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

Shows unkown disc when i put in a burned dvd-r but it will play a store boughten disc what disc format is compadible with yhis unit

This model DVD player can play the following disc formats:

DVD-Video (Region 1 or relevant region coded store-bought movies)

DVD-R (must be finalised on appropriate recording equipment for compatible playback)

CD-R (for jpeg/mp3 media files)

CD-RW (for audio such as mp3)

music CD (such as store-bought albums)

This player will NOT accept DVD-RW/+RW discs, or Blu-Ray.

I hope this helps you a tiny bit.

Trying to write to blank disk first time (Memorex CD-RW). Get message: Record failed: wrong format for re-write Spectroniq SDR-205 DVD Recorder

Some DVD recorders cannot write CD-RW - only DVD-RW (+ and -) as well as DVD-R (+ and -) (this depends on the brand/model). This unit probably does not support CD recording. Try using DVD-RW instead for this machine - see if it records that (do not finalise even if unit prompts you to with an on-screen message prior to ejecting disc).

There are DVD players and recorders which can play CD-RW (mp3, jpegs etc.) but I don't know of any which record this format (a PC CD/DVD-ROM drive can do this though).

I recently purchased a Dynex DVD Player, Model # DX-DVD2, but I can't find my user guide. I want to burn a video from my computer onto a DVD so I can play it in my DVD Player, but I am not sure what type...

This is listed in the player's Product Features:

Playable formats
Include DVD, DVD+R, DVD-R, DVD+RW, DVD-RW, CD, CD-R and CD-RW formats for a variety of choices.

Does this player play dvd rw on it

Hi there,

Sorry but without knowing the particular model number of your Sylvania machine I can't give you a definative answer as I can't check it's specifications. A quick look down a list general Sylvania dvd players shows that most of them are listed as being able to. The format that Sylvania players lists are dvd - r/rw there is no mention of them using the + format.

Hope this helps,

I recently have not been able to record on DVD+RW discs. An error message keeps coming up saying it cannot record on this disc.The dumb part about it is I still have a couple of discs of the same nature...

According to the user's manual, for DVD+RW or DVD-RW discs, it may take some time for the disc to be recognized and then it has to format the disc prior to using it. This should be an automatic process when the disc is inserted (looking at page 17 of the owner's manual). If this is not happening, you may need to clean the DVD with a DVD cleaner (a DVD disc with tiny brushes that wipe the lense on the unit while the disc spins). You could first try using a can of compressed air and blowing any dust/dirt out of the DVD slot (with the tray open).

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.

When I put in a blank DVD, it says it ''cannot play this disc.'' Doesn't matter if it is DVD-RW or DVD+RW.

This machine is not capable of recording DVDs of any kind, but it is capable of reading DVD+/-RW and DVD+/-R.

DVD reports: No disk when I try to play a DVD-R record by me

Dvd-R and +RW are two different formats. Check to see if your player should play -R disc.

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.
