Empty disk



I recorded from my TV to my Philips DVD recorder and hit the DVD power off switch while it was recording. When I insert the DVD+RW disk into the Philips DVD recorder it says that the disk is empty. Why does this happen and do I have to reformat the disks to use them?

Thanks for any help.
Arnie :sad:


It happens because the recorder hasn’t added the appropriate information that should be written at the end of recording, like length, chapters, menus etc.

You might be able to recover what was on the disc with IsoBuster.

Otherwise you can reuse the disc straight away without formatting.


What model of recorder is it?
