My go video dvr4400 does not play homemade dvd's

My "GO" was bought feb, 2003, manual does not say if I need to use a certain speed to record a dvd. I've tried to use a Memorex 16x, 4.7GB, 120min, When I try to play it, it comes back with an error message.

Since it is 5 yrs old, would a slower speed work? I could use any help you can give me.

Thanks,
Carolee

Usually it isn't the speed of the homemade DVD but the type. DVDs come in four different formats:

DVD+R
DVD-R
DVD+RW
DVD-RW

Some DVD players will play all formats and some don't. Your manual should tell you. Do you know what formats are available for playback on your Go video?

    Is that format compatible for playback on your dvd player?

My DMR_E80H recorder does not read blank dvd-r disks


I don't have a solution but I am having the same problem (same model DMR-E80H). It will read finalized dvds but won't recognize or play blank or non-finalized dvds. About a year ago I had to replace the hard drive . . . I'm just assuming that the dvd recorder is just slowly breaking down and will need some kind of repair of certain components. (I think we bought it new in 2003/2004?)

I am trying to copy a VHS to DVD from a VHS player. I have a Sony VRD-MC6 multi-function DVD Recorder. I am using the A/V cable and have verified that they are correctly placed. The Sony player will...


Is it possible the VHS you're trying to copy is copy-protected? Apparently, the MC6 displays "waiting for signal" when you're attempting to copy a copy-protected (commercial) video. I had success converting my own homemade VHS tapes. I just bought my MC6, and thought I'd pass along some tips I got from others: You know you're recording when a red ring around the large Record button lights up and it actually says "recording" on screen, and adjust HQ to SP to get 2-plus hours of video on the DVD.

I just bought a new spindle of DVD+R (Sony) and when I tried to burn a movie from TV/cable on one, it said that I couldn't record on this disc. I thought the disc was bad so I exchanged it with another...


Are you using a stand alone dvdr(not hooked to a computer)? If so some dvd-recorders(mostly older models) May only record either dvd-r or dvd+r. They are two different formats that for all intense and purposes do the same thing. If its an older DVD recorder there may be another problem and that is the recording speed. Check the previous disc that have recorded ok and see what the recording speed was. It will look something like... 2.4X, 4X, 8X. Brand could make a difference but my gut feeling is its the recording speed. Check you owners manual it should list brand name disc as well as the recording speeds to use.

Most DVD recorders use DVD-R, some also use DVD-RW. Newer ones use the +R and DVD-RAM formats.

But for the maximum compatibility, you should use DVD-R.

How to record a VHS tape to a DVD disc


Read your manual first to make sure the unit will do this.If it does chances are it won't record unless it has a decoder built in.Most VHS tapes have macrovision protection that prevents you from copying them.It will however,record homemade VHS tapes.There are decoders out there you can buy to enable you to copy VHS tapes.

Playing dvd's


could be a ratings problem. Perform a reset by holding down your channel up and channel down buttons on the unit itself simultaneously until it shuts off. Wait a few seconds and turn it back on. Give it a try. Good Luck - Tamara
