I'm new to all this and I had difficulties at first. I had dvd+r and they did not work. I bought dvd-r and they were fine. Maybe this is something simple everyone knows but if not, I hope it helps

The recorder supports these formats
DVD-RW · DVD-R · DVD+R · DVD+RW

There shouldn't be a problem with the speed, maybe a compatibility issue with brands.

Also it might be your lens is dirty have you tryed a cd/dvd lens cleaner disk? dry/wet?

Cannot format an empty dvd recordable disc


Only DVD-RW discs can be formatted. If it is a DVD-R and you have already tried recording on it, the disc will be unusable. If the disk is not formatting, it might be defective. Try using another disk in the drive to make sure it isn't your DVD drive itseld that is broken.

My LiteOn LVW-1101 Erasing DVD's Hi, Hope you can help me with this problem as Im not techically minded? I own a LiteOn LVW-1105HC and after recording DVD's(even DVDR's) I put the disc back in to...


Your lite on has lost its mind and needs replacement.

Meanwhile a non rewritable disk cannot be erased. If not finalized it may not be read on another machine but the originating machine can read it.

My drv/vcr recorder wont record,i'v tried several dvd's and it wont read them it keeop saying it cant be recored on


Most dvd/VCR combo's dont record to DVD but record from the DVD to the VCR. If yours doesnt say DVDR DVDRW+ or DVDRW- then it doesnt write to DVD.

The program says to put in a dvdr it kicks it out


Make sure there are no fingerprints on the DVD you're trying to copy on.
Make sure it's set up to copy on to the DVD instead of to a CD.
Make sure you have an actual DVD in the drive instead of a CD.
Make sure there are no scratches on your DVD.
Try a few other DVD disks, pref different brands in case you bought a bad package.
Make sure the drive in your computer is capable of recording DVD and that it's not just a CD player/recorder.

I have a dvdr3380 lately when i put in disc it says disc unrecord


Test the created DVD with TMPGEnc v4.0 Xpress here is the free trial link It has a read source function that will fail if the DVDR has not been authored correctly.

If this works and scans in the full DVDR then I suggested that you buy a branded DVD+R like Philips who created the format, if this still fails I think you DVDR 3380 will need a service.

LOL

Cannot copy files to DVD disks


First of all you should have the recording tab ON. Have you tried burning using Nero instead of dragging and dropping? This may solve the problem.

However, if you prefer to drag and drop, try setting the write speed to a slower setting, even if the dvd burner has faster write capabilities.

1. I do not think it is a hardware issue.

2. You can try replacing the IDE cable, but if you can read the contents of the disk it does not suggest a communication issue between the drive and mobo.

3. I do not think that the burning software is to blame, when you drag and drop you are actually using a windows based burning software that is installed with the operating system.

4. set up your files to burn through nero, let the software do the work.

I had the same issue with my dvd burner, although slightly different error messages, solved it by using nero instead.

Can't read blank DVD for recording / can't transfer film from HD to dvd


I presume at this stage you have tried a different type of dvd disc and not just the one type and you are using the correct format dvdr for your machine.If you have tried all this it could be the laser,but make sure you try everthing else before replacing optic assy.
