If you are using a Sylvania DV220SL8 DVD Player \ VCR combo (which this question is posted under the heading of) there is a very simple reason why you can't format DVD-RW disks. DVD Players can't do that. You need a DVD Recorder to format DVD's.

This applies to all comments under this heading as well. You can not record if the unit you're using does not have that capability. And this unit does not have it. You can record with the VHS VCR, but the DVD Player is just that... A Player. It's not a Recorder.

My Philips DVD Recorder does not accept a DVD disc shows no disk. The DVD disc does not revolve. A CD disc revolves but shows junknown


Could be that you are using the wrong type of DVD ? There are two formats DVD+R, DVD+RW etc and DVD-R, DVD-RW etc. Some machines are capable of using either, others can use one of the two formats.
My other suggestion is that some machines are picky about which manufacturer's DVDs they will use.

DRIVERS

Go to the website for the DVD Maker and download the latest drivers.
No reason this won't correct the problem.
Don't go to Sony unless they made the DVD burner.

It sounds like your drive is having issues, you can always install windows 7 from a flash drive (so long as your computer supports booting to one). Instructions on setting this up are here: http://www.intowindows.com/how-to-install-windows-7vista-from-usb-drive-detailed-100-working-guide/ You will need to do this from a computer with a working DVD drive to transfer the info to a flash drive.

Can these disk be re write or erased? Please send me an email via [email protected] Corrington Maycock


Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. The CD is not a Rewritable disk you can only burn once. If you need a DVD or CD that can be rewrite or erase look for DVD-RW or CD-RW.

Thanks for using Fixya

Cd/dvd isnt recognized in windows xp


There are many compatibility issues still with CD/DVD formats and disk drive manufacturer's.
Check the format of the disk (CD-RW, CD+RW, etc...)
Sounds like the drive isn't recognizing the format this disk was written in. Google CD/DVD format types for a better understanding.
