Depending on the formats of the discs you tried, and assuming they are the correct ones for this machine, it sounds very much like a defective DVD drive and/or software within the unit. If it is under warranty take it to an authorised service agent/workshop for assessment to see if it needs a new drive or not. If it isn't reading any discs, and the unit is brand new, it would most likely be the drive which would be at fault.

I have 2 PANA DMR-EZ48V recorders. Most of the DVD problems are due to the 'laser' being dirty. It's easy to fix !!

1) Remove top cover (2 screws L & R and 3 rear)
2) Remove top cover of DVD drive (4 screws) and lift off from rear.
3) Clean 'laser' with a SOFT Q-TIP using alchohol ... tape head cleaner works well ... and buff dry with other end of Q-TIP. MAKE SURE NOT TO USE MUCH PRESSURE WHEN DOING THIS !!!!!
4) While you're at it, clean out any dust or dirt and make sure that the 2 chrome shafts are lightly lubricated.
5) Clean disc spindle with remaining solution on Q-TIP.
6) Put it all back together and plug it in !!!

I've had to do this just about once a year, and it seems to work for me.

When I insert a blank DVD+R to copy a VHS, It reads the disk, says "Unknown Disk" and ejects it. How do I record if I can't keep a disk in the machine?


some discs don't work in some recorders. I always use verbatim, ritek or tdk discs and have very few problems. if the recorder suddenly dislikes a batch of one brand, I'll use one of the others.
