Sansui VRDVD 4005 Recorder

Trouble: C-104 & C-206 I read one of your replies and you stated that the unit may be an old one. My unit was built in 2003 and I have only recorded one DVD when it was new. It plays well but will not record in DVD. Is it because I am using new discs.

I've had this problem myself and a list of others. FYI, I've found it easier to use dvd-rw discs
for any mistakes you might make. Use Video mode (not VR mode) if you want to watch them
on a Computer or other DVD again and you have to Finalize disc. As for your problem, if all
else is okay, try removing your disc and unplugging the unit. I've done this numerous times
for odd reasons something wasn't working right. I'm not sure how long you have to keep it
unplugged. Try 10 minutes and you'll have to wait 30 minutes or more if you want the clock
to sync up on its own but you can set the clock manually. I've done this for a blinking
REC light in the VCR mode after trying the TIMER REC button.(it shouldn't be blinking
when the unit's working properly) This gets to be a pain and I've had to do this sometimes
2 days later or 6 months later. It's not a perfect unit. By the way, if times an issue, reset the
clock manually as soon as it starts blinking. This will cut your reset down to 11-12 minutes.
Hope this helps.

DVD PLAYS CD'S BUT WONT PLAY DVD'S


Aquarius0128 there are two things to consider here.. dvd's recorded on a computer need to be closed/finalized after you have recorded onto them in order to be used on a stand alone player.. they will play ok on original recorder because of the design of these machines finalizing prepares the structure of the disc so it can be recognised by other players as a dvd video disc.. you will usually see a 'finalize disc' option in your recording program

Second issue is this.. even if finalized an older (or even some modern) stand alone players will not recognise a recorded disc made on a computer or even if it can there are different formats DVD+R DVD-R and even DVD-RAM and DVD-RW (the two latter ones are rarely recognised outside a computer)

Sansui vrdvd 4005 - won't finalize movies anymore - just ruins them completely


Sorry but you are boinked. The problem is not that the unit is not finalizing your discs. The problem is that it is not copying onto these these discs. This is an older model unit and it will read 8x but not 16x discs. I started having the same problem and found this information out on another web site.
