Question about Samsung DVD-VR330 VCR and DVD Recorder
Just trying to transfer video tapes to disc. I can't get past loading a new blank DVD(Memorex DVD-RW 4x, 4.7GB, 120 min). When disc is inserted, readout says 'load' for 35 seconds, then says 'open', which it does. I cannot get past this point.
The DVD-RW will work at random, some brands will wok better than others. Memprex, Sony, Maxell are 3 I can use sometimes. Once the disk is accepted it must be formatted. Click that and if accepted, first do a record for say 2 minutes to see if ti works.
If it works don't take it out until you're ready to finalize it.
That's mostly so the disk will be readable in other players, should it not want to go back in, you probably lost the record.
Don't write on the back, use a card and keep it in the cover.
Sometimes I can use those disk's in PC for data.

Hello, First be sure your using the correct disc DVD+ or DVD- RW etc.
I would recomend using high quality discs as players/recorders are very picky about cheap media. Try using Imation name brand discs. They read well in most anything. If it has worked fine & then started having this problem I would first check to see if your using the same discs that have always worked with it & if so then you may want to open the unit & clean the laser lens with a cotton swab lightly soaked in rubbing alcohol. Especially if it has been smoked around or is in a dusty environment.

This is a common fault and usualy caused by the DVD drive going faulty, The Lazer changes angle as it records across the disc and at about 80% there is a change point.
I suggest putting a cleaner DVD through the unit before you try anything else as a bit of dust can cause that problem. If that doesn't fix it than you may need to change the DVD loader unit as a whole or as you suggested by a new modern unit with even more features.
