Re: problem with playing DVD-R discs

The problem is that the mp3 format compresses the files to make them very small. The advance function on the dvd player was set up to advance, let's say, 1/2 second at a time. Well, the dvd or cd file will advance a 1/2 second, but an mp3 format file, which is way smaller, will advance the same distance on the disc which ends up being 10 seconds or so. I had the same problem with my panasonic. Solution would be to burn the files onto the disc in a cd format. You won't be able to put 100+ songs on the disc like you could with an mp3 format, but you will be able to controll the advancing a lot easier.

1) Make sure the discs you are using fit the correct format specified by your Unit . For example - if you are using DVD-R's that you have burned yourself and the unit does not support this format you will get this error.

2) Dirty laser lense causing the unit to have problems in reading the disk. Use a cleaning Disk like this one to see if the error resolves.

If the error remains and you feel confident to do so you can open the unit and look for the glass laser lense - usually blue in color under the DVD clamp. Use a cotton swab and some isopropyl alcohol to gently wipe the lens in order to clean it.

Allow to dry naturally for a couple of minutes before re-assembling the cover on the unit.

3) Try a CD in the unit - if the unit reads CDs and not DVDs - this is an indicator of a faulty or misaligned drive mechaninsm within the unit itself. In this case the drive unit will require service attention and need to be replaced.

Obviously you should check that any disks you are using are clean and free from scratches.

Hope this helps. Please do rate my answer. Many Thanks.

AVIC-N1 wont read navigation disc

If your error message is reading "insert appropriate disk" or "inappropriate disk inserted" than I have the solution. Can you just let me know exactly what the message is?

Panasonic cq-dvr909u

according to the manual it does not support cd-r, lemme copy this section right out of the book

The following discs cannot be played back on this product.
DVD-ROM - DVD-R/DVD-RAM - CD-ROM - VSD - CDV - CD-G - SACD - photo CD - CD-R* - some DTS CD discs - CD-EXTRA (audio-only playback possible) - DVDs with a region number other than "1" or "ALL" - discs recorded in PAL format, others.

(* Because this product has its own reading device, CD-R discs can not be played back.)

If i remember correctly somethin about a dual laser in it or somethin, I feel your pain wish it could but it does come with rca aux input that you can do headphone -> rca jack so you can hookup a mp3 player or laptop or whatever
