Question about Lite On LVW-1107HC1 DVD Recorder

2 Answers

After formatting the disk, it reads that it is an invalid disk.

I have used these disks before for recording, so I know it is not the type of disk I have. We also have a hard time playing some disk, it will sit there and spin and spin, but never play the disk. I run the satilite through this, then to the TV, never had a problem before. I have tried recording on 3 different disks and get the same error each time.

I have a Liteon LVW-1107. It is a very tempramental machine. It tends to prefer +R or +RW disks. Will record on -Rs but may fail with them.
On occasion when I insert a store bought DVD movie I will get an
invalid disk warning. The machine seems to get confused.

What I do is pull the power cord and let it set a few minutes.
Give it a little time to reset. Sometimes you have to do this a couple times. It has always worked for me. I hope it will work for you.

Good luck. This is not a top of the line machine.

Try a different brand of disk you will be surprised. The liteons change with use. Sometines +Rs work better. Do a headcleaning as a last resort but do not scrub to much.

Invalid disc reading

I find that I get the Invalid disk message most likely when I use a DVD-R disk. So now I use only DVD+R for this machine. I have also read somewhere that the problem could be solved by using a Laser Lens Cleaner Cleaning disk.

Every disk I put in to record something says bad disk


There's very little information about your problem, like model and disks you are using. I can give you general information.

All DVD's doesn't work will all types of recorders.

Check what types of disk your equipment uses. Maybe needs lens cleaner or is a equipment malfunction. If it reads, then most likely is in good shape. From my experience, I have two DVD recordable setup boxes. But one only accepts DVD-RAM and the other accepts DVD+Recordables and ReWritables.

If this can't help, you can post more detail about your equipment.

Dvd player wont play

Make sure that the DVD Disc is of the format that your DVD recorder can read. For example, if your recorder specifically requires a DVD -R type disk, it will puke on a DVD +R disk.

Dvd keeps reading no disc

It can be several reasons
1. Disk is upside down
2. Lens is durty. You will need to use CD/DVD cleaning disk for that
3. Disk is having diffrent region code or recorded in diffrent formate (for instance player playback disk recorded in NTSC, and you trying to playback disk in PAL formate)
4.Disk is recorded at higher speed (for instanse player markered X16, but disk is recorded at X24)
Good Luck

Recording Fall, Invalid disk

Try using Sony +R discs. or +RW's are good, any brand as long as they are +'s. For some reason alot of +R discs brands will not work, I wait and just get Sony +R or the +RW's on sale and stock up and I have no more troubles. Mine is the 05MU. The ZU is a little strange with the RW but will still record. Hope this helps.

Problem dubbing from VHS to DVD

Try different brands of disk, most dvd-r recorder are disk sensitive, buy only one disk per brand, find the brand compatible to your recorder by just inserting the disk and wait for confirmation that it is ready for recording session. I have tried around five brands, sony and maxell as well as verbatim are good dvd-r disk.
