    Thanks for responding to my question. Sorry for not getting back to you sooner, I don't check this email very often.

    The issue is happening with a DVD + R, in a drive that I have used to burn data to the same disk multiple times before (DVD +/- R). It just seemed
    like all of a sudden it decided to stop working. Depending on what burning software I use, the message is usually along the lines of "This disk is write protected", or it doesn't even recognize that the disk is in the drive. I found it particularly confusing considering I hadn't had a problem before, with the very same disk and drive. Also, the issue is intermittent, happening with some disks and not others, and after different numbers of burns to the disk.

    I found one forum where someone recommended disabling the external drive security service, but that didn't help.

    I assume you are talking about an Unburned disc. Does the machine you are using support DVD +R? it should say right on the device. DVD +R is not the same as DVD -R. A burned DVD will give this error as well. A device that can burn both tpyes can have problems with DVD +R and still burn DVD -R (I've had this myself)

Due to the differences in the way DVD +r and DVD -r work, I have found the first thing to fail as a laser ages is DVD +r. I have not discovered why as they both burn discs, similar way. It may have to do with the different chemical composition of the disc or the burn alignment method used (every disc is gauged for its 'best' burn setting by the drive)

I have an error 25 on my dvd recorder

Technically, E25 is a copy-protection error, but I have some additional background on this issue. On the one hand, it could be a legitimate copy-protection error - you are trying to record from a copy-once or copy-protected source - this is especially true if you are trying to record from a Cable/Satellite Box that has a DVR box - since copying to the DVR is considered the first "copy," the Magnavox will not allow you to make a "second" copy.

On the other hand, Magnavox/Funai players see all programs recorded in V mode (as opposed to VR mode) as "copy-prohibited". It records all +R discs in VR mode automatically, so the solution in this case would be to record on a compatible -R disc (or vice versa).

There are two simple fixes for this issue in either case:
1) If you are using a +R disc, switch to a -R disc. If you are using a -R disc, switch to a +R disc. Simply switching the disc type will "fix" Magnavox recorders (long story).
2) If your TV has a "Video Out" or "Monitor Out" (most TV's don't), you can connect a yellow video cable from the OUT of the TV to the Video IN on the back of the Magnavox. This will permanently resolve your problem by fooling the recorder.

Here is additional info about the type of disc to get:
IDiscs that have been tested and are proven to be compatible with this recorder:
IWe strongly recommend for good recording quality:
TDK DVD+R 4x/8x/16x, SONY DVD+R 4x/8x/16x, MAXELL DVD+R 4x/8x/16x, SONY DVD+RW 4x,

Good Luck!
