Re: "please wait"!

Is there not a drawer open/close button? Please wait usually indicated wrong type of disk and it is not being read or faulty laser. Switch it off and switch on then press the drawer release before it starts trying to read.

How can I copy all HDD's data in LG HDD/DVD Recoder RH1888HS by my computer or Laptop?

If the unit is under warranty...DON'T DO THIS.

open up the unit and remove the hard disk.
If you have a desktop, connect the drive like you would any other hard disk.
If the drive does NOT show up under My Compujter, then the format is proprietary, and all you can do is back up the drive with a program like Acronis True Image (you must have more free space on your hard disk than the DVR's drive size...if the DVR has a 500G hard disk, you need 500G of free space on your desktop drive).
If the drive DOES show up with a drive letter under Computer, then create a directory on the C drive and simply drag and drop all the files from the DVR hard disk (E: or whatever it makes itself) to this folder. The files may still be in a proprietary format and unplayable though.
If you are trying to play the files on the computer, I suggest using VLC player. It plays almost everything in the universe.

I Have a 1999 Sanyo DVD Recoder that will not read movies I burn from my Laptop Why is this so?

Well here is the resolution for your problem.

Well that happen so because your Sanyo DVD Player/Recoder is not compatible with the video format you burn it from your laptop so first of all go through the manual of your Sanyo DVD Recoder and find out what kinda video format's are really compatible with it.

Than after burn the CD in that format from your Laptop. It will work.

If you still have any more quarries regarding to it please write back to me.

Please wait!

You can probably turn it off and back on and push the button really quick as it is coming on to get it to open and let you have the disc. Once it is open you might want to try blowing it out to make sure there isn't any dust in there. That could be causing the problem.
