    MODEL DVD-vr 357 Samsung.



    When I first got I used DVD RW with no problem but now it is only working with CD.



    If using CD is more or less the same then I have no more problems. Could it be that the DVD I am using have detriorated. They are new?

Is this a combo drive? can you post me the brand and model.

if this is a combo drive, it can read and burn CD's and also READ DVD*S but it can't burn DVD*S since its a combination drive, cd burner with dvd reading, no dvd burning.

    I see this is a DVD Recorder and VCR Combo instead of computer drive.

    Try a DVD lens cleaner, also are you still on the warranty or outside warranty?

    since your out of warranty you could open up the dvd drive to clean the lens yourself with a qtip and alcohol.

    As shown on this video:

    .
    The video itself is actually for another device, but it doesn't matter since the cleaning is simple and done like that on all cd/dvd lenses.

    If the dvd lens cleaner doesn't fix the problem try the above method.

    if the problem is still unsolved after cleaning the lens properly at least 2 times. Try another DVD disc. If the problem happens with all discs, then the optics in the drive have a problem and the drive is unable to read the disc. There should be two small screws in the bottom of the lens that you could adjust a little, tighten.

    If the problem is still not solved, I would either replace the drive since they don't cost much, a computer DVD burner drive goes around 20usd.

I have dubbed vcr tape to a Sony DVD-RW disc and tried playing it back through a toshiba player and it keeps coming up Bad Disk. My PC won't even recognise it. When started dubbing the screen displayed 1hr...


Did you say you used a DVD-RW disc to transfer a videotape onto? The reason your PC won't recognise that disc is because the data format on it is a different language to what PCs understand - plus an unfinalised DVD-RW won't play in other DVD players - it is usually an incompatible format.

(DVD+RW discs with titles/top menus created in video mode CAN be played on a PC DVD drive or a normal DVD player as can finalised DVD-R discs (DVD-R discs MUST be recorded and finalised in the same recorder for compatible playback). DVD-RW discs can only be viewed on the unit they were written/recorded on.

The other reason for the 'remaining space' on the disc you describe showing less than 120 minutes is due to a title recently being recorded or erased - unless you format it - the 120 minute / 4.7GB DVD-RW will not show full available space. Erasing titles on re-writable DVDs does not increase space. The same rule applies to unfinalised +R / -R discs (you cannot re-format these to get the space back once recorded - they are 'once only' writables)

I recommend you invest in some DVD-R discs and re-copy your VHS tape to that - then if you are satisfied with the result, title etc., finalise the DVD-R - it will play on any DVD player or PC with DVD support (or it should). These discs are relatively inexpensive to buy just about anywhere.

Final note: do NOT finalise the DVD-RW you recorded (I hope you haven't already done this) - simply format/erase it - re-use it for something else or keep it until you need it.

You can use any brand of DVD, just take note of the format before recording/playing.

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 vr-357; recorded DVD only plays on the player


You have to "Finalize" the disc before it will play on other units. Go to Disc Menu, Second choice listed(not in front of it right now) Selections to right will offer disc Finalize. Say YES.

Hey,
Maybe the format of your recorded movie didnt support your player..check out your manual for the supported formats and check the format of your recorded movie.If any of the format in the manual matches your movie format then it will definitely play..

I recorded a dvd and it will not play in any other player.


You must finalize the DVD after recording it. If you post the model of the JVC device, I may be able to find out how to do this for you.

I used my pd-dvr100 to record a copy of a home made dvd. I do not know the format of the source disc. The process went well. The PD-DVD100 WILL PLAY THE DISC. However, the disc will not play on the player...


Have you tried to make sure the disc is finalized. Second check the manufacture website to make sure that the dvd player you are trying to play it in is compatible with the disc type that you recored on. Veryfy this by looking at the disc type on the dvd commonly refered to as +R or -R

See the manual, page 8:

What are “Recording modes”? for DVD-RW
There are two recording modes available using this
recorder: VR mode and Video mode. When recording to
a DVD-R disc, recordings are always in Video mode.
DVD-RW discs can be formatted for VR mode recording
or Video mode recording.
VR mode recording
• 4 different picture quality/recording time settings available
(SP, LP, EP, XP)
• Not playable on regular DVD players
• Recordings can be extensively edited
• Total number of titles on the disc should be less than
99.
Video mode recording
• 4 different picture quality/recording time settings available
(SP, LP, EP, XP)
• Playable on regular DVD players (after finalizing)
• Limited editing features
• Total number of titles on the disc should be less than
99.
Note :
DVD-Video Format (Video mode) is a new format for
recording on DVD-R/RW discs that was approved by
the DVD Forum in 2000. You may therefore experience
problems playing recordable DVD discs in some players.
Symptoms include video artifacts, audio and/or
video dropouts and playback suddenly stopping.
Our company cannot take responsibility for problems
playing discs recorded on this VCR/DVD Recorder in
other players.
