Question about RCA RC5215P DVD Player

1 Answer

Wrong Format I recently purchased the Simpson Season 1 DVD. Disk 1 kept giving me the message about the disk not formatted to my player. I took it back to the store where I purchased it and exchanged for a new one. Now disk 2 says it not formatted for my player. Is there anything that can be down to fix this?

I have a feeling this might be a region issue. If your DVD is the correct region for your country (check it against this list)
1: United States, United States Territories, Caribbean, and Canada
2:
Europe (including British and French territories), Japan, South Africa, and the Middle East
3:
Southeast Asia
4:
Latin America, Australia, and New Zealand
5:
Russia/Eastern Europe, Central and South Asia, and Africa (except Egypt, South Africa, Swaziland, and Lesotho)
6: China
(7: unused)
8: airlines/cruise ships

then your DVD-player might not be set up properly or may be faulty. Have a look at the settings and make sure the correct region code is set up in your player. If you find a "0" as the region code it means your player can play all regions.

SOURCE: Can't view DVD's burned from the tv on a DRC8335 RCA DVD recorder

If you do not finalize the disc then you can not play it back. Go back to your instruction manual and look under 'setting options'. There should be a choice to 'finalize disc before ejecting'. The recorder will not finalize a disc until it knows when you are done recording, so you have to tell it somehow.

SOURCE: I have a dvd recorder/player Rca DRC8052N

What I did that worked flawlessly was press setup on the remote, go to general and go down to restore. Hit Yes to restore factory settings and all is well. :) You should now be able to play all of your region 1 discs with no issue. This is using the RCR192DA1 Remote with The RCA DRC8052 DVD Recorder.

Hope This Help!

More than likely the DVD drive in your unit is bad.

Why is my dvd player always saying wrong disc


When it says wrong disk there must be a reason why. To test the system, you should put in a bought DVD, not one you burned yourself on the computer. If that DVD does not give a message, you know the player is 100%.
What could be wrong with self made disks?
First a normal DVD has a silver or gold layer to reflect the light coming from the laser. A disk you can burn yourself, has a dye, which changes colour when the laser burns its info. It ls less and less reflective, compared with the silver or gold plated ones.
Then when you have burned the DVD's from your computer, with a video format, other then the DVD format, most DVD players can't play that. There is only one DVD format and there are hundreds or different (not with DVD compatible) video formats, you can play on computer and MP4 players.
I hope this is enough info for now.

My 2004 tahoe z71 overhead drop-down dvd player message dish format error is that means my dvd player is bad need new one or something i can do to fix i?


Hello there and welcome to Fixya :
No there is nothing wrong with your player the message you are receiving is telling you that the format of the disk is of the wrong format and the player can not play that type of format.
Normally when a disk is coppied it is done in a certain type of format whether it be wmp or mda or somthing like this there are several different types out there. so if you have a player that takes only a certain type of formattted disk you will need to format the disk to that type of format before it can play. ok
Hope this helps i can help you more if needed ok
Best regards Mike

Formatting disk


You should not format a dvd-r disc as it is a record once disc and formating is a recording function. The message "use a +r/rw" is telling you that the system will only recognise a + disc and not a - disc.

Some DVDs will play and some won't.


I learned that the first few season of West Wing were recorded in a different format. I bought another DVD player ($30) and they work fine.

Cant transfer footage from Canon DC201 onto computer (and eventually internet) Do I need specialist software to take video from DVD to computer?


You don't need specialist software to take video from DVD to computer.

One of two things has gone wrong
1. Your PC cannot read the -R DVD format, or, more likely
2. You have not finalised the disk.

You must finalise the disk in the camcorder before putting it in the PC. To finalise the disk you must have the power adapter connected to the camera, plugged into a wall socket and turned on. Then go to the main menu, select 'disk operations' and you'll see an option to finalise disk. Don't move or shake the camera whilst the finalising step is underway.

Once finalising is complete, put the disk into the PC.
