Question about Lite On LVC-9016G DVD Recorder/VCR
No matter what DVD disc I use, the recorder says "invalid disc" or just "no disc". I tried running an opti disc lens cleaner and it won't even run that - just gives me the same "invalid" or "no disc" reading. Any suggestions other than replace the unit?
I had a problem with a Lite-On that had been working fine then stopped reading any disc--sometimes it would go through the motions of recording if a disc was in and a timed recording was due to start. Also had "Invalid Disc" msgs. After recording it would not read the disc. I tried a Philips DVD/CD disc cleaner with no luck. A google search led me to find the a dirty laser would cause this. I removed the cover and with a clean lint free cloth I used rubbing alcohol to clean it and it has worked fine since. While I had the cover off I took the unit to my garage and used an air compressor to blow all the dust out of the unit and cleaned the laser again just in case. That was about 6 weeks ago and it works fine. My unit has a cooling fan that I think contributed to the dust problem.

I have successfully made hundreds of play-able DVDs from my home video using this Liteon LVC9016G. Overall I like this machine although it is very quirky.
In my experience the only DVD that can work is SONY DVD+R 120min / 4.7GB. NOTHING ELSE WILL WORK RIGHT. I have used some DVD-R: You can record on it since everything appears to work. The got-ya is you cannot play it at all. I am sick of this because I have re-used some tape but ended up with useless DVDs! Take my word for it, I have tried many media like Maxwell or Verbatin. These "other brands" are fine on the computer but not on this machine. I don't know what this machine can detect and see the differences in the media. Give this media a try.
