Disk won't eject Error message: System error is detected System error is detected BE file:\Dvdv_util.c, line:264 Sensecode( 3: 2: 0), Detail:0x0


When operating, errors happen. Turn off the device.

(To turn off, press and hold the power button on the front
of the device for 10 seconds.)

After turning off, press the Open button and remove the
disc from the device
If needed reset the device to its factory settings after the disc is ejected. To reset it to factory settings:

Press the [UP] and [DOWN] buttons on

your DVD recorder simultaneously

when the power is on. All settings

including the password will revert to

the factory settings. Do not use this

unless absolutely necessary.

(Note that this function is possible only
when no disc is inserted.)

Trying to dubb video from hard drive to dvd-r and error 14 keeps coming up on the screen. thanks sylvie

Well, by now I'm sure that you know to clear the code, you press the "Display" button a few times. As for getting the Toshiba to actually burn a DVD, I'm not certain that I can help you there, as I've run into problems burning stuff. Unfortunately, it doesn't burn all the time, even if you use the same routine as the last successful burn.

DVD will not eject

Power off the unit, if it will not power off, unplug the unit for a few minutes, then plug back in.

press the power button (turning it on). Before it can attempt to read the disc, eject it.

I am trying to burn a dvd which come up not enough space on the disk. Could you please advise how I can compress the information to copy onto one disk. I have a Liteon 20X writer.

Depends what file types you'd like to compress. You can try compressing them the with Winrar or Winzip into an archive but if you're talking about videos, mp3 or photos than it is highly unlikely that Winrar or Winzip can help you unless you're talking about small lack of space.

DVD will not finalize

Bad Disk batch is the most common problem if it is occuring with the same batch of dvds. Other problems could include that you need to get a firmware upgrade for higher speed discs. If you are using a disc that burns faster than the current speed of the machine you need to download the upgrade (follow the directions that are given in most dvd blank packs) and insert the CD that you downlaoded the program onto into the DVD player/recorder.

Try using 8x and lower DVDs and -R ones; try cleaning with CD cleaning disk and then try recording a few min again. If that doesn't help try unplugging and waiting about 30min then put in disk that was previously recorded and go to last item and play it to end (if 2hr long skip to last skip and then play until it finishes) - now try just recording a few min using the manual DVD record button and see if error comes up again - usually this unplugging somehow resets everything. Hope this helps ya'll.
