Question about Panasonic DMR-EH57 HDD Recorder Player
Noone has second opinioned for you?Okay,here you go.If it still reads DVD's at all,the optical eye is NOT shot,you seem to know that also.Try formatting one of the discs on your PC.If it formats there,try recording on your DVD.If it doesn't record,try reformat with your DVD.If it does record,your DVD formatter may have a problem,also if it doesn't record and reformat.Still with me?The formatting and recording funtions are like a software program for a PC,only they are contained within a chip(IC=integrated circuit but trade name is just a chip).If you can format with a PC and record still,you may just want to do that until there are big problems because it would likely cost $70+ to repair,even at a conservative estimate.I will watch to see what happened tomorrow,just comment and I will get an autolink.Good luck,Greg

Only RW can and should be formated. If you get this message when you are using R disks then the optical unit is defective - it can't no longer recognize the disks you inserted. The optical unit can be replaced with a standard pc IDE one, just that to perform this operation you need at least a basic knowledge of electronics - you have dismantled at least a desktop pc and you know how the cable are plugged and where. If you don't have that knowledge then it's time to take the unit to a repair shop.
