Question about JVC HR-XVC27U DVD Player/VCR

DVD will not eject

I burned a DVD on my computer and, during the process of burning it, got an error message that there was not enough space to complete the operation. (Long story.) I had reason to believe that one video folder had gotten onto the DVD successfully. So, I put it in my JVC DVD player. It just sits there with a "rEAD" message on the front of it. Now it will not do ANYthing. I can't eject it. I can't play it. Nuthin'! HOW CAN I GET THIS FAULTY DVD TO EJECT . . . or . . . do I have to just take the darn DVD player apart? (I hope not.)
THANKS to anyone who can help. Good-karma vibes coming your way . . . .

    Thanks. I already have tried the option of fooling the unit into ejecting before it would read the disk. That didn't work. Looks like I may simply have to open 'er up --- something which I hoped to avoid. I'll do it in the morning, when I will be more patient --- I hope. I'm outta patience right now, and might break something by forcing it too hard, or sumpin' . . . . thanks again

Happened to me today. after searching the net, i came to the conclusion i had to take it apart. it was actually really simple to do though. 6 screws on the main case, that slides right off. then 2 more screws to take off the front piece. the screws are directly above the dvd drive. there are a few snap locks on the front piece, so once you get that piece off (which will dangle from a few wires, so be careful), you will be able to see a bunch of white, plastic gears at the front of the DVD drive. you can manually spin the biggest gear on the right with your finger, which will open the drive. once u pop out your dvd, spin it shut again, put it back together and you`re done. very easy.

Power off the unit, if it will not power off, unplug the unit for a few minutes, then plug back in.

press the power button (turning it on). Before it can attempt to read the disc, eject it.

Why is my dvd player always saying wrong disc


When it says wrong disk there must be a reason why. To test the system, you should put in a bought DVD, not one you burned yourself on the computer. If that DVD does not give a message, you know the player is 100%.
What could be wrong with self made disks?
First a normal DVD has a silver or gold layer to reflect the light coming from the laser. A disk you can burn yourself, has a dye, which changes colour when the laser burns its info. It ls less and less reflective, compared with the silver or gold plated ones.
Then when you have burned the DVD's from your computer, with a video format, other then the DVD format, most DVD players can't play that. There is only one DVD format and there are hundreds or different (not with DVD compatible) video formats, you can play on computer and MP4 players.
I hope this is enough info for now.

Hello trying to upgrade my HCT HBR-1000BP Blu-ray Player firmware and can not figure out how. No support on HCT website. Would be thankful for any help


Where are you having a problem? I found directions on: http://hcthk.com/mall/s02.php . There were two links, one with directions and one with an arrow for downloading the needed file.

The firmware is in a zip file. First extract the files from the compressed archived. (For a Windows OS, right click on the folder and select Extract All.) If needed, open the new uncompressed folder and put a blank CD-R or CD-RW in your optical burner drive. Burn the two files from the extracted folder to the CD (drag and drop will work for any version of Windows (XP-7).) Do not include the folder, just the files. Then finalize the disc (close the session). If you are asked to format the disc, choose a mastered burn (single-session). In Windows Explorer, you can do this by right-clicking on the optical drive in Computer (My Computer) or from the menu for the drive when you double-click on it. (Alternatively, if you have your system set to finalize on eject, then choose Eject. This setting is in the drive's Properties (the Recording tab).)

Eject the disc from your computer and turn on the HBR-1000BP. Place the CD that you burned in the player. When the disc is recognized, press Play. If that doesn't work, try entering the System Menu and choosing System Update with your remote. Do not power down the unit during the update; a power failure during the update might leave you with an unusable player.

If this doesn't work, check if the Blu-ray Player reads any CDs. If it doesn't, try cleaning the laser lens with a CD/DVD lens cleaner. Then try again. The Blu-ray uses a different laser. If no disc works and the lens cleaner doesn't help, the CD/DVD laser has a tracking (alignment) issue or another problem. You'll need to get the optical drive in the HBR-1000BP replaced or fixed.

If it does read a different CD, then check if your optical disc burned and was finalized correctly. Can another optical drive read it? Try burning the files to CD on another optical drive. (If you are using an external optical drive burner, make sure that the computer is not running on battery power. Plug the external drive into two USB ports if it isn't self-powered.)

I hope this helps.

Is it a DVD you burned ? Does every DVD do this ? Do commercial DVD's work ?

HR 720 does not burn to DVR -R media


Hallo everybody,

this guy "mysus" is a genius! I have had above problem on a Samsung HR-725 (160 Gb Version of the HR-720) now for approx. 1 year. I´ve called the Samsung Hotline and tried other dealers - nothing worked. Today I came accross this help and tried it out immediately - and it works perfectly. However, you do need to know a little about PCBs and electronics.
I used a variety of different -R DVDs and they all seem to work now. Many thanks once again for this fantastic link.

When I burn DVD's on my computer and play them on my DVD player, it says eject disc-playback feature may not be on this disc. I have played other computer burnt discs with no problems so I know my player...


hello... the solution to your problem is, at least try not to burn the disc with the Roxio software rather use Nero Startsmart essentials 7. the other thing is dont burn under the theme MP3 rather use data...if not download a codec for your player...

DVD will not finalize


Bad Disk batch is the most common problem if it is occuring with the same batch of dvds. Other problems could include that you need to get a firmware upgrade for higher speed discs. If you are using a disc that burns faster than the current speed of the machine you need to download the upgrade (follow the directions that are given in most dvd blank packs) and insert the CD that you downlaoded the program onto into the DVD player/recorder.
