Question about Samsung DVD-VR320 DVD Recorder/VCR
Hi there, we currently have two issues with the above unit.
When trying to record on a DVD that may have other material currently recorded on it, the following message often appears:
"The disc cannot be played or recorded.."
The disc then needs to be reformatted to be able to be used again, thus losing any currently recorded material while its being reformatted. There seems to be no corellation between how many times the disc has been used before and this problem occuring. Quite often the disc is fresh out of the packet and has only been used once!
This is the second issue: When a programme is being instantly recorded (not timer recorded), after the recording is finished or if the recording is stopped, a "System Error" message appears, asking for the player to be turned off and then on again to fix the problem. The recorded material is of course lost when this happens.
The unit was purchased and is used in Australia and is no longer under warranty. We have heard that it may be a problem with the laser and if so, may not be worth fixing at all, dut to cost of parts. Is there any advice you can give?
I once did something like this:
On a PC using nero software, 'import' the unfinished session. It should then prompt to 'finalise' that session.

See if a shop will clean the optical assembly for you at a reasonable cost. Also, if you have the "finalization" feature turned off, this will cause a disc to show that message...accordianman
