I have a Panasonic EX86 and when i try to record from Hard Drive to DVD its stops copying after about 30 seconds ands says there is a problen with the disc which may be scratched or have dirt on it.

I cant remember the eroor dode that comes up, but its happening quite a bit. The odd disc will work ok, but mostly it just sops recording.

Its when im trying to copy from the Hard Drive to a DVD. Starts for about 30 seconds then a message comes up on screen saying the disc is either scratched or has dirt on it and the recorder then turns itself off

ah ok, the most common cause for this is a dirty lens, else the lens is scratched or faulting.Do you have a Lens cleaner there, like this? not, you can get it on that link.You then clean the lens using the cleaning DVD and nearly always its ok again and it is dirt or dust on the Lens that can cause this.

I do have a Lens cleaner, but i have had it for a while. Maybe i need to get a new one

I never use them more then twice, else they are not as effective.
Plus they are so cheap.
I advise to get the one I recommend.
