I have got a [Panasonic DMR 500H] I can record from a tv to the Navaigator thumbnail without any problem,But I can,t do a Dubbing to a DVD-R Disc, from a thumbnail Title,After I place a DVD-R Disc into the unit a Blue Mgs appears telling me the Disc Iam using is a Non-Recordable Disc+To use a Recordable Disc,I have tried diffrent Makes of DVD-R Discs,I have cleaned the lens using a cleaning disc+Knocked it off from the mains,I have tried everything in the trouble-shooter,It doesn,t even begin to Dubb,It just eject the disc out,When the error mgs comes on,Is it knackered? you are my last call, ATB
Many Thanks

Use reliable DVD-R or DVD-RAM media!

Refer to the manual of your dewvice.

Clean the DVD Drive rubber hub atop the spindle. (Lens cleaning discs do not clean the rubber hub.)

If the DVD Drive in your DMR-500H is inside a surrounding structure use one of the two external cleaning methods, i.e., “[B]CLEANING THE LENS AND RUBBER HUB/SPINDLE AREA WITHOUT OPENING THE CASE AND REMOVING THE DVD DRIVE LID” [/B]found in this post:
