Question about Samsung DVDR120 DVD Recorder

1 Answer

Dvd r120 After system error messages and refusals to record.(could still play) I did the official firmware update from Samsung. Now it still gives error message, but also seems to have changed regions. It was UK before but gone USA I think, .so am unable to play my recorded DVDs. Common problem it seems from forums - I tried the region hack but no good. Someone says I have to get the UK firmware from samsung first, but that link no longer works.- just the one that makes it USA. JUst want to make it work in simple english - help!" Thanks, Z

    when i try to record "system error is found" is displayed on tv screen and "wait" is displayed on dvd display and doesn't go away

    As soon as record is pressed, system error is found pops up and wait appears on the LED front panel display and remains there forever. Usually if i unplug the dvd recorder, then plug it back in the problem corrects itself. Not this time. HELP PLEASE!

I have had my ps3 80gb for a couple of years now but have never tried to play a blueray disc untill today. An on screen message states that I must renew the encryption key. Perform a system software update...


You will not be able to play some newer disc because of the technology embedded in them. The updates allow for those necessary files to be implemented into your system giving it the ability to play games and blu rays. Get your system updated.

Download the firmware from the playstation official website onto a usb

stick. Follow the instructions on the website at: www.playstation.com (the update will be at the bottom of the page, on the right side.)

Samsung DVD-R120, can I save what?s on a DVD-R that won?t play?


If it will not play either on the recorder it was recorded on or any other player, you need professional help retrieving the data. There are places where this can be done, but it will probably cost MANY times what the disc does.

Panasonic ES40v - Can't play DVD's - Incorrect region


I had the same trouble, also wouldn't play back discs that I recorded using it. The commonly listed reset of channel up and down at the same time was not meant for this model.
Below is the official solution that was sent to me by panasonic.
After using this method to reset my player it worked great. it was just like taking it out of the box for the first time.

Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for your inquiry, reguarding model DMR-ES40V.

Try this reset to fix the issue.

1. Unit power must be on.

2. Press [STOP] & [VHS > DVD] ON THE UNIT for over 5 seconds.

Thank you for contacting Panasonic.

Thank You,
Panasonic Consumer Support

SAMSUNG DVD R120 error EC:0207


I had exactly the same problem -- error message of "This disc can be neither played nor recorded. Please check the disk [EC:0207]" after the machine had been working fine for a year. I downloaded the latest firmware from the Samsung website, burned it to a CD-R disk (took three tries until the DVD Recorder recognized the disk -- worked when I used Rocio CD Creater software), then loaded the firmware updates to the DVD Recorder. On the Samsung website you can retrive the firmware update instructions as well. I had to perform the firmware upgrade several times until it successfully updated both the system firmware as well as the disk firmware. After successfully updating both, the Recorder now recognizes the DVD-R disks and I was able to resume recording. I have however, noted some choppiness with the playback of the newly recorded disks. Other than that, the firmware upgrade successfully resolved the problem.
