Question about Sony VRD-VC10 DVD±RW Dual Layer Burner

1 Answer

VRD-VC10 says "format mismatch"

I am trying to record from a video recording device onto a DVD via the VRD-VC10. Each time I press record, the display stays "Ready" for a moment, then declares, "Format Mismatch." I have tried different DVDs, SYNC and non-SYNC modes; nothing seems to work. How can I fix this problem?

    I can try DVD-R, but I was told, and the manual says, that it works only with DVD+R or DVD+RW. Will DVD-R damage the recorder in any way? Additionally, the manual lists nothing about the message "Format Mismatch." Any ideas? Thanks for your help.

Check the manual - some DVD recorders could only handle certain brands of disks, and most will not handle Dual Layer types. Try Sony brand DVD-R disks (4.7G)

Own a sony dvd recordable drive (VRD-VC10but for some reason the blank disc reads ''NO DISC''.


something wrong with the processing unit on you drive causing it not to communicate with the pc. best bet is to replace it with a new drive.

Burn dvd from vhs


i'm assuming you have a vcr to play your vhs tapes, just plug your audio/video cord from your vcr(out), plug into the audio/video vc10(in), start playing vcr and press rec botton whenever you want to start to record. make sure you can only use dvd+r. choose the quality for the length of time, at the end press 'function' to finalize the disc, then you are done.

Sony vrd-vc10 drive door


Davidxjohn
Right on the drive you will find a small hole, take a pin and press it a little bit, it will open up the DVD tray for you. Sometimes the drives are just locked by some software, this is the best way to release your stuck cd or dvd.

Hope that helped!
