    I have a similar problem for the same model. It indicates "Reading" and then stops a 28 %. For the included DVD it goes to 100% but then says "invalid disk". Have tried DVD- R and DVD +R

    I have a PDR-3222 that I use for business. Because I am familiar with the unit , I've tried buying two more on E-bay, both of which have the same problem. When I put in a blank DVD, it reads it up to around 20%, then it either kicks the DVD out or says invalid disk.

    I am recording from a JVC camcorder, onto a memorex DVD-R. It seems to record, and then write to disc just fine. The DVD even plays when I play it on the presidian DVD player. However, when I play the dvd on other players, it says the disc is blank. What am I doing wrong?

Have had the same problem with my Presidian3222 for the last year, if I recorded something it would come back as invalid disc or blank disc or would not close disc out right, got so damn mad almost took a hammer to it last night, unplugged it like clicky said, did no good, thought cable co may have been sending single to screw up recording, but today took camcorder and tried to record something, same thing which seemed to let the cable co off the hook.
the following seemed to have fixed the problem, first open the player then unplug it, close the drawer 1/2 way, then I took compressed air and blew inside the player to clean the laser after that I have been able to record 3 movies and close the disc properly and finalize the disc properly, I even had 50 new disc made by sony that recorded kept saying were invalid, reads them fine now, I hope this helps everyone, because I was on the edge of putting this thing in the trash last night.

`I had the same problem as the last person did, I unhooked it for 5 minutes and plugged it back in and it played fine after doing that so, you might try also restore in the menu section it should work great after that.

Presidian PDR 3222 not recording when record button pressed

I am beginning to think the machine works with slower discs but a firmware update will enable the machine to function with the newer "16x" and other discs. Unfortunately, neither Presidian nor the "real" manufacturer (whose name slipped my mind) seem to currently have the update available on their web sites.

Presidian 3222

I don't know if this will help, but according to the operator's manual I have, on page 64, the only place it mentions "Full" or "Quick" Preparation, is when using a DVD-RW disc. Apparently, with this type of disc, you must use the Full or Quick preparation INSTEAD of Finalizing after you're thru recording onto the disc.
With the DVD-R and DVD+R, all you can do is "Finalize"; With the DVD+RW, if I'm reading this correctly, NIETHER Finalization OR Preparation is required.
But with the DVD-RW, apparently ALL you can do is a "FULL" or "QUICK Preparation.
If you're only getting "Erase or "Finalize" WITH the DVD-RW, then it appears there may be a problem with the machine.
Or, if you're attempting the "FULL or QUICK" Preparation with any disc OTHER than the DVD-RW, all you should get is "erase" or Finalize", since the QUICK or FULL Preparation is not done with discs other than DVD-RWs.

Hope this helps. I'm certainly not an expert on these things....I'm a "Vinyl" type guy.
