I've used this unit a lot in the last four years, but have only tried a few different DVD-RW's & -R's. Mostly I've had success with Maxell DVD-RW's, mixed results with Memorex -RW's, & so far Fuji -RW's have been just fine. I think these brands of -R's should work too. The Maxell's have gotten hard to find, but I was happy with my order of Fuji's from TotalMedia.com. I've only recently learned that you need to heed the manual & use a DVD lens cleaner disc every 10 hours or so -- apparently even a mote of dust on the laser lens can destroy your recordings, or at least will cause unwatchable skips! Good luck --

RECORDED DISCS NOT PLAYING BACK ON OTHER DEVICES


Did you finalize the disc on the DVD recorder that burned the file? Without more information on your DVD recorder, I can't give you exact directions to find the command on your unit. On my DVD/VCR, after recording, I usually finalize a disc before removing it from the recorder. On mine, I press Menu and go to Disc. I add a title (optional) and then select the Finalize option. Then accept the finalization (which makes it impossible to add more to the disc). For -RW discs, you can unfinalize and then reformat them. Write once discs are permanently stored.

What type of disc did you record to? Some other players may not recognize DVD+R or DVD-R discs or DL discs. Check the specs on the other players and try different brands/types of discs for future recording.

If you add a comment with the type of DVD recorder used to burn the problem discs, I may be able to give additional advice.

Disc say cant record,what disc do i buy


This model (PY90DG) DVD recorder supports the following disc recording formats: DVD+RW/DVD-RW/DVD+R/DVD-R for everyday video. These should record fine. The RW discs are for repeated recording/erasure while the R discs are once-only recording types - the R discs must be finalised in this deck to make them playable on other DVD players. DVD-RAM discs are NOT supported by this unit. This recorder will play MP3 files on a CD-R or CD-RW (not DVD-ROM) just fine as well, but will not record them.

Best discs to buy for this type of recorder are DVD-R (recommended brand - Verbatim or TDK if you can get them, but not Memorex). These are OK.

CyberHome DVD 1600 won't record to Sony disk


I believe the recorder is bad, it should be able to accept all brands and types of disks. You might want to try another brand and type of disk just to make sure, if it does not work, the recorder is bad. Good luck to you!

I'm having problems formatting discs for Panasonic EZ47 DVD recorder. Keep getting "formatting unsuccessful" message.


Now here are the types of DVDs that you can record to DVD-RAM, DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW, DVD+R, DVD+R DL, DVD-R DL
Now the only types that you can format are DVD-RAM, DVD-RW, DVD+RW
So first make sure you are not trying to format the wrong type of DVD. If you are using the correct type then you might want to try a different brand. Sometimes certain brands of DVDs have problems with certain players. You can also try updating your player's firmware and see if that corrects the problem also.

Every disk I put in to record something says bad disk


Hi,

There's very little information about your problem, like model and disks you are using. I can give you general information.

All DVD's doesn't work will all types of recorders.

DVD Types:
  1. DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW, DVD-RAM, DVD-ROM, DVD+ROM.
For More In-Deph detail of DVD Formats, Enter Here.

Check what types of disk your equipment uses. Maybe needs lens cleaner or is a equipment malfunction. If it reads, then most likely is in good shape. From my experience, I have two DVD recordable setup boxes. But one only accepts DVD-RAM and the other accepts DVD+Recordables and ReWritables.

If this can't help, you can post more detail about your equipment.
