My machine has also done this since it was new. I was just about to bring it in for repair when I thought I would try one more thing. I turned on the recorder. I put in the movie that would not play and let it load (of course it would not load). I pushed the on/off button on the recorder and held it down until the "wait" message came up on the display. After the message disappeared I turned the recorder back on. To my surprise the movie loaded and played. I tried all the other movies I had trouble with and they also played. I hope this helps. I saved my self over 200 dollars in repair bills. I was quite surprised at the lack of help from toshiba.

Recording (toshiba dvr player se-r0265


Number SE-R0265 is not a Player. It is the model number of the Remote Control for a player.

However, your question is somewhat generic for all Player/Recorders. First you must use good original manufactures DVD media for recording. TY (Taiyo Yuden) is the Toshiba recommended media in many of its manuals. Verbatim and Fuji are also very good. They are more expensive, but very much worth the extra cost in reliability and headaches. Also, some older recorders will have trouble recording/playing back/finalizing newer 8X or 16X faster media. Try to by 4X and slower media if you are having problems, even with the three recommended above.

Second, DVD-R or R/W media has to be 'Finalized' before it can play on other recorders. DVD media do not. Try using DVD media if you continue to have trouble. Also, there are two recording/format types you can choose to record with on your DVDR Recorder, Video and VR, on -R/W media. Video is automatic Video format only on DVD media and do not need to be formatted (I think) before use or finalized after done recording.
If you are still having trouble using -R/W DVDs on other players, Try DVD DVDs in Video Format.

Finally, Toshiba is know for DVD media sensitivity. Many of their recorders have Firmware upgrades. Be sure you have the latest by looking in your manual to find your Firmware Version, then check out Toshiba's support site for any upgrades. But, start with good media, finalizing -R/W media, using Video disc format, then using DVD media, in this order.

DVDs from DVR don't play on any other DVD player


yes when you have finished the recording and preferably when the disc is full the disc must be finalised to be compatible with other players but be aware if you finalise a disc you cannot record on it anymore

What format are you recording in?If the recorder is set for DVD +R, and your playback machine won't read the disc, you may need to record on a DVD-R, or a DVD +-R. Or vice-versa. Some DVDRW discs will record on one machine and won't play on another. The media are incompatible. Another problem - if you are copying a copy-protected disc, it might not play back either. Are you sure you are finalizing the disc? This process takes 4-5 minutes and requires two or three responses sometime.

A lot of the functionality you are wanting is tied to the remote that you have misplaced. You can go to the Pioneer support site and order a new remote, though it is like $30.

As for wiring options to record, it depends on the inputs and outputs that are available on your television.
- Ideally, connect VCR to TV input "1", connect DVR output to TV input "2", and conect TV output to DVR. This will help you avoid any copy protection issues you run into, but not all TV sets have both audio and video output.
- If you don't have TV outputs, connect VCR out to DVR in, and then DVR out to TV in. This will definitely work, but you will have to have the DVR turned on to watch a VCR tape.
