I've had my Emerson EWD2004 for a couple years now and just finally tried to record from my camcorder to the dvd. I put in a DVD-R and it says cannot record to this type of disc. I then tried a DVD-RW with same response. On the front of the player it says -R/RW. Am I using the right kind of DVD's? Maybe the recorder is no good. I can't find the manual and would appreciate any input. Thanks

As far as I know, this isn't a universal remote. It only controls the DVD/VCR recorder. If the above manual page doesn't match your remote, please double-check the model number. Please add a comment with the manufacturer and the model number if you need additional help.
I noticed that too with my "VR" (and NOT "Video") formatted disks. I don't think you can finalize the VR ones. Instead you have to use the Sony Import tool to grab the videos. If you are like me you probably remember using the import tool with Video formatted disks BEFORE finalizing them and it takes forever to copy them. They must be finalized to view on other devices, copy using the import tool quicker, etc., but VR formatted disks seem optimized for importing (and can be edited on the camcorder directly.
Some DVD players can't read -R & -RW disks. When you finalize make sure it is in Video mode not VR mode so the recorded disk will be able to work in most other DVD players. Also some DVD players only read recorded disks rated up to 1x, 4x, 8x, 16x, or a combination of these speeds.
