Question about JVC DR-MH30S DVD Recorder

Replacement dvd reader/writer

Hi, I appear to be having similar problems to other owners of JVC recorders in that it has got very picky on what it will play. It records to hard drive and disc OK and will reply both but should I try to play a pre-recorded dics chances are it will endlessly read and nothing else. I've stripped the cover off and removed the dvd drive unit to inspect and clean the lens. I've also checked the capacitors etc. for swelling and leakage and all look good. Having done all this the problem remains. I'm thinking that the dvd drive unit may be faulty and need your advice. the drive unit fitted is a GDA-4120B Is there an alternative drive unit I can fit without too much trouble?
Regards Calvin
PS I live in the UK so the system is PAL

    Hi all, Back to the drawing board. Yes, it was true that after stripping and cleaning the lens the recorder worked perfectly but having left it plugged in and on standby overnight the problem has returned. I left the machine uplugged for a day and "hey presto"!!! it's working again. It seems to me that while left in standby mode something is breaking down thus causing the problem. As I said, I've already checked all the capacitors I can see and all look good. Any ideas someone?

    I tired to clean the lens, but it did not help. Found a perfect replacement at my local tech store. Product was a DVD+RW SONY 20X IDE. Just put it back in the JVC DVD case and that was it. Paid $33 including local sales tax. Saw it on e-bay for the same price.

I also tried a Sony DRU-842A and it works perfectly on the JVC DR-MV1SDR as a replacement of the GDA-4120B.

To others with the same problem as i "Had"!!!
the problem was solved by once again strippng the dvd drive down and cleaning the lens. This time using more pressure than before. It would seem that the light clean I gave it before did not fully remove the dirt/grease film that had accumulated on the lens. By adding more pressure to the cleaner soaked cotton bud this did the trick.
After cleaning make sure no fluff remains. This can happen when using a cotton bud as I did.

My nero rw cd burner is not working it found lack of cd recorder to erase rw disk, how to solve this problem


Open "My Computer".
Is the CD-writer shown as a device?
If not, then the Nero software cannot find the "not-attached" CD-recorder device.

Turn the computer off. Remove the power-cord.
Check the "power" and "data" connections to the CD-recorder.

If all else fails, spend $40 to buy a replacement CD/DVD reader/writer.

Playback on recorded disk


The DVD has burned incorrectly and the data has likely corrupted somewhat to the point where the DVD player/writer can't read it. You may be able to watch it on your computer with a DVD drive. Try saving it to your computer, then erasing the disc and trying to record something short to it and play it back - if it plays back, it's likely to have been a recording problem, however, if you get the same problem, it may be a dodgy disc, a faulty DVD player/writer, or a format problem. Try this, in order left to right. Copy DVD to PC -> Erase DVD -> Record on DVD from TV -> Play back If plays back Erase DVD -> Continue as normal If not Buy DVD-RW (emphasis on the minus) -> Try using that If that works continue as normal, otherwise... Return the DVD player/writer under warranty for repair/replacement.

It wont recognize a recordable DVD. i tried both the R and the -R


Be sure that your hardware is a CD/DVD writer,
not just a "combo" drive (CD-reader/writer-and-DVD-reader).

Try a different brand/manufacturer of recordable media.

You may need to update the "firmware" (software residing inside the writer) to allow it to recognize "newer" blank disks.

Note that "blank" disks have some data recorded on them, to identify the manufacturer and composition and capabilities of the media (2X? 4X? 8X?). So, the values on "new" disks may not be allowable by "old' firmware inside the writer.

My cd dvd-rom can't read cd's or burn cd's


If it is working correctly, it should read both CD and DVD disks.

If you have a "combo" drive (DVD-reader and CD reader/writer), it should burn CD disks.

If it is not working correctly, spend $40 to buy a replacement CD/DVD reader/writer.

You've got an expensive unit (see below for Press Release), with a built-in CD/DVD reader/writer.
Given that your unit could be six years old, it's possible that the reader/writer has "died".

It seems to be a "stand-alone" unit -- not something that requires either Mac OSx or Windows XP/Vista/7 to operate.

I'm guessing that _ANY_ IDE (not 'SATA') HP-brand reader/writer, provided that it has a "LightScribe" capability, could be purchased, and could be inserted to replace the "dead" reader/writer. For about $100, it's worthwhile to try this "substitution" to revive your unit.

Replacement DVD drive for a JVC-SR-DVM600


Hi,
There are three things you can do that will eventually give you a working solution. Depending on the level of problem. Start with 1 progress to 3 until it works.
1. Use a cleaning disc. (one that use an alcohol based liquid)
2. If the cleaning disc does not solve it, you can use an ear bud, with some iso-propyl alcohol to clean the DVD lens on the drive directly. (you have to open the player and the drive)
3. The guaranteed working solution is to replace the DVD drive inside the player. This is quite a simple process, as most players use a standard IDE DVD-ROM or DVD writer.
You simply remove the face plate, (apply power to the drive, and press eject first) the tray will open. Unclip the tray face, and then with the tray open you can unclip the plastic face plate too.
Remove the old drive, and fit the new drive by reversing the removal procedure.
Once everything is assembled you should be able to watch DVD's again. If you can't find a cheap DVD drive locally, try ebay.
I have done this on over 50 players for my clients in the past. I use LG DVD roms and DVD writers for the DVD recorders, irrespective of brand.
Let me know how it goes.

Transfer movie from mini tape to computer - JVC.....well, hello i found that people have the same problem i do i;ve got this JVC digital camera GR-D770U...and unfirtunately i don't have a software disc...


You can download user manual in PDF format from this link:
http://safemanuals.com/user-guide-instructions-owner-manual/JVC/GR-D770U-_E
but that's not a point. The point is that you can use any video editing software (with no driver), that accepts capture mode starting from standard Windows Movie Maker for beginners to CyberLink PowerDirector, Ulead DVD MovieFactory or similar. This can be made by plugging your camcorder to PC via USB or FireWire (iLink, IEEE1394). Of course you can record to Digital Video Unit Equipment (DVD recorder) if you have one. Good luck!
