    I'm having problems using the High Speed Dubbing -method with the recorder. It creates DVDs that freeze (and after a while an error message is displayed: the disk may be damaged...). The problematic blanks are 4speed Verbatims (of MCC origin bought in a spindle of 25) and cheap Commodores. Jewel case packed 4speed Verbatims and 2speed Verbatim DVD-RW work fine.

    If I use DVD-video creation the problem is the same. The problematic blanks work fine if I use Rate Conversion Dubbing (I guess the recording speed is slower).

    My question is: is this recorder working normally or should I return it for a replacement unit? :lease:

    I'll answer my own question to keep the conversation alive. :)

    It seems that Verbatim - though a high quality media - is not the best choice for Toshiba RD-XS32. This can also be verified from the Verbatim Europe web-site. They have a compatibility matrix there.

    I guess I'll be buying some Tayio Yuden discs, which are recommended for use with this recorder by Toshiba in the manual.
