    Hi,
    I have one of these recorders, which is starting to suffer from the dreaded 'disc error' problem. I have noticed that +RW discs that already have material recorded on the full disc, never suffer from the error...

    A quick record and subsequent post format does not appear to fix the problem on new discs. I was wondering if anyone has tried 'formatting' the +RW discs on a PC DVD writer? It almost appears that the laser on the Philips unit does not have enough power to burn the initial layer onto the disc.

    Any advice appreciated...

    Cheers, Lee
