Recently I've had trouble while one touch record mode. The trouble is the unit freezes up, I cant 'stop', I cant 'eject' I need to get up & unplug the unit from the wall and reset it. This eliminates the recording to that point & the disc is ruined. anyone ever heard of this before and is there a solution ?

Which model do you have? Some of the GoVideo DVD/VCR units are only DVD players so you can only record to the VHS tape. If you have a DVD writer version, you may find it tedious but doable. First load the blank DVD and set the Disc Record mode (you will see an on-screen prompt) for VR (this lets you do more editing of the video) or Video (this choice is compatible with more players). Then set the REC Mode by pressing that button repeatedly (SP (2 hours per disc), LP or XP(1 hour per disc). For one-touch recording (recording the current program that you are receiving on the device), select your Channel and Audio track then press REC. If you press REC several times, you will set when the recording stops. Otherwise it will not end until you press STOP.
For timed recording, press Timer Record. Then go through all the items to set the DVD recording information. Record mode, Channel, start and stop times. The left and right arrows let you change menu sections and the up down scroll through the settings. Press Enter to save the programmed recording. Then press Return. Make sure blank media (or with enough room for the programmed item) is in the machine. On some units, you will need to turn off the machine for the Timed Recording to work.
For recording from external sources, press Input instead of Channel.
For any recording, leave a bit of extra space on the disc to Finalize the DVD if you will want to play the disc on other players.
Maybe the format of your recorded movie didnt support your player..check out your manual for the supported formats and check the format of your recorded movie.If any of the format in the manual matches your movie format then it will definitely play..
please rate my suggestion..
Insert the DVD-R into your recorder and press the STOP button. Press the MENU button then the directional keys until DISK MANAGER is highlighted. Press the directional buttons to highlight UN-FINALIZE and press enter.
If you format your DVD instead of using the EZ-Record mode you can add additional recording and finalize when you are ready to.
Tip: Go to Samsung.com and search for your model and view the FAQ section. Lots of good info.
