Re: Panasonic DVD Recorder/Player - DMR E51- not able to...
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!)

I have to agree with XELIAM regarding finishing the disk, under the DVD "FUNCTIONS" selection from the remote. I also use the SLYSOFT products to transfer my videos to what ever other mode of video I wish to have, whether iPOD (MP4), or DIVX (AVI) or loads of other options. Slysoft makes a GREAT product
I have now had two Panasonicrecorders
3 years apart and both have gone down with this same fault.
It's a shame as they are a fantastic recorder, I would have thought Panasonic
would have put this right by now. It now 5 years on since I bought my
first one and it sounds as if they still have the same fault.
Why the hell can't they just fit a standard computer dvd drive that’s cheap to
replace, and not this abortion they fit.
I was looking on E-bay for Panasonic recorders that where faulty and found
ALL WITH THE SAME FAULT
"DVD drive faulty"
I’m now looking for a new one but don’t know what to do as I
have a ton of discs that need to be finalized, may just forget about them and
keep clear of Panasonic in future.
sorry to say but both of these sound like loader problems.ie the optics are faulty,you have to replace the full assy called a loader assy when this happens.Panasonic are the only company who offer part exchange tru authorised dealers.ie send back the faulty one and they will give reduced price on new one,.As to other makes see a lot of sonys with optic problems as well so isint just a panasonic problem.You could also try using ordinary dvdrs instead of ram discs as the optic has to work harder when recording and playing ram disc due to information contained.Hope I helped!
