DVD-R playback on MacBook Pro

I have a JVC DR-MV7SU (had a DR-MV1SU). I have a new MacBook Pro running Leopard 10.5 When I put a disc recorded on my JVC into my MacBook it will not recognize the disc and ejects it. The discs will play on my old Powerbook with Tiger 10.4 and CD burner. Apple did replace the DVD drive with no success. Any thoughts on compatibility? thanks

Where can I get an owner's manual?

JVC has the Instruction manual for the DR-MV1S on the product support page: . The final letter in the model number identifies the country where the DVD recorder was sold. The link to the manual is under Literature on the left side of the page. The direct link to the manual is .

I hope this helps.

My JVC DR-MV7 will play most DVDs and even record, but recently, it stopped being able to finalize. After I get the message saying "finalization has failed," I can't even play the DVD anymore - thus losing...

My JVC DR-MV7 will not accept any disc for playback. I insert a movie disc and it consistently rejects them. After about 15 to 20 attempts, sometimes it will stay and begin reading the disc. It also sounds like some internal components are encountering some resistance (moving parts inside?). Any ideas?

It is pretty common problem.
If all of your DVDs are having same problems,
it is most likely either optical sensor is at fault. The other could be the actual loading mechanism problem.
If the dvd tray(drawer) closes all the way in but the DVD disc never completes the loading(reading) procedures, 1) it could be simply dirty or damaged disc. 2) the optical pickup device (eye) is dirty or just went defective. 3) sometimes the drawer tray that houses the DVD did not complete to engage in disc reading position can produce this result.

I would suggest: first check the position of the drawer and condition(s) of your DVD disc itself.
If the pickup device(optical eye) is dirty or defective, that needs to be serviced by a qualified technician. or contact JVC service center. Their information can be found at
