Whenever I put in a DVD-RAM, it says "UNFORMAT" then if I try to format it won't allow me to, saying "contents are protected etc.." Disc Protection is also "ON". The thing is, this happens for newly bought discs fresh out of their wrapping! Any ideas?
1. Try Panasonic DVD-RAM, format that on the recorder, donot finalize
2. Try this

If a CD is write-protected, it means that it is closed. Or possobly not formatted. [[CD-R stands for Compact Disc-Recordable and can be recorded only once. You may continue to add files until the CD is full as long as the disc is not closed (write-protected). You cannot delete, rename, rearrange, or alter the files or file structure on the CD after recording.]] Open CD: [[If a CD is open, it means that further information can be added to it. It is not write protected.]]
Closed CD: [[If a CD is closed, it is permanently write-protected. No further information can be added to the disc. Closing a CD is analogous to moving the write-protect tab on a floppy disc to the write-protect position. However, unlike floppies, you can only change the write-protect setting on a burned CD once. Once the disc is write-protected (closed), this setting is permanent.]] You can try this one:There is this program called sound taxi it is suppose to remove write protection. link is here http://www.soundtaxi.us/download.html
Copy content from your DVD to the HDD (hard drive) - then copy content from HDD back to a blank disk. Will not copy protected DVD's. You can also download another intruction booklet for it from the Lite0n website.
