Question about Panasonic DMR-EZ47V DVD Recorder/VCR
I bought a 5 pack of Memorex DVD+R DL discs. I tried all 5 of them and none of them work in my Panasonic DMR-EZ475VK. I called Panasonic and they said they think it is a problem with the discs and not my unit. Naturally we went through the process and I told him what the screen and display said regarding errors.
Has anyone else had any problems recording DL discs? I was thinking of buying Sony DL dics instead but thought I would check out this forum first. Thanks!
The discs could be the problem. Even in the same model you will find some that reject a certain type of disc, and yet the one made directly after it on the production line will be fine. The same applies to PC burners.
Other times those same discs will be rejected or accepted. It's all about the fine lines in production. A minor difference to things like the laser when it was assembled, or the dye used in the discs is all it takes.
This is why most companies will have a reccomended set of discs that are known to work due to them being manufactured to a higher standard. Between the higher and lower is not alot, but enough to cause problems.
Look for a place that sells discs as singles, then get one and try it out. The other thing to keep in mind is the more expensive discs will hold the data better, longer and with less errors.
