    I have an IBM Think Pad and have burned DVD's to DVD+R as well as DVD-R and my DVD players won't read either of them.

  1. DVD-RW reads and burn DVDs and CDs with or without a tv connections (computer accessory)
  2. DVD-R if its is a dvd player it should be able to read DVD and record dvds with tv connection (this is not a computer accessory but a tv accessory)
  3. DVD-ROM can only read and can not write on DVDs

Have a samsung Samsung LE26A456C and a toshiba dvd recorder. Have set up telly fine, set up video to play fine but cannot record

What is it that you are trying to record? If you are trying to record a DVD you have purchased onto a DVD-R, you will almost always run into a problem because most purchased DVDs have copyright codes burned into them, making them unrecordable. Most VHS tapes have these copyright protection codes in them as wel. If you are trying to record a television show, and are unable to do so, make sure that the DVD that you are using is compatible with your burner. If your burner is set up to record only DVD-R, then you must use only the DVD-R discs. If your burner is set up to record only DVD+R, then you must use only the DVD+R discs. Some burners will record both the DVD-R and DVD+R. If you have the right discs for your burner, make sure that the discs are correctly formatted to be recorded. Also, make sure that if you are recording from a cable box or other input that you have the correct unput channel selected on the burner. If these suggestions don't work, then it could be the brand of DVD that you have purchased (i.e. Sony,Maxell,TDK,Fuji,etc.). Check your manual for acceptable brands. I hope this helps you out. Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

LG RH177 - Cannot read discs....

Well, to solve the problem quick, I actually called in the service guy. Over here, LG comes to the door, but at an extra $40 bucks excluding parts. What I realise is that the drive is very easy to install, so could have just bought the part and installed myself, saving the $40.
With a DVD drive, it is hard to pinpoint the problem. And it being so cheap (old tech/over supply), most service centres would just replace the whole thing.

Samsung SHW08A DVD±RW doesn't burn dvd+r

Its because you need a firmware update. The media you are currently using isn't recognized. I stumbled in here with the same problem. I haven't been able to find an update, so I will probably have to try a different brand of disc myself. The burner worked fine until I tried using a new pack of Verbatim discs.

Does not recognize a blank DVD

I bought DVD-R 1-16xspeed made by TDK which work fine.... it seems to be a bit of a mine field of discs available but I do remember these were recommended by Samsung via a leaflet in the box.

Not recording a full film

1. Insert disc.
2. Press "DVD" button on remote.
3. Press "REC MODE/REC SPEED" button.
4. Keep pressing until desired recording speed.

I believe your problem is that the movie exceeds the 120 minute limit on the target disc at the default recording speed (SP). Try LP instead.

Samsung dvdr-120

try checking on the recording mode of the DVD. V recording mode produces more compatible DVD disc. Stay away from VR mode. You may refer to your manual.
