My toshiba SER0298 keeps rejecting new DVD-RW saying it cannot record to this disc however if the disc already has recordings on it it records quite happily


It may have a partial recording on it and needs to be "formatted" to empty it.
Same fault can happen if you try to use a disc thats been "finalized"

I am trying to record with a sony dvd-r disc and the recorder don't recognize it. the only disc that works is the dvd ram 4.7 but that disc does not work on other standard dvd players. what is the answer?


According to the official description of that recorder, you should have no problem, this is from the description for the DMRES15:

Recordable DVD Media


Record your favorite shows onto DVD-RW, DVD-R, DVD+RW, and DVD-RAM DVD discs. The DMR-ES15 is also compatible with DVD+R Double layer media and provides up to 14 hours of media recording.

Multi-Format Player


Don't worry about limited playback capabilities, the DMR-ES15 can play DVD, DVD-RW (VR Mode), DVD-RW (Video Mode), DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD+RW, DVD-RAM, VCD and CD-DA discs. Also, you can play your favorite songs from CDs or MP3 files, and JPEG images.

Samsung DVD recorder will play but not record blank discs


Had mine into the repair shop. Junk it, processor is toast. Not worth the money to fix. The guy said he wouldn't even touch it.

Wont record only on dvd+rw


Sorry but your laser is going! +R disks need a slightly higher burn power. Eventually you will have the same fault for RW disks.

When should I use a DVD-R / DVD-RAM / DVD-RW?


Write Once – After finalizing, a DVD-R disc can be played back in approx. 95% of home DVD players and PC DVD drives Capacity – 30-60 minutes (depending on the selected filming mode) of high quality motion video can be stored on a single of a disc. Re-writeable – DVD-RAM allows for recording and re-recording of movies and still photos up to 100,000 times per disc. DVD-RAM is like a removable hard drive. Compatibility for video playback of DVD-RAM in standard home DVD players is fairly low. DVD-RW cannot store true .jpeg digital still photo’s like DVD-RAM, however it is re-writable and has 80% compatibility with home DVD players.
