Re: dvd recording

Could it be the write speed of the disc, try a slower rewriteable and see if it improves any???

Re: dvd recording

A lot of people put too much in cd\dvd disk. In order to 'close' you must give at least 1.44meg [simulor to 3 1/2' floppy space] I read someware up to 3 megbytes! As suggested by Mr. Guest

I have an ilo dvd ro4 and when I put a disc in it says invalid disc

Laser is either dirty or starting to wear out.It may also not be a compatible disc,not all brands of discs work in this model.The unit records on R+Rw+ discs 4x speed or slower.Variable speed discs1x-16x will also work.
Most of the time it is just a dirty laser that can read the disc,to clean laser use a commercial laser cleaning disc,Phillips and Maxell work well in this model.Put a drop of rubbing alcohol on cleaning brushes.

This unit only uses DVD +R or +RW. I have found the Maxell works the best with mine.

Ilo dvd recorder do not recognize any dvd

According to that this unit is very picky on what discs it will record on. Look up unit and read the large number of reviews in DVD Recorder section

Dvd player and analog tv

You're not trying to use the "Tuner" in the ILO are you? Bypass it and use the A/V cables from the "out" of the converter box. I think mine also has the coax type cable from the "to tv" to the ILO, then from the "to tv" on the ILO to the television. Either way should work. Mine works great, its a zenith and I have successfully recorded to discs in my ILO. Just change the Source back to the DVD source to watch a dvd or select the corresponding A/V connections that are hooked to your convertor box to watch/record television.

ILO Recorder DVD05R - Playback jumps 10min, 20 min and more...

Does the disc still play in other dvd player? My ILO has always been picky to play rentals so I just have a cheap COBY player hooked up to front inputs of my ILO. I use it to watch the dvds, only use the Ilo to record. Saves wear and tear on my ILO but cannot find a universal remote to operate them both and my tv. If it still records okay thats what I would do, just watch the discs in a secondary unit. Sounds like time to start shopping for new recorder.

ILO DVDR05 recorded DVD's freeze

Burn your DVDs at tow positions slower than what the system and discs say. It sounds as if there is a huge amount of error being introduced during the write process. Unfortunately, the old discs can only be recovered with an external program like Zero Assumption Recovery or the like....accordianman

I purchased the DVDRo4 and its been pretty reliable so far.

These R04 are fickle,some Brands of DVD discs won't work in ILO,try another brand.Also clean laser in iLO it may be dirty,use commercial cleaning disc,put a drop of rubbing alcohol on brushes.Do not use any other chemical.
It is possible you laser is defective or starting to go.If that's the case you need to replace burner/loader.
Some dvd recorders formulate a little differently,I have made recordings in my iLo that won't work in all brands of players/recorders.
