    Not able to burn from HDD to DVD.

    When machine goes to burn, process starts for a couple of seconds,then closes down and self check appears. Have tried different discs, all -r (not from the same batch) and different recorded programmes. Recording to HDD still seems fine.

    Yeah, same problem here, as well. I have used the very same DVD (DVD-R) as usual, but when starting the "Dubbing" it goes to SELF CHECK mode and does nothing. The direct recording from the set-top box were successfull onto the DVD....

    Is there any software/firmware patch we are not aware??

    Thankx

I was having the same problem and tried many different types of DVD-R (16x, 8x, even 4x thining speed might be the problem) finally went to the web page and downloaded the updated program. When I put that download into the disk drive the machine read it and the problem went away. Had not been able to use high speed before that either but it worked after the updated program was in it.

Rec from hdd to disc


Only use one of the disc types that is listed in the manual that they have actually tested on unit. If the HDD recordings were made in HQ mode, then you will only be able to fit a one-hour or less recording on a DVD. You cannot reverse this at this point. For future HDD recordings, set the record mode to 4hr or higher.

Stays in self check mode


If self check keeps going after 1 minute unplug machine and open top cover remove 4 screws that hold the recorder top cover remove disk reinsert screws and plug in see what happens.

Most of the time a small scratch or fingerprint on recorded disk cause these units to lock up

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.

Downloading from hdd to dvd+r ?


When you recorded your "footage" was the dvd recorder set to 2hr (sp), 2.5hr (spp), or 3hr (LP), etc.?Because for example, you downloaded (recorded to your hdd)your "footage" that is say 3hrs long, and your recorder is set to record at 2hrs mode(sp), then when you put a blank dvd in recorder to transfer from hdd to blank dvd, the 3hrs of your "footage" has been recorded in 2hr mode on your hdd, and will only record in 2hr mode onto your blank dvd. Solution is to set your recorder to the record mode in which your "footage" length is. For example, if your "footage" length is 3hrs, set your recorder mode to LP then when you insert your blank dvd should be okay. Or, set your recorder mode to 2hr (sp) and make two recordings of your "footage" onto hdd, splitting them up: 2hr on one, and 1hr on the other.When you burn to blank dvd you will have to have 2 blank dvds, one for 2hrs, the other for 1hr. I had to same thing happen to me. I hope this works for ya.
