Question about DVD & Blu-Ray Players

1 Answer

I have a LiteOn cd/dvd recorder (no hard drive, records right onto the disk). It has, after several years of light use, just become unable to eject a disk. Is there some workaround like the old paper clip trick for floppy disks?

    Well, I wouldn't be surprised if my needle is somewhere in that haystack, and I didn't know about the site before, so thanks for your help.

    I'll keep looking, the most helpful thing I've seen there so far looks like I need to take the machine apart and find out what's jamming the disk tray/cup holder. I'll give that a try in a few days.

Liteon dvd recorder lvw1101 starts reading the dvd then says it preparing the disc then it ejects it


The Optical head unit is faulty. The disc is not being read by the head unit laser and so conveys a wrong message which ejects the cd.
Replace the optical head unit assembly but with the correct procedure.

How to transfer Panasonic DMR-E80H recorded DVDs to computer


I have to agree with XELIAM regarding finishing the disk, under the DVD "FUNCTIONS" selection from the remote. I also use the SLYSOFT products to transfer my videos to what ever other mode of video I wish to have, whether iPOD (MP4), or DIVX (AVI) or loads of other options. Slysoft makes a GREAT product

Unable to record


For several months I had a similar problem which was resolved using a cleaning disk. Finally that didn't help. I opened up the DVD recorder - removed a guard to prevent you from looking directly at the laser lens. I gently cleaned the lens with 91% alcohol on a cotton swab and now it records fine!!!!

A problem with a disk after inicjalizing it in windows


I have swapped hard drives in my DMR-EH55 several times when I was trying to see if a larger hard drive would give me more recording time. After several days of playing around I was unable to increase it beyond 92 hours. Anyways, back to your question, I have lost the contents of my hard drive twice from swapping around and hooking up to my computer to try and copy contents, so in my experience I don't think you will be successful. Since this is an older post, perhaps you were and if so, please post solution.

PS - firmware update image is available from Panasonic's website if your unit is asking for lLD FVU

Will not record onto blank DVD's from HDD on LVW-5045 HDD-DVD 160 gb


Hi Barry - I too have a Lite-on and was initially over the moon with it. For the last year or so I have been unable to "read" disks and was just using it for the hard drive for recording - but this weekend my father in law had the exact same problem occur to his Lite-on and he bought a dvd cleaner (£5) - used it and it solved it - So I tried it and presto mine is reading and writing fine again - I was so chuffed - need to share this simple info just in case its a simple "dust" problem for anyone else that is having reading problems. DVD cleaner not just a CD cleaner as DVD cleaners have two brushes on it.
