Question about GoVideo Go Video DVD/VCR Combo

1 Answer

What do I use media

Hello,
I have a VR4940 DVD/VCR COMBO. It came with LG 1-4x 4.7gb single sided blank dvd-r. After I use them I didn't burn anything for quite a while. When I started to burn again it was nearly impossible to find 1- 4x blank dvd-r. I found a few and have 5 0r 6 left, but can not find any more. I wrote to the company where I purchase other media and they recommened Taiyo Yuden Value Line DVD-R or Ritek Silver Shiney 8x media. I am leaning towards the Ritek because it says 1-8x . I have used Taiyo CD-R and love the quality of the Taiyo but I can only get them in 100 cake pack or more , which if they don't work , the DVD's I mean, then I'm stuck with them.

Anyway I also downloaded from the site a firmware update for this dvd/vcr combo but have never installed because I'm not sure what they will change.
If I install the firmware update will I be able for sure to use 1-8x. And or will I not be able to use the 1-4x I have left. Or will installing the upgrade just mess everything up so bad I won't be able to burn at all.

Have tried everywhere for answers -- need help

Upgrading the firmware is always a good idea. Usually the instructions on the site are clear but they may also have a telephone number to ring to ask for the firmware upgrade on a disk.

Upgrades are there to remove the inevitable bugs that exist when a machine is released onto the market. there may be several upgrades during the life of the recorder.

Burning CD


hello,

I gues that your burner is combo and only burn cd-r not DVD-R. Maybe its only a DVD REader and cannot burn to blank DVD. Try to see the Rom Specification of the DEll for more information.
