I have been using these discs successfully in my Magnavox H2160MW9 DVD Recorder since December 2009. It is the only brand I have ever used in the Recorder, and I’ve gone through quite a lot of them. A couple months ago, when it came time to get more, it was a no-brainer. I ordered three packs.

A few weeks passed before I actually needed to format a new disc. When I did, though, I got a “Recording Error. Cannot record on this disc. Error code E 4 54039000”. This occurred on repeated attempts, with different discs from the spindle, without a single one formatting. However, previously formatted discs that still had space on them accepted new recordings. Two possibilities: I either got an entire spindle of bad discs, or my Recorder is starting to show its age. It is almost 9 years old, after all. Given the great reliability these discs have shown over the years, I figured the problem was probably the latter. I tried blowing compressed air into the Recorder, repeatedly, no luck. I tried using a DVD Lens Cleaner, repeatedly, no luck. I am reluctant to take the machine apart, as some message boards have suggested. I debated about buying another brand of discs, but had no guarantee they would fare any better.

Just today, I tried something new. I was curious if I could format the disc in another device, then try it in the Recorder. I downloaded the manual, which said “DVD-RW recorded in the mode other than +VR [(video recording) format] is not recordable on this unit unless you erase all contents in the disc.” Okay. Using my Win10 laptop, I formatted a disc “like a USB drive”. I then put it into the DVD Recorder, saw limited disc options, and proceeded to erase it. The Dubbing menu was now enabled, and I recorded 2 titles onto the disc, with space for more. I expect this to work for the remainder of my discs, but will update if it does not work.

Strange coincidence, then, that just today Amazon prompted me to write a review for these discs. It is coincidence, right?

Anyway, I am still happy with these discs and think they work great. My particular use for them will now take a little bit longer, but hopefully this story will help someone else experiencing similar issues.

I bought these to try them with my Magnavox dvd recorder. I have always used dvd-r discs. My recorder is at least 10 yrs old but still works fine with dvd-r??s. None of these dvd-rw??s worked with it. Maybe they??ll work with a computer, if I can get one someday. I hoped to use them to save money on discs. I do a lot of video recording. Don??t buy these for your old dvd recorder unless you know for sure it will accept them. I gambled and lost. The dvd-r??s I use are Memorex and work fine with this old recorder. So I??m very disappointed that the dvd-rw??s from the same company didn??t.

Customer Questions & Answers

can you burn music into these? if not, which ones besides cd-r?
Answer: I can’t tell you for sure but I have burned Videos with music on them.

What is the difference between RW 2x vs 4x dvd disc’s?
Answer: The speed that it burns. Better results are at a slower speed. If you have a 4x burner, then I would consider a 4x dvd .

I want to transfer home video vhs tapes to dvd, my funai zv472fx4 recorder says i need dvd-rw/-r. what is the difference of an -rw to just a -r?
Answer: Minus RW (-RW) means that the disk is rewriteable. Minus R (-r) means that you can record on it once. You can’t erase it. It would be best if you used -rw.

is there room to record 6 hrs?
Answer: Depends on the speed of your recording. At lowest resolution it can record 6 hrs.
