Question about Sansui VRDVD4005 DVD Player/VCR

Discs will not play on any other machine - STILL NOT SOLVED

I posted this before, but the "solution" posted was just a comment, not a solution, so I'm posting it again in case anyone can help:

This is a cool recorder, but I've found that the discs I make will ONLY play on this machine. I cannot play them on any other DVD player, whether stand-alone or in a computer. Needless to say, that makes the discs practically worthless. Anybody else have this problem? Is there a way to find out what kind of encoding is used, so as to figure out if the data is retrievable?

Press the "setup" button on the remote. Go to "system setup" in the menu then "disc setup" then "finalize" then "proceed" to finalise the disc to play on other machines.

Can not get dvd's I have copied play on my PC or Blu Ray player


Did you finalize the discs on the unit that converted and burned them? That can often be a critical step before moving the disc to another player. (Depending on the unit, you can find the command buried in the Settings or Disc Settings menu. If you add a comment with the machine used to duplicate the VHS tape to DVD, I may know where the command is on your unit.)

If you did finalize the discs, check the media for scratches and make sure that the DVD is compatible with the other players. (Some will have issues with DVD +R and others will have issues with DVD -R discs.)

I hope this helps.

I can watch rented or purchased movies on dvd but when i try to load a blank verbatim dvd-r to record a show on tv the player says load for about 4 minutes before it spits out the disc and says it cannot...


When the discs are recorded are they being "finalised" before you use them?

Finalising means that no more data can be added to the disc but also ensures that it should play on most DVD players. Unfinalised discs are often only playable on either the DVD recorder which created them or on computer DVD drives.

Your machine is supposed to be compatible with DVD-R but sometimes machines are picky about which brand of disc they work best with. You'll also generally find that DVD+R is more widely compatible than DVD-R but that really shouldn't be an issue on a modern machine like yours.

If this answers your problem then please rate my answer, if not then please add a comment and I'll try my best to offer other suggestions.

Not all media discs are playable in all machines.Not all formats are supported in all machines.Coppied and Bootleg discs will not play on expensive players.Dirty,figerprints,badly scratched,all will have problems.Use a disc cleaner (liquid,and fine cloth) to remove scratches.Buy a $ 25-35 cheap player they play anything.Good Luck.

I cannot get the discs it records to play on any other unit, computer or otherwise. Without that, it is useless to me.


This problem was solved by reinserting the DVD and finding Finalize on the menu. Once it was finalized, it played fine in other machines and on the computer.

Thanks,

Not reading pre-recorded dvd's and ocassionally not re-wrtten dvds


Over recent months my recorder has stopped reading pre-recorded disc's and more requently re-writer disc's. I had thought that the region had some how been altered, but not too sure now. Is there a way of checking? Or is there a problem with the laser block. I have stripped the machine down and thoroughly cleaned (but no dust found) and no loose parts. I have reset to manufacture default but this hasn't helped.

OK 1 Other User Has The Same Problem Comment by Guest, posted on Dec 19, 2007 DVDR70-051 recorder functions generally becoming more and more erratic. DVD-RW discs I have recorded sometimes say 'disc error' sometimes 'no disc' sometimes start ok but cycles round and round for 5 - 10 mins before stopping, sometimes goes straight into play at last position, won't stop back in menu just goes straight to stndby. Factory reset dosn't help. Wont play pre-recorded discs without going into menu and messing around. It seems to damage or not record RW discs properly a lot of the time. Not even sure if it's resetting to factory settings properly.
