Question about Zenith XBR413 DVD Recorder

1 Answer

Unknown Disc I will burn a DVD using Divx software and when I go to put it in my dvd player it will say unknown disc, but it doesnt do it all the time some movies that I dowload do not say it they play just fine and they are all avi files and I have used the same type of disc DVD+R. I figure that if one plays they should all play it doesnt make any since to me.

There are at least two types of AVI formats that I know about: DIVX and XVID. When you encode your movie files are you encoding them always to DIVX? Some machines can play one format and not the other.

Did you make sure to handle the disc with care and not smudge it with your fingers? Dirty discs can easily be cleaned, using a super soft cloth & rubbing alcohol wiping in a swirling motion as you go around the disc. Discs with scratches need to be taken to a shop and professionally repaired.

Is the machine itself dirty? Simple fix: CD/DVD cleaner disc. Its got these little brushes on it to clean the laser eye.

Are you covering up any air holes on the outer case? Don't cover these up or the machine will get too hot, and will refuse to play anything.

I have burned some quick time movies to a disc i can play it on my computer but when i try and play it on my dvd it comes up unknown disc can anybody help


Hi, your DVD player might like the disks you use, + or -, maybe it doesnt recognise the format you have recorded in, you say 'Quick Time'? Look for 'DivX or XviD' on your player, this is the common DVD players that people use. When you dowmload a video image look out for XviD or DivX in the title,
If this helps you out please give me thumbs up thanks...

hi, try first to insert a clean up CD, and test your Cd or Dvd player with an original CD or Dvd, if the problem persist , your laser sense is defficient you have to go to fix it to a specialist.
hope this helps you

Does not recognise discs


If this disc that you are trying to use is a DVD+/-RW and it has been used a few times for DVD-Video or DivX then you can try to do a FULL ERASE using the excellent ImageBurn by lightining now at v2.5.0.0 it takes about 20 mins to erase a full single sided DVD

Hope this helps.

Have just bought dvp 5960 it will not play downloaded off my computer just shows unknown disc


The DVP5960 should play ANY DVD format except DVDRAM.

Do bought DVDs play ok? If so, then the problem is probably not the player.

What file type are you burning on to the disc? .AVI (DivX) & .VOB (DVD) files should be ok.

If you are using Windows Explorer to drag & drop the files to the disc, you will also need to finalize the disc.

DVD+R will not play


2 Things 1 You need to Finalize the disc to play of a DVD player check that out with your DVD burn program. 2 Check the DVD players capability with certain discs, not all payers will run 'burned disks' sometimes even the brand of disk matters or whether it is + or- type There are may variables with the DVD firmware. Finalize first the the first step.
