I own a Toshiba VHS/DVD Recorder and it's worked fine for a while. Today, however, I started to record a show onto a blank DVD-R disc and I get an error that says "Recording Error. This program is not recordable in Video Mode. E 27." I checked the owner's manual and it said I had to change the format mode from Video to VR mode. I did, and it still hasn't helped. I've switched to other blank DVD-Rs and it hasn't helped. I tried recording on a DVD that I had recorded other programs on and nothing.

Though I found that if I switch between programs it will record. So I could record channel A for a few seconds, the error would pop up, I would change to channel B, the error would go away and it would record for a few seconds until the error popped up again. As long as I kept switching between channels it would work. Which is strange.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

You might have more luck with a DVD-RW disc.

I plan on buying some and finding out. Still, I don't want the 30 DVD-R discs I have to go to waste.

Your -R and +R discs will still work on other programs not requiring VR mode recording.
