I have a Sony DVD recorder using this I recorded some program from my TV. Once I record a TV program on it and then transfer it to my iMAC and formatting this DVD, I have problem recording back onto it. I formatted the DVD using complete format option under DiskUtility. Now this DVD is blank. I put this DVD back into my Sony DVD recorder to record more programs, it(sony recorder) complains that this DVD is a write protected. Is there a way to solve this problem? please post …


Does your Sony dvd recorder have a format function? I’m thinking that it is having a problem with the format coming from your imac.

Thanks Rob,

Let me check my DVD recorder…

Formatting the DVD on my DVD Recorder solved the problem.
