Removable devices that act as readers, storage, or burners normally are given random letters starting with the lowest letter available. It sounds like your computer is not recognizing the drive.

Solution:

Go to Start>Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Computer Management. From this point, Id like you to find your Drive. Should be under the "Other Devices" area, "Disk Drives", or "Floppy Disk Drives". Once found, please right click and go to Properties. I want you to "Uninstall" the driver for your floppy. After this, delete anything that came with the software(Not your personals, of course). Finally, reinstall your drivers for the drive and see if that helped. please message me if it does not.

Why can't my Panasonic DVD recorder read my portable harddrive? I want the DVD record to read the harddrive?


hi anonymous, it may well be that you need to change settings on your DVD Recorder and/or on your TV. On my LG 42" TV I need to select the input mode ie. Movie, USB, music etc, as necessary. Maybe your DVD Recorder or TV can't handle the file format on you Portable Drive, check the manufacturer specs.

Dvd recorder won't play disc


your recorder will normally give you 5 changes at different regions, and on the last region change that is the one that it stays on, although if you you have never changed the region go to> my computer>right click on your dvd drive>properties and on the hardware tab, your hard drive and dvd drive will show, highlight your dvd drive and click properties and click the dvd regions tab and look at the region to see wot its set at, if you still have 5 changes, it should be set at your region one, if there are no changes left you need to search and download a region free dvd programme to allow any region dvd to be played programme

Our LG RH397d/rh399d DVD / Hard drive recoreder will only turn on and display the Hallo message, and you can hear a clicking sound from in side. I have remove the power cord no change .


Your DVD drive is having a problem. When this recorder starts, it checks the DVD drive for correctness. If incase your DVD drive is has problem in the ejecting mechanism then this will prevent your HDD from working correctly. Take the player to service center and fix the drive
