    Well I ran the disc I received from toshiba, took some advice and dimmed the dimmer lights and can now finalize the discs. The problem now posing is... I put the finalized disc in my other dvd player and it said "Incorrect disc" I used two discs and both said the same. So, my advice is forget about the toshiba dvd recorderand buy a different brand

    Ok I was wrong. apparently you can call toshiba and get the disc and
    run it on your dvr-4. After this you will no longer get the err 14 or
    shjouldn't....and you can finalize the discs.The problem is
    though....they will only play on some dvd players and a new problem
    occured today which was, one of the recorded movvies played over
    halfway through, stopped and wouldn't restart and continue play

    I've had our machine for almost 2 years and it has worked fine except over half of the dvd's can not be formatted and just lately the error 14 shows up and will not record the programmed tv shows... My wife is upset with me because I cant fix it. What can I do??? How does one clean the recorder?? Would cleaning help???

Check to see if you are using 16X media. If so contact Toshiba for a fireware upgrade. If that is not the problem try cleaning the disc and cleaning the unit with a DVD Laser Lens cleaner. Then try again.

Disc load problem


DVD players need a finilized disk. When the program finilizes the disk, it's writing the TOC which is where the players go to find the files.

MY TOSHIBA DVR MODEL DR420KU WILL NOT RECORD ON DISC. IT KEEPS GIVING AN ERROR CODE AND NOW IT WILL NOT PLAYBACK DVD-R DICS, BUT IT WILL PLAY MY DVD+R DISCS. WHAT COULD BE THE SUDDEN PROBLEM?


see the cause and remedies:
Does not play disc
  1. No disc. - Load a disc into the tray.
  2. Disc has been loaded upside down. Place the disc with the label side up.
  3. Disc region code does not match region code of the player.
  4. Disc type is not the correct type to play.
  5. Disc is damaged or dirty. Clean the disc or try another.
  6. Moisture may be condensed inside the unit. Remove the disc and the leave the power on for one or two hours.
Finally the OPU optical pickup contain lasser beam, NOT are reading the TOC from DISK+ Syscon can be defective, you must go to the repair shop TV for fix it see the diagram attached, is a complex equipment.
God bless you

Recording Error, Can not record on this disc, E 4 54040990 Just trying to record from TV on a Memorex DVD+RW. Keep getting this error. Any ideas?


Recently started getting the same error message. I thought it was because I was getting to close to full or something that was trying to over fill the discs. Have tried EP and LP and this just started when I had a disc set to record to the end. I can't even open that one or finalize it. The rest do the same. They are working fine and when the error comes up, ZAP the disc is dead, no access.

I also tried putting the same disc into another Magnavox DVD recorder, still no access. These are both the most reliable recorders I've ever owned and I've had a number.

magnavox error message dvd "e 6 2a031000 can not record on this disc."

I suspect at this point, a batch of cheap Nexxtech DVDs. Also it's possible that it's a heat problem with the recorder? Once the disc goes into error mode, it's unreadable and all recordings that haven't been written to the TOC become invisible, but that time is forever lost on the DVD.

DVD is visibly (looking at recording surface) FULL but the supposed record time isn't used up. Data error. Discs reporting wrong size. Try a different brand of DVD.

Problems finalizing discs


Check to see if you are using 16x media.  If you are you need to get a firmware upgrade from Toshiba.  Contact their support number listed inside of the manual.  They will ship you a dvd to insert into the unit.
