Media Typethat the unit will play CD
DVD+RW only.. It will not record on the more expensive and compatible DVD-R, DVD-RW.
I recommend burning at a slower speed such as 2.4X, 4X or at most 8X.
I had similar issues resulting in many "coasters" for drinks burning at a faster rate even with my computer. Although some disks are designed to burn at a faster rate, software and components sometimes cannot keep up resulting in wasted money and time.
It may also be the media (manufacturer of disks). No matter which DVR or Burner you may have certain hardware schemes do not like certain media. It is a trial and error process. Just make sure the store has a return policy for the disks if they don't work. I have never had a problem returning disks to Staples that did not work.
ARE YOU TRYING TO LOAD A PROPERLY FORMATTED DISC??? IS THE DISC PLAYABLE ON ANY OTHER DVD IN YOUR HOME??? HAVE YOU RUN A LENS CLEANER IN YOUR SYSTEM??? HAVE YOU PREFORMED A SYSTEM RESTORE BEFORE THIS STARTED?
Had the same problem. Found an answer digging around and it worked: Press the STOP button and the OPEN button at the same time. Hold for about 10 seconds and it UNLOCKS.
I even went back to Bestbuy and they had no clue.
But it worked!
