How do I fix the problem if the empty disc says can't record on this disc?


Try a new / different disk recognized by this recorder. Make sure you're using DVD+RW disks. Others will not be recognized.

Recording dvd- i try to record and it says cannot record on this disk. its a blank -r/-rw disk.


Hi there, original firmware supports only dvd up to 4x. If you will try speed more than 4, recorder refuse them.
Try to insert 4 x DVD, note even 4 speed dvd will not work all - depends on brand.
There is new firmware available, you have to call customer service before upgrade, they will tell you everything about...
With new firmware you will be able to record all speed and type dvd...

Symphonic DVD recorder wfr205


I have the same Symphonc DVD- VCR Combo wfr205. I can't get it to work either. I called Syphonic support 2 years ago about it, they told me to clean it. I did. It will recognize DVD's sparodicly, but will not finalize them so that I can play them on anything else. I tried 3 different brands of DVD-R all with the same results. I called Symphonic a 2nd time. They do not offer replacement and have never acknowledged the recoder has a problem. I finally bought a Sony DVD recorder. I can use it along with the VCR portion of the Symphonic. The Symphonic was a waste of cash.

Problem with DVD-RW's


I had a very similar problem with my Toshiba D-R2. I found two firmware updates on the Toshiba website. One was called 1314.iso and the other was called 1416.iso. All the instructions are there for how to burn a CD and install it on your DVD recorder. It solved my problems - hope it works for you.

My dvd recorder keeps ruining blank dvd+r's.


I have suffered the same problems as you describe here. What I believe is this unit suffers from inadequate ventilation. After having this problem I examined the unit and noticed it was hot. What I've done is put 2 small flat blocks on each side of the unit, to basically suspend it so that it can get airflow under and over it, now staying much cooler. Nearly all problems now have gone away. Seldomly, I find it will still exibit the problems mentioned. Frankly the only solution I've found from there is to unplug it for a short while and, upon plugging it back in, and trying again it works flawlessly.
