Have you tried finalizing the disc after the recording session?
Have you tried updating the firmware for the player itself? That can be found here:
I AM HAVING PROBLEMS COPYING HOME VHS MOVIES AND/OR UNPROTECTED VHS MOVIES TO DVD. I AM GETTING A MESSAGE AND EJECTS DVD ...SAYING It won't recognize a blank DVD.......its says "The disc cannot be played....please check the disc"
THE DVD IS DVD-R BY SONY. After several tries the other day it seemed that the vhs was copying to dvd but i could not continue with the next step which is title list..I tried to see if it had recorded but nothing came up. I tried to copy it again and now I am getting the same problem saying that it does not recognize the disc and can't pay it.
Do you have a better explanation or what i should do...the instructions in the manual are not easily friendly.
