    Hi guys,

    I have problems burning DVDs on my DVR 633. There is only one type of DVDs I purchesed from Walmart, MEMOREX which works form me. No others. I tried another model of Memorex, I tried Sony, Phillips. The recording starts and after about 5 -10 mins I get an error saying "Cannot complete copy". With my old DVDs it works, but I have no more and Walmart is not carying them anymore, so I have to switch.

    Any idea of what can be wrong?

    Thanks,
    ne@

    Did the problem start as soon as you tried another DVD brand?

    I've used Sony, Memorex and JVC without any problems.

    Only other thing i can think of is to make sure you are using DVD-R and not DVD+R.

    My Pioneer DVR-531H-s (which is from the same production year as the 533/633 models) has been very iffy when it comes to burning.

    I can't seem to get it to burn to a DVD-R and it has become very tempermental as to what DVD-RW discs it will work with.

    And I've tried good stuff ... Old MIJ Maxell 8x DVD-R ... Taiyo Yuden 8x DVD-R ... Taiyo Yuden 16x DVD-R ... Verbatim 16x DVD-R etc.

    It was working a long time with some Maxell DVD-RW discs but now doesn't like them for some reason. It fails to INITIALIZE them. In fact I'm down to one TDK that still works (2x DVD-RW) so I need to get some more (I guess TDK brand) DVD-RW discs.

    I even tried a CD/DVD lens cleaner disc and that didn't seem to help.

    Thankfully I prefer to go DVD-RW as I like to RIP to the computer and re-author with TMPGEnc DVD Author and burn a DVD-R on the computer. Then I re-use the DVD-RW.

    But with a single DVD-RW working now ... it slows things down a bit LOL

    Thank god for the built-in HDD
