Probably because your PC can't read DVD -R or DVD +R disc, only DVD.

I have a pioneer recorder and i'm trying to turn vhs to dvd... it shows that it's burning and even looks like it on the dvd itself but it won't play anything. do i have it set up right?


You likely won't be able to simply plug the VCR into the DVD recorder and record the tape onto the DVD.DVD recorders require a digital input which was never put onto a VCR due to technology changes and availability when VCR's were made.You absolutely need some kind of software program to send it to your computer,then to a disc.The key is digital input.It simply isn't in a VCR.You cannot even record TV on a DVD recorder unless you have a cable box input or a DVD recorder with a digital tuner to change channels and record from.Unless it is something like home video,you are better off starting all over.If it is something like home video which you want to convert,there may be some certain companies which do it for $ obviously,but I haven't checked for any myself personally so I am not sure about that option.But I have found software at retail stores for perhaps up to $50 which will do that. Good luck,Greg

Recorded dvd's won't play on other dvd players Toshiba d-r410


You can play these recordings without finalizing them in the D-R410, but if you want them to play
in other DVD players, they need to be finalized. See pages 28 to 32 in manual. If you want to
finalize the disks you've already made, follow the directions on page 32.

Dvd recorder can't read disc it previously read


Take the Disc out and put it aside. You must clean the Laser Eye, and clean dust and other matter from inside your recorder. Clean Eye with rubbibg alcohol and q-tip. A regular CD/DVD cleaner disc will not work. After cleaning, reinsert your Disc and Finalize it.

What format are you recording in?If the recorder is set for DVD +R, and your playback machine won't read the disc, you may need to record on a DVD-R, or a DVD +-R. Or vice-versa. Some DVDRW discs will record on one machine and won't play on another. The media are incompatible. Another problem - if you are copying a copy-protected disc, it might not play back either. Are you sure you are finalizing the disc? This process takes 4-5 minutes and requires two or three responses sometime.

Why won't the DVD play on my computer? Help, please?


Put it back in the recorder you made it with and make sure it is finalized. Also make sure your DVD drive in your computer is compatable with that format.
