Question about Pioneer DVR533HS DVD Recorder with 80GB Hard Drive
Is there an easy way to upgrade firmware so I can use newer blank DVD-R discs...I've tried 3 brands and when I copy from HDD to DVD it ends up in error? Help!!
I have had much luck recording on off brand 16X discs as follows:
1) Record a "dummy" program on the hard drive, need only about 15 or 20 seconds.
2) Put a blank disk in drive, and COPY that dummy program to disk. Do not finalize.
3) After a minute or so, window will come up and say "Cannot
4) Now while above window on screen, click HOME MENU, COPY, New program list, Select your movie/program to copy, go ahead and finalize, and START.
5) Think you'll find this is successful, however there might be some brands of blank disks that won't work.
6)Let me know if it works for ya. JGIDUSKO@CFL.RR.COM
