Problems recording DVD

Every time I insert a blank DVD to be recorded my computer crashes and have to be reiniciated. I tried different brands of DVD and still doing the same thing. The only way to record is to insert the blank DVD while the machine is still reiniciating. I use a Pioneer recorder.

It sounds to me like you are having driver or software trouble/conflicts with CD/DVD monitoring programs. After booting, look in the lower right hand corner and see if there are any icons like DISK AT ONCE or VIRTUAL DISK MONITOR running. If you have any programs running in the system tray, it is probably that which is causing the problems.

If worse comes to worse, go into CONTROL PANEL, ADD REMOVE PROGRAMS and then remove any program that involves CD or DVD writing, such as ROXIO, NERO, SONIC, any of these. After removal, reboot, and then once everything is up and running try inserting a blank DVD. If it runs correctly (should show a blank disk or ask you what you want to do with a blank disk), then it was a software driver problem. Once fixed, you can either reinstall your old CD/DVD writing management program (like Nero or Roxio), or try a more stable and higher quality alternative (like the excellent, and free, DEEPBURNER), which is less likely to have driver/software problems.

Good luck...

    You tried everything listed above without result? Hmm.

    More ideas...

    In DEVICE MANAGER uninstall the DVD drive and then reboot allowing it to reinstall itself. Then, if it still does not work, try installing the legacy drivers you'll find if you search on download.com for the keywords ASPI LAYER, and then reboot and see if that fixes it.

    If not, right click on the drive in DEVICE MANAGER again and try the various communication settings, starting with DMA (reboot, check to see if it is fixed) and then working your way down through the PIO MODEs. One of them should work best (usually DMA).

Trying to record on a DVD-R , after several minutes trying to load i get a msg saying it can neither read nor play this disc , check disc,,please help


I've had this problem with trying to record on CD-Rs also. DVD and CD recorders can be very fussy. You just have to get a piece of dust or a fingerprint on the CD or DVD that's being recorded onto and it gets kicked back as a check disc or blank disc..

Another problem is some recorders will only accept certain brands. I've had problems recording onto a SONY CD-R with a SONY recorder! So, in summing up, try a different brand or make sure the disc is clean. Sometimes just taking the disc out and putting it back in in a different position will make the recorder think it's an OK disc. Hope this helps.

I'm trying to record a DVD on the DVD/CD-RW combo recorder in my Acer Aspire laptop. When I insert a blank DVD, whether it's a R or a -R, I just keep getting the message to insert a blank DVD. How do I...


Try a different manufacturer/brand of DVD-recordable disks.
If you still have the problem, then your drive is malfunctioning,
and you need to get a qualified technician to disassemble your computer, and replace it.

I recently have not been able to record on DVD+RW discs. An error message keeps coming up saying it cannot record on this disc.The dumb part about it is I still have a couple of discs of the same nature...


According to the user's manual, for DVD+RW or DVD-RW discs, it may take some time for the disc to be recognized and then it has to format the disc prior to using it. This should be an automatic process when the disc is inserted (looking at page 17 of the owner's manual). If this is not happening, you may need to clean the DVD with a DVD cleaner (a DVD disc with tiny brushes that wipe the lense on the unit while the disc spins). You could first try using a can of compressed air and blowing any dust/dirt out of the DVD slot (with the tray open).

After recording a one hour episode, won't recognize the dvd.


Try inserting your DVD media into the PC and doing a 'quick format'. The LG is not seeing what it considers to be media that it can use. It is not seeing that you have inserted recordable media. Sometimes you can reformat the DVD or do a quick media erase, and the LG can then put on its blank "squares" that is uses for its menu selection. I think that it what it does when it 'initializes' a new media.

Can't record DVDs


OK. Finally "solved" this problem. You must use the brand name "Maxell" DVD disks, 2x or 4x (maybe 8x). Do not use variable speed disks (e.g. 1x--4x) or 16x. Walmart carries these!

The DVR -RW 2x finally got mine to record. I didn't think this would work, but it did. I am still experimenting with it. Had to download (free) VLC player to get it to play on my computer. Works fine in other DVD players.

Credits to the Sears' repairman, the guy at F., and my patience!
