SOURCE: DVD recorder has stopped recording

Make sure the DVD-R is 8x or SLOWER. They are difficult to find these days. The unit will not not give any specific warning when a faster disc is used, it just doesn't work. The burner is simply an IDE drive, so it is upgradeable, should you wish to risk that route.

SOURCE: DVD -R finalizing

using a dvd+r with 1-16x speed is not advisable for this recorder. It may work but in the long run may cause some trouble. check the manual for compatible disc. it will give you hints on what disc to buy and use. Unfortunately this unit is only compatible with dvd+r dvd-r that are 8x speed or slower. hope this helps.

what happened was that you probably chose a disc speed on the DVD that was too fast or slow for the dvd players that you are putting it in to. Try re recording it but when under the DVD section, on your remote, choose REC Mode till it says SP. That one should work on just about any dvd player. I had the same problem with mine. Here is a step by step instruction on how to dub from VHS to DVD correctly. If you follow all the steps, you should be fine :) http://angrytechblog.com/2011/02/how-to-one-touch-dub-vhs-to-dvd-on-the-sony-rdr-vx525/
