You can try a dvd+r disc. Borrow one before buying a stack of them.

The other thing is that you may not have enough free space left to burn the finalization track; 7 1/2 hours is a lot of recordings.

Give the +R disc a try even though it says it can't use them in your documentation, a lot of users report it works anyway.

DVD-RW discs are ideal for temporary video recording and data backup, but they are not recommended for successful finalising, as there is no guarantee that the disc will work in another device.

Have you tried using DVD-R discs? these CAN be recorded in video mode AND finalised for compatible playback in other players. I assume the DMR-ES30V is a DVD/VCR combo unit - if so, the DVD recorder will not recognise RW discs; only DVD-RAM and DVD-R.

DVD-R discs are recommended for video recording and finalising in this model. (later model Panasonic DVD recorders allow RW disc recording).

Try a different brand of blank dvd+r or -r. you will find that your dvd machine is fussy on what discs it plays. More exspensive dvd players are fussy with what dvd discs you put in, as cheaper dvd players would virtualy play most types of dvds.

My Dad recorded all his VHS tapes and made DVD's on the Panasonic DVD Recorder DMR-ES30V and now they wont play on any DVD player except for the DMR-ES30V. I believe he recoreded them with a lock so they...


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

My compliments to the foresight of your father. Your described concern is not caused by a "lock". It is indicative that the recording session was not 100% completed. Rather than 'crack', what is required is the final step in the recording. All the DVDs must be "finalized" in the same machine that recorded the movies, the Panasonic DVD Recorder DMR-ES30V. The finalize option would be in the MENU/Settings and must be enabled. Finalization per disc would take some time.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Since both are record capable:
  • hook the Video and Left/Right Audio OUT of the DMR-ES30V to one of the composite/matching INPUT of the DMR-EX88;
  • use the DMR-ES30V as a player and the DMR-EX88;
  • to be able to watch and monitor the output, temporarily hook up the OUTPUT of the DMR-EX88 to the INPUT of the TV.

PANASONIC DVD RAM DISC RECORDING


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

To my knowledge the only basic requirement to play a recorded disc into another machine (even of the same brand) is that the disc must be finalized. The recorder must be instructed that no further recording is intended and that the recorded disc wold be in use externally (some other standalone player).

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

I have three Panasonic DVD recorder/Vhs combos and I get the same problem from time to time...it may be the disks you are using.  Mine absolutely hate Sony disks.  I have the best luck with TDK or Maxell.  You also must clean your unit frequently, if you do alot of recording.  I use my units daily.

Hope this helps
