I have a Panasonic DMR-ES20 and have 2 discs (Memorex DVD-RW) that i haven't finalized yet, one with 4 hours of stuff and the other with 2 hours. I
took the 2 hour one out of the machine to record something on another
disc and then put it back in the machine 2 minutes later and now
suddenly it says that the disc needs to be formatted to use.
ummm....no i've already used it! It's doing the same thing to the 4
hour one, but there are 2 other discs i have that aren't finalized
that are just fine. I'm fully aware that formatting it will erase all
of my work. I really can't lose 6 hours of stuff! Any suggestions on how to fix this? If I bought another es20 would it at least finalize the discs, or do you think the discs are the problem? help!
