Question about Sony DVP-CX995V Multi-disc DVD Player

Labeling DVD by using the load function

I loaded 140 DVD's into the unit and typed most of the titles into the edit fuction for each DVD. I had a power failure for over 10 hrs and I losted all my input. Does the unit have a internal power source for this protection.

Re: Labeling DVD by using the load function

No it doesn't. If you lose power for more than a few minutes, you'll lose everything. It does, however, have an external keyboard capability, which will cut down your input time from a few weeks to a few days. I'm being sarcastic, but I'm very disappointed in this product. In addition to the archaic way it reads and enters disc information, it won't play several DVDs. We get 'unabel to read disc' errors on many movies (new out of the box), and on many more, the unit will actually power off by itself when it tries to read the disc. This is an inferior product that should have never been released. Your best bet is to document a problem and return it for a refund if possible. Our warranty is out, and the best we could get from Sony was a replacement offer for an identical refurbished unit for $273...I don't think so. Run away from this product as fast as you can.

I got a new machine, when I transfer from VHS to DVD-R it records, but will only play on the machine I recorded on, it doesn't load on other DVD players, why is that?

You need to FINALIZE the DVD-R you recorded in that unit for it to be playable on other DVD players. This function should be part of the on-screen menu for your unit. (in Panasonic DVD recorders, it's under DVD MANAGEMENT in the FUNCTIONS menu).

If the disc you recorded is already loaded, but stopped, press SETUP on your remote - an on screen menu should appear.

Using the UP/DOWN arrow keys, select DVD MENU and press ENTER. Use the UP/DOWN arrow keys again to select FINALIZE and press ENTER.

A message box will popup 'Finalize disc?' use the UP/DOWN arrow keys to select YES then press ENTER. Finalizing should start and may take a while to complete.

Once complete, the disc is now playable on other DVD players. (from page 32 of the owners manual with the heading 'PLAYING THE DISCS IN OTHER DVD PLAYERS')

How to get unit to play without remote

You can probably use the front panel buttons (STOP PLAY OPEN/CLOSE etc) manually, the only thing you cannot do without the remote is access certain DVD menus, including subtitles/language/special features etc. You can always obtain and use a universal remote for basic menu functions later on if necessary.

To play a DVD movie without the remote, simply load your preferred disc, wait for the player to finish reading its contents, then to skip copyright warnings and/or the 'play movie' menu screen, press STOP, then PLAY, or simply press PLAY button where 'play movie' (or whatever function) is highlighted in the menu. These buttons should be on the front of the main unit. Doing this should encourage the player to detect the appropriate title (the movie) and play it (basic playback operation may not be possible with some DVD releases due to the numerous interactive menus and title pages, such as film trailers).

If basic manual operation is not completely possible with some DVD titles, consider a universal remote for your player if you have either lost your original, or the player was purchased/received without one. Such remotes are relatively inexpensive to purchase, and are available just about everywhere.

You can't add a title to a disc from a player (such as this). You can only add a title on a disc writer before finishing the disc. (The only exception is RW (rewritable) disc which can be unfinished.) If a title (disc, chapter or track) is on the disc you can display it. Press Title on the remote. If you want to read all of the information on any disc, insert the disc and press Load on the player (when in Stop mode) or press the TV/DiscExplorer/DVD button to set the unit in Disc Explorer mode. It takes about 30 seconds to load the data. Press Stop to cancel the data search. Then use the folder buttons (ALL,DVD,CD,A,B,C,D) on the remote or the player to read the various items. Press Return to leave the folders. If you enter the Disc Explorer while playing a disc, the playback will stop and you will have to press Play to restart (Resume is not an available option).

Once loaded the player will store the data even after you remove the disc. It will clear when a new disc is inserted or you press Load.

The manual for this unit is available at: .

I hope this helps.

Mdp-1020 won't read any disk

When you start the portable dvd empty, does it 'load' the firmware first. Then you put the dvd in. It also needs to load the title etc. into the portable. If it does not read use TDK lens cleaner. If it wroks, fine. Otherwise rinse off the dvd with hot water, then blot dry defore trying in your portable again.

Recording problem

I have had two of these recorders, Using only Sony + discs or rewriteables is my solution, I will not use any thing else. It may work 1-3 times on others brands then start throwing coasters.
As to renaming, on my model I pull up the tiltle menu then select Try using rewriteables for the other problem as well My model is a little older and lets me take disc out without finalizing then when inserting select title, hit edit on remote and select rename. Maybe if you can skip the finalizing (as with rewritables it will help

How to finalize

i have spent 2 months looking for this answer myself... and at last success! i downloaded the user manual from funai(they made this model) available here: on page 38 it instructs you to press setup on your remote, from the drop down menu you need to select disc edit and then select finalize. this aggravated me at first because nothing happens when i hit the setup button, i powered off the unit and hit setup before the disc loaded. this step is not mentioned but is necesary. you cannot finalize a disc after it has loaded to the title menu.
