New to this forum, thanks for adding me. I place a blank DVD in the recorder and select Format - Video Mode. When formatting is complete, I proceed to dub a program, but after a few seconds, the screen displays Write Error detected, then asks if I wish to cancel the dubbing. When I do, it says Media type incompatible, although I have done this dozens of times before with the same brand of disk. I have now spoiled at least half a dozen blank disks and my hard drive is filling with programs I cannot dub. Any suggestions?
