    Has anyone had a failed DVD burn on a Panasonic recorder? I was just wondering what they're supposed to do because mine (an E95) does something very strange. It immediately resets itself and goes into a longer than normal self-check, then comes up with a message saying that burning failed.

    I'm hoping that this is what it's supposed to do, because otherwise my machine is on the blink!

    I had been using Datawrite Red V2 with no problems. When I ran out of those I switched to Datawrite Red V3 and the first two I have tried have failed as described above. I also tried a BulkPaq Orange Generation 4 and it did the same thing. However I've just tried a RAM disc and it worked fine, so if it is faulty then it's not completely faulty.

    Any idea whether I should be worried? Any reccommendations for blanks that work well with Panasonics would be welcome.

    Regards

    That sounds fairly normal - sometimes the Recorder will bring up a message saying it has failed to burn and then lets you continue whereas other times it self-checks. I suppose how much it dislikes the media :)

    Personnally I stick to branded media: JVC, TDK, Panasonic, Pioneer, Sony, Verbatim, Maxell, HP etc etc as I find this is always universally compatible and tends to have better longevity prospects. DVD-Rs are so cheap now there isn't much excuse for not using good quality media.

    Phew! Well thanks for the reply. It's a bit strange that the V3 discs fail yet the V2 ones were fine, but there you go. You're right about branded media too - I'm so used to looking for bargains that I tend to forget that in some cases I'm only saving myself a few pence.

    I'm off to buy some decent blanks!

    Regards

    I also have the same experience as you. For me, in the past i used some kind of no brand dvd(cyber dvd) and do high speed dub and the player keeps reseting itself. Thought the panny was spoilt. So this time round i used better media based Tayio Yuden dyes. It works very well. For the cheap disc, i think it can only do real time recording or dubbing. The Panny is quite "choosy" about media.

    As most DVD-RAM disks are sourced from either Panasonic or Maxell the actual brand you buy isn't such as issue - that said if you go for uncaddied disks though it's worth paying for a branded disk as it will be protectively coated. I personnally use Panasonic disks - which I normally pickup from the Panasonic E-Shop. I also have used DVD And Media for Maxell DVD-RAMs before with no complaints.
