I bought an LVC-9006, the VHS/DVD combo. Haven’t tried copying any tapes yet, am mostly recording from TV. Many disks are going bad.
I’ve been recording in 6-hour mode, usually an hour or two at a time. Sometimes I take the disk out, but not always. The one today worked fine the first two nights I recorded on to it. But when I turned on the machine tonight to program something new, the disk wouldn’t load.
I also had one disk get a write error while I was recording (after the first time). It just stopped, and I couldn’t see anything on the disk.
I have a friend who bought one at the same time who is having the same problem.
How do we save these disks? Do we need to download some kind of upgrade? What causes them to go bad?
