The DMR-ES15 works fine and dandy with a brand new blank DVD+RW , it writes to it , reads it and is able to fomat it many times over…
So here is what happens… I put in a brand new BLANK disk, the DMR-ES15 prompts me to format it, I choose yes, and it formats it and all is well. Once I record the show I want to keep to the disk, I finalize it and eject it. I then take the DVD+RW to my pc and rip the show from the disk.
I take the disk and put it back in the DMR-ES15 and the DMR-ES15 says it is unformatted??? So I try and format the disk using the DMR-ES15. And it sounds like its working and tells me “FORMAT COMPLETE”. And as soon as I acknowledge “OK” the DMR-ES15 tells me the DVD+RW is unformatted and asks me if I want to format it again. This continues over and over until I power off.
The DMR-ES15 seems to only like NEW BLANK DVD+RW disks, once anything is recorded on them, and ejected from the player, if I try and put the same disk back in, it cannot read it, if I erase the disk on my PC it tries to format it and nothing happens.
I have also tried to erase the DVD+RWs on my PC and then put them back into the DMR-ES15, sadly the same endless circle of formatting happens.
I’ve used the following programs to erase my DVD+RW trying to get it back to a “BRAND NEW BLANK STATE”. No matter what I use to erase the DVD+RW , IsoBuster 2.0 always shows the disk as Having 1 Session and 1 Track…
