Question about GPX D1816 DVD Player

1 Answer

I have transferred several video cassettes onto DVD discs (TDK) with good results except two discs, which I have previously viewed okay but now show as "BAD" on my player. Both have only been viewed two or three times and have been handled carefully by their edges. Worried now that additional "good" discs may suddenly show as"BAD" for no apparent reason. Since all other discs are okay, it would seem to point to the discs, not the player. Why? All comments appreciated. Jack B

My TDK 5900 CD recorder will not read CD-R 52x discs. Is there a software/firmware upgrade that will correct this?

The CD-R audio is not an obsolete format. Here's one set of writable discs from Amazon:*Version*=1&*entries*=0 . It is not the cheapest CD format, but they are out there. Amazon lists several other brands of CD-R Audio.

I hope this helps.

Taking scenes from DVD discs to compile in a new DVD disc

Hi Swash,

If i understood right, you want to take parts from some DVD's you have and edite them to paste them all together in a costume DVD?

If this is what you are asking for, why dont you try a video editing softwarem, or simply movie maker (if it is installed on your PC)

If this is not what you mean, please be more specific on what your problem is.

Thank you

Not recording? Wont let me retrieve anything. Says end of tape with a blank screen.

Did you test the previously recorded photos, or with a recorded cassette? if it is not showing the prerecorded pictures it means there is some problem with the video head, eject the cassette look the head drum carefully, if there any dirt on the head, clean it with a head cleaner cassette.(put the cleaner cassette in and play it,it will play for 3 minutes only, rewind the cassette and ply several times). some old cassette also will not give good result, if your system too old, the head may be weak so that you have to replace it.

I have one of the combi machines and wish to change from my own tapes onto a dvd disc. I can see by the manual that it can be done but it might as well be written in Greek! I am a lady in my seventies so...

Good Morning

How did we fix our problem? Well, last night our grandson called and showed us how to do the recording from cassette to disc, so now we have to get the right discs and we will be okay. Thanks for you trying to help.

I have recorded from Vhs tape to a DVD-R. When I insert DVD-R to play in Emerson EWD2202 it tells me that playback feature may not be available on this disc. Emerson's manual says it will play DVD-R....

Without sounding too pretentious, I would first advise you to use a QUALITY disc for exactly this reason! Don't be afraid to spend a little more on some TDK or Hitachi/Maxell DVDs! **** DVDs will fail as much as 25-40% of the time, making them no bargain at all!!

That being said, I would also inquire as to exactly what methods/products were used in the transfer process. There are several different ways of writing data to the disc (DAO, TAO, etc...), as well as many different video formats (did you select "Make a video CD" from your application? This will only work in digital video disc players, NOT DVD players!). Only a few (if that) will typically work on any given player.

On that note, my advice would first be to copy the data from the disc back onto your PC if possible (if it isn't still there already), or even from the VHS tape again, and take a look at the file name, particularly the extension, of the copied video file(s). If the extension is not .mpg or .mpeg, then it is NOT in DVD format, and converting to the appropriate format would be a necessary part of your transfer process. Also, make sure you are creating a DVD, not a video disc! They are different! Rewrite the data to the disc in the appropriate format on good quality media using the same process as before and you should be good to go!

I hope this helps! If not, please comment with any additional information and I will respond ASAP and we will get things figured out for you. Thanks for your questions!

Viewing a recorded DVD+R on PC

I am assuming you have an actual dvd drive of some sort installed in your computer. The problem you may be having is a missing codec. This problem can be solved by downloading a VLC player which has most needed codecs pre installed. This program is freeware and can be easily found online. I hope this helps. Good Luck!
