Panasonic dmr-e50



i’ve just been given a panasonic dmr-e50 and bought a pack of panasonic dvd-rams but the when i try and use the discs the display keeps saying the disc is protected and cannot change. no matter what i do it wont let me unlock the protection.i’m trying to work out whether the recorder’s faulty or the batch of discs are faulty. has anyone else had the same problem. p.s dvd-rs record ok. cheers


I have never seen this problem but if you call Panasonic at the 800 number in the owner’s manual they are pretty good. Also open on weekends.


cheers mate, i’ve tried ringing panasonic but get no answer so i’ll try again tomorrow
