    I have had my recorder about a year now. I have used several brands of dvd-r to record my movies. I seem to be having the problem when I go to dubbing and insert a blank disc it tries to read and says that it is non-recordable. I have this problem 3 times withing 1 year. I've taken it to the repair shop and they say nothing is wrong and I get it back home and seems to work fine. Is there something I'm missing here? Does it need to be re-initialized? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    I have found the Panasonics are very picky about the Media. Some disks work some times and not at others. Some will record and not finalize. Verbatims seem to work ok. Memorex 4X work good but 8X will not. I think you have to try differnt media out and see what works. Maybe we should start a thread reporting what works well and what doesn't It would be handy to have oters experiences to draw on when looking at what is on sale and if they work or not.

    I have a panasonic DMR E-30 and it records fine with
    dvd-r 4x only. If I try to record with any other format I can just forget it! and yes Memorex is fairly cheap media but it agrees well with panasonic
    for some reason. I personally prefer Ritek Ridata media over all other media.

    Memorex has worked well for me as well. I hace some that I think is 2x and it does process slowly but no failures so far. The other one I was amazed with was the Value-Data from Office Max 24.95 - 29.95 for a spindle of 50 They work great! (Ugly blue color though) I've heard several people mention Ritek but I've never seen them. Where do you buy them?
