Question about Televison & Video
The recorder will not recognize a disc when inserted for recording. It indicates that a new disc has been inserted and that it needs to be formatted but then it says the disc is damaged and unuseable. I have tried a variety of brand names of DVD+R and DVD+R/W and I get the same results. I can take the same disc and record on it with my DVD writer on my computer. The player plays CD and DVD ok but will not record. - Solution?
i do not have this problem however recently my DVD simply would not turn on, i unplugged it for a few minutes and it now works. my complaint right now is that one of the discs is now coming up as unformatted and when i try to format it, it cannot be done. the other 2 discs are fine (as this one once was also!)

This just worked for me. Don't know how long it will last though. I found it on this webpage
To do a reset:
On the remote control press the SETUP button,
Press the right key on the remote 3 times,
The Preference page will show up,
Press the down arrow five time to highlight
"default", hit right arrow to highlight "reset"
Press enter to reset. Turn off/on machine, etc.

my suggestion from reading other forums is that these players sometimes have problems finalizing the disc.. you could try making a copy of the disc in a computer to see if this fixes the promlem or maybe media these use dvd+r and has a lot of compatibility issues with dvd players.
