Problems with a disc that keeps reading unformatted

Hi there I have a disc that was working perfectly and it had some movies on it. Today i decided to record another movie onto and then decided part way that i didn't want it. So i stopped it recording and then went to the menu, selected the one that i wanted to delete and then proceeded to delete it by going to the sub menu and then pushing delete. Problem is now it keeps reading that the disc is unformatted and i can't access the other movies that i have on the disc? Got any suggestions? Thanks

This has happened because somehow the program didn't "Close the Session" and make it so data could be added, instead it has "Locked" the disk to prevent any more data being overwritten and ostensibly corrupting the disk.. In this case however it has also locked out everything... and returned it to the "Unformatted" state. Although I suspect you will NOT actually be able to record anything to this disk in actual fact. You MAY be abale to use a program called Unstopable Copier, if ya lucky :Download HERE www.majorgeeks.com/download2623.html

My Panasonic E55 is having problems reading disks after I try to erase something on them. I erase without success and then it tells me the disk is unformatted. Also will not format disk after that. I...


Sorry this isn't a solution, but I just want to commiserate with you. I am having the same problem. I guess the problem started about three weeks ago. The recorder will not recognize any blank DVD-R discs and it only recognized 1 out of 4 new DVD-RAM discs. It would read most of my older DVD-RAM discs but would refuse to erase some of the old recorded programming. It also refused to recognize some of the older DVD-RAM discs, so in frustration I reformatted one. I was able to record and watch a couple of shows, but now it is saying "Unformat" for that disc.
About a year ago, the DVR gave ma some trouble and I was able to fix it myself. (I think it suddenly wouldn't power on, but I don't really remember if it was that or if it was a "SELFCHECK" error.) I had to open up the case and replace two capacitors. I bought the replacements at Radio Shack and my son helped me solder them on. My next step with this DVR will be to open up the case and look for any obvious problems. The worn-out capacitors looked oily and damaged, as I recall.

Formats maxell discs,not sonys, then records less than2 mins.and reads dirty disc.. disc style cleaners,unplugging unit for days does nothing to help.store bought movies play perfect.


What you can do is open the Player. You will see a DVD drive in there (same type used in Computers) You can replace it with another IDE DVD writer. This solved many of my client's problems.
I always keep a few IDE DVD roms, and writers handy in my shop. It is the simplest, and cheapest fix.
Hope it helps.

Samsung HT-Z410: ''Disc Error''


It's not the lens. It's the bottom plate on the disk pickup. Dust gets on the rubber pieces (there are three oval shaped pads) that do not adhere properly to the disk which causes the disk to turn too slowly for the lens to read it properly. Clean those off with alcohol swabs and let dry. Also blow off all the dust in the unit since it will already be open. I have also decided to leave a disk in the player so that dust will not have a chance to get on those bumpers again. I did this last weekend and have not had problems since.

My wii fit disk wont work


If Wii gives Disc Read Error, first step you need to check is to try another disc or clean the exisitng disc. This will confirm that problem is with either Wii or Disc. If the console itself is giving disc read error then it needs to be repaired. You may check out DIY Wii Fix Guide, that will show step by step information to fix the problem yourself.

Ps2 slim problems reading disc


After countless hours of tying to figure this out I went to the basics. This ps2 slim has 3 sensors and after all sensors are the key to making the machine work properly. After testing everything known to man I decided to go around the sensors by taping them all down. Low and behold when I cranked the ps2 slim up the disc now reads and plays perfectly.

Dvd video player


Your DVD player is having a problem reading the disc. This is what is accounting for the pausing and the slow loading times...especially if it plays other movies without hitches. Even if the DVD is cleaned, some scratching on the disc will prevent it from being viewed properly. Blockbuster shoudl give you another disc to try of the same movie if you ask. Also, you can try getting a cleaner for your DVD player to remove dust and help it read discs better.
