Re: problem with dvd+r

Check the Manual - it will tell what sort of disks it can play.
The disk will need finalizing however.

There is a possibility that the DVD was not burnt to be compatible with other players. Or the player you are trying to play it on does not play burnt DVDs.

Samsung wont play entire divx movie

If you are talking about the fact that this player zooms picture when playing divx and does not allow manual correction, my solution was to go out and buy a pioneer player today (DV-220VK). It's strange as the samsung plays normal dvd format fine but they have obviously got the divx playback wrong. So far the pioneer has been great!

Hello. I have this product but I can't get it to record. i'm using the dvd-r and dvd +rw. Still wwill not record. Im i doing something wrong? These bad fellas are not cheap.

I too have tried several types and makes of DVD-R and RW none that I have work. What gives. I called the CS # and they are sending me a fireware disc. Hopefully this will fix the problem? This REC at one time had a MSRP ranging $125-140. I have one that I got at WALMART ( of all places) for less than $80 and its running rings aound the SAMSUNG.

My samsung dvd player will not play dvds, but it

Are you trying to playing recordable DVDs (DVD+R or DVD-R) ? if so, try playing original DVDs (the type you rent or buy) those are pressed DVDs - if it works, then your player does not support DVD-R or DVD+R - If you are using a computer burner that supports bitsetting you can change the booktype of a DVD+R to DVD-ROM to fool your player.

If however your player cannot play either DVD-R, DVD+R nor original DVDs and only plays CDs, then your dvd laser diode is finished - there is one for CD and one for DVD, this is rare but happens, there is nothing you can do, any repairs would be very expensive - you are better off getting a new DVD player they are very inexpensive now and any repairs will cost you multiple times a new DVD player.

    Samsung DVD-V$357 recorded dvds won't play on other machines

    Did you finalize the disk? If not, this should solve your problem. When the disk is finalized you should be able to play it on your computer if you can play other DVDs on it. Some other DVD players can only play specific disks (i.e. DVD-R, DVD+R). This may be another problem.

    Make sure you are not using DVD+R dics - the player won't play these. It is OK with DVD-R.

    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.
