My hard drive is full and I've been trying to put my shows together to make one disk for the same show. I keep buying disks to put them on a disk and either it tells me the format is wrong or it tries to erase a brand new disk.I read somewhere that the disks that are made today are too fast for this recorder I'm trying to use. And if I do start to make a disk when I try to finalize the disk. It spits it out and ruined the disk because now it tells you invalid disk. I always loved my Lite On but now I'm so frustrated. Now I have to unplug it all the time because it gets stuck and won't do anything. Is there anyway to buy disks. That are compatable with my recorder. Maybe older versions of disks.

1) pass the Disk cleaner buy to some radio schack, and test it 2) test the cable in another device, and determine if faulty or not. 3) if not clean the terminal from DVD VS TV with c.cleaner 4) otherwise the Syscom inside and another associates circuit is faulty such like record ampl. go to the repair shop for fix it. God bless you
My LG DVD recorder was unreliable when recording TV broadcasts to "standard" DVD disks. Frequently it would begin recording a show and then stop with a copyright error message during some commercial. I rarely got a complete show. Very frustrating!
Solution: Buy some DVD-RAM disks and this machine will become totally reliable. They are hard to find and a little more expensive than +RW or -RW. Because of the copyright programming on this machine only DVD-RAM disks will work in VR (Video Recorder) mode.
open up the unit and remove the hard disk. If you have a desktop, connect the drive like you would any other hard disk. If the drive does NOT show up under My Compujter, then the format is proprietary, and all you can do is back up the drive with a program like Acronis True Image (you must have more free space on your hard disk than the DVR's drive size...if the DVR has a 500G hard disk, you need 500G of free space on your desktop drive). If the drive DOES show up with a drive letter under Computer, then create a directory on the C drive and simply drag and drop all the files from the DVR hard disk (E: or whatever it makes itself) to this folder. The files may still be in a proprietary format and unplayable though. If you are trying to play the files on the computer, I suggest using VLC player. It plays almost everything in the universe.
Those circles are there as a sign that the unit has not finished loading the indicator - it's a wait signal. This happens because the processor no longer recognizes the indicator for the shows you recorded so yes, this is a big defect.
The unit is repairable - you will have to replace the hard drive and reprogram the unit - but this is a long and costly procedure. It will be cheaper just to buy a new one.
The hard disk hasn't been recognized in Windows because the JVC runs Linux so the drive was formatted in EXT3 which Windows can't read.
Simple fix to recover all your data: connect the disk back to the pc and boot from a Linux Live-CD like http://pclinuxos.com/ In there all you have to do is to copy all the content of the disk to your local disk (PCLinuxOS can read and write securely on NTFS/Windows disks). Or you could just burn them to some dvd's. For the rest: 1 - on the CS pins; 2 - no.
Hi. Sounds like you are maxing out your recording space on your disc.1:39 sounds like the capacity of a single layer DVD-RW. You can confirm this by putting the disc into a computer and checking the "properties" of the DVD. Go into "My computer" [ldouble click], highlight DVD drive [rightclick] then select "properties"[left click]. the pie chart will show you graphically space remainig on the disc
I did try removing the Hard Disk from the recorder and did a diagnostic and fix-disk using Ontrack software. Ontrack showed no structural and physical defects on the hard disk. I replaced the hard disk in the recorded and guess what! Please wait, please wait, please wait, please wait...................................
