If the DVD recorder is an early model, it may be having trouble understanding some of the newer copy-protection schemes that are in use.

There's not too much you can do for this kind of problem, but you can try looking on the manufacturer's website to see if there's a firmware update for the DVD recorder. It would be something you would download and burn to a CD or DVD and then load into the recorder. That would update the DVD player's software so it can work with newer discs.

Machine will not recognise a new disc when trying to copy a recording


Did the previous machine show EXACTLY the same problem, or did that machine have another issue?

Regarding this one, does the DVD drive respond well to playback discs, such as commercial release DVDs, or DVDs recorded on other machines? Does it play back CDs OK? If it passes these tests, move on to-

I suggest trying to record on different discs - such as a DVD-RAM, or on a different brand of DVD-R, or DVD-Rs from a different batch to your current ones.

If the machine succeeds here, all good and well, if it fails at this point, it seems the machine is faulty and should be returned.

Cannot format a dvd-rw disc or record to the disc.


Unless you posted this question in the wrong category, you can't use the Sansui VRDVD4000 to record to DVD. It is a DVD player only, not a DVD burner. It will play and record VHS tapes, but with DVDs it will only play them.

To record to a DVD, you would need a DVD burner. Many modern computers include a DVD burner, so maybe either your computer or someone you know's computer has a DVD burner.

The new DVD-RW discs will not record. The old


Is it the CD/DVDs you are using? I have seen that many DVD burners that do record, will not play on Laptops/PC or other players. See the recommended DVDs the manufact. requires and go form there.

My LG DVD RECORDER, MODEL RH7500 won't play DVDs.


Check the model specifications for your device. Some players will only accept DVD-R and not DVD+R or not DVD+RW discs. I know it all seems the same, and it's very frustrating, but many companies restrict the type of discs they will allow. My player does +R but not -R. It should still be able to read DVD discs that you made yourself, but they will be of a different type.

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.

Can not read disc


I mainly use my DVR to record TV shows on DVD-RAM discs (Panasonic brand or Maxell). I've had no problems with the DVD-RAM discs. However, today when I put a DVD-R disc in the recorder, I got an "Incompatible Disc" error message. I tried a second disc from the same set, and got the same message. I tried out some of the DVD-Rs that I recorded last year and I could read them. Tried a DVD-RAM. That was OK. So, I tried another DVD-R disc. That one is OK. I don't know if the problem is that these DVD-Rs are getting a little old (2 years??) or if the recorder is developing its own problems reading discs.
