Question about iLO DVDR05 DVD Recorder
It tells me to change disc. I'm using the recommended DVD+R discs (Phillips) but it still won't finalize. I don't know how to download firmware. It keep telling me something about the file ext. and takes me to the microsoft website. I have no clue what to do there. Can you offer any suggestions please. Thanks.
This model records on slow speed discs 4x or slower R+RW+,you never finalzie RW+only R+It will also records on variable speed discs 1x-16x.Do not use 8x or 16x discs will damage laser.The laser could be dirty use commerical disc cleaner and a drop of rubbing alcohol on brushes.Try another brand of discs not all will record on this model.Also laser may be begining to fail.If thats the case you need to replace burner/loader.411s or 451s liteon burners are stock in these models.401s and 813s will also work.
You may not need to upgrade firmware If you do you can download to a CD if you have a PC.Go to iLO.com.This is for RO4 or RHDR4 not R05.Once you have firmware disc push system buttom,the word system will be circled in yellow, cue to the right,cue down to default then cue to right to the word restore,push enter it will say system will reboot.open disc tray and put in firmware disc ,cue to yes and push enter.WORD OF CAUTION DO NOT UNPLUG OR SHUT OFF WHILE IN REBOOT RESTORE MODE (it will destroy mainboard)wait till it finishes,TV screen will say when completed.when done the disc tray door will open on it's own,REMOVE FIRMWARE disc and then power off.Wait a few seconds and then push power button back on.The regular blue screen will appear.

Try a different brand of disc. Some of them are picky about the brand they will read. I ahd a machine that will not read memorex...but Maxell, NO PROBLEM.

If assume that it will take the disk in, and then after about 10 seconds the disk returns to the open posistion.
if this is the scenario, on these units there is a switch located in the front of the DVD drawer that usually goes bad. This switch tells the Ilo that the drawer is fully closed. You may want to check and replace that switch. I own two of these units and both of these switches went bad.

Try removing the top, then remove the metal plate that covers the DVD tray. After that metal plate is removed, then push door open and see if the door responds. On this unit those plates get warped somehow. If this causes the door to open, then gently bend that plate just slightly up in the middle.
