Question about Cyberhome DVD Recorder - DVR1600

Open Question

I have bought Sony DVD+ discs when I put one in it asks me to format disc. It starts to format goes to 49% stops, on screen it says Blank Disc and on player it says root it then moves to 98% and stops it wont go any further I cant switch it off or eject disc I have to unplug it from mains. I have managed to format 2 discs and record on them ok. I have left it on 98% to see what would happen its now showing disc error. Any suggestions please

I cannot say this with authority, since I own a 1200 model, but from what I've read of that model researching my own it's most likely the power supply. It is repairable if you or someone you know can solder. Here's what I found:

I did pretty much the same to my 1200, replaced two 2200uF caps with 35V versions. Make sure the rated voltage of the new caps is at least 16V! Higher is better. There's also a firmware update for that model, you might want to look into that too. Of course, you can't use it until this is fixed.

SOURCE: I cannot format either dvd-r or rws with this machine.

try a single disk, but make sure format is not (-r or -rw; but +r or+rw )negative is mostly for computers, and positive is mostly for dvds and such; should find single at walgreens or wal-mart.

Asking to format full disc


The simple trick is to put a disc into desktop DVD recorder. If Your DVD will be recognized, then copy all content to another DVD or camera. I've seen it before. Must work. Sincerely.

My ps2 screen says 'insert a playstation or a ps2 format disc


t's not asking for a specific disc, it's asking for a properly formatted PlayStation disc.

This message could mean that any one of several things has happened:
* You are trying to play a Japanese disc on a US PS2, or vice versa
* You are trying to play a game that has been copied onto a CD-R/DVD-R
* Your disc is scratched/dirty/otherwise unreadable
* Your disc isn't a format that the PS2 recognises (i.e. CD, DVD, PS CD-ROM, PS2 CD-ROM, PS2 DVD-ROM, etc)
* Your PS2 is broken

Won't format and or won't read disc


I have a similar problem in that it will not record at all or not record very well.  It has a drive inside like a PC DVD drive called the DVD RAM drive. The horrible clunking (grinding) sound is the disc slipping in the spindle. Unfortunately here in Australia the fix is to replace the whole drive (AU$350)!! 
I have opened it up and tried to adjust the force of the spindle and it works for a while.
Hope somebody has a better solution.
