Hello,

how long have you been using the player and has it ever accept blank DVD-R discs in the past.

The problem might be as a result of weak laser (lens) or the blank discs inserted might not be compatible with player.

When the laser(lens) of a player becomes weak, it will not be able to read blank discs. It only takes a very strong laser to read/accept blank discs. If it happens that the laser (lens) is the cause of the problem, then it means you will need to replace the laser (lens) to a brand new one to be able to read blank disc. Though the player might be playing DVD and CD, note that blank disc is stronger when it comes to reading from the laser (lens), it requires sharper laser. I hope you understand this.

Concerning the incompatibility issue, I hope you are aware that there are various kinds of empty DVD discs such as DVD +, DVD -, DVD RW. Try any of this empty DVD discs as one of them as to be compatible with this DVD recorder.

Amongst the two topics discussed above, one has to be the cause of the problem. So its up to you to figure out which is the cause of the problem.

Good luck.

I just purchased new blank Maxell dvd-rw 4.7gb/2hrs. discs and they wouldn't initilize past 8% so I tried re-formatting the disc and now the machine won't recoginize the disc or any disc, even...


Get a CD/DVD laser lens cleaner - the kind with optical quality brushes sticking out of the bottom of the disk. Run this in the player/recorder a couple times. Should clear it up.

You can get them at Best Buy, Radio Shack, online, etc...

EWR20V4 How do I finalize a disc after it's recorded ?


For the EWR20V4, press Setup on the remote then select the Disc menu (with the left/right arrows) and press enter. Select Finalize (using the up/down arrows) and press enter. A confirmation window will pop up, select Yes (left/right arrows) and press enter. Note: finalization takes some space on the DVD so leave room after recording to the disc. The step will take a few minutes. Finalization is permanent except for -RW discs (rewritable) and can only be undone with same unit that finalized the dvd-rw.

The DVD recorder was made by Funai Corp for Emerson. The manual for the unit can be found here: http://www.funai-corp.com/support/manuals.aspx . I found searching for products starting EWR gave several similar models. The direct link is http://www.funai-corp.com/6pdf/om/EWR20V4.pdf .

I hope this helps.

yes all the DVD recorders are very sensitive to what brand is fed to them......go back to your ole faithful Maxell here are 3 sites you can try......J & R music, Amazon.com or Ebay

  1. http://www.jr.com/product/productListing.jsp?Ntt=maxell+dvd+blank
  2. http://www.amazon.com/gp/search/ref=sr_tref_p_brandtextbin_1?rh=n%3A1036658%2Cp_brandtextbin%3AMaxell%2Ck%3Advd+blank+media&keywords=dvd+blank+media&ie=UTF8&qid=1282862945&rnid=15784691
  3. http://shop.ebay.com/i.html?rt=nc&LH_BIN=1&_nkw=maxell+dvd&_trksid=p3286.c0.m301
note if you updated (firmware) your player you may need to purchase the dvd w/ 4x-16 speed..
