Question about Radio Shack Accurian ADR-0106

2 Answers

Error code I put a blank disc in for recording purposes (the exact same type of discs I have used on the same machine before--a Sony DVD-RW) and I get a Recording Error that says "Cannot record on disc." There is also an error code of 4 54040990. I tried another disc from the same pack just to see if something was defective with the first disc but got the same error code.

    I simply have not tried your recommended solution yet.--Thanks!

    You guys are awesome! I never would have thought that was the problem, but the discs record perfectly now! Sorry it took so long to get back to you, but I just bought the cleaner DVD disc. I must say I was quite skeptical since some of my DVDs (different brand) worked, while this particular batch did not. Oh well, all is well that ends well. Thanks again!

Thank you very much for your suggestion. We will try that. We will obtain disc cleaner tomorrow. I have another question. On the manual (page 13), it goes VCR --> DVD and VCR <-- DVD. How do I do this? Where are the instructions? Thanks in advance for any reply.

    My Accurian DVD recorder is now working perfectly. When I read the suggestion of buying disc cleaner, I immediately looked for one in eBay for $5.00. It arrived yesterday and tried it on my DVD recorder/player right away. Alas! It worked. You just saved me the whole price of a new DVD recorder.



    Thank you so much and more power to you and Fixya!

Hi there,

Try using a DVD / CD cleaner disc in the unit - this might fix the problem.

Post Back here again..

My Philips DVD Recorder does not accept a DVD disc shows no disk. The DVD disc does not revolve. A CD disc revolves but shows junknown


Could be that you are using the wrong type of DVD ? There are two formats DVD+R, DVD+RW etc and DVD-R, DVD-RW etc. Some machines are capable of using either, others can use one of the two formats.
My other suggestion is that some machines are picky about which manufacturer's DVDs they will use.

Can't record DVD's


Hello there.

As per http://www.videohelp.com/dvdrecorders/cinevision-rv4000/881
you can see that your DVD player only supports writing to DVD+R
or DVD+RW, not DVD-RW or DVD-R.


Hope this helps.

When trying to record a home video VHS to DVD this is what I get. E-4 54040990 Cannot record on this disc. The disc is brand new.


Have you've tried cleaning the laser with a cleaning disc?

Failing this it may be worth removing the cover and cleaning the lens directly with a QTip and some lens cleaning fluid. Only use a drop and then wipe off with a clean dry QTip.

The other option is that you are using an incompatible format of blank DVDs. I've heard of people having problems using DVD-R & DVD-RW and although it is lised as being suitable for all types of recordable DVDs I belive you're best using DVD+R & DVD+RW.

The Manual states

Recordable disc

• We strongly recommend for good recording quality:

SONY DVD+RW 4x, MAXELL DVD+R 4x/8x/16x, SONY DVD+R 4x/8x/16x, TDK DVD+R 4x/8x/16x,

MAXELL DVD-RW 4x, MAXELL DVD-R 8x/16x

• Discs that have been tested and are proven to be compatible with this recorder:

VERBATIM DVD+RW 4x VERBATIM DVD+R 8x
VERBATIM DVD-RW x VERBATIM DVD-R 8x JVC DVD-RW 4x MAXELL DVD-R 16x

Error code E 4 54040990


jamesgranger - I think your DVD recorder is still having trouble reading the DVD+RW. It should not have a problem using a DVD+RW many times. Try taking the DVD+RW and put it in your computer. Find it in Explorer, right-click and choose "Erase". Then try to record to it using the DVD recorder again. If it works, you can use this to record, though it might be a pain.

The fact that your machine will record to the +R means that it works. Failing to work (record or erase) on the +RW means it's not reading it well. I would try running the lens cleaner again if it were mine. Also, I would make sure that the unit didn't have a lot of dust in it. If you can, power it off and use some spray-air to be sure there's no dust. You may have cleaned the lens, but if there's a lot of dust inside the unit, it will quickly find it's way back to the lens and you'll have the same problem. Michael

Recording Error "Can not record on this disk/E4 54037380


I had that exact same problem. I would record a bunch of dvds with no problems for months and then some and one day it doesn't work. Only this showed up E4 EA03738B. However I've found the solution. Instead of going out and returning the recorder or buying new dvds just purchase a Laser Lense Cleaner. It's a dvd cleaner. Works like a charm.

Dvd do not record


The unit is saying that its an "Un-format disc" problem. Is this the only error code you are getting? Also, what types of DVDs are being used? As in, DVD-R DVD-RW DVD+R DVD-RW and what speeds? 1x 2x 4x 8x 16x?

Failure to record


I had the same problem on my Philips 3400. Changing media worked. Try RW media if R does not work.
