    Dear all, after roughly nine happy months of use with my E-85 recorder I am now having a persistant problem with finalizing dvd-r's. As soon as I try to set the title for the disc, the machine goes into self check mode and when it eventually comes back on it tells me theres been an error! It usually take 2 or 3 goes to get past this stage and finally allow me to complete the finalisation process. Otherwise I have no problems with the machine.
    Can anyone shed any light please?
    Thanks in advance. Lazzer :confused:

    Sounds like a dodgy disc, have you tried any other brands? could be the problem, I had trouble entering a title and kept getting a disk error, tried a different make of dvd and worked fine.

    Thanks mate, have used 25 or so bulk pack orange dvd-r discs before but accept that this could be the case........

    Anyone else confirm or deny this? Thanks

    Almost certainly it is a media problem. Even if you are using exactly the same brand media as you always have it could still be different media - especially with cheap brands. Personally I recommend sticking with branded media (Panasonic, Maxell, Verbatim, Sony, TDK, Packard Bell etc) even if it is a bit more expensive.
