According to the manual you have to use DVD -RAM disks to do that DVD-R will default to 4:3, see picture:

Hi


Thanks for your reply. I understand that DVD-RAM discs can only be read on certain machines, those compatible with devices manufactured by the companies that support the DVD-RAM format. This is obviously quite a restriction. Can you give me a list of companies that allow DVD-RAM discs to be read? I see that my Toshiba laptop does not list the DVD-RAM as an option. Do Apple computers read DVD-RAM?


 


Thanks for your help

I'm not sure what you mean exactly. Your recorder supports them what do you want to do with them?

DVD-RAM discs are not generally compatible with living room DVD players. You will find standalone living room DVD burners using the DVD-RAM format, and even some camcorders, but you should not consider DVD-RAM to be a general-purpose distribution format for video.

About all you can do is connect your computer video output to the TV to play them or find another DVD player that takes those disks. Other than that you can buy a new DVD recorder that will record 16:9 and does not require DVD RAM disks. I wish there was a better answer for you.
