Am I the only one with this problem...?
I bought a Sony DVD/VCR recorder. I use the DVD recorder to record a few TV programs each day to watch when convenient. After a day or a week of use (recording, viewing, then erasing) the discs suddenly will no longer work. I'll try to watch some recorded programs (just commercial TV) and I'll get an on-screen message that the disc is now unviewable and unrecordable. I'll go to the disc information screen which then reflects there are 0 hours and minutes available, and 0.0 of the 4.7 GBs. The title (play) list is gone as are the programs.
I have returned and exchanged the Sony machine once, and moreover have exchanged three packages of DVD+RW discs, trying to determine where the defect lies. The problem continues. :Z
Usually I can reformat the disc to make it operable, but of course loose the recorded and unwatched programming.
The above is maddening. I'm through hoofing the products down to the store for exchanges. So I can use the VCR function to record and watch TV programs and the DVD recording capability will be useless.
Can someone please take a moment to offer intelligent input on this? While not an expert on this technology, I know enough to know it's not me who's doing anything wrong with the setup etc.
