Their are two type of DVD burners and disks. DVD+ and DVD - 
Unless you had burned a DVD before I would try a (DVD+) in you machine. 
Another possibility; If someone had inserted the DV into the machine to burn something at  all on the disk  it may not be burnable the secont time.

Sometimes different DVD software and DVD writers are picky with the type of DVDs that you put in. Try a different brand and see if that makes a difference.

Can't make dvd's from my recordings


The recorder supports these formats
DVD-RW · DVD-R · DVD+R · DVD+RW

There shouldn't be a problem with the speed, maybe a compatibility issue with brands.

Also it might be your lens is dirty have you tryed a cd/dvd lens cleaner disk? dry/wet?

Why does my sonic now not let me record DVD's?


if you are trying to copy dvds that are copyright protected the program knows that and won't let you
there is also a compression issue you have to use a large volume disk to copy some /most movies over 4.7 gig

heres what you do go to dvd-hd decrypter and down load the free version then go to dvd shrink and down load that program this will allow you to decrypt and to shrink you dvd,s to the 4.7 gig
then you can copy them

I can burn the cd no problem its a video of my


Ken --

You probably made a perfect copy of your wedding day (congratulations!)... the problem with burnt DVD's is the player they are played on. For WHATEVER reason, -R and +R disks seem to play better on old or cheap or portable (or a combination of all three) players than on the super-nice ones. I have burnt hundreds of DVD's, and I have yet to get but a handful to play on my "nice" DVD player... instead, they play perfect on the kid's one that we strap to the car headrest for roadtrips...

Ok... if there is a solution:

#1 - Buy good media, the lower the quality the more chance for error (slightly imperfect thickness = vibrations during burning, etc)

#2 - Try lowering your burn speed to 2.4x, seems to add to odds of being read by better machines

#3 - Are you finalizing your disks? Many computers can "get around" an un-finalized disk, but a DVD-player has a much harder time. Check with your burning software's help menu to be sure and "finalize" or "close" the disk when done

#4 - Have you tried a different burning app? Sony's "Vegas" software is unmatched in quality (but a bit expensive) , but cheaper apps like "VSO DivxToDVD" can convert .avi files to burn-ready video files, which can then be burnt with my all-time favorite burning app, "DVDFab 5"

Whew! I hope something in this helps!

If you have further issues, comment to this thread and Iwill be happy to assist you!

I am trying to record to a blank dvd-r. I load a blank dvd-r into samsung-vr357 and it ejects it saying "Cannot read disc". I never get a chance to Format it or anything.


I bought a lens cleaner and ran it and it still would not accept blank dvd-r. I loaded some old recordings I made to see if they would play and they did. I noticed these were recorded on "Staples" brand dvd-r bought at Staples office supply store. I went out and bought some more of these and they work!! For whatever reason, the unit accepts these and I have made 5 copies and they all copy and play fine. Now i need to go get some more! The Maxell just won't work in my player. Too bad I bought 100!

Samsung dvd-r130


I had the same problem and after reading and trying allot of disks I found the following to work.

Used Maxell - RW disk. Did a complete format on my computer (takes a while). Burned a DVD using Vista DVD burner with only a Jpg as per one of the other posts. Once the disk plays. Stop and goto disk management and format using DVD-V (VR did not work).

I know its not pretty but at least its better than throwing it in the garbage bin.

Laptop CD/DVD Drive


In order to copy files to a CD like a hard drive you need a program that can treat the CD like a hard drive. Sometimes called *drag and drop or drag to disk*, is this what you?re using and if so what program are you using?
