Question about Televison & Video
SOURCE: dvd recorder wont finalize etc
The DVD drive works harder when trying to record the info faster. As the unit ages, tracking is less precise. DVD-R copies occur at 4-16X real time. Try DVD-RW disks which copy slower (now that the price has dropped substantially), and you may find that your aging drive can still copy programs from the HD to the DVD.

Hi, I found this site today cos I had a similar problem. To cut a long story short I found a slot on the bottom of the machine, below the disc tray, that has a white lever in it. After removing the power source I moved the lever to the side and the tray opened manually so I could remove the disc. It seems It was a duff DVDR as other discs now work fine. Good luck !

I tried the stop & eject on my 3460h but didnt work. However the manual option cured it. It must be a dodgy disc as i tried to play it again but the same happened again. Scrapped the disc.

I am so pleased to hear that you have restored the DMR E55 and for taking the trouble to let me know. It's always satisfying to achieve something like that and I guess you'll get even more pleasure from using it now than you did before. They are good machines and well worth the effort to keep them going.
Thanks again and kind regards

SOURCE: Won't recognise DVD disk.
Your system needs a portion of the HDD to swap and stream for the purpose of playing and recording DVDs while CDs are small enough in their data size to play without the minimal size of the space left on your HDD which should be backed up and then erased to give you that brand new feeling.
Try it and get back to me with any problems.
Thanks for asking.
