Question about Televison & Video

Samsung dvd r128 won't recognise blank DVD-R or DVD-RW, it spins them for a few minutes then tells me to check the disc. It plays DVD prerecorded films OK. Have cleaned the lens and the sled rails, is the machine worth doing anything more to? Thanks Brian

Brian, Sorry to hear about your DVD problems.
If you have tried Boot up CD's and DVD's, like Restoration DVD's and they are being recognized by the unit but Blank DVD's are not, try changing the quality of the DVD's.
Example. I purchased a 3-Pack of cheap DVD's from Walgreens, N/G
Walmat, Sony Double layer ( Grate )
Hope this has helped you.

It won't recognise a blank dvd.......its says "The disc cannot be played....please check the disc" I HAVE A DVD VR 357


check the disc in your PC if this finds it as a blank dvd then possible play head error.

Use a DVD+/-RW and use Imageburn to full erase then try this one in the recorder this may work if not a possible motor failure on the spindle

Samsung DVD recorder will play but not record blank discs


Had mine into the repair shop. Junk it, processor is toast. Not worth the money to fix. The guy said he wouldn't even touch it.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, try to clean the lens using a CD disc cleaner. Additionally, verify that your blanks are either DVD-R or DVD-RW.

Samsung R155 Recording from VHS Issues


The reason why you are having this problem is because you haven't finalized the disc. In able for you to play that Burned DVD that you have you need to Finalized the disc. Finalizing a recordable optical disc means writing the disc's lead-in (the Table of Contents or TOC) and lead-out information (blank data that fills up the unused space at the end of the disc) so that a DVD player will know where the various tracks begin and end. Without the TOC, a conventional DVD player will not be able to read the contents of the disc. Once the disc is finalized, no more information can be written to it. Finalizing takes about two or three minutes. To finalize a DVD-RW/DVD-R: 1. Press the Menu button with the disc stopped. 2. Select Disc Manager and press Enter or the right arrow. 3. Select Disc Finalize and press Enter or the right arrow. You will be asked twice if you are sure that you want to finalize the disc. Select Yes and press Enter. Once the disc is finalized, you cannot delete entries from the record list. After being finalized, the DVD-R/DVD-RW (video mode) operates in the same manner as a DVD-Video. Recorded discs must be finalized in order to play back in non-Samsung DVD players. A DVD-RW disc that has been recorded by DAO (disk-at-once mode) in a PC cannot be unfinalized. A DVD-RW disc that has been recorded in Video Mode on a non-Samsung recorder cannot be unfinalized by a Samsung recorder. A DVD-R disc cannot be unfinalized. Note: Finalization does not apply to DVD-RAM. If you cannot finalize a DVD-R or DVD-RW disc, make sure that Disc Protection is turned off. If you are still having difficulty, you may try calling technical support of SAMSUNG. Note: Do not turn the recorder off while it is finalizing the disc. Data on the disc will be damaged if the finalization process is interrupted.
