Hello, my name is Rusty. There are many things that can cause this, can you describe how you are trying to record?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
i am recording on dvd in different record modes. It will start to record and after a hour or so it will stop and display unable to record on this disk. I can complete the disk to play on other dvd players. But it will stop recording after a hour or so. It is worst when set to timer record. When the timer come on for it to record it starts to record then stop within a few minutes.
Expert:  Rusty replied 2 years ago.
It sounds like other channels are taking priority. That will definitely cause the recording to stop. You can reset the recorder by pressing setup, and selecting General Setting. Do the RESET ALL command, and see if that clears up the problem. Please tell me the results.
