Question about Televison & Video
SOURCE: LG HDD/DVD Recorder Model: RH265
What you need to do is to put in your dvd that you wish to copy onto and then press the DVD button on your remote control. (this is next to the HDD button which is under the POWER button) Then follow the on screen prompts and instructions in the owners manual. I had the same problem but found the solution by mistake!
Hope this helps,

I have the same unit with the same exact problem. I ended up taking it in for repair and it's now working perfectly. I paid $100 for the repair. I dropped the unit off and picked it up myself. I think $30 additional is charged for shipping and handling in US.

I had the same problem I thought it was me!! Dooh but sent it back and JVC very kindly replaced the DVD unit, I believe free of Charge and after is was out of warranty by a few months.
Well done JVC on this one.

The solution is simple.I rang LG service (so called - LOL)
Asked for a fix or reset method. (Which can be done but they won't tell novices how)
Got no joy, so now I will bin it,and spend the rest of my days telling people to avoid LG.
After all the posts I have since read about the same problem on various LG models,it is obvious their product sucks,they know it does, but won't accept the responsibility.
If I stop 4 people buying their ****,that's at least $1000 they miss out on.
If the process snowballs,how much then$$ ?
It would cost me $120 just to get it to and pick it up from the repair place.
Plus parts and labour added.
Before buying an LG DVD recorder go online and check out how many dissatisfied customers there are. In short, DO NOT BUY !!

This is a Samsung DVD recorder - I've had the exact same problem - By the way, don't you mean "this disc cannot be recorded" ? These DVD recorders are known to reject certain type of discs.
* Have you updated your Samsung with the latest firmware ?
Follow the instructions carefuly and please understand the risks involved in flashing your drive - Do not interrupt the process, it can take long.
* here are the brands of DVD-R I have used successfuly with this recorder int he past:
Taiyo Yuiden DVD-R 4x / 8x (the optical drives used in those recorders are outdated, their writing strategies are never up to date and may not recognize some type of discs)
Maxell DVD-R 4x / 8x
Verbatim DVD-R 4x / 8x
Try another blank disc - maybe it will accept it - if it keeps rejecting all your blank DVD-R no matter what brand, you have a bad drive inside your recorder - the samsung recorders are **** - I have ever since gotten rid of that piece of **** and now use a Sony HDR-780 HDD/DVD recorder, uses pioneer components and is great !
Avoid those lens cleaners - they can do more harm than good!
I hope this helps.
Try different brands of DVD-R, avoid the cheap generic **** - drives like best Taiyo Yuden & Verbatim media id codes - they should recognize Maxells, verbatims, sony, taiyo yuden, ritek. if it keeps spitting out all discs you use, you have a defective unit. The latest firmware on that drive should also help !
Good luck :)
