Question about LG Electronics LRM-519 Digital Media Recorder
Hello, I accidentally inserted a CDRom of Windows XP which deleted the internal Firmware and now the Recorder doesn't read any disk. The LG service said I need to substitute the mother board because the Firmware cannot be re-loaded by a CD. Anyone knows how to write the Firmware (which I have in .bin and .cin file) into the mother board without using the standard way using a CDRom? Thanks a lot for your help.

Recently purchased a unit... You can imagine the joy when I found in Manual: Audio discs can only play if in .mpg or .wma formats! Yes, all the bells and whistles except the most basic of functions such as all common audio formats. Other portable $99 dvd player works with them.

Enter 0000 on the remote
A Congratulations message comes up.

I have had this on a number of other players. First try the disks in question on another DVD player after giving them a thorough clean. If they work there then you know the problem is not with the disks.
After that (assuming the RH299 is actually working in every other respect e.g. on HDD), run a laser cleaning DVD/CD in the machine to clean the laser lens. If your machine is out of warranty then you can try opening it and cleaning the laser lens with rectified spirits/pure alcohol. Then try the disks again. If they still don't play, then it's off to a local electronics expert to see if realigning or replacing the laser and transport mechanism is economically viable, or buy a new machine.

I have this same junk DVD recorder(LG model dr787T). At the time, it was the most expensive one in the store, my wife got it for my birthday. It always had reading problems with DVDs, most of the time it would say "NO DISC" even good brand new movies. This thing is a worthless piece of junk and LG should take them back and replace them. I had contacted LG about a year ago about it, they just told me how to reset it. It doesn't help. I haven't touched the thing in months now, but just tried to burn something tonight and now I've wasted an hour trying to get it to work, that's why I'm online, checking to see if I can find any secrete to make this thing work right.
