Re: playing disc

Any disc recorded on the liteon must be "FINALISED" before it will play on other machines.use "disctools" in the liteon menu to tdo this.

Hi I am trying to copy a video to dvd on this recorder What dvd disc do i use as after recording says this disc cannot play- would appreciate the exact direction how to do this Tks

The DVD-burner inside the DVDR520H is a very cheap LiteOn-burner (model: DDW451S). It would be better to replace the burner, but it would be difficult to find a product which will fit in the limited space. I'm having troubles with burning DVD's since I had bought this peace of ****. The machine have been repaired three times, but it is still not functioning properly. Shame on Philips for assembling such a weak product and their very bad support!

My disc records fine, plays great on the Magnavox, but no other player can read the disc?

You must finalize a disc before it can play on other machines. Please refer to your documentation for how to finalize a disc.

Liteon DVD recorder LVW-5045 has disc inside and won't open tray

Use your knuckles to knock on top of cabinet just above disc tray door while at the same time pressing open button,99% of the time disc tray will open.The problem you have is caused by a worn out belt drive or the tray is out of alignment.The disc tray belts only cost $2,when tray is open you can see the minature belt that controls door to the right.Use twizzers to remove and replace.Belt size 1.9

Recorded DVD will not play in another player

Maybe the format of your recorded movie didnt support your player..check out your manual for the supported formats and check the format of your recorded movie.If any of the format in the manual matches your movie format then it will definitely play..
please rate my suggestion..

I have successfully made hundreds of play-able DVDs from my home video using this Liteon LVC9016G. Overall I like this machine although it is very quirky.

First, I can tell you the only DVD that can work is SONY DVD+R 120min / 4.7GB. NOTHING ELSE WILL WORK RIGHT. I have used some DVD-R: You can record on it since everything appears to work. The got-ya is you cannot play it at all. I am sick of this because I have re-used some tape but ended up with useless DVDs! Take my word for it, I have tried many media like Maxwell or Verbatin. These "other brands" are fine on the computer but not on this machine. I don't know what this machine can detect and see the differences in the media.

The good thing is that I was able to connect the DV port from my camcorder (Sony mini DV) to the dv port on this unit. Cable was not included so I bought one very cheap from eBay. This connection gives the best control as the LiteOn remote control can control the recording from camcorder to the DVD recorder and even make different menu items. This is not a published feature but I figured out. As I said I have made hundreds of home video on this unit and it is very nice (when it works.)

Unreadable disk error

The laser in 5101 could be defective or maybe just dirty.Try cleaning with a commercial cleaning disc,put a drop of rubbing alcohol on cleaning brushes.When this happens sometimes it will still be a usable disc but not always.Try putting in another dvd player or recorder or your PC if it plays dvds,the readers in PC are of a better quality and will often read discs that those cheap dvd readers can't.
R+ or R- discs need to finalized after recording RW+and RW- discs do not.It is always a good policy to finalze the second your recording is finished otherwise it may not play in other players or recorders.
When you make a recording in a dvd recorder an it doensn't recognize the disc it just recorded it quite often has a defective laser.This particular model has been plagued with early laser failure.
