I have a gateway ar 230 dvd player and have always had good results. Now though, It will not play most of my recorded dvds, even the ones that I have played on it before. It will still play originials and some recorded but 90% of the ones that I used on it before will not work. What could be causing the problem?

My Cyberhome DVD 300 usede to work fine. I rarely used it since I bought it a Wal-Mart less than six months ago. Lost my manual and codes so I don't know how to solve this problem. A red light is showing with a DVD stuck inside the player. Any ideas??

It wont record on 16xdvd+r discs? what is the properdisc


  • Media Type that the unit will play CD , DVD , CD-R , SVCD , CD-RW , DVD+R , DVD-R , DVD+RW , DVD-RW , DVD-ROM , Video CD
  • Media Format PAL , NTSC
  • Recordable Media DVD+R , DVD+RW only.. It will not record on the more expensive and compatible DVD-R, DVD-RW.
  • I recommend burning at a slower speed such as 2.4X, 4X or at most 8X.
  • I had similar issues resulting in many "coasters" for drinks burning at a faster rate even with my computer. Although some disks are designed to burn at a faster rate, software and components sometimes cannot keep up resulting in wasted money and time.
  • It may also be the media (manufacturer of disks). No matter which DVR or Burner you may have certain hardware schemes do not like certain media. It is a trial and error process. Just make sure the store has a return policy for the disks if they don't work. I have never had a problem returning disks to Staples that did not work.
I hope this helps and good luck.

On my AR_230 I have been trying to record from


Your DVD player can only read certain formats. You will need to use a program like Nero to convert the stuff you download the videos that your DVD player can read. Nero has good documentation, so just take a look at that, and decide what format you want to go with.

Your player should say what it can play in the manual.

Disconnect the "audio-out" cables from the unit.
Leave the "audio-in" cables connected.
Try to record. Does this work correctly?

Recorded dvd's won't play on other dvd players Toshiba d-r410


You can play these recordings without finalizing them in the D-R410, but if you want them to play
in other DVD players, they need to be finalized. See pages 28 to 32 in manual. If you want to
finalize the disks you've already made, follow the directions on page 32.

Invalid disk


I contacted Gateway and found out that the AR-230 will not work with anything more than 4x DVD's. Usually it will format DVD-RW's but avoid memorex brand. Usually any other cheep brand will work.
