I get the same message. But to be honest I'm lucky if it gets to 20%. The unit is so tempermental it's ridiculous.

I have Mavica CD-350. All of a sudden when I attempt to format a new disc or re-format over an old one, the format process gets to the end and then beeps with the message "format error" After...


The camera may display a FORMAT ERROR if the inserted media is not formatted or if the media was formatted on a computer. This error may also display if the inserted media is not supported by the camera.
Please make sure that you're using either CD -R disc which does not require formatting or CD -RW disc.
If you're using any other discs like CD +RW, CD+R may arise the error message.
If the issue persists with a new different CD -R disc, service may be required for the Camera.

I have a camrecorder sony handycam dcr-dvd201 when i insert the new dvd apparear an error message c:13:00 and in the middle of the lcd the symbol of the disc breaking and the eject.


From the user manual on page 6, this camcorder can only use DVD-RW or DVD-R DVDs (It can't use DVD+R, DVD+RW, etc).
Take the DVDs that you purchased back and buy the correct type.

Format error when i finalise the disk


If a FORMAT ERROR message is displayed, then the inserted disc is not formatted or it is recorded in a different format not useable by the camcorder. If using a DVD-RW or DVD+RW, format the disc prior to use. Otherwise, use a different disc.

C 13:02 dvd-rw mini disc errors


It's not recommended to format a disc in the Computer and use it in the Camcorder.

It seems that there is an issue with the disc.

The disc should be formatted within the Camcorder itself.

I will forward a link to a page where you can get the information regarding the error message appearing on the LCD screen of the Camcorder.

Says blank DVD-RW is not formatted, then formats -- then error


I have same TOSHIBA D-VR4XSU VCR/DVD RECORDER. According to the
manual, you (COULD) can use for recording: DVD-RAM, DVD-RW and DVD-R (see page 50). WRONG!!! I bought all 3 types of discs, but after few
weeks I got same experience you got now. Just type DVD-R works. The other
types were - wasted money and a lot of time trying to finalize the disc. I had to
throw all into the garbage. Try DVD-R and you should?? be O.K.

DVD will not load/format new disk


I have got exactly the same problem. Thought I had found some discs that worked as the first one formatted, since then all have come up with that crappy error protection message. Samsung really should sort this out.

I have a JVC DR-MH50 DVD/HD recorder and it will only record on DVD-R or DVD-RW not DVD+R or +RW. so check your format of disk you are trying to record on it may be as simple as that.
