Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

One source indicates that on this type of DVD recorder, you should go into the settings as follows... go to

Setup - General - Recording - Make Recording Compatible

and set that option/setting to 'On' and return to normal operation. That should help with the problem.
