Cannot record on DVD-RW disc

I have an EWR20V5 Emerson combo VCR DVD player/recorder. In the past I have been able to record on both DVD-R and DVD-RW discs. Recently I have been getting an error message when trying to record on a DVD-RW disc, "cannot record on this disc." How can I fix this problem?

EWR20V5 loads but get "error message" Using Verbatum 4xDVD+RW disc with downloaded pictures from PC using Windows 10. Recorder works and video displayed on other discs.


Unfortunately, the EWR20V5 does not handle DVD +R or DVD +RW discs for recording. It can play back some of these discs, when recorded and finalized on another recording device. However, it may not recognize some DVD +R/+RW discs at all. This recorder recognizes all DVD -R/-RW discs. This is a common manufacturing design for DVD/VCR recorders.

See the first page of the Quick Guide for the EWR20V5 for the disc limitations: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/46971/Emerson-Ewr20v5.html . I hope this helps.

you have to have a dvd RW that says write speed 1x -2x. this is an older dvd. most newer ones are 8-16x speed. Sony makes them and you can get them at most stores. you have to read the back.

No playback


The dvd player does not recognize discs above 2x. I contacted Emerson, they have a software upgrade they will send you for free, but you have to ask for it. I think it gives the player the ability to read up to 8x.

Dvd recorder won't record on DVD-RW disc.


CLEANING THE DISC LENS ? If this unit still does not perform properly although you refer to the relevant sections and to ?TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE? in this Owner?s Manual, the laser optical pickup unit may be dirty. Consult your dealer or an Authorized Service Center for inspection and cleaning of the laser optical pickup unit. FROM EWR20V5 OWNERS MANUAL FUNAI-CORP.COM
