Hi Sir,

Make sure that your UDMA hard-drive controller is using an 80-wire, 40-pin cable. Contact your UDMA hard-drive controller manufacturer. If the issue is not resolved, go to the next step.

Also make sure that the settings in your BIOS are not configured to force faster UDMA modes.

NOTE: Change BIOS settings with caution. Read your computer's documentation regarding changing any BIOS settings.

If the issue is not resolved, go to the next step. Turn off the Enable Write Caching On The Disk feature:

(NOTE: If you turn off the Enable Write Caching On The Disk feature, your hard drive performance may decrease.)

In Windows Explorer, right-click your hard disk and click Properties.

Click the Hardware tab.

Click the hard drive and then click Properties.

Click the Policies tab.

Click to clear the Enable Write Caching On The Disk checkbox and click OK twice.

Repeat these for each hard disk installed in your computer

Hi,

Did you format the disc with the unit or with a PC?

My Philips DVD Recorder does not accept a DVD disc shows no disk. The DVD disc does not revolve. A CD disc revolves but shows junknown


Could be that you are using the wrong type of DVD ? There are two formats DVD+R, DVD+RW etc and DVD-R, DVD-RW etc. Some machines are capable of using either, others can use one of the two formats.
My other suggestion is that some machines are picky about which manufacturer's DVDs they will use.

Why won't the DVD-RW disks FORMAT? I've seen others with the same problem with formatting multiple types of disks... Please help.


If you are using a Sylvania DV220SL8 DVD Player \ VCR combo (which this question is posted under the heading of) there is a very simple reason why you can't format DVD-RW disks. DVD Players can't do that. You need a DVD Recorder to format DVD's.

This applies to all comments under this heading as well. You can not record if the unit you're using does not have that capability. And this unit does not have it. You can record with the VHS VCR, but the DVD Player is just that... A Player. It's not a Recorder.

It will still play DVDs and videos, and record from one to the other, but you won't be able to record from TV onto either format now. (I know: I've got one!)

No record dvd (no formated disk)


When you put in a new disk it will ask you to format, yes or no. Click yes and wait. Use only +R or +RW's. Sony is best. Maybe its the disks you are using. This machine is REALLY PICKY!

DVD created on my Samsung R155 won't play on other playes or PC


check the output formats the machine is writing to disk and then compare the players formats they are being used in
could be your disk type ie format type - Minus (-) or Plus (+)

One disk is better for data and the other is better for DVD video

Dvd do not record


The unit is saying that its an "Un-format disc" problem. Is this the only error code you are getting? Also, what types of DVDs are being used? As in, DVD-R DVD-RW DVD+R DVD-RW and what speeds? 1x 2x 4x 8x 16x?

Rca drc8295n not recording to disc


The DRC8285N model is a great little machine, however, it will only record to DVD+R 8x disks maximum. If you are trying to record to a 16x, you will not be successful. See page 2 of your manual, and RCA service confirmed it. You can use 2.4x, 4x and 8x only. That eliminates the newer 16x format.

Cannot play this disc


The DVD-R130 can only record to DVD-R and DVD-RW disks - it cannot identify blank DVD+R and DVD+RW disks. For recorded DVD disks, the player will play finalised DVD+R/+RW disks without any problem.
