can not record on this disc

Specs: Windows 10
I have a Magnavox VCR/DVD recorder. I used Memorex dvd+r disc had no problem. The store didnt have these so I brought Sony dvd+r. I got a couple of the disc to work by opening and closing door up to 6 times when it would do it in a couple of minutes but the last time I recorder for 2 hours and the message came on CAN NOT RECORD ON THIS DISC. What can I do to fix this problem

Have you checked the specs. for the Magnavox to confirm which disks it will accept? I Seem to recall that many DVD recorders will not accept the +R disk; will only accept the -R format.

I note you say Memorex +R were ok, but check specs nonetheless. Equally there have been instances of some disk brands being ok and others not so for some DVD recorders.

Also perhaps run a lens cleaning disk in the machine; as possibly the lenses are getting a little mucky/dirty?

As per #1, some devices can be fussy about brand (especially the older ones).

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
