Troubles with a Toshiba RD-XS32SU Not Recording



I bought one of these PVR's on an E-bay auction.
The seller thought he was cute selling one that "Looked"
new but in fact had a deffective DVD recorder.
It would playback OK, but just couldn't seem to record.
I checked out other forums and began to see a pattern
with this particular model and it's DVD recorder. Toshiba
wants $380 just for the replacement. I saw some forums
suggesting a Lite-on model, but I tried a trial & error
method and found that a I/O Magic 16x model which is
widely available works fantastically(NO DVD-RAM capability).
It's I/O Magic's model # IDVD16LS and runs about $70
at most Staples stores. I can record without ANY errors
and it sure beats Toshiba's $380 replacement!
I almost gave up on this manufacturer but with this
fix, I find that it is a pretty great recorder.:clap:
