Initializing discs I put in a blank disc and it asks me to initialize or not. After a minute or two it seems like it is trying to initialize then comes back unknown disc. It will play discs but not record any more and I tried several different kinds. Ughhhh.

If you are using the same OS and have made no changes to software, it sounds like the drive may be faulty.
Try a disk cleaning kit and re-install the software for the program you are using.
Example, Try NERO or some other program after cleaning the drive.
Do a un-install of whatever program you may be using and re-install it.
If you can rely on the software, then the drive is probably at fault and should be replaced.
Look in systems information, under hardware configuration and look for problem devices.
Hope the helps.
Try it, it may work !!

The dvd wont initialize blanc discs so that i can record with it.i have used different disc as well


Do you mean it won't format/initialize the disc? Alternative possible problem, when you put in a disc, does it not recognize that a blank disc is in the unit? Only DVD-RAM discs need formatting. DVD-RW discs need to be initialized. DVD-R disc do not need either formatting or initializing. (This unit does not write to DVD+R or DVD+RW discs.)

In the case of DVD-RW discs that can't be initialized. Check if this has already been done (or if you need to unfinalize the disc).

If the new disc is not being recognized as a blank disc, the recorder may not be recognizing the disc (dirt, scratches or manufacturing issue) or the recorder is not focusing on the disc properly. In the first case, clean the disc or try a different type of disc (Samsung claims that their discs will be most compatible). In the second case, the unit may need service.

I hope this helps.

My Boss br-8 keeps saying medium error. It's not reading any disc. It ask me to initialize disc that already have music on them.


If the disk had music that was not CREATED on the BR-8 you will get the error. The format is incompatible with computer formats.

If the files were created on the same BR-8, then you probably have a disk drive failure.

Try initializing a blank disk. If it will not, then you have a drive failure.

Also is it possible you are trying to read a 250Mb disk on a 100Mb drive? That won't work either.

I have a Samsung DVD recorder is not initializing to format


Had the same problim myself with a pioneer hard drive recorder, when i put some ingersol blank discs, and the machine kept spewing them out, eventually solved the problim when the guy lent me a few different makes of disc, ironically the best and most compatable were the cheapest ones in the shop, RITEK, which were bought at a muti chain computer shop,ask if he can sell you a few different makes, these are very cheap and are normally sold in baulk
Hope this helps

Disc won't initialize or record, keeps saying no disc or opc erro


I suggest you try cleaning the lens...

If the wrong disc was inserted, say a music disc, there would surely be a message to that effect. If no such message is displayed I would guess the unit is faulty.

Looong initializing phase followed by "disc error"


Hi...

How long have you had the CDR631?

I would suggest a good cleaning of the laser lens assembly. NOT
some cheapy cleaner disc either.

If youre not comfy with messing with small electronics let a tech do it.
Marantz is worth it.

Initializing DVD-RW Discs


This camcorder only takes DVD-R and DVD-RW, it will not work with the +R discs. I've used Maxell and Fujifilm discs and they both worked fine. You have to make sure the camcorder is plugged in the wall when initializing or else it won't initialize.

Sony compact disc player initializing


Have you tried pressing hte RESET switch?? It's behind the removeable front of the stereo, use a biro or something and hold it in for a bit.

Failing that, check that there isn't a CD already in it, could be a dodgy CD?

Initializing disc


Yes - you're trying to initialise a +R DL.

Two problems
1. The DC210 only takes - format DVDs

2. You only need to initialise DVD-RW discs (see page 57 of the manual)

By initialising the DVD+R you have written to it once. having done that, you cannot write anything else to that disc. I find it easier to use DVD-RWs so that I can re-use them.

Good Luck.
