Hello my name is ***** ***** help you with that request.

Let's start with the basics, as you might know by now DVD-RW is a very sensitive type of media which anything could affect the playback and the recording. so my questions are as follows:

- Have you tried cleaning the recorder's lens by using a DVD Lens Cleaner (the ones with the brushes under the actual disc)

- Have you tried different brand names of DVD-RW media.

- When was the last time you did a FIRMWARE UPDATE on that recorder? Do you have the latest Firmware installed on that unit?
