Faulty (?) Panasonic DMR E60

Hello everyone

First time poster here…looking for any inspiration. All help gratefully received

I have purchased via the scourge of society (Flea Bay) a second hand DMR E60 to compliment the identical machine I already own (thus I have a brief understanding of how it works)

However the ‘new’ machine won’t recognize formatted RAM discs at all. It will play pre-recorded discs only

Any clues please???

Many many thanks

You have an oldie there–I see that the DMR-E60 Operating Instructions have a 2003 copyright.

With a machine that old perhaps the DVD Drive needs a rubber hub and lens cleaning. See this thread for information:

See this post for additional information and photos showing the older style DVD Drive used before 2006:
