    HELP! I am having persistent problems burning DVD-Rs with my Pioneer Tivo unit. The disc gets as far as preparing, then fails during copying... or sometimes during finalizing. i get a message that says either "programs could not be copied because of an internal error" or incompatible media, which is simply not true.

    Driving me nuts... Can anyone out there assist?

    A very frustrating problem. Try a 2X DVD-RW to see whether this works. (Do not use greater than 2X as these will not work). If it does work with the DVD-RW, then it is likely the type of blank DVD-R is the problem. Sometimes a particular brand of DVD-R makes a difference. This is true even if the different brands have the same specifications. I have had good luck with Sony brand. Also, try to burn a few different recordings.
