Problem with DVD-RW's

When I insert a brand new DVD-RW, I get an error message that the disk may need to be cleaned or may be damaged. The recorder used to work fine, then would record but not re-record, now it won't even recognize new disks.

I had a very similar problem with my Toshiba D-R2. I found two firmware updates on the Toshiba website. One was called 1314.iso and the other was called 1416.iso. All the instructions are there for how to burn a CD and install it on your DVD recorder. It solved my problems - hope it works for you.

Record errors

If your dvd player only supports dvd+r discs then that is the only way it will record. It will only record once onto the dvd-rw and, since it doesn't support the re-writables, it won't be able to use this function. This is the most likely reason for the first error. The second problem is a little confusing. Is it when you are trying to record on dvd-rs or dvd-rws that it says it can't record? I hope this post was helpful (for the first error, anyway). Good luck! I hope everything works out! Sincerely, Der Strom

Error message e4 54040990

It may mean that the disk is no longer usable due to scratches or other over-use reasons. If a new disk, it may mean you're using the wrong brand. This machine works on recommended brands, and the brand of DVD+RW that has proven to be workable on this device, and that I use with no problems, is VERBATIM. Hope this helps you solve what's wrong.

Recording Error "Can not record on this disk/E4 54037380

I had that exact same problem. I would record a bunch of dvds with no problems for months and then some and one day it doesn't work. Only this showed up E4 EA03738B. However I've found the solution. Instead of going out and returning the recorder or buying new dvds just purchase a Laser Lense Cleaner. It's a dvd cleaner. Works like a charm.

DVD will not load/format new disk

I have got exactly the same problem. Thought I had found some discs that worked as the first one formatted, since then all have come up with that crappy error protection message. Samsung really should sort this out.
