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.

Disc error message when load DVD


Are you loading to play or to record?
Commercial DVDs should play.
DVDs for recording may not be recognized by your drive. First make sure that the disc is blank. You must insert a blank disc of the proper format: DVD-R or RW, DVD+R or RW. Even with the proper format, some brands may not behave the same way as other brands.

Recording


sometimes this happens. now. the dvd you put in was it rewritable. a friend could not run his dvd recorder until i gave him a dvd+r rw disc in and lo, it worked.
some dvds have this function without telling you, perhaps it is in the instructions in small print. 
also, try a straight dvd+r disc, not a rewrite. experiment with other discs because some will not see cheap discs but expensive ones.
i have dvd that does not even reconise a dvd, but when i wish to burn a dvd, i use that one because it is the best.
strange isnt it...

Dvds recorded on Samsung will ONLY play on Samsung


Hi,

Have you finalised the disc before trying to play it elsewhere? If not this could well be the problem. The option is the menu.

Hope this helps

Tevion player shows BAD DISC,


Since the unit is under warranty, you can't touch anything without voiding the warranty. This problem could be as simple as a dirty lens. Bring the unit in for repair under warranty.

It should recognise the discs. If you just bought it new, it's under warranty. Take it back and exchange it.
