Question about Zenith XBR413 DVD Recorder

Open Question

We have the Zenith XBR413 recordable DVD / VCR combo. We've had it for many years and recorded many DVDs with no problem. Now when we try to record from VHS or directly from the TV we receive a disc error message. It will record for a while, perhaps a minute or so, and then the timer stops moving and after a few moments the disc error message comes up. We are using the same DVD-R discs that we have always used. We've also tried different disc brands but it doesn't seem to matter if it is an expensive brand or a cheap one.

usually in the menu you will see an option called "finalise" chose this option for every recorded dvd aftre you have finish recording and this will close the disc and make it capable of playing on other systems. Hope that this helps

After doing all recording, go to DVD menu (use Home button on remote, then choose Disc Manager) and FINALIZE it.

This is basically a repeat of the answer above, I just wanted to emphasize it.

Thanks to this question and answer, they were very helpful to me.

I don't know if this will work but try entering four 0 (zeros) first. If it doesn't work enter as many 0 (zeros) that you can and see if that works. Hope this helps :)

I have a Zenith XBR413 dvd/vcr recorder. Just bought some Memorex DVD+RW blank discs to do some recording. When I put the disc in the recorder it says "Unknown disc - check disc again" and pops the disc...


You may need dvd- disks instead! ( it usually one or the other!) and if your player does take a DVD+ you might have to change brands of disks ( I know this sounds stupid but all disks are not created equal! and do not work in all players!

Zenith XBR411 DVD Recorder/VCR Combo Problem


I have the XBR616 zenith combo.
If your dead set on initializing your dvds, I can try to
do one in my dvd player to see if it works, then send it back to you. I can't guarantee anything, my player is a bit fussy, but I don't mind helping you.

If so, let me know

you have to finalize the disc first.once it is finalized you can not record any more material on it,so make sure you record everything you want on a disc. you can maximize disc space by changing speeds on the dvd recorder. for example: if you have 5 hrs of stuff on a tape, set the dvd recorder for 6 hrs or more recording time.the quality should be ok [depends on how good of quality you want] if you set the speed for 2 hrs, your quality would be better, but obviously everything won't fit.
hope this helps

Don't copy


If the VCR tape has copy protection on it, I could see it doing this.
