I have recently bought dvd-rw verbatm discs to record stuff of the tv. Unfortunately they will not format, at the same time i bought some verbatim dvd-r discs and these are fine. different speeds but this does not make a difference does it?
What are the respective disc speeds, Helen, and what is the make and model number of your LG machine?
You do know you have to format the -RW as either -VR or DVD-Video mode…?
Model No DR4810. The -RW discs that will not format are x 4. The -R discs that do work are x16. My DVD player won’t let me format them in any mode!
Hmmm… there’s quite a few comments over on VideoHelp about the same problem. I can only suggest you try to find some 1x speed -RWs.
Yup, your standalone (not player) cannot handle those discs.
I’ve been to Videohelp and have found out my DVD is very choosy over the -RW discs it will take, must be a woman! Thanks for all your help.
