I was hoping to have someone help me with this problem, but so far there has been no response. I really need some help:
All I am using this deck for right now is to dub footage from DV tape to DVD. I have been fairly successful in the past, but being new to all of this I can can get snowed under pretty quick. I feel the manual is woefully inadequate to resolve issues. Today I popped in just a regular DV tape to dub to DVD and no matter if I put in a DVD-R or DVD-RW I get the same message - "Can not dub with this disc". What am I doing wrong? Pleas help me, I am getting desperate!!
Everything works fine up to Step 6. This is where the problem occurs:
"6. Press the “Dubbing” button on the remote (very bottom of remote).
a. Use the arrow keys on the remote to select (“DV --> DVD”), then press
b. Select “Entire” to dub the entire MiniDV tape and press enter."
When I select the "DV --> DVD" and hit Enter, that is when I get the following message; "Can not dub with this disc". (That really is how they spell "Cannot".) I hit "OK" and it takes me back to the selection page to choose "DV--->DVD" again. I am using Memorex DVD-RW discs and Dynex DVD-R and it doesn't seem make a difference. I have been successful in the past doing dubs, but this one has got me buffaloed! Thanks for your help!
