    Hi,
    I have a Toshiba D-VR 16 dvd vhs combi. Just over a year old. It records fine but has stopped formatting blank DVD's. They load, then go to format screen which says 0% and flashes and then comes up with disc record error.
    I have tried with both Tesco and Sony DVD-RW's but to no avail. About 1 in 200 go's it will format.
    Any ideas.

    Hi, I have exactly the same problem and have tried different discs and keeps stopping at formatting stage with error message and code E4 54037380. Do Toshiba have a support site or a number to contact as cannot find one.:mad:

    even though mine was a magnavox i was getting the same message and error code. after sifting through the net someone suggested running a dvd lens cleaner through it then blowing it out with compressed air. i tried it and it worked like a charm. hope it works for you.
