Sansui VRDVD4000 format

I would like to burn some of my home videos (in .avi format) to DVD to play on my sansui VRDVD4000. Does any one know what: 1. type of disk ( DVD-R, DVD+R, etc.) I should burn on 2.) What format they should be converted to? (.MOV, ???) I have Nero 7.0 Ultra but every time I try to bun I get a message on the sansui VRDVD4000 "Check disk". I have tried DVD-R and DVD+RW so far.

Re: sansui VRDVD4000 format

I do not believe this player plays AVI videos, not to mention whatever codec you are trying to use.

Download VSO ConvertXtoDVD and convert your AVI files to DVD and then burn them to DVD-R (NOT DVD+R), the 4.7GB discs (single-layer).

This process takes a very long time, depending on the size of the movies you are converting, some 1-2 hours, some 8-24 hours.

I suggest buying a Philips DVD Player that plays DivX and XviD AVI files, they seem to be the best. You can just burn the AVI to any disc and it will play. [Most popular seems to be Philips DVP 642]

Why does a gpx dvd in home player keep saying not supported file

You may be trying to play a format it doesn't support like divx, avi, etc. This may especially be relevant if you are trying to play video burned to a DVD.

Make my memorex mvd2040 play homemade dvds (avi files on a disc ) ?

In order for you to make the unit read home movies, you haveto make sure the AVI files are being converted to a DVD format. If the video isnot transcoded to that format, the player will not recognize the disc. You willneed to use a burning application that converts the files prior to burning it,or get software that converts files to DVD and then burns it to a disc.

I have a Sansui Model VRDVD4000 and the DVD player keeps saying "load disc" even when the disc is in the player.

few small things to try. Turn off unit, unplug for 5 minutes, plug back in, turn unit on.

There is a product called a cd/dvd lens cleaning disc. Worth the investment to have around.

Some DVD players simply will not read/play home made dvd's, or dvd copies.

Cannot format a dvd-rw disc or record to the disc.

Unless you posted this question in the wrong category, you can't use the Sansui VRDVD4000 to record to DVD. It is a DVD player only, not a DVD burner. It will play and record VHS tapes, but with DVDs it will only play them.

To record to a DVD, you would need a DVD burner. Many modern computers include a DVD burner, so maybe either your computer or someone you know's computer has a DVD burner.

Converting Movies To Play On My Home Dvd Player

Convert video to .avi or DVD (Audio TS- Video VS) format.
Many common dvd players can play .avi files
(.avi files are very compact).
All dvd players play TS/VS format.
AVS4U is a reasonably priced (approx $50)downloadable suite of programs that can perform all the conversion tasks you need for audio & video.

Dvd player wont read the movie i burned to watch-need firmware?

Did you finalise the disc. If not try that. These older units were made before there were a lot of "homade" DVD's and were never designed to play them. Sorry. Hope this is of some help.

Sony CD/DVD Player DVP-NS50P not playing my avi files DVD+RW

You need to convert avi files to dvd format before burning, otherwise the player won't recognize them. Google "avi to dvd" and you'll find a number of free or pay programs that will do the conversion for you.
