Question about LG RH177 DVD Recorder/HDD Recorder
Hi, My RH265 DVD/HDD Recorder is not registering blank DVD's to intitalise and is coming up with the unknown disk type. If I enter a disk and use the HDD Movie menu to Dubb a recorded program I only get the Change Inserted Disk. I have used quite a few different types of blank discs and get the same answer. Is there something specific that could be wrong, as I have dubbed many programs before wthout a problem. Thank you in advance :-)
The DVD needs to initialise the disk first. Come out of the HDD dubbing menu and press DVD on the remote. The blank recordable disk should be recognised and you should see Initialise disk? on the screen. Press Start and hey presto, you can now dub from the HDD Movie dubbing menu (as per the manual instructions).

To finelize a dvd on this player u burn everything then u go into the disk and u go to titlename and go ok then u can go to the start menu and the finalize part shows, u dont have to change the name of title u just go to that and click ok on the dvd part under hdd menu where u view dvds, only one title not all of them and it works. its not mentioned in the booklet so how they expect u to no that is beyound me, LG are well lets say not very helpful with there shotty products, i had a fridge that broke down less then 10 months after i got it where it was a frost free that froze in freezer which stop fridge part working, they tried to fix it over 2 yrs and then they gave up and said they wouldnt fix it, so i made a complaint to consummer affairs and they have been on there back since they sent a new repair guy out at christmast and its now may and no ones been back.they said if they cant fix the problem its just bad luck id never buy anything else of theres for the way they treated me

When using dvd-r unit must be in dvd mode to initialize. if using dvd+r it will do it in either dvd or hdd modes and in order for them to play on other units you have to finalize the disc by going into the disc menu and selecting disc and then finalize.

Maybe DVD RW, perform a full erase and initialise through Nero. If you can get the recorder to register the disk then try formatting or initialising with the recorder's in built tools.
Other than that could it be a region issue?
