Question about Toshiba DRW2 DVD Recorder

D-KR2 writes bad disks

I have a Toshiba D-KR2 that has no problem playing pre-recorded disks. But anything I try to record on the Toshiba ends up displaying the massage "bad or scratched disk". Sometimes, the Toshiba ccompletes the recording and then provides this message when I attempt a playback. Other times it will refuse to record to a disk claiming the disk is bad. And then every once in a while it works OK. I've popped the supposedly defective disks into my computer drive and run an analysis program on them and the program reports the disks are fine. I've tried TDK DVD-Rs, DVD-RWs and Philips DVD-Rs and get the same result. I ran a 3M Laser Lens cleaner in the Toshiba and it didn't help. Any suggestions of what my problem might be or where I should go from here ? Richard

I have one mds e 11 end dont record .apears protect on the display

Most likely you have the tab in the minidisc set to protect preventing the recorder from recoding on the disk C11 is the same as Protected.

Slide the notch on the minidisc to the other side to record. You cannot record on pre recorded minidiscs. You have to remove the disc from the recorder to do this.

If you open theprotect tab the recorder may write over what you already have on the minidisc.

Finalizing the DVD

Well this sounds like the disk was removed too fast from the camera before it had ended writing, you need to stop filming, wait at least 1 minute then remove disk because it ends the disk write not you yourself.

Dmr-ES30V Dvd plays pre record movies fine but I

Try a different brand of blank dvd+r or -r. you will find that your dvd machine is fussy on what discs it plays. More exspensive dvd players are fussy with what dvd discs you put in, as cheaper dvd players would virtualy play most types of dvds.

Unit will play pre-recorded dvd's but when trying to record on any blank dvd disc it say's read then preparing and then invaid disc ?

Older DVD players (as well as some lower end products) will not play computer recorded disks. Another option may be which DVD are you recording on. DVD+R or DVD-R. Some players will only play one version. (usually -R I believe). Or could be a problem with youtr authoring program. Try a different program and/or type of DVD Recordable disk.

Vidio recorder when i record it wont play back what is recorded but it will play pre recorded tapes Is it campatable for LG television please model no VR550/07

If it plays back pre recorded tapes then there is nothing wrong with that section of the unit. Does it playback audio and not picture or does it not playback anything.
Also, when trying to playback a recording what is seen of the screen? Snow(black and white dots or wiggly picture?

The unit uses two separate circuits to record and playback tapes. Is any thing else connected to the unit while you are recording? If you are using anything plugged into other ports on the recorder it may not see the camera input causing it to not record anything..

My dvd recorder keeps ruining blank dvd+r's.

I have suffered the same problems as you describe here. What I believe is this unit suffers from inadequate ventilation. After having this problem I examined the unit and noticed it was hot. What I've done is put 2 small flat blocks on each side of the unit, to basically suspend it so that it can get airflow under and over it, now staying much cooler. Nearly all problems now have gone away. Seldomly, I find it will still exibit the problems mentioned. Frankly the only solution I've found from there is to unplug it for a short while and, upon plugging it back in, and trying again it works flawlessly.
