Question about Sony RDR-GX315 DVD Recorder

1 Answer

I 'Finalized' the DVD but cannot play on another player

I just borrowed the recorder from a friend. He uses the same machine to play the recorded DVDs so he did not experience this problem. I finalized the DVD but cannot play on any DVD player, NOT even on the Computer Notebook DVD. I need the recorded DVDs to play on at least one of my players - I have panasonic, sony, Apex and one on my HP Notebook. Any tips?

Does the machine record on to + or - DVDR?
If it does both try each type. Also try high quality discs, some of the cheaper types won't work. Try it on different speeds too.

Can not play recorded dvds or record them


Dear Kjwj,


Maybe the player laser lens is dusty. You can try cleaning it with a CD/DVD lenses cleaner disc, like the one shown in the link below:

http://www.amazon.com/Memorex-32020029479-DVD-Lens-Cleaning/dp/B00008EM7U

I cannot provide info regarding the service mode codes because no information regarding the DVD player (brand and model) was provided.

Hope you may find this information useful!

Best regards,

Miguel Luiz Martins

What kind of blank dvds can i use


DVD-R and DVD+R should play once recorded and finalized. RW of any kind is iffy and must be tested to see if they will work.
I don't think any dual layer DVDs will work, but I could be wrong. If you're taking about recording DVDs on this, it's not a DVD recorder as far as I know.

Won't play on any other dvd


You have to use your friend's DVD recorder to finalize the disc. Once the DVD is finalized, it will play in other DVD players.
On your friend's DVD recorder, pop the disc in, and use his remote to go to Setup --> Disc Edit --> Finalize --> OK
Voila!

Samsung DVD-V$357 recorded dvds won't play on other machines


Did you finalize the disk? If not, this should solve your problem. When the disk is finalized you should be able to play it on your computer if you can play other DVDs on it. Some other DVD players can only play specific disks (i.e. DVD-R, DVD+R). This may be another problem.

Playing recorded DVDs on PC or other DVD player


Recordings from your DVD recorder should play on other DVD players as long as you finalize the recording on your recorder.

A PC should recognise an un-finalized, but only in a DVD writer drive.

There is a firmware upgrade available for this model. Follow this link and select your particular country version DVDR3320/XX
