Unreadable disk error

At=fter transferring some home videos to DVD on a LiteOn lvw-5101, I suddenly got an UNREADABLE DISK - disk error. The disk was not yet finalized but now will not play at all or even show a menu. Is there a way to recover the footage that was already on this damaged disk? Thanks for your help.

The laser in 5101 could be defective or maybe just dirty.Try cleaning with a commercial cleaning disc,put a drop of rubbing alcohol on cleaning brushes.When this happens sometimes it will still be a usable disc but not always.Try putting in another dvd player or recorder or your PC if it plays dvds,the readers in PC are of a better quality and will often read discs that those cheap dvd readers can't.
R+ or R- discs need to finalized after recording RW+and RW- discs do not.It is always a good policy to finalze the second your recording is finished otherwise it may not play in other players or recorders.
When you make a recording in a dvd recorder an it doensn't recognize the disc it just recorded it quite often has a defective laser.This particular model has been plagued with early laser failure.

Liteon DVD Player LVW-5115GHC+ Disk Tray stuck


The tray is either broken, or off track. You may be able to get it back on track by opening the cover and checking it out, but unplug it first, and only try this if warrantee is over and you're feeling brave...

After formatting the disk, it reads that it is an invalid disk.


I have a Liteon LVW-1107. It is a very tempramental machine. It tends to prefer +R or +RW disks. Will record on -Rs but may fail with them.
On occasion when I insert a store bought DVD movie I will get an
invalid disk warning. The machine seems to get confused.

What I do is pull the power cord and let it set a few minutes.
Give it a little time to reset. Sometimes you have to do this a couple times. It has always worked for me. I hope it will work for you.

Good luck. This is not a top of the line machine.

DVD Recoder trouble


I have the LVW 5005 and was having a similar problem. Unplugged it tore it apart (looking if anything looked physically wrong) plugged it back in and it worked (and still is). Try unplugging it, letting is sit for 1/2 hour and plugging it back in. Might get lucky.

Concerning a Liteon LVW-1107.
I have had this same problem many times up until I decided that my machine tends to prefer +R or +RW disks. I have had no problems with +R or +RW disks.

( If I record something on a +RW disk and decide I want to copy it to -Rs I will copy the files to the hard drive and then reburn to
-Rs using Nero.)

Once you have had the disk in the machine and it will not play for whatever reason you might just as well throw it away and get a new disk and start over.

You may need to pull the power cord and let the machine reset on occasion also.

Realize I am telling you what works for me.
It may or may not work for you.
I hope it does.
