Question about Samsung DVD-R130 DVD Recorder

2 Answers

Will not read blank media so that I can record.

I have a Samsung DVD recorder r130 and it will not recognize blank Media. I've tried a couple of different brands but it continually tries to read the blank disk and will not stop so that I can record on it. The "reading" icon stays on my screen for a few minutes then eventually stops and ejects the disc. I've done a factory reset and also cleaned the lens. The recorder has no problem playing DVD's but I'm unable to record onto a blank disc. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Ok, Firstly it sounds like you have reasonable knowledge on what you're doing.
But just to clarify a few things.
1.You say you have tried a couple of different brands of disc.Unless they are of good quality
or compatible with your machine they may not work properly.Try TDK or Verbatim for example.
Also make sure they are DVD-R or DVD-RW.
2.If no blank discs are successful,then you may need to clean the laser lens thoroughly.
I know you said you cleaned the lens,but was this with a lens cleaner disc?
If so it will only remove dust not built up grime from other sources such as smoke from cigarettes.
This would entail taking the cover off the unit and cleaning the laser lens directly with a
cotton bud dipped in cleaning fluid.If you are not confident in doing this,then you
would need to get someone qualified to do so!
I have gotten many DVD Players and DVD Recorders working again doing this.

Can anybody help me, I purchased a Samsung dvd recorder model dvdvr350m, since purchasing the unit it will not recognize that it has recordable dvd's in it (dvd-rw),it tells me no disc inserted please...


Did the sales guy use the same DVD-RW that you did? Maybe the brand you are using is not of good quality and can not be recognized by the recorder. If he did not use the same disc did you notice if he used DVD-RW or DVD+RW? Some DVD-Recorders only recognize one or the other but this is kind of rare these days. I recommend verbatim brand discs. They should be available for sale at any shop. If you want the ultimate in quality DVDs then go with Taiyo Yuden. This Japanese brand invented recordable media and in addition to that they are obsessed with quality. www.supermediastore.com is always where I get my discs.

Thanks for reading!

I had the same problem and after reading and trying allot of disks I found the following to work.

Used Maxell - RW disk. Did a complete format on my computer (takes a while). Burned a DVD using Vista DVD burner with only a Jpg as per one of the other posts. Once the disk plays. Stop and goto disk management and format using DVD-V (VR did not work).

I know its not pretty but at least its better than throwing it in the garbage bin.
