Question about iLO DVDR04
I have had my IlO for several years. the only writable disk it will take is Maxell. I have gone through several brand of writtable DVDs Does any one else have this problem? Or am I going to have to put all these Cases of DVDss on ebay? I have had this problem of finding compatible disks since the day I brought it home.
Your dvd writer is bad, because there is not enough air in side the box. it over heated, the fan inside is not big enough. you are one of the lucky ones, if yours even lasted a year. i had 4 go bad on me in six mouths returned to walmart and replaced them.open up your box and unplug the strap from the player and the power line from the back of the dvd recorder. if you have a computor the power and strap hook up the same.way. what you need to do, is order a dvd recorder on- line,a 8 speed and 20 speed will not work. it has to be a 16 speed dvd recorder.and a dual layer chould help. i got mine from sams it was a 16 speed LG internal super multi dvd/cd rewriter, but i think all they carry now is a 20 speed.if you get one, i would just leave the old one in ilo. and do a little carving on the back of the ilo caseing to run the strap and power cord through and ontop of the ilo. just sit the new recorder on top of the ilo it may not look good sitting there but it will last a lot longer that way i went through about 200 different brands of dvds before i found out what was wrong with mine good luck i hope you get it fixed. e-mail me if you have any quistens.thanks ronpar

I noted an earlier solution that involved replacement of the DVD writer drive which I agree with. Just wanted to give you another tested alternative for a replacement drive.
LITEON 22x Internal DVD / CD Writer drive from WalMart for $39 bucks. (bar code is 44149 00406). Suppose you could install it external as previously suggested (I know several speak of lots of heat in these units but I have never had these problems although I bought mine when ILO discontinued these so perhaps they resolved in later models?) With some work, it will fit inside and look just like the original. Bit of an art getting everything to fit but works great. Make sure you set new drive to MASTER as it comes as slave in box.
BTW this drive works in both the DVDRH04 the the DVDR04 as I have both and replaced both drives... one because it did not always close the DVD tray and the other one for only creating DVD's it could read (no other player could read them). New drives work great on both models, all speeds playing, recording and initializing/finalizing. Hope this helps!
