Re: unknown disc, please, check disc again

I'm afraid it looks like this machine will only record on DVD-R disks not DVD R. See page 9 of the manual (link below to download): Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!

My 2 1/2 year old LG dvd/vcr recorder will play some dvds but will not play others. It says unknown disc. I was told to try a lens cleaner; I bought one and the lens cleaner says unknown disc as well. ...


Your DVD /VCR says unknown disc because the
dvd which you have inserted is not of the supported format by player.

If you insert unsupported formats only it will say as unknown disc.This is not related with disc cleaners.

Please insert the supported formats and it will play the disc.

Trying to record on dvd, using dvd-r dut says unknown disc what to do?


This is a comon one, RW Disks do all look similkar but, they do have diferent letters at the end of the name and if you have not bought the correct coded disk, your RW wil not recognize is. Sugest you read your manual and check what exact disks you need and check the pack you have bought.

I have a Zenith XBR413 dvd/vcr recorder. Just bought some Memorex DVD+RW blank discs to do some recording. When I put the disc in the recorder it says "Unknown disc - check disc again" and pops the disc...

You may need dvd- disks instead! ( it usually one or the other!) and if your player does take a DVD+ you might have to change brands of disks ( I know this sounds stupid but all disks are not created equal! and do not work in all players!
