Can someone tell me if it is just me or is this a general problem with this DVD recorder. If I have a brand new + RW DVD disc and put in the recorder it formats the disc and allows me to record onto it. If however at a later date I take that same disc and copy some other data or unprotected movie on it using the computer then place it back in the recorder, it does not allow me to erase the data to format. Other brand machines do this, not sure why Sony doesn’t.
More importantly if I erase the disc on my computer (with full erase) and put it in the Sony recorder it says disc error and does not allow me to erase it or format it, as all the tabs or buttons for these options being greyed out. - RW is never a problem because it allows you to format the disc to VR or video thereby erasing any data. It only happens with + RW. Anyone else have the same problem?
