Question about Samsung DVD-R130 DVD Recorder

1 Answer


I've been using computer burnt dvd-rw's since I bought the machine in Jan. without a problem. Recently when I put in a disc I get an error message that says it can't read the disc. If I unplug the unit for a couple hours it plays them with no problem. Any suggestions. Also, how do you know when Pro Scan is on or off? There's no light indicator to tell you

If you are trying to play music, then there could be only two problems.
1. Some DVD-RW can unintentionally trick you into thinking that they can play music, if inserted into the right machine. But really what it might really mean is that it can transport music, not play it.
2. The format of the file that you burned onto the disc may not be compatible with the type of DVD-RW that you have.

If you are trying to put an actually DVD/Movie onto the disc, then it is more than likely a format problem. I imagine that it may be really hard to get a video into the correct format so that it can be played on a DVD-RW.
I assume that whatever you are putting onto the DVD-RW is completely original. If it is not (such as a movie you got offline) then copyright laws will take all happiness out of your life.

Just bought an ONN dvd player and will not play burnt dvds. It says it will play DVD-R/RW. Any ideas to why it won't?

Burn your dvds in a proper way. If you burn your dvds as data dvd, it may not work on certain dvd players. Try different software or different PC to burn your dvds. Check the region code of your dvd player & the dvds burnt. They should match. You may find some region-free players.

I can't get my cd's I recorded on my sony dvd player

Check file extensions of files on your recorded cd's. Add file extension to Roxio, Windows Media player and check your drive settings.

DVD disk

check to see what format your computer burns on.[ex:dvd-r, dvd-rw,dvd-+r,dvd-+rw]different dvd players play certain dvd formats.the format for burning on your computer is probably different from the dvd players that aren't playing the also must finalize the burned disc.
good luck

DVD+-RW plays DVD video without sound

if you did not install the wires to the motherboard ( a small set of wires- I think it's 4-pin) it will not play the sound- ( that's if it requires that wire)
you can also uninstall it in device manager, restart and let windows re-install it again because software may have overwritten some important files-

finally the software that plays the dvd may be buggy in that it mutes the sound- check the toggle (it may be on mute on the screen) I always uninstall it and use interactual dvd player that comes with universal dvd's ( like the Bourne moveis next to me right now)

for stand alone software- I prefer Nero as Roxio overwrites everything- Nero is friendly- playing dvd's , burning etc...

Hope it works for you

Cannot play this disc

The DVD-R130 can only record to DVD-R and DVD-RW disks - it cannot identify blank DVD+R and DVD+RW disks. For recorded DVD disks, the player will play finalised DVD+R/+RW disks without any problem.
