Question about Toshiba RD-XS34 DVD Player/HDD Recorder

DVD-player/recorder broken - many files on HDD

Anyone know how the HDD is formated? Can I hook it onto a computer and read it somehow? Could try, but afraid trying may damage it, and if anyone done it before, why start from scrach?

Or is my only option to get another recorder and play off every file and record it on the new device?

Go to setup, underneath TVguide panel, press setup, press all HDD titles delete, do that than go back to same screen and do the HDD format.

Recorded pictures onto a DVD on my computer, they won't play on the ZV420mw8


I looked up your DVD player's model number online. It is not equiped to read picture files (.jpg, .bmp, etc.) You have to be carefull when you transfer pictures to a DVD on your computer. If you just burn them to the disc, most DVD players wont be able to read the information. Frequently you have to use a program like Microsoft Movie Maker to get them in the right format.

You may have to start over and use a DVD making program to make them a video and not just picture files.

Hope this helps! Don't forget to rate!

The manual does not specify the usb size max.

Copying a recorded file so I can edit it in iMovie on my computer please


I'm pretty sure that iMovie can cope with lots of different file formats. If you can burn the file onto a DVD and get the file off the DVD onto your computer's hard drive I think iMovie will cope with the rest. I know I have worked on Imovie in the past with DV files from my camera, but I'm sure that something like an mpeg file or a mp4 file will work too. What are the file options for recording from the HDD to disc?

How to copy recorded files from hard disk of TV (LG 47LY3DE) to Combo DMR-EZ47V


From what I've read, you can't. There is no way to copy from the HDD to a DVD, and the HDD in the TV can't be read by windows. Same if you add an external HDD. Thats the only downside I can see to this TV

PLAYING A CD-R ON THE DVD


this one sounds easy
ok lets look at the cd's-r your using are they brand new
and if brand new
then i would say that cd's and dvd's are coming out with new formats so that new cd's dvd's wont play in older equipment

now the other thing could be software and how the files movies or music was put onto the disc sometime software needs upgrade to support files on disc

is cd-r recognized by the dvd player as what i mean does it allow cd-r's to be played on the dvd player is this format supported

HDD Error


Since my last post, I have rectified the problem.....

1) I opened the unit to find a seagate HDD
2) I downloaded the Seatools in dos format and burned the image on to a cd rom
3)Taking out the HDD from my recorder,I hooked it up to another pc and ran the seatools disk @ bootup.
I tried for 2 hrs to repair the bloody thing ( 160 gb!) so i gave up and tried to erase the full HDD...which worked.
4) on my laptop i navigated to Pioneers site and found my recorder along with instructions and a zip file that contained 2 files.
5)After reading the destructions erm i mean instructions ;) I put the HDD back into the recorder and followed the instructions again..

Crossing my fingers i turned the recorder back on and to my amazement i was able to have more functionality..BUT... it says my HDD name error so I ran the disk again and wallah! all worked XDDDD

Here are the links

http://www.pioneer.co.uk/uk/content/support/support/update/DVR.html check if your model is there.

Problems with Daewoo DH-6111D HDD/ DVD recorder


I checked in the instruction manual and found out that I had not "finalised: the DVDs that I had recorded. So I reckon that this will solve my problem.

Will not record onto blank DVD's from HDD on LVW-5045 HDD-DVD 160 gb


Hi Barry - I too have a Lite-on and was initially over the moon with it. For the last year or so I have been unable to "read" disks and was just using it for the hard drive for recording - but this weekend my father in law had the exact same problem occur to his Lite-on and he bought a dvd cleaner (£5) - used it and it solved it - So I tried it and presto mine is reading and writing fine again - I was so chuffed - need to share this simple info just in case its a simple "dust" problem for anyone else that is having reading problems. DVD cleaner not just a CD cleaner as DVD cleaners have two brushes on it.
