LG RH299H HDD/DVD does not read purchased DVD's

My LG R299H HDD/DVD recorder initially read any CD or DVD. Now it will not read any DVD or some CD that were purchased. When I insert the media it attempts to read but then opens the tray and displaya message that the media cannot be read. Some CD's are read and played without any problems. I suspect some setting is incorrect.

    LG RC299 It used to play everything, now it only plays dvd disks that have been backed up but wont play original dvd. It should play region 4 but it now tells me "no disk" . I have removed region code with 0000000 but it made no difference.

    Have an RC299, was playing disks on region free fine for 1 year. Then stopped suddenly with Disc error on two of 4 new legitimate movies purchased. Still plays local region but wont play out of region disks. DVD shows as region 0 and congrats on region free. Does it only work once ?? if you change the dvd again or use another hack like chanfin Option 5 to FF it does not help and dvd's will not play. Sigh does this mean I ahve to purchase a new dvd player to play my movies

Having trouble trying to record from hdd to disc on a LG RH735T. it will initialize the disc and then ejects. their is no button switching from hdd to disc


Your computer has a virus, or you are trying to write an image that you had recorded with another version of the software burner.
confirm the size of what you want to write e. g cd or dvd.
a cd should not be more that 700 mb and for dvd should be not more than 4.5/7 gbs.

LG RH265 does not read DVDs


Purchase a DVD cleaning kit and follow the instructions, this will remove any dirt from the laser pickup lens, and hopefully get it up and running. If this fails, the only other option is have the whole laser assembly replaced, "expensive" or replace the entire unit.

Dubbing rom hdd to dvd


All you have to do is select dvd on the remote (at the top). Then it should do it automatically. If it doesn't, go to menu, then setup, disk, format. That does the job.
