Device will not play previously recorded discs or record new info,but will play shop bought discs.on occasions it will display disc error. i am using new discs.

I Have had this same problem with DVD recorders. They sometimes will not play disc that were recorded on another player, you have to play these on the recorder that you used to make the recording. When recording you must finalize the discs to get them to play in other recorders, if they aren't finalized then the dvd wont recognize them as being recorded, there is no starting point set on the disc for the laser to pick up on. I have also ran into discs bought at the store that were not any good and I couldn't record on them, or when I did I would get the disc error message also. Try another brand of disc,say Memorex or Soney amd see if these will work, make sure they are compatible with the player, and they are the correct format for your player. There are 2 types DVD -R and DVD + R the + R work better on a wider range of players.

It will not play the dvd, it states ''no disc''

Usually "no disc" means that there may be condensation inside the dvd.

Bring the dvd into a warm room ,switch it on and leave for about 2 hours.Then retry.

The DVDR880 displays "IS TV ON?" when it is in factory mode. You need to switch the TV to the DVDR input, as the on-screen instructions will tell you how to proceed.

Playing recorded DVDs on PC or other DVD player

Recordings from your DVD recorder should play on other DVD players as long as you finalize the recording on your recorder.

A PC should recognise an un-finalized, but only in a DVD writer drive.

There is a firmware upgrade available for this model. Follow this link and select your particular country version DVDR3320/XX||type=CONSUMER||locale=gb_en||mode=prod_text||item=dvdr3320v||page=1||show=50&xsl=search_result.xsl

Select Software & Drivers and click on the link to the zip file.

Follow the on-screen instructions.
