    Although a BestBuy guy told me that any 1-16x speed dvd-r should work, it didn't. I got a hold of a Sharp technical guy who told me it would only work with the 2x or 4x. I bought a 25-pack of 4x dvd-rw (Memorex) (and not from BestBuy), and had the same problem. Searching around for the old media that I used to use, Imation, the Amazon site said they were currently unavailable. However, the site Videohelp appeared to be helpful, with media rated by compatibility, including with consoles. Their media that was top rated for compatibility was "Silver Gold Maxell 4.7 GB DATA DVD-R 1-4X SPEED". I'll check it out and let you know.

    I HAVE HADTHE SAME ISSUE FOR A COUPEL YEARS, I CANT FIND ANY DISC TO WORK AND CANT GET ANY SUPPORT FROM SHARP

  • kjmac50 Jan 03, 2009

    I have the same problem. I used to be able to get Verbatim DV-R 1x to 4x and they worked fine. Can't find them anywhere and have wasted money trying others especially 1x to 16x disks.



    I will never buy Sharp again!!!!

I have had great success with Dynex Model DX-DVD-R25.  They are specifically: 4x  120min.  4.7gb. It's a spindle of 25.   The UPC Code is 00603 10116.  Now I'm searching for more myself!   These discs have worked well for me and play great in other DVD players, as well.  If you find 'em... please post it here!

Keep getting disc error c211 when dubbing from VHS to DVD on Sharp combo


Very interesting. It fails for me with DVD-R 16x discs, fair enough, but also with DVD-RW 2x discs, so what next?

Which recordable dvds play on this dvd player


this brand and model should be able to play the discs you mentioned witih no problems, unless it is defective, or a error is being made when you are recording the discs. If you are recording and they ar enot playing, most likely you are not "finalizing" the discs durring the burn processs. All discs MUST BE finalized to be played on any dvd player.

It will not load certain dvd discs


Below is a list of discs that should or should not be used with the DVD recorders.
DVD-R
4x can be used
8x will result in a disc error.
DVD-RW
2x can be used
4x will result in a disc error.
The following discs have been tested and are proven to be compatible with our DVD recorders.
MEMOREX DVD-R
FUJIFILM DVD-R
FUJIFILM DVD-RW
IMATION DVD-RW
IMATION DVD-R 2.0
TDK DVD-RW 2X
TDK DVD-R 2X
The following are brands of discs we DO NOT recommend:
MEMOREX DVD-RW
SONY DVD-RW
SONY DVD-R
TDK DVD-RW 4x
TDK DVD-R 4x

Please be aware that a free software upgrade is now available to customers. This upgrade will enable your unit to recognize the (DVD-R 8x) discs. To obtain a copy, please call 1-800-242-7158. Customer service by phone is available 7 days a week 6:00am to 9:00pm pacific time.

In order to receive the upgrade we need to know what firmware version your unit requires. First you need to access the DVD recorders service mode. Turn on the DVD Recorder and the Television, make sure the unit is on the DVD side. You may access the service mode by pressing the CMSKIP button on the remote control. Once you press CMSKIP you must press the numbers 1,2,3. You must do this quickly so it may take a couple tries. The model name will appear on the screen followed by Firmware Version. I need to know the serial number next to FE:
Press the RETURN button to exit screen.

Won't work with the same kind of discs i've used before


I not sure as to which type of Discs that you are refering to (ie DVD+R or DVD+RW). This player will only recognize 4x (max) DVD+RW and 8x (max) DVR+R discs. If the DVD+R Disc is 16x, the DVD recorder will not recognize it once you start to record. The player will read the blank Disc and give the impression that it will record on it. I have noticed that when a 16x speed Disc is in the Drive, The recordable hours for the disc seems to double. The normal 6 Hour recording length comes up as 12 Hours when you hit the info button. Since the 8x Speed (max) discs are not available any longer, I found it best to use the DVD+RW 4x Discs and make it compatible. I then copy the compatible DVD+RW disc to a 16X DVD+R disc using my computer DVD burner. The DVD+RW disc can then be erased so that it can be reused.

Hi

As per its user manual you cannot play back discs such as VCD (VIDEO CD) ,CD-R, CD-RW, CD-ROM, DVD-RAM, DVD-RW, etc., even though they may be labelled . Please refer to Onkyo DVC600 User Manual for more information.

Please do rate the solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Trouble recording to DVD - connections are not done right - Sharp DVD-RW340


I had to run from the RCA outs of my DVR into the inputs that are on the front right of the RW340...behind the little door.  Now I can easily record from live cable or from my Comcast DVR recorder.  Couldn't get it to work from the backside inputs.
Mine is just the DV RW340 (no U).  And yes, the manual is brutal.  We had to call tech support to find what disc will actually work in the darned thing.
Now my big problem is finding more 4x DV-R disks. Shoulda bought more when Comp USA was clearing them out a few years ago!

I have had great success with Dynex Model: DX-DVD-R25 discs.  And they play equally nicely on my Toshiba DVD player in the livingroom.   I have also given several away to people after I had transfered home videos to DVD and those people all had good results playing the discs that I made on my lowly Sharp Dv-RW340.

Disc error


I have this same problem so I called Sharp.  This model is  a little older.  When you buy the disks there is a number with an X after it.  If you buy the - R disk the number has to be 4X or less,  for the -RW it has to 2X or less.  Apparently they can still be bought at Office Depot or online.
