DVD disc recording

I have successfully been recording family videos to DVD's using TDK DVD +R 1-16x speed 4.7 gb single sided - I just purchased Sony DVD +R 4.7GB 1x-16x and each time I put them into the DVD recorder as soon as it has automatically formatted the disc a sign come up to say BAD DISC. Why is this happening because these discs appear to be the same as the TDK discs. How can I fix the problem. Thanks Wendy "scraggs'

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.

Have just purchased a secondhand Philips 570 cd recorder and purchased TDK blanks for my first recording test.While the disc was still in the machine it recorded and played back ok.However,after removing...


Are you sure the TDK blank had either AUDIO/MUSIC somewhere written on the disc...if not, then that is the problem. On the other hand it it should not have recorded or played back as you said it did.
If it did have Audio/Music written on the disc, then first of all give the laser a clean by using either a disc cleaner or better still, take the cover off and gain access to the laser, using a cotton bud, diped in INDUSTRIAL METHALATED SPIRIT (usually coloured purple) do not use medical metholated spirit as oily additives could be added and smear the laser lens. Dry off the lens with the dry end of the cotton bud. Do not soak the cotton bud in the spirit, just a very small amount will do !!!
If it does not work now, try using other good named branded Audio/Music CD-R discs as there appears to be such a variation in the quality of CD discs which is well documented !
Did you FINALISE the TDK disc before you removed it from you recorder??
I have a feeling its the TDK disk.....I avoid TDK if I can...Try Sony or Philips Audio/Music discs, very few failures for me with those brands.
Hope this has ben of some help...good luck

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 would like to try for the first time to record a DVD on my HP nx5000 Notebook. On a label enclosed with the blanks I have purchased I read: ?Use of this disc in incompatible recorders may lead to...


Hi there.
Yes of course you can use that disk to burn to, most recorders these days don't get damaged and can write to just about any disk which is on the market.
The message that comes with the blank disks is just a generic message which covers the disk manufacturer from liability, if the disk is incompatible then the recorder will not write to it, it will not damage the recorder.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

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.

I have failed to copy pictures on my Sony 48x/24x/48x/16x DVD Rom. The system says there is no disc. I am using TDK DVD-R 1-16x speed 4.7 GB single sided.


Hey,

looking at the details you have posted about your cd drive, its a cd burner with dvd reading cability.

can you post me the model of your drive to confirm this, it says on top of the drive, maybe on the front.

or simply try a CD instead of a DVD

Thanks,

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.
