Question about Samsung DVD-R155
When I put a blank DVD-R in my DVD player with the intention of recording, I get the following message "The disc cannot be played, please check the disk" I have put several brand new discs in and get the same message. This is brand new DVD player.
Heating issue. If you remove the cover and touch the processor chip - you will not be able to keep your finger there for more than a second (that is if your really want to use this crude method to test the temp).
I have taken measurement and its around 50C. Thats a lot for no heatsink or cooling fan.
If you have the unit in a cabinet with no air flow - you will not be able to use this unit for more than 3 months and up to a year. Best to have it on top of a cabinet or in one with an open front and back to allow some airflow - or just anywhere where its in the open.
Samsung has another unit - the AR650, which I believe is discontinued - which for some strange reason has realized this concern. My guess its a whole different team of designers (or at least some folks with some brains) and added a cooling fan into the unit. Its the same exact case and motherboard as the 135, and 155. There are absolutely no issues with it rejecting disc's - even after a year of use for some users.
Solution 1 - Place it in the open
Solution 2 - Remove case and drill holes to the topside
Solution 3 - Remove case and add a fan
Solution 4 - Remove case and add a heatsink over proc (will still need to drill holes over heatsink..
Solution 5 - We can all complain to Samsung and have them recall the units

Here are some corrections of comments made by other people.
1 R155 can record on DVD-RAM/-RW/-R/+RW/+R. See page 32 of the DVD-R150 / DVD-R155 Instruction Manual.
2 DVDs recorded on the R155 are not unplayable on other devices. I have another three DVD players that all play R155 recorded material.

I spoke to Samsung Customer Care and they have told me that none of their DVD Recorders support DVD+ ; you can only use DVD-
Also you cannot use HD only BluRay.
I am now going to take all the DVDs back to Comet and change them - as they sold them to me as they said they were compatible.

Also they have lockouts
meaning you cannot watch the dvd on any other dvd player unless it is the one the disk was originally recorded on

I also had this problem with this recorder. This recorder seems to only be able to use DVD-R and DVD-RW disks that are either 2X or 4X.
