Does the DVD-R155 create PC compatible DVDs?

Hi,
I'm purchasing a DVD-R155 this week, and I just want to check that I will be able to run dvds created by the recorded in my laptop DVD drive?

Thanks

Luke

I'm using the DVD-R122 to record from cable TV. The video will play on a desktop PC but I'm not getting the audio. I don't know if this is a block on the part of Comcast to prevent subscribers from making copies of On Demand movies or not. I previously had Disk Network and was able to make a recording of Portland, Oregon Rose Parade and played it on my computer. So my thought is YES you can play it on your computer.

I used a disk cleaner because I kept getting a "No Disc" message after putting one in for recording. (same disc I had used previously that worked). It still reads no disc,then I put a recorded movie in and...


It sounds like the unit may be beginning to fail. DVDs are created in one of two ways - they are either burned (when you create one with the recorder) or they are stamped (most commercial DVDs are created from a master this way.) As the unit ages, the strength of the laser used to "read" the DVD begins to get weaker and weaker, eventually becoming too weak to read even the best DVDs. Not all commercial DVDs are created equally, which means some may have a deeper, neater pit pressed into the substrate making it possible for a weak signal to get reflected and read by the hardware (hence, you will experience the ability the read some commercial DVDs and not others.)

DVDs you create at home creates the "pits" by focusing the laser beam on a dye layer and causing a dye to change from translucent to opaque. Where the dye is translucent the laser beam is reflected back to the reader and where it is opaque, not. We get the 0 and 1 state that digital signals use to reproduce/transmit signals in this way.

You may be able to get the unit serviced and have the board that sends/receives the laser beam replaced - but that may be as expensive as buying a new unit, complete with warranty.

WILL MY DVD PLAY AREA 1 AND AREAV4 DVD'S?


Hi camonk2004,

It's interesting that your DVD player was purchased in Russia but plays Region 1 DVDs. Region 1 is North America. Does your Player also play Russian DVDs (region 5)? If so, then it has probably been modified to play DVDs from multiple regions.

Check the back side of the DVD player - the rear panel should have a Region number on it. If the region number is 1, then try playing a Region 5 DVD. If it reads the DVD, then the modification that was done in Russia will probably allow it to read any DVD. IF the Region 5 DVD won't play (or if it is ejected automatically), then your player's region control os still intact, and it will only play DVDs from the same region as the one listed on the rear panel of the player (or DVDs marked "ALL").

I hope this helps - please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Kind Regards,
H2H

Sony BluRaywon't play back disk


That is one of the problem with manufacturers that don't clearly explain the consumers that most of the blue ray dvd player is designed to play blue ray dvds &regular dvds,but it wasn't never designed to back any DVD-R or DVD-RW.
Sorry,there is no way around it,because Sony enjoyed being exclusive in many things.

Re recording on previously used DVDs


What kind of DVDs are you using? Reliable or the cheap ones? Also, remember that the loudly boasted life span of a digital disc refers to readings, not writing and re-writing. Tried to format them in another recorder yet? Oh, and a cleanup on the discs themselves is required. Dust, fingerprints... everything seems to attach itself on a dvd.

Changing the region code


Hi,

You can only change the region code a few times (usually 5), so I wouldn't do it. You should leave the current player at region 1, and buy and install another DVD player and set it to region 4, then you will have 1 for each region you want.

Will This DVD Recorder Burn DVDs from a Desktop?


Ive never seen a standalone DVD recorder that can connect to a pc unless it had a Hard Drive. This model is a Target exclusive company. These devices are designed to record video direct from either Antenna,Cable,VCR,or something such as a game console, or camcorder.

Hope this helps!

DVD player not working


Hello riceclan_dad

It could be a compatibility issue w/ the media you are using. To that end, ...

(01) Do you get this error msg. w/ original DVDs?

(02) Or are you trying to play DVDs created at home?

If your answer is YES to (01), then it is unlikely the issue is media incompatibility.

If the answer is YES to (02) (and NO to (01)), try using DVD-R dvds (media) rather than DVD+R (DVD+R is a newer standard that older players do not recognize).

There is another FixYa post (similar issue) w/ one solution HERE. The expert suggests having the lense (on the DVD player) checked and possibly replaced.

Please, let us know if this helps.

Thank you,
BJ

Recording on DVD-R with Samsung DVD-R155


Heating issue. If you remove the cover and touch the processor chip - you will not be able to keep your finger there for more than a second (that is if your really want to use this crude method to test the temp).

I have taken measurement and its around 50C. Thats a lot for no heatsink or cooling fan.

If you have the unit in a cabinet with no air flow - you will not be able to use this unit for more than 3 months and up to a year. Best to have it on top of a cabinet or in one with an open front and back to allow some airflow - or just anywhere where its in the open.

Samsung has another unit - the AR650, which I believe is discontinued - which for some strange reason has realized this concern. My guess its a whole different team of designers (or at least some folks with some brains) and added a cooling fan into the unit. Its the same exact case and motherboard as the 135, and 155. There are absolutely no issues with it rejecting disc's - even after a year of use for some users.

In Summary:

Solution 1 - Place it in the open
Solution 2 - Remove case and drill holes to the topside
Solution 3 - Remove case and add a fan
Solution 4 - Remove case and add a heatsink over proc (will still need to drill holes over heatsink..
Solution 5 - We can all complain to Samsung and have them recall the units
