When I insert a blank DVD+R to copy a VHS, It reads the disk, says "Unknown Disk" and ejects it. How do I record if I can't keep a disk in the machine?


some discs don't work in some recorders. I always use verbatim, ritek or tdk discs and have very few problems. if the recorder suddenly dislikes a batch of one brand, I'll use one of the others.

Hello
Have you tried another USB port on the computer ,also try uninstalling and reinstalling Nero apart from that it could be a fault with the laser lense on the drive itself and will have to be repaired or in this case time to buy another one.

Trying to copy VHS to Disc-Says"Unknown disc"


Hi,

how long have you been using the player and has it ever accept blank DVD-R discs in the past.

The problem might be as a result of weak laser (lens) or the blank discs inserted might not be compatible with player.

When the laser(lens) of a player becomes weak, it will not be able to read blank discs. It only takes a very strong laser to read/accept blank discs. If it happens that the laser (lens) is the cause of the problem, then it means you will need to replace the laser (lens) to a brand new one to be able to read blank disc. Though the player might be playing DVD and CD, note that blank disc is stronger when it comes to reading from the laser (lens), it requires sharper laser. I hope you understand this.

So, insert a CD into the player and observe if it will play.If it plays, then its obvious that your laser is very weak.

Concerning the incompatibility issue, I hope you are aware that there are various kinds of empty DVD discs such as DVD +, DVD -, DVD RW. Try any of this empty DVD discs as one of them as to be compatible with this DVD recorder.

Amongst the two topics discussed above, one has to be the cause of the problem. So its up to you to figure out which is the cause of the problem.

I hope you understand the above....

I wish you good luck.

After copying the dvd video content, and inserting the blank disc, Roxio does not recognize the blank disc and continues to say 'please insert blank disc' I have tried both DVD R and DVD WR. Please help!


If your roxio software does not read or recognize the disc that you are using, you can use other brands of disc to check if the disc that you are using is not compatible with the software.


Cheers . . .

When it comes time for me to copy my dvd...it prompts me to insert a blank dvd-r...i insert a blank dvd-r and it kicks the disc back out telling me to insert a blank dvd-r. Do i have to do something...


This is a common problem. RW DVD are different types. You need to read what type of RW DVD you need there will be either a nimber, leter or symbol at the end of where it says RW DVD or DVD RW and you CANNOT use just any disc.

Dell PC unable to read blank discs


There is a easy solution! Buy a new DVD burner...

I went through 2 DVD burners in one year (I bought a really cheap "mad dog" DVD burner...never again to say the least). I saw a "insert disc", even though there was already a disc in the burner, and thought "I'm not paying for a new burner, I'll fix this one...". I eventually got it to work again, but all that I got was corrupt disc after corrupt disc.

I'll bet that it still reads CD's fine doesn't it? Yeah? Well then, trust me, buy a new one. It'll save you time, money (you won't waste all those DVD/CD's), headaches, moments of depression, anxiety, frustration, and your sanity.

Except no substitutes of a solution. Don't go through what I did...

I also suggest ccleaner (freeware) from filehippo.com to clean out the system and not only run the "Analyze/Clean", but also verify "Tools/Startup" and uncheck ANY program that you are unsure of.

When i try to copy dvd it keeps telling me to insert blank disc even though one is in there i can burn cds but not dvd it tells me to put in writeable disk and ive put in dvdr-w and dvd-r and still it...


Go to the device manager to insure your optical drive is in fact a DVD/RW. You should also be able to tell by looking at the front of the drive and see what it says. If it says CD Writable or DVD Rom, you cannot do it. Kind of sounds like you have a CD/RW-DVD Rom combination drive, which does not allow the burning of DVD's.

Let me know, OK.

Unable to copy dvd's


Most dell machines do no come with dvd rewriting as standard. They only come with cd rewriting capability. Unless you specifically requested it as an add on to the spec it probably just has the ability to pay dvd's.

Most internet cafe's will have a machine with a dvd rewriter if you really need to copy a dvd
