    Additional Info, Samsung HR730.Thanks Ohms.
    The discs that won`t play are recorded on the same machine,all brands of of discs have been try,it plays purchased discs no problem.After eight, nine, ten attempts it may accept the disc.If after recording from the hard drive you can leave the disc in the tray and it will
    play,but if you remove it your back to square one.

Apparently, it needs a new DVD deck. You may contact Samsung for the warranty repair.

Some dvd players that have been bought now, are made with a non piracy watching device, this means if the dvd player picks up that the dvd is a pirated movie, it will not play, thats why you are seeing difficulties here, it is better to buy an older dvd player off somebody else, give it a good clean and you will find they are perfect, they are even better then eome of the new ones, i say stick with the old and out with the new, you will see the difference if you swtch to a different dvd player. thanks

Hi,

It may be that the issue is with the recorded disc(s). All recorded discs have to be finalized in the unit that produced/recorded them. One way to try is to use the same recorded disc(s) in another standalone player and see if it will play. Further it could be checked back in the CD/DVD writer that did the recording and check if it will play. If no,likewise, then you have confirmed the "finalizing" requirement, if yes it will play, then the problem is compatibility with the Samsung DVD HR730. You may need to check region limitations.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    Some CD rewriter work fine only with determined disks.For example they can only read +R DVDs or -R ones.

    Some player cannot even read non original ones.

    If you are using +R try using a dvd -R and see ads it goes.

    If it starts reading the disk only after several attempts, and in the meanwile you get only whirring and clicking noise with the disk not reading, then it is a lens problem.

    That may happen because the lens is dirty or defective,

    If lens are dirty , it cannot read the initial track near the centre of the CD. The CD starts spinning and stops before reading the tracks, until with some luck it reads the tracks.
    In this case you clean the lens with a good cleaner disk, or access ing lens pickup and using cotton and isopropyl alcool.

    In your case it looks more like the lens pickup is defective and must be replaced.

    Call the phone number listed on the manual to get assistance, validate the warranty , or buy parts.

My Samsung DVDR120 will not accept any new DVD-RW discs. I have tried Maxell, Memorex and SONY. They all either freeze at 85% initialization or formatting, or spit out saying system error. The machine is 4...


This is a common fault and usualy caused by the DVD drive going faulty, The Lazer changes angle as it records across the disc and at about 80% there is a change point.

I suggest putting a cleaner DVD through the unit before you try anything else as a bit of dust can cause that problem. If that doesn't fix it than you may need to change the DVD loader unit as a whole or as you suggested by a new modern unit with even more features.

DVD will not recognise discs


I think that moisture has formed on the boards.

The best thing to do is to take the recorder
and put in a warm room,connect it and leave for 2-3 hours.
Then try with a disc again.

I hope i`ve helped!

How to finalise dvd recording


Press the menu button on your remote - go to finalize disc - follow instructions. Note that VR discs can be played with many if not most DVD-players without finalizing. In fact I have had problems finalizing and unfinalizing discs back and forth. If the disc manager displays only unfinalize disc, the disc is already finalized.

SAMSUNG HR733 DVD RECORDER WILL NOT PLAY ANY REGION DISCS AT ALL


On page 45 of the user manual it says this:

Both the HDD & DVD RECORDER and the discs are coded
by region. These regional codes must match in order for the
disc to play. If the codes do not match, the disc will not play.
The Region Number for this HDD & DVD RECORDER is
described on the rear panel of the HDD & DVD RECORDER

If you changed the region codes on your player it will not work. They should be set back to 1 or whatever your model says on the back of the unit.

If this unit was purchased outside the United States, it may not work in the United States.

Here is a copy of the manual if you need it:

Wont play dvd discs


Hi all.
I have 'a' solution. It is a pain in the neck but what I do is just keep closing the drawer after the message "this disk can neither be played or recorded, please check disk" comes on screen until it does what it is meant to do.
I am only doing this to clear off the hard drive then I am going to buy another machine.
