Cool Toshiba dvr read problem

I owned a previous Toshiba dvr that my NEC ND-3550A could read discs after formatting. I purchased a newer Toshiba but can't read these dvds after formatting on the same NEC drive.

Also, is there a way of formatting dvds if your dvr dies before the formatting can be done???

Newbie...didn't see these ??? in FAQs...Thx!!!

hi Guy. by formatting you're talking about setting them to dvd-r or +r format, or do you mean finalizing? I have a toshiba dvr myself and just record on the blanks as is and finalize them. no problems reading them w/my burners. did you install a new os or is there anything on those discs that might cause your drive to not read them?

Take the suggestions and follow the directions. The results will speak for themselves.

Google is definitely our friend.
