I just this week bought a "Classic" DVD Player and Recorder, made by Mustek. It came with one blank, two hour DVD-RW disc, so to test the recorder out I put that disc in and recorded two hours worth of programing.
It recorded that two hours just fine. Later the same day I put in a new blank 4.7gb DVD-R disc. The recorder keeps telling me that "no disc" is in the unit. So I tried several different sizes and brands of blank DVD-R discs and the recorder "saw" none of them.
My computer writes and reads just fine to those 4.7gb DVD-R discs so why won't the DVD Recorder "pick them up"? The "manual" for the recorder, two pages in English, tells me nothing.
I did a Google search to try to find a site explaining the difference between a DVD-R and a DVD-RW but found nothing. Any help on this thread?
