Re: my classic DVR100 will not read DVD+R
There may be a problem with burning format. If you burn your own DVDs then try burning at the lowest speed and try again. Also not all players can play every media. The best solution is to try another DVD. This statement can be found in the player manual.

if the other 4 dvds are still wrapped take it back (in exchange for 4x 4.7gb dvd-rw)...you picked up 1.2x your player maybe looking for higher speed..these recorders are very sensitive for the type of dvds it use..(i can only use maxell /panasonic + dynex (online))..cant use some of those on sale ones.....my recorder wont just eject it it rejects,,,,
hope this is your case, feel free to rate the help
you were saying some? and not all the cds and dvds? it may be that those other discs are unreadable anymore caused by scratches, marks, or the like. if other discs can be read then the player is all good. also check what file format you are trying to play. it may also be that the file format you are playing is not compatible with the program you are using to play it with like windows media player, media classic, etc.
yes, most of the dvd recorders are like that. you must read the user guide to find the correct dvd brand to use. i have a toshiba (i can only use maxell, (best) tdk ,dynex (good) and memorex (Ok)) fuji sony pansonic will not record nor play.
I had the same problem and after reading and trying allot of disks I found the following to work.
Maxell - RW disk. Did a complete format on my computer (takes a while).
Burned a DVD using Vista DVD burner with only a Jpg as per one of the
other posts. Once the disk plays. Stop and goto disk management and
format using DVD-V (VR did not work).
I know its not pretty but at least its better than throwing it in the garbage bin.
I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM WITH MY LG DVD RECORDER NOT EXCEPTING CERTAIN RECORDABLE DISCS .
NO GUARANEES BUT TRY GOING TO YOUR SETUP MENU AND RE-SET THE ORIGINAL FACTORY SETTINGS FOR THE RECORDER THEN PUT A DVD CLEANER DISC IN YOUR RECORDER TAKES ABOUT TWO MINS TO CLEAN UNIT THEN
TRY A BRAND THAT DOES WORK IN YOUR RECORDER OTHER THAN VERBATIM OR MAXEL . RECORD SOMETHING THEN EJECT IT . NOW TRY ONE OF YOUR MAXEL OR VIBATIM DISCS AND SEE IF IT WILL READ THIS TIME FOR RECORDING . GOOD LUCK .

Provided you check that what you are buying is DVD-R or DVD-RW (as opposed to +R or +RW), it should work.
Best thing is probably to buy one or two and see how you get on.
There's not many places make DVDs - and an awful lot of badge engineering goes on. You could download a useful bit of freeware from http://dvd.identifier.cdfreaks.com/ to help you find out which factory your Maxell discs have come from - and which of your cheap alternatives actually hail from the same stable.
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.
