Question about Samsung DVD-HR735 DVD Recorder/HDD Recorder

1 Answer

DVD copies stop playing after 30 minutes

All DVD copies (not originals) stop playing after exactly 30 minutes, picture freezes and recorder has to be restarted. Buzzing sound increases closer to 30 minutes. Looks like copy protection but this is stupid to do in this way. Could try to update firmare from Samsung but how do you do that? File ends with UTF extension and Samsung give no help.

I have a samsung dvd-v4600...and when i put the dvd disc in it just keeps loading and will not load ..what do i do to fix this?

Does it do with original DVD or copied DVD ?.
if the original one works fine but the others not, your DVD may not capable of playing copy -R/RW discs..even though your DVD specs says: Plays DVD-Video, video-mode DVD-R/RW and DVD+R/RW, CD-R/CD-RW, MP3 CD, Kodak Picture CD, and JPEG image CDs, sometimes this happens due to bad recording of DVD .Try to use better recorded DVD or if possible use the original ones..
Thanks in advance for rating me..Regards

I have recorded a TV programme to the Hard Drive. However - I started recording manually and forgot to stop recording. So I have a recording 30 hours long! I want to copy the first 90 minutes to a DVD....

I used the edit function. I fast forwarded to the end of the section I wanted to record. I then stop the fast forward and used the split function. This split the original recording into two parts - the first 1hr 38min which I wanted to keep and the rest. It saved as two files and I was able to copy the first part to DVD and discard the rest.

Picture/Sound freezes

This model does NOT work well with HD boxes. I would double-check the Philips website, and upgrade the firmware for device since all 3 players were doing same thing.

ILO Recorder DVD05R - Playback jumps 10min, 20 min and more...

Does the disc still play in other dvd player? My ILO has always been picky to play rentals so I just have a cheap COBY player hooked up to front inputs of my ILO. I use it to watch the dvds, only use the Ilo to record. Saves wear and tear on my ILO but cannot find a universal remote to operate them both and my tv. If it still records okay thats what I would do, just watch the discs in a secondary unit. Sounds like time to start shopping for new recorder.

Panasonic dv player keeps stopping

Does it freeze in play also? Might be an optical pickup issue and require a replacement pickup.

Movies on my recorded discs freeze after a few minutes of play

Sometimes this unit gets "confused" - not sure why -- but try first using a CD cleaning disk and let it start and stop a couple times (sometimes lens gets dirty and does this) - if that doesn't help then try unplugging unit and leave unplugged (from wall socket) for about 30min then plug in, set local time and then see if the disks play okay - sometimes this "resets system"
