Re: WILL NOT READ SOME BOUGHT MOVIE DISCS
One of the solutions before spending $$ is, you need to open the unit remove the dvd loader,CAREFULL OF PLUGS AND RIBBON CABLES!!! open the dvd loader, clean the laser GENTLY WITH A CLEAN COTTON TIP, and re assemble. if that doesnt fix the units issue,the second option is you will need to replace the dvd loader, part number is found on white or yellow sticker. hope this helps.

The disc is probably an incompatible format for this model player. Even if the disc is finalised in your PC, or in a DVD recorder, this player may still be unable to read it. Some DVD recorder/players do not recognise DVD+R (or +R DL) media, while others won't recognise +/-RW discs (except CD-RW); this is a model limitation - not a fault with either your player, the PC burning software or the discs themselves.
Nothing can be done to fix this except purchasing a model which accepts multimedia (+R/DVD-RAM etc). The question is, does your player play ANY normal DVDs? I am guessing your player will accept DVD-R DL discs just fine since this is standard as well as proper shop-bought movies.
> I tried recording a VHS to a DVD according to the instructions in the manual. There can hardly be instructions in the manual to do this since that model is not a DV Recorder, but if it isn't reading any DVD then you have a warranty problem assuming your unit is still within the warranty period. That unit is capable of recording DVD content to VHS tape but not the opposite.
If discs skip, freeze or doesn't read, along with the recording problem, then it could be a dirty lens. If cleaning lens doesn't fix it the optical p/u assembly will have to be replaced. Make sure the items you are trying to record aren't copy guarded.
The solution is simple.I rang LG service (so called - LOL) Asked for a fix or reset method. (Which can be done but they won't tell novices how) Got no joy, so now I will bin it,and spend the rest of my days telling people to avoid LG. After all the posts I have since read about the same problem on various LG models,it is obvious their product sucks,they know it does, but won't accept the responsibility. If I stop 4 people buying their ****,that's at least $1000 they miss out on. If the process snowballs,how much then$$ ? It would cost me $120 just to get it to and pick it up from the repair place. Plus parts and labour added. Before buying an LG DVD recorder go online and check out how many dissatisfied customers there are. In short, DO NOT BUY !!
The JVC DR-MV1S DVD Recorder / VCR Combo does not suppport DVD+R, only DVD-R, -RW etc.
At least mine only supports these formats, as when I first bought mine, I got some blank DVD's they were DVD+R.
I recorded a movie onto one on my PC, then tried playing it in the JVC unit... no go!
Instruction manual (available for D/load online) proved to me that I could not play +R disks!!
