Question about Samsung DVD-VR375 DVD Recorder/VCR
I can't get discs I've recorded on the dvd-vr375 to play on anything but that dvr/vcr recorder. Is there a way to get them to play elsewhere or do I have to have a 375 everywhere I go to watch my recordings?
If you are using DVD-R media, you can record in either V or VR mode. What is confusing is that if you try to format the media, you only have the choice of VR mode -- and this mode is very well understood by other dvd players, some other records do understand it. This mode has much better editing capability, but poor compatibility. If you want compatibility, use the V mode. The trick is that to do that, you don't format it! V mode is the default and does not require formatting. The owners manual says that, but too well hidden if you ask me

Check the mode of recording, there are two types, one being editable will not play on most other devices.
2. check whether the discs are finalized
3. If you are using re-writable discs, you may not get the option to change the video mode, so try using regular dvd -r or +r discs.

I called Samsung. They said to use the dvd-r instead of +r.I'll post tomorrow and let it be known if this corrects the issue.
