I have a Polaroid DRM 2001g dvr. It was working okay since I got it. Its known for some flaws that I know. But I never had much of a problem recording from HDD to DISC. I mainly record my tv show to HDD then after I segment and watch them I record them to disc. I usually can fit 5 shows to one disc. Yesterday the unit will only record 2 of the 5 shows to disc. I tried another +R disc and again same results. So I grabbed a RW disc and tired that with same results. I have another polaroid unit so I swapped the HDD to that unit. Again same results.
Im at my wits end on what else to try to figure out what happened to it and why it wont record the 5 shows. I also tried recording another segmented show onto the same discs, +R and RW and it wont record anymore.
Initially I thought maybe the dvd burner went but after swapping to a different unit I know believe its something else.

Anyone have any ideas?

My guess would have been the drive. Are you 100% sure the replacement you tested was also good?
