    I get the "error detection" message with RAM-discs recorded previously on two different machines. The Samsung will play all of them and occasinally even record and format them if the error message doesn´t pop up.

You can get this if you´re using RAM-discs previously recorded/formatted on a different recorder. Clean the disc REALLY WELL and try inserting several times, it may pass.

Hello! I am trying to record movies from my VCR collection to make them on the DVD format. I place the tape in the VCR ...then add a "brand new" DVD into the DVD tray (Sony DVD+R)...I then...


You are probably using a disc format which is not compatible with this model unit. Try using DVD-R instead of DVD+R. That should eliminate your error - and work fine. Give it a try - at this stage it is most likely a set of incorrect DVD formats (you can keep any unrecorded/remaining DVD+R discs for your PC (if it supports them) and use them as data storage).

* Single layer DVD-R 4.7GB/120min/4-16X discs are relatively cheap in a spindle tub (25 or 50 discs) available everywhere. *

The good news is no repair costs at this stage.

Disc error "playback feature may not be available on this disc"


Hello arnita2211,

This error message is due to an improper format, that your dvd player can't handle. To correct this you need to use a program such as nero and in nero is a program called nero vision, that will recode the movie file into a dvd playable format.

You can download a trial of nero here
http://www.nero.com/enu/downloads-nero9-trial.php
You will have to purchase a license when the trial ends. Sorry we cannot give you a serial key for this as it is Illegal.

Thank you for trying Fixya!

Bought new discs will not initialise dvd -rw error message could not format due to error detection


I had a similar problem with CDs. The cure in my case was a new drive. It is possible that the lens on the laser is dirty in which case it should be cleaned. Your local shop should stock cleaning kits,

Says blank DVD-RW is not formatted, then formats -- then error


I have same TOSHIBA D-VR4XSU VCR/DVD RECORDER. According to the
manual, you (COULD) can use for recording: DVD-RAM, DVD-RW and DVD-R (see page 50). WRONG!!! I bought all 3 types of discs, but after few
weeks I got same experience you got now. Just type DVD-R works. The other
types were - wasted money and a lot of time trying to finalize the disc. I had to
throw all into the garbage. Try DVD-R and you should?? be O.K.

WRONG DISC ERROR MESSAGE.


Inside the machine the laser will sometimes adjust itself to a position just out of reach of the disc and you will get a "default message", so it doesn't necessarily mean you have the "wrong disc". This can be adjusted by yourself or take it in to be done. This is only, of course that you have covered the basics and cleaned the discs and inside machine. Just blow in it even, they do attract dust as dvd's are like a magnet to dust.

DVDs are not being played!!


If this is an older unit you need to purchase a cleaning disc. The cleaning disc gently removes dust from the laser eye in the unit. It can be purchased at youre local electronics retailer. If this is a new unit call the company and take advantage of the warranty.
