Gateway AR 230 DVD Recorder will no recognize any of my dvds

My DVD recorder will not recognize any of my DVDs. Every time I try to play a DVD it just says "NO DISC." It will not even try to load. What should I do?

    My Gateway AR-230 recorded several disks from VHS tapes sucessfully. The next disk I put in I recorded some VHS onto then turned the unit off to resume later. When I turned it back on it would not recognize the disk. I could not "finalize" the disk as the AR=230 could not read it, it just put onto the screen to insert a disk! I put in a new disk and the screen read it and put "infalid disk" I called Gateway and they had me reset the unit. That did not help. Any suggestions?

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. Usually any cheep brand will work.

How to transfer Panasonic DMR-E80H recorded DVDs to computer


I have to agree with XELIAM regarding finishing the disk, under the DVD "FUNCTIONS" selection from the remote. I also use the SLYSOFT products to transfer my videos to what ever other mode of video I wish to have, whether iPOD (MP4), or DIVX (AVI) or loads of other options. Slysoft makes a GREAT product

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?
