Can't get reliable recording discs

I have had mt liteon A740 GX for some months now. I can't get a good reliable recording discs to clear my hard drive. I have bought over 250 discs in batches of 25 and 50, some work some don't. My best so far are a value pack green in colour by Traxdata. Out of 100 discs I have managed to use maybe 20 to record, Can you recommend a disc that will be reliable to work with this machine.

Re: Can't get reliable recording discs

There actually is a recommended list on Lite-on website but I have used bulk-paq, ridisk and phillips without problems until it stopped reading any alltogether. I recently cleaned it with a DVD cleaner disk and its working properly again. Also on the website is a download for updated firmware which may help in your case.

Liteon DVD recorder LVW-5045 has disc inside and won't open tray

Use your knuckles to knock on top of cabinet just above disc tray door while at the same time pressing open button,99% of the time disc tray will open.The problem you have is caused by a worn out belt drive or the tray is out of alignment.The disc tray belts only cost $2,when tray is open you can see the minature belt that controls door to the right.Use twizzers to remove and replace.Belt size 1.9

How to connect to sky

The Sky Box should have 2 scarts on the back, one to go into your TV and one to go else where. One of them goes into the back of your DVD recorder.

You can then source and record through the DVD.

Won't read DVDs

Hi, Ive just repaired several liteon's ( incidently they are identical inside to some philips models ). In most cases the non writing or non reading problem is caused by dust on the laser glass. You have to open the unit then remove the dvd drive then remove its covers and just give a wipe of the laser with a clean non fluffy cloth. If theres lots of dust in other parts of the drive then this will need to be removed also as it could easily get onto the laser when in use. Even almost new liteons can suffer the problem , it only needs a little bit of dust to top the laser shining onto the dvd , instead the dust just reflects the light back. Hope this helps.

Can't read blank DVD for recording / can't transfer film from HD to dvd

I presume at this stage you have tried a different type of dvd disc and not just the one type and you are using the correct format dvdr for your machine.If you have tried all this it could be the laser,but make sure you try everthing else before replacing optic assy.
