DVD er Help

When I want to play a DVD in a LG RH7823W DVD recorder I get unknown disc displayed

Hi I have a LG RH7823W stand alone dvd HD recorder 160gb which won't play NTSC format discs. The error that is displayed is" Unknown disk please check disk again".
As this is supposed to be a multi-format player do you have any suggestions as to why this is.Here is a link to specs page for this model if it helps. http://au.lge.com/products/model/detail/video_dvdhddrecorder__rh7823w.jhtml#

Thanks in advance

Video : PAL I, B/G, I/ISECAM D/K, K1

That information is posted on LG Australia's
website that you hyperlinked to. It won't play
NTSC video because the region coding is
different - on PAL video is supported.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news :P

Hope this helps,

Justin

    oops, should be:

    It won't play NTSC video because the region coding is not built into that player - only PAL video is supported.

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.

My 2 1/2 year old LG dvd/vcr recorder will play some dvds but will not play others. It says unknown disc. I was told to try a lens cleaner; I bought one and the lens cleaner says unknown disc as well. ...


Hi,

Your DVD /VCR says unknown disc because the
dvd which you have inserted is not of the supported format by player.

If you insert unsupported formats only it will say as unknown disc.This is not related with disc cleaners.

Please insert the supported formats and it will play the disc.

Thanx

I have a lg dvd recorder model RH7823W. I have recorded something onto HDD and i want to burn it onto a DVD.


If you read the instructions, it's under "Dubbing" - Page 51. The one thing the printed manual fails to tell you is that you need to "finalise" the disc if you want to play it on any other player apart from another RH7823W - DOH! See page 23.

DVD PLAYS CD'S BUT WONT PLAY DVD'S


Aquarius0128 there are two things to consider here.. dvd's recorded on a computer need to be closed/finalized after you have recorded onto them in order to be used on a stand alone player.. they will play ok on original recorder because of the design of these machines finalizing prepares the structure of the disc so it can be recognised by other players as a dvd video disc.. you will usually see a 'finalize disc' option in your recording program

Second issue is this.. even if finalized an older (or even some modern) stand alone players will not recognise a recorded disc made on a computer or even if it can there are different formats DVD+R DVD-R and even DVD-RAM and DVD-RW (the two latter ones are rarely recognised outside a computer)
