Panasonic DMR-E75V Plays; Won't Record

I bought a used -E75V at a swap meet recently. The DVD drive will PLAY everything: original movies, DVD-RWs that I've recorded and finalized on my -EZ47, etc. And my -EZ47 remote control is about 90% compatible with it....no Fast Forward or Reverse from the remote, for some reason.

The real problem is when I try to record something on DVD. I've tried two different brands of new, blank DVD-RAM (the last of which was Panasonic brand, 3x) but the machine keeps showing UNSUPPORTED on the front display. When I go to the menu and hit FORMAT, the on-screen warning says NOT A RECORDABLE DISK.

Any advice as to what's happening would be appreciated. As it is, the machine is only usable as a VCR with DVD PLAYER. Not bad for a $5 investment, but I'd like to get it recording RAM disks if possible.

Does it record to -R discs? doesn't look like the E75v supports RW discs, at least for recording.

You're correct: the -E75V will only record on DVD-RAM and -R.

Yes, I did try -R and the result was the same as with RAM. But my -R disks are higher speed than the 3-5X recommended. I've never been able to record on ANY of my recorders with -R disks, but the slower -RW have usually worked fine.
