    Sorry, don't understand your language - can you please rewrite it in simple english - thanks.

  • scraggs Mar 29, 2008

    Yes I have cleaned the dvd with a cleaning disc. This did not help.

  • scraggs Mar 29, 2008

    The Sanyo and TDK are both + R - are you saying I should be using -R because the instruction Manual says to use +R

  • scraggs Mar 29, 2008

    Thank you I will try that - how do I clean the laser-

It is possible that the laser is dirty, have you tried to clean it with a dvd cleaner or even a clean soft cloth?

    you have cleaned the dvd, but have you cleaned the laser in the player? This is most likely your problem

  • Benjamin Patri
    Benjamin Patri Mar 29, 2008

    If you have a DVD cleaner, then you can insert that into the player and follow instructions otherwise to clean with a soft cloth, you must open up the player (make sure the power is off and it is unplugged) and then wipe the glass on the laser

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.

I'm unable to find DVD discs that will record in my machine. I was using Maxell DVD+RW 4x but am not able to find them. If it says "up to 4x" it will not work. If I buy Memorex 4x, they won't work. I saved...


I have found that the DVD recorder in this unit will not recognize a DVR+R disc greater than 8X speed. Therfore 16X discs are not an option. Like you already know, it likes DVD+RW 45X speed discs but it is selective. I have been using Maxell DVD+RW 4x and have found that Verbatim DVD+RW 4X and Sony DVD+RW 4X work just as well.

Trouble with DVD+RW Disks being compatiable or staying formatted


cos they are cheap - get some decent branded discs such as TDK or tayo yuden and it should be fine

Also check the manual and or requirements on there website and it should show which are the best discs to use for that player but TDK or tayo yuden should be fine.

www.svp.co.uk or any where you can buy discs from should be fine

Won't recognize blank DVD+R disc


Try the next disc in the stack, and see if it will recognize the next one. If not, the problem is most likely the recording speed of the +R disc. Before you go changing disc types, however, I would also check the Record Mode you have set for the dub - if the REC Mode is set for XP, try changing the mode to SP and see if you have any luck. If it still won't work, try one of the tested +R discs:
SONY (2.4x, 4x, 8x, 16x)
TDK (4x)
Mitsubishi (4x, 8x)
Ricoh (2x, 4x, 8x)

Recording Error -- E7


When I bought my emerson ewr10d4 about 2-3 years ago, the machine only recorded on disks that were rated at 2x or 4x speed. And it didn't accept off-brand disks, it only liked the major brands like Maxell, TDK, Memorex, Sony. I learned this quirk the hard way. Eventually, when I called the 1-800 number, they sent me a disk to upgrade the recorder to 8x speed (and it was very simple to do - basically just pop it in). Helped a lot, although this year most disks in stores are 16x speed, and as of a couple months ago (November 2008) emerson didn't have a newer up-to-date upgrade available. But if you didn't do the 8x upgrade yet, call them and start there. It's a small improvement, but an improvement nonetheless. By the way, if anyone wants to buy some lesser-known chinese and japanese-brand disks, I may be able to help!

Dirty Disk Problem with DVD+R Disks on SONY RDR-GX300?


I have used my Sony GX300 for a couple of years and love it. I prefer +R blanks. The only occasional problem is the media brand. It will not record Fuji 16X, but will record Fuji 4X, which are rare nowadays. I have used TDK 16X with success, but this week bought TDK "lightscribe" blanks, and the GX300 would not record with them.

Sony should provide an upgrade download for the GX300 but does not. On the internet I have been unable to find a list of suitable brands for this DVD recorder, so I have to take risks when shopping. Fortunately, all blanks can be used for my computer so my money is not really wasted.

It's October, 2009 and in Toronto there has been a shortage of DVD blanks for months. I've been told there will be lots available in December.

DVD disc recording


Certain disc only work in certain recorders - I know this sound weird but you must find the disc that is compatible with the recorder that you are using. If the TDK discs is working continue to use the TDK discs. Even though the format and the specifications are the same on both disc, the readers does not read all disc.

What DVD+R Do my player require?


The disks required by the go-video are the dvd+r only..the brand shouldn't make any difference.
I would stay away from the 'cheapies',but you dont need expensive disks.
if you get an error when you start 'rec' ,the message displays why.
check your settings,and be sure the record timer is off.
if you have multiple segments recorded,and you record until the disk is full,
it may not finalize because there is not enough room on the disk for the menu structure.
the disk will only play in this machine. if it simply wont record,you might try a lens cleaning disk.
or you have a failure in the write laser.
