Question about Samsung DVD-VR330 VCR and DVD Recorder

DVD will not load/format new disk

The DVD reader/writer works only when playing a disk. When a new disk is inserted it normaly takes a minute or so to load (probably also formating) then the disk is ready to record. Now when a new disk is inserted it says "load" for several minutes and then says the disk is bad. I opened the unit, then the disk player and cleaned the lense although I could see nothing on it. After re-assembly it worked the same, I beleive the disk unit needs to be replaced but cannot find a place to buy it. The only label says "loader B1.8z". I'd appreciate any help. Thanks, Russ My Samsung DVD-VR330 is not that old (1 1/2 years). Recently it won't load disks reliably. Most of the time it will show "Load" for a long time and then open the tray along with the message "This disk cannot be played." The disks are clean. I have tried new disks, and pre-recorded disks with the same result. Is something wore out, already?

    Having much the same problem among other things.Says "load" for ages then says disk cannot be played. Sometimes says "system error ..." and these are new DVD-rw disks (1x-16x)

    I've been using DVD-R discs and just recently the unit won't recognize them. When I put a disc in it says it is loading for several minutes then a blue screen comes up say CAN'T READ DISC CHECK DISC. It does'nt matter if I'm trying to record or put in a disc that has been recorded. It will play pre-recorded discs but no others.

    when trying to record on new dvd-rw, the recorder starts formatting the new dvd, then in middle of formating it sends an error message that an error has been recognized and it ejects the dvd

I've had the same problem of the unit ejecting my blank DVD. However it was pointed out that the DVD's I'd bought were DVD+RW - I didn't know there were different types so I'm going to buy some DVD-RW but I'm worried having read your comments that it still won't work!!

I have got exactly the same problem. Thought I had found some discs that worked as the first one formatted, since then all have come up with that crappy error protection message. Samsung really should sort this out.

Does your computer _READ_ any CD disks?

If not, then your NEC writer has "failed" -- spend $40 to buy a new CD/DVD Dual-Layer reader/writer.

My Toshiba DVD/ROM SD M1502 will play CDs but does not see DVDs. When I click on the drive icon in My Computer it says that its not in a format that it can read. I've tried looking for drivers and have...


Try the DVD disk in some other computer, to ensure that the disk itself is OK.
Try some other "known-good" DVD-disk in your Toshiba SD M1502 drive.

Or, spend $40 and purchase a brand-new, CD/DVD reader/writer, to replace the faulty device.

HI when i put disk in cd rom drive the computer only reads for about 3 seconds and then the message says insert a disk..my son has been burning a lot of disks lateluy and not sure why it broke so soon,only...


Loading new device-drivers will not help.
In the first few seconds, the drive is trying to read the first few blocks of data from the media, to see if it is a "data" or "music" or "blank" CD. If nothing can be read (dead laser?) then you get the "insert a disk" message.

> do I need a new unit?

Yes; spend $40 to buy a new CD/DVD reader/writer.

I tried to reload the SD memory with the original DVD Nokia -Route 66. The SD has been reformatted but reloading does not work. Program cannot find SD memory.


Hi, this comes very late - just surfed inn - but may be help to someone. To reload R66 from your cd/dvd don't download it, follow these steps in stead:
1. Insert the memory card into the memory card reader/writer.
2. Format your memory card in FAT (not FAT32).
3. Insert the CD/DVD into the DVD drive. Select 'Browse Contents' in opened Route66 window.
4. Select and open 'MemoryImage'
5. Select the folder 'R66' and copy it to the formatted memory card.
6. Remove the memory card from the memory card reader/writer and insert it into the Nokia 330 device.

Now it should work, at least worked for me.

Start "Disk Utility" and "repair disk permissions on all disks.  Restart the Mac and it should fix.   I don't believe one ever needs to load a driver on a Mac for any card reader.   It should work as plug and play.
Good luck.
