Question about JVC (DMRV1S) Burner

DVD Recorder/VCR combo shuts down during DVD recording

My JVC DR-MV1SL DVD recorder/VCR combo is two years old. Recording of DVDs has gotten progressively worse (but can be intermittently succcessful). Frequently the unit will record for several minutes, then shut down. I have tried Fuji and Sony DVD-R discs, and I tried a lens cleaning DVD. Shortly after purchase I returned the unit to JVC for replacement of software they admitted was glitchy, and which caused the unit to lock up in permanent "loading" mode. After repair the unit was okay for about a year. Now I feel that this unit is probably not worth struggling with. I am thinking of buying the Panasonic DMR-ED75VS combo unit instead. Any suggestions or advice?

If the device is still under warranty then it is worth calling and getting a repair/replacement. If not, then go with the new unit. it sounds like the one you have was not a very good unit to begin with. make sure you read the consumer reports on new available units before buying, so as to avoid buying another lemon.

We have a vcr/dvd, model dvp620vr/07, we are having probs recording our pics onto a dvd and having the recorder play it, our computer will, why not the vcr/dvd recorder, what kind of disc do we need to...

What program or software are you using to make the DVD? The DVD must be "finalized" before it can be read on an external device, such as a VCR/DVD player. PC's however, can handle the un-finalized (is that a word?) discs because it assumes you may want to add more files (pictures). Once the disc is finalized, no more files can be added to it.

Problems recording DVD-R 16X

Try this download page to update your firmware from 25/10/05, so if you bought your writer before this date maybe this will work, otherwise buy 8x discs. The faster the discs are burned the more chance of errors there are, you should write at slower speeds for better quality.
