Re: LG RC195 VCR/DVD Recorder

I don't know if it's normal, but it doesn't save any changes you make unless you eject the disc or power off (not unplug) the machine so that it re-reads the disc. So after you record, eject or power off, and after you've finished editing, before finalizing, eject or power off. Then it should appear as you want it.

You need to "Finalize" the disc, or it will not play on any other dvd player other than your LG. Finalizing the disc permanently commits any data onto the disc, no more writing or editing can be done.

Dvd recorder won't play disc

your recorder will normally give you 5 changes at different regions, and on the last region change that is the one that it stays on, although if you you have never changed the region go to> my computer>right click on your dvd drive>properties and on the hardware tab, your hard drive and dvd drive will show, highlight your dvd drive and click properties and click the dvd regions tab and look at the region to see wot its set at, if you still have 5 changes, it should be set at your region one, if there are no changes left you need to search and download a region free dvd programme to allow any region dvd to be played programme

The Manual for your LG DVD Home Ent unit says: Some DVD+/-RW, DVD+/-R or CDRW, CD-R cannot be played on this unit due to the recording quality or physical condition of the disc, or the characteristics of the recording device and authoring software" So If what you burn on your PC can be played on another stand alone DVD Player Recorder than I would say that the problem is just that, not compatible media. Codecs, Firmware Update, Recording software used and Region Code can play part in problems, just depends on how much you can eliminate yourself.

We have a vcr/dvd, model dvp620vr/07, we are having probs recording our pics onto a dvd and having the recorder play it, our computer will, why not the vcr/dvd recorder, what kind of disc do we need to...

What program or software are you using to make the DVD? The DVD must be "finalized" before it can be read on an external device, such as a VCR/DVD player. PC's however, can handle the un-finalized (is that a word?) discs because it assumes you may want to add more files (pictures). Once the disc is finalized, no more files can be added to it.

Did not burn dvd

The DW-100 burns files in the same format as they were originally recorded by your camcorder. The Canon Vixia HG-21 records in AVCHD--a high-definition format--which is completely different from standard-definition DVD and which is not compatible with regular DVD players (even though the disc itself is a standard DVD-R). As it states in the manual for the camcorder, "High-definition (AVCHD) discs created using the optional DW-100 DVD Burner can be played back only with AVCHD-compatible DVD players."

The DW-100 is really more for archiving your files in their native format than for creating standard DVDs that can be played on regular DVD players. Regular (standard-definition) DVD players can't play AVCHD, although many Blu-Ray players can. Unless you use a Blu-Ray player that supports AVCHD playback, there are two solutions to your problem:

1. If you want to keep your recordings high-def, you can view them by playing them back with the DW-100, which must be connected to your camcorder via the USB cable, then from your camcorder to your TV via an HDMI cable.

2. If you want to have standard DVDs that you can play on any DVD player, either import the files to your computer and convert them to standard-definition using video-editing software, then burn them to DVD with your computer's DVD burner, or connect the analog output (component=better, composite=good) to a stand-alone DVD recorder (i.e. not the DW-100).

I've used the route of Vixia HF-10 camcorder > composite output > Panasonic DMR-ES25S DVD recorder (about $65 used on eBay) with pretty good results when I've wanted to give videos to relatives who don't have Blu-Ray players. You just have to make sure to set the camcorder 's analog (composite) output to 480i so that it formats the picture in the right aspect ratio, or else the 16:9 image will be squeezed to 4:3 instead of letterboxed.

Hope this helps. Good luck.

I recorded my movies on the dw 100 but now i can't grt them to play on my dvd player

The DW-100 records discs based on the format they were originally recorded.

If your camera is recording HiDef videos than the discs this unit creates will be viewable on a Blu-ray disc player.

If your camera is recording in Standard Definition (ie. NOT HD) then I believe that the discs will work in regular or upconverting DVD players.

My Canon camcorder does not record in Standard Def so can't quite vouch for that last comment though.

LG vs Lite On

both are just the same features just to write file from your hard drive. Maybe your point is you want the video from your VHS tapes will transfer to your hard drive. The only way to copy the video from your VHS is you need an external VHS player at the same time it will record the running video to a soft copy.

Please check this maybe this will be helpful

Please rate me solve if you like my solution.
