Burning dvd

[qanda]This thread is about the Panasonic DVD-Recorder DMR-EH55 S. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]i have a dmr eh55 and an ex 85, both dvd recorders continually reject dvd-r discs at a very high rate. only singuarly packaged dvd,s work without trouble, and also panasonic ram discs.
Why is this happening? Some brands are worse than others.

Have you tried cleaning the spindle? Check out Saint Baz’s thread(should be in the first page of posts) talking about spindle cleaning. It’s generally the problem if you get lots of failed burns or disc problem.

Thank you for the advice, it worked 100%.
The spindles in both recorders were covered in dust.
It saved me a lot of trouble and money, as I was being told my machines were faulty, or the discs were not compatable.
Now they work like new, regardless of brand of disc.

The fact that “single packed” discs worked ok may have been a coincidence. I can even use most of the discs I was about to throw out, which were rejected b4.
