    I am also having a hard time finding dvds that will record in my dvd player recorder. I am still buying and returning dvds!!!

    It is telling me to eject my disk as it won't playback, what kind should I buy?

    I also have a Sylvania DVR90VF that will not load a new disc. I keep getting a Disc Error, Please eject the disc, Playback feature may not be available on this disc. I am using 16x DVD-R Disc . Cannot find 2x 4x or 8x disc that I was told to use by Customer Support. I had no problem burning 1/2 spool (25) of these same discs before.
    Sylvania Customer Support sucks. This unit should record on any DVD-R disc no mater what the burn speed. What a piece of junk. PLEASE HELP, Lenny

    I am having a similar problem with my Sylvania DVR90VF. I am using a Fujifilm disc (DVD-RW) that writes at speeds of 1x to 2x. It was working fine for the first year. I was able to record my TV shows and play them back with no problem. All of a sudden it is not recognizing the disc and I get an error message. Do you have any solutions for this?

  • chetster57 Mar 10, 2009

    Same problem as others have noted - won't recognize new disks anymore (even though I did the format upgrade two years ago). I'll certainly be staying away from Sylvania DVD recorders in the future!

Unfortunately without a firmware upgrade the only disks you can use are DVD-R or DVD-RW. The tricky part is that you can ONLY USE 2X speed. Per my conversation with Sylvania there is a firmware update that will allow you to use up to 8x disks, but they are charging $17.00 for it.

I use MAXELL DVD-RW 4.7 GB 2X 15-pk (2 hrs in SP Mode), and they work just fine. UPC 25215-62768. I usually get them on sale at Office Depot for $ 6.99 (regular $20 or so).

Trying to record on a DVD-R , after several minutes trying to load i get a msg saying it can neither read nor play this disc , check disc,,please help


I've had this problem with trying to record on CD-Rs also. DVD and CD recorders can be very fussy. You just have to get a piece of dust or a fingerprint on the CD or DVD that's being recorded onto and it gets kicked back as a check disc or blank disc..

Another problem is some recorders will only accept certain brands. I've had problems recording onto a SONY CD-R with a SONY recorder! So, in summing up, try a different brand or make sure the disc is clean. Sometimes just taking the disc out and putting it back in in a different position will make the recorder think it's an OK disc. Hope this helps.

yes all the DVD recorders are very sensitive to what brand is fed to them......go back to your ole faithful Maxell here are 3 sites you can try......J & R music, Amazon.com or Ebay

  1. http://www.jr.com/product/productListing.jsp?Ntt=maxell+dvd+blank
  2. http://www.amazon.com/gp/search/ref=sr_tref_p_brandtextbin_1?rh=n%3A1036658%2Cp_brandtextbin%3AMaxell%2Ck%3Advd+blank+media&keywords=dvd+blank+media&ie=UTF8&qid=1282862945&rnid=15784691
  3. http://shop.ebay.com/i.html?rt=nc&LH_BIN=1&_nkw=maxell+dvd&_trksid=p3286.c0.m301
note if you updated (firmware) your player you may need to purchase the dvd w/ 4x-16 speed..

If exact model is Samsung DVD-VR357, than it doesn't even has to recognise blank disc as your unit is DVD PLAYER with Video Casette Recorder.

See Specs. for your unit below:
Function Combination VCR Y Compatibility Playback Media DVD-R,DVD-RW,DVD+R,DVD+RW,CD-R/RW,CD,VHS, DVD-RAM Playback Formats MP3, WMA, JPEG, MPEG-4, DivX A/V Quality Progressive Scan Y HD Upconversion 720p/1080i Digital-to-Analog Converter 10-Bit/54MHz DTS Output Y Dolby Digital Surround Sound Y Connectivity HDMI CEC Y Convenience Child Protection Parental Control Physical Features Connectivity HDMI Output Y Component Video Output 1(Rear) S-Video Output 1(Rear) Composite Video Output 1(Rear) Coaxial Digital Audio Outputs 1(Rear) Optical Audio Output 1(Rear) Product Weight & Dimensions Dimension 16.9" x 3.1" x 11" Weight 8.8Lbs. Shipment Weight & Dimensions Dimension 20.2" x 7.1" x 15.1" Weight 12.1Lbs.

Closest model match for DVD recording unit would be DVD-VR375

Unfortunately you have player only and you won't be able to recor DVDs with it whatsoever.

Good luck

Dvd player wont play


Make sure that the DVD Disc is of the format that your DVD recorder can read. For example, if your recorder specifically requires a DVD -R type disk, it will puke on a DVD +R disk.
