVD-RW, DVD+RW
So first make sure you are not trying to format the wrong type of DVD. If you are using the correct type then you might want to try a different brand. Sometimes certain brands of DVDs have problems with certain players. You can also try updating your player's firmware and see if that corrects the problem also.

Incorrect disc


Some machines work with -R some with +R. My suggestion is to try a + or - R RW which is rewritable. If you screw it up, no harm done because you can always reformat it and start over again. Don't forget to format the rewritable at the start.

Failure to accept DvD Ram discs in a Panasonic DMR-E55 Recorder


Possibilities are that the laser lens needs cleaning (use a proprietary cleaning disc) or that - as long as you are sure you have original manufacturers' discs and not fakes - the discs are scratched or dirty.

PANASONIC DVD RAM DISC RECORDING


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

To my knowledge the only basic requirement to play a recorded disc into another machine (even of the same brand) is that the disc must be finalized. The recorder must be instructed that no further recording is intended and that the recorded disc wold be in use externally (some other standalone player).

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Sony dvd rdr gx300 failure to delete discs


You can delete titles on a DVD+/-R, but it will not free up disc space. These are not "rewritable (RW)" disks.

To reuse discs, start with a DVD +/-RW. Be sure to format it "VR," not "Video."

Will not write on 16x disc


I have used 16x's but they were Sony +R's , besides this brand I will only use rewriteables which it doesnt seem to matter what brand those are. I only have used the +RW's though.My MU unit likes both but my ZU unit doesnt like th RW's as well. Wants to format and finalize, whereas my MU doesn't insist on finalizing it. Try the Sony discs. I just wait till they go on sale and stock up. IF this doesn't work maybe your unit is failing.

Recording problem


I have had two of these recorders, Using only Sony + discs or rewriteables is my solution, I will not use any thing else. It may work 1-3 times on others brands then start throwing coasters.
As to renaming, on my model I pull up the tiltle menu then select Try using rewriteables for the other problem as well My model is a little older and lets me take disc out without finalizing then when inserting select title, hit edit on remote and select rename. Maybe if you can skip the finalizing (as with rewritables it will help
