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.

Kenwood hi fi componenet system no play error for dvd-r disc


Is it a DVD-R or DVD+R disc?

comment says -R just wanted to clarify, alot of players have trouble playing the -R discs. If you have your booklet for system, it should say in there otherwise they usually put a little sticker label, by the DVD tray with what file formats and discs it will play.

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.

Disks are not NTSC


What device are you trying to play the file back on? What type of disc (commercial video or homemade)? If homemade, what device wrote to the discs?

If these are commercial discs, they may be PAL discs and will not play on a NTSC video player. You'd need a different player.

If these are homemade discs made on another device, check if the discs were finalized by that device. If the video was made on a computer, try a different format of the video files; check the DVD specifications.

I hope this helps. Please add comments with additional information on the problem if you need more help.

PS3 not loading games, CD's or Blueray discs. Have swapped over blue ray drive and still not loading so we know it is not a drive fault. Restored PS3 to factory settings and still not loading discs. Blue...


The problem itself has not been solved but after more investigation I have found out that this is currently un-repairable.
This is because the console itself has a hardware blueray drive failure due to manditory firmware 3.00 released by Sony and there is currently no fix in place.
From what I can see on the net it looks like Sony maybe being sued over this issue. Sony has also stated that they are now looking into this firmware update to see what went wrong, they have not yet made any further comment.

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,
