Panasonic dmr-ez49veb wont play dvd-r discs

I have just bought a Pan dmr-ez49veb after my diahatsu combi finally conked out & is now apparently obsolete.I have lots of taped off TV stuff on both dvd+ & dvd- not really knowing the difference & as both worked on the dia,not really bothered.I find though this Pan only plays the Dvd+ discs & says the Dvd- ones are IncompatiblE even though the instructions hint this disc ShoulD be More compatible. I,m not technically minded so finalising,burning & downloading go over my head & the thought of taping of those progs again turns my stomach,Help?

I would suggest contacting Panasonic support. You can search for their website/home page for their contact numbers. Typically, manufacturers maintain help, support, upgrade, forums and FAQs/knowkedge bases to help customers troubleshoot their appliances/equipment. I have used similar methods, previously, to update/upgrade the firmware on an "obsolete" DVR and it has lasted 4 more years (still working).

I have three Panasonic DVD recorder/Vhs combos and I get the same problem from time to time...it may be the disks you are using.  Mine absolutely hate Sony disks.  I have the best luck with TDK or Maxell.  You also must clean your unit frequently, if you do alot of recording.  I use my units daily.

Hope this helps

When you say downloaded movies are they avi's, vob's mpegs, mov's or windows media files? Which files are you using on the cds? what software are you using to burn the discs? When you burn onto cds are you creating VCD's or just data discs. When you burn onto a RW disc it cannot be finalised. I think you are possibly either not using mpegs or vobs or you discs are not being finalised. (When i say vobs i mean dvd compiled and compatible discs)

SOURCE: DMR-EZ48V- DVD drive not working

Check Panasonic.com for Firmware updates. If it has a reset button reset it. Take off the cover remove dust and lint, also clean laser eye with rubbing alcohol. DO NOT LOOK DIRECTLY AT THE LASER LENS IF YOU PLUG IT IN, DURING THE OPERATION.

I follow the manual, but when I press EDIT the option to split isnt even there? I am confused, it is SUCH a difficult manual to deciphre, but the only 2 options there are "Edit title name" and "Change Thumbnail".

My Dad recorded all his VHS tapes and made DVD's on the Panasonic DVD Recorder DMR-ES30V and now they wont play on any DVD player except for the DMR-ES30V. I believe he recoreded them with a lock so they...


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

My compliments to the foresight of your father. Your described concern is not caused by a "lock". It is indicative that the recording session was not 100% completed. Rather than 'crack', what is required is the final step in the recording. All the DVDs must be "finalized" in the same machine that recorded the movies, the Panasonic DVD Recorder DMR-ES30V. The finalize option would be in the MENU/Settings and must be enabled. Finalization per disc would take some time.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Will my non finalzied discs play on a panasonic ez 28 or ex 768


You will have no problem playing your non finalized discs on any of the Panasonic DMR range including the DMR EZ28 series. The DMR E55 can also easily be repaired if you can use a soldering iron and a little care. Please checkout my other postings for full repair details.
Cheers...

We need to narrow down where the problem lies. Even without finalizing the disc, you should be able to play back the recording. Can you do this? If you can play back the recording, the problem exists in the finalization stage and we'll need to concentrate there. Please update this and we'll proceed to the next step.

Thanks,
Viper

The disc drive motor is burned out, its junk...if you didn't finalize the discs, they're junk too unless you buy another Panasonic DMR.
