SOURCE: Sometimes it can record on DVD-R Sony sometimes it doesn't.

So now I get an e-mail from Fix Ya asking me if I found a solution, if not they offer me a PREMIUM (Charge)Plan to help me solve the problem.

If I have solved my problem they want me to tell them how I fixed it for FREE.

Do you guys at Fix Ya use us as your employees to solve others problems and you collect the money? That is such a shame!

SOURCE: unable to "dub" my 8mm tapes onto DVD-R using my Sylvania DV90VE

From comments posted on the Internet by other Sylvania users with a similar problem, I  learned that I had to use a 4X DVD-R (the ones I had been trying to record on were 16X). And I found that Office Depot sells the sometimes hard-to-find 4X format, so that's where I'm headed right after lunch.  Thanks.

Sony RDRGXD455 have tried both DVD-RW and DVD+RW discs from Phillips and they do not work. I have tried VR and Video modes. Do you think Verbatim DVD-RW discs would work?


It depends on what you are trying to record on them. These machines have copy protection built in. So if they detect that they won't let you record on the disc.

Can you tell me some specific Brands of DVD-R or DVD-RW blank disks? I have tried several and cannot find many that will work with my Sylvania SRDV495.


There are no specific brands, however Verbatim are widely considered the best. Your, problem, however, is unlikely the brand of the media and more likely the recording speed of the media. Most blank DVD's on the market are 16x or faster and your machine (c. 2005) doesn't support anything faster than 4x. When I was reading the manual it referred to the "state of the art" 8x discs that the machine didn't have the ability to support. The discs you need are available and often are labeled as 2x - 4x meaning that they will support any drives that burn at a 2x - 4x spin rate. Also, be sure that you are not purchasing DVD+R and DVD+RW as they are not compatible with your unit.

When trying to record a home video VHS to DVD this is what I get. E-4 54040990 Cannot record on this disc. The disc is brand new.


Have you've tried cleaning the laser with a cleaning disc?

Failing this it may be worth removing the cover and cleaning the lens directly with a QTip and some lens cleaning fluid. Only use a drop and then wipe off with a clean dry QTip.

The other option is that you are using an incompatible format of blank DVDs. I've heard of people having problems using DVD-R & DVD-RW and although it is lised as being suitable for all types of recordable DVDs I belive you're best using DVD+R & DVD+RW.

The Manual states

Recordable disc

• We strongly recommend for good recording quality:

SONY DVD+RW 4x, MAXELL DVD+R 4x/8x/16x, SONY DVD+R 4x/8x/16x, TDK DVD+R 4x/8x/16x,

MAXELL DVD-RW 4x, MAXELL DVD-R 8x/16x

• Discs that have been tested and are proven to be compatible with this recorder:

VERBATIM DVD+RW 4x VERBATIM DVD+R 8x
VERBATIM DVD-RW x VERBATIM DVD-R 8x JVC DVD-RW 4x MAXELL DVD-R 16x

I'm unable to find DVD discs that will record in my machine. I was using Maxell DVD+RW 4x but am not able to find them. If it says "up to 4x" it will not work. If I buy Memorex 4x, they won't work. I saved...


I have found that the DVD recorder in this unit will not recognize a DVR+R disc greater than 8X speed. Therfore 16X discs are not an option. Like you already know, it likes DVD+RW 45X speed discs but it is selective. I have been using Maxell DVD+RW 4x and have found that Verbatim DVD+RW 4X and Sony DVD+RW 4X work just as well.

I have an error 25 on my dvd recorder


Technically, E25 is a copy-protection error, but I have some additional background on this issue. On the one hand, it could be a legitimate copy-protection error - you are trying to record from a copy-once or copy-protected source - this is especially true if you are trying to record from a Cable/Satellite Box that has a DVR box - since copying to the DVR is considered the first "copy," the Magnavox will not allow you to make a "second" copy.

On the other hand, Magnavox/Funai players see all programs recorded in V mode (as opposed to VR mode) as "copy-prohibited". It records all +R discs in VR mode automatically, so the solution in this case would be to record on a compatible -R disc (or vice versa).

There are two simple fixes for this issue in either case:
1) If you are using a +R disc, switch to a -R disc. If you are using a -R disc, switch to a +R disc. Simply switching the disc type will "fix" Magnavox recorders (long story).
2) If your TV has a "Video Out" or "Monitor Out" (most TV's don't), you can connect a yellow video cable from the OUT of the TV to the Video IN on the back of the Magnavox. This will permanently resolve your problem by fooling the recorder.

Here is additional info about the type of disc to get:

HR 720 does not burn to DVR -R media


Hallo everybody,

this guy "mysus" is a genius! I have had above problem on a Samsung HR-725 (160 Gb Version of the HR-720) now for approx. 1 year. I´ve called the Samsung Hotline and tried other dealers - nothing worked. Today I came accross this help and tried it out immediately - and it works perfectly. However, you do need to know a little about PCBs and electronics.
I used a variety of different -R DVDs and they all seem to work now. Many thanks once again for this fantastic link.

Can't record DVDs


OK. Finally "solved" this problem. You must use the brand name "Maxell" DVD disks, 2x or 4x (maybe 8x). Do not use variable speed disks (e.g. 1x--4x) or 16x. Walmart carries these!

The DVR -RW 2x finally got mine to record. I didn't think this would work, but it did. I am still experimenting with it. Had to download (free) VLC player to get it to play on my computer. Works fine in other DVD players.

Credits to the Sears' repairman, the guy at F., and my patience!

The manual says to press the display button (just below the eject button) on the remote. This worked for me.
