I’ve just bought a Panasonic DMR ES20DEB and a pack of three Panasonic DVD-RAM4.7 discs (type 4, 9.4GB, two-sided).
Problem is the Panasonic doesn’t recognise any of the discs. It looks at them for about 30 seconds, spinning them a few times, then comes back and says Disc not Recognised. Then there’s no Disc Management menu to try formating.
It looks like the recorder should support these discs according to the manual, should it?
Speed-wise the discs are marked 2~3X, and are in cartridges.
The recorder works fine using DVD-RW, DVD-R, and rental DVDs played back. It’s just DVD-RAM so far where it’s just not interested.
