    Now, this is a bizarre error.

    My DMR-EZ27 was recording just fine on DVD+R media (16x speed) up until yesterday when I got an "Err" then a U61 error, and the usual shutdown routine that does absolutely squat.

    I was also getting READ-ONLY errors on DVD-RAM when I tried to record on it, or delete a recording, or formatting!

    Basically, it would not record on anything, but it played commercial DVD's just fine.

    I suspect that this model is VERY sensitive to vibrations because the problems developed after I was trying to tighten the shelf it was sitting on.

    I did a HARD RESET several times, and now it is able to record on DVD-RAM and DVD+RW, but I'm still getting U61 errors with DVD+R -- with which it previously had no problems.

    This unit is supposed to be able to write on dual-layer media, so I don't think it is because I'm using a 16x DVD+R. Remember, it recorded on them just fine yesterday.

    I wonder, though, if it likes DVD-R more becuase that WAS the native format of previous Pannys.

    Tomorrow, I'll try throwing a 4x DVD-R at it and see if I still get the U61 error.

    I suspect that I will.

    BTW, my RCA-8000N records the 16x DVD+R's just fine (and +R's & +RW's are the sole format on which it can record).

    Seeing as how I can record on rewriteable, but not on read-only disks, I would not think that a power-leak is the problem.

    Structurally, what's the difference between a +R and a +RW?

    Any ideas?

    UPDATE

    I'm now able to record on a TDK DVD-R now.

    Tonight, I'll try a TDK DVD+R

    If that works, well, then I guess it went back to the way it was before the errors.

    Well, it still will not write on DVD+R.

    So, I guess I stick to DVD-R's.

    Multi-drive? NOT.
