    I can play DVD-RW on my computer DVD but I've got over 800 DTK DVD-R disks that I have down loaded but when I put them in my computer, it comes back and asked me to insert a disk.

    I down loaded them on a Liteon DVD Racorder DP-A300 and finalised them.

Hi,

Since your computer recognizes or it reads other dvd disk, the problem is with your dvd disk that you've downloaded a movies. What format file do you downloaded? What software do you use in downloading a movie?

Would you mind letting us know what software you used to finalize those DVD's, please? And also, what operating system you are using on your PC? And is it the same PC as you used to burn those DVDs?

This it do with region coding on the DVD writer, when you are re-encoding movies make sure you you select the encoding to PAL (UK) or NTFC (US) or set the region code to "free" or "0"
DVDSanta is excellent for encoding AVI's to DVD format without the hassle of region codes and all the movies will play on all DVD players
If you use a torrent client, which i suspect you do, download it!!!! you'll love it
hope this helps
regards

    Certain programs that use this authoring system create a DVD disc that
    does not include a lookup table that directs the DVD player to the
    location of the video on the disc. This can cause an error in the DVD
    player program, and the video play is stopped.


    This behavior can also be attributed to lack of Codecs, a compression/
    decompression algorithm. Codecs may be obtained from the DVD
    manufacturer or OEM manufacturer. There are also third-party companies
    that will supply codecs on line for a nominal fee.

If you are using DVD+R , then try using - R or the opposite, oftend DVD drivers have problems reading one or the other format, even when they are supposed to read both.

Shows unkown disc when i put in a burned dvd-r but it will play a store boughten disc what disc format is compadible with yhis unit


This model DVD player can play the following disc formats:

DVD-Video (Region 1 or relevant region coded store-bought movies)

DVD-R (must be finalised on appropriate recording equipment for compatible playback)

CD-R (for jpeg/mp3 media files)

CD-RW (for audio such as mp3)

music CD (such as store-bought albums)

This player will NOT accept DVD-RW/+RW discs, or Blu-Ray.

I hope this helps you a tiny bit.

Cannot play certain dvd discs the make is panasonic model num nv vp33


Panasonic NV-VP33 is a DVD/VCR combo unit. These are good, but limited in DVD media playback formats. It depends on the types of DVDs you are trying to play, and their region codes (if they apply).

This model will NOT play:

DVD-ROM / DVD audio / DVD+R (unfinalised) / DVD-RW / Blu-Ray (obviously).

This model WILL play:

DVD-R (finalised) / DVD-RAM (no finalising required) shop-bought DVD movies / CD-R (for JPEG/MP3/DivX) / DVD-R DL (finalised) / DVD+RW (titled or with a top menu to make them compatible with other players, but again, finalising not required).

You didn't specify which DVDs do not play in your unit.

I would be very concerned if your player didn't read ANY DVDs at all. I assume the image below is what the model looks like. I have never had any problems with mine.

I burned DVD+RW discs on PC but can't play on Samsung SV-DVD440 ? can play on other DVD-player, please help !!


Assuming you did create a menu/title for the DVD+RW, and it works in other players (without the need to finalise), your Samsung DVD unit probably does NOT support this format.

In short, it would be a limitation with this model unit; not a fault with either your discs or the device itself. If it accepts finalised DVD-R as well as shop-bought DVD movies, go with those.

According to the manual, this unit supports limited DVD formats for playback.

DVD+RW (depending on the writing software used) burned on a PC is generally not finalised which means you should be able to erase and re-write to the same disc and/or copy it to a DVD-R and then try the copy in the Samsung.

The (small) bonus here is that it didn't cost you anything to ask, and it won't cost you anything in terms of repairs - AND you do not need a new player at this point.

I can watch rented or purchased movies on dvd but when i try to load a blank verbatim dvd-r to record a show on tv the player says load for about 4 minutes before it spits out the disc and says it cannot...


When the discs are recorded are they being "finalised" before you use them?

Finalising means that no more data can be added to the disc but also ensures that it should play on most DVD players. Unfinalised discs are often only playable on either the DVD recorder which created them or on computer DVD drives.

Your machine is supposed to be compatible with DVD-R but sometimes machines are picky about which brand of disc they work best with. You'll also generally find that DVD+R is more widely compatible than DVD-R but that really shouldn't be an issue on a modern machine like yours.

If this answers your problem then please rate my answer, if not then please add a comment and I'll try my best to offer other suggestions.

Recorded DVD will not play in another player


Hey,
Maybe the format of your recorded movie didnt support your player..check out your manual for the supported formats and check the format of your recorded movie.If any of the format in the manual matches your movie format then it will definitely play..
please rate my suggestion..

Finalize a Disc on Mangavox MWR10D6


No. Generally finalising just writes the unused spaces as unused so the player knows and adds a stop code. The shorter the DVD the longer the finalise. An hour and a half on two hours is plenty of space.

Can't finalise dvd containing AVI movies copied from USB


I would use your PC to finalize discs containing AVI files. There just isn't a way to do it from the Philips. I personally use Dr. Divx, but there are many programs out there that will do this.

Dvds recorded on Samsung will ONLY play on Samsung


Hi,

Have you finalised the disc before trying to play it elsewhere? If not this could well be the problem. The option is the menu.

Hope this helps
