Question about Emerson EWD2202 DVD Player/VCR

1 Answer

DVD Player I am trying to play a DVD that was made at my nephew's wedding. When I put the disc in and it says loading, it then says "disc error". Now cable company says some home made DVD's are not compatible with certain DVD players. Does anyone have any ideas what I can do. Someone said I need an MP3 adapter yet this Emerson has MP3. Any help would be appreciated.

    I am having the same problem when I try to play my CD-R's that have pictures burned on them. I have just learned that the manual states that this DVD Player / VCR combo will only play DVD Videos. The outside of the box lists all the dfferent CD's, DVD's, MP3's etc as playable. Is there some kind of adapator or something that we can purchase to attach to the combo so we will be able to see our CD'-Rs and the DVD's?

Try re-recording the dvd to the other dvd format. ie if it's on a DVD-R record it to a DVD+R also here is the number to Funai, they make Emerson, they may know more 1-800-256-2487. Hope this helps.

I record a wedding wedding with my Sony HDR-VR 1000 in HD (1090x ...) I make used of Video Studio Pro-x 2 to do the editing but when i play the DVD on the DVD player it does'nt run smoothly . spec

Try using a different format video type to put on the DVD. Sometimes the video format can effect it. The format of the DVD can be effected also by the encoding settings of the video. Sometimes it can't read the video correctly due to insufficient memory on the computer. Sometimes caused by background programs running. Or the memory settings being too low. There is nothing you can do about the disc you burned, so you will have to do another.

There is definitely a solution for this but you must use a computer to recover the information on that disc. It also depends on the software you are using to recover such information from the disc. My recommendation would be that you start by simply inserting your disc in the DVD Rom on the computer see what happens when you open My Computer on the Desktop then you click on the DVD rom icon to see if the DVD opens. If it opens it means the information on the disc can be read. so you click again on the folder that appears. If you have a media player installed then that media player will play back those video files. These files can then be transferred to the computer then authored by a computer software like Nero. There are many other programs that can do this job. Also such software can open sometimes such a disc if and when the windows operating system's My computer fails to open it.

Disc shows loading then error on all dvd disc

Put a cd in the dvd player if it is marked that it plays cds... if it plays the cd your dvd laser is shot... cheaper to get a new unit. if it doesn't play a cd try cleaning the laser. and last but not the last thing try unplugging it for a short time then plug it back in... if nothing works get the one tool that fixs most everything...... take it to office depot and they can recycle the stuff inside and help keep the earth green...then onto wally world.

Solutions to incorrect disk error c105 & c104

Hello gjbrokke,

First make sure the disc is compatible with the dvd player (CD-R+ , or CD-R - )

Second make sure the region code of the dvd you burned is compatible with the dvd region settings on your dvd player.

One of those two are preventing the disc from playing in your sansui player.

Get a lens cleaning kit. Most likely some dust got on to the laser lens.

A non compatible CD or DVD disk cannot damage a CD player. There is no actual physical contact between the disk surface and the laser unit.

By coincidence, the player may have failed.

Samsung 3650 dvd/vcr player loading problem

Sorry, no suggestion other than don't buy Samsung. That's my conclusion after owning the same model. It worked fine for a while, but now won't load any DVD... usually. Sometimes it will play one, but more often it won't. Mine tries to load ("Loading") for a long time, I hear the DVD spinning, then ultimately the screen displays "This disc cannot be played" or something to that effect.

Dvd "unknown disc" message coming up

Have you tryed to use a lens cleaning disc yet. The laser lens on these players and recorders alike, must have the lens cleaned every oince in awhile. If that does not help, most likly you have a bad laser pickup assembly and you will need to replace the plaer as to have that repaiered, you could buy a new unit. Good Luck
