This problem of yours just need to be isolated so we can get to the final fix, as I check the some information about your Recorder I may suggest you to get a DVD-RW instead of a plain DVD-R disc. Can you please inform me also if you that player/recorder can read a DVD with movie or files inside it.
Hope it helps........

    If you need to, you can reset the Recorder to all its factory
    settings. Select ‘‘Set’’ icon then press ENTER.

If you think the unit is not prerforming as it should,
Check your warranty information.

If you are still covered under warranty (usually 12 months from purchase), contact the manufacturers (listed in the booklet), and return the unit according to their policy.

You should not be charged for repairs/ replacement, but could be billed for postage.
Make sure you use recorded/ signed for delivery to prevent loss /damage issues.

I hope this resolves the problem
Thanks,

You first check what kinda of media you are using. Is it a +or- dvd-r. Your problem most likely is in the fact that the unit you are using only likes specific disk's. make sure its a 8x dvd+r.

    also if by format you mean erase everything off a previously recorded dvd. Thats not how a dvd-R works, Thats how dvd-RW works. If the dvd has already been burned onto once then it can no longer be burned onto. Unless it is a multi-session but that is not the case here.

    So what id like you to do so i can help solve your problem. Is get a brand new DVD+R and try to record to it. If it fully records the unit is fine. Which means you just need to go DVD+RW disks from your local computer store. Those are the type of media which your recorder will be able to format. Note* that they only should need to be formatted after having data "Burned" onto the DVD+RW. Let me know how the dvd test burn goes. So i can further assist you with your problem


    Thanks

    monk3ybidzness Jun 16, 2008

    Since already spent time and money on different DVD's (check if one of them disc's is 8x just to be sure) and the unit is NOT reading the media (as it supposed to)

    If it is still in warranty, Service or Return or Replacement from the manufacturer.

First try a different brand DVD-R as that is a common issue as not all rewritable discs work in all burners.
Keep me posted as I will list some other common solutions to this problem,
Thanks,

    Try a different brand DVD+R that is 8x.

  • Lee A.
    Lee A. Jun 16, 2008

    As far as I know there is no reset. The unit most likely either dirty or broke. First try a DVD Lens cleanr. If that doesn't work either have it serviced or a better solution would be to just relace it if the unit is out of warranty.
    Thanks and good luck,
    Lee

    Lee A. Jun 16, 2008

    marked, if you would have read or researched the item your suppose use DVD+R that are 8x.
    Good luck,

When i put a dvd in my hitachi htdk185uk it says unknown disc what does this mean


Either a DVD with the wrong region code has been loaded, and your player doesn't recognise it, or you have inserted a disc which is either rewritable (or an incompatible format for your player), a blank DVD or CD, or the disc has not been finalised in a DVD recorder. It depends on the disc(s) you have, whether they are region coded or those using a compatible playback format (finalised DVD-Rs are the best as far as burned copies go).

Examples of incompatible formats for your player may include;
DVD-ROMs
DVD-RAMs (which are the wrong version/speed for your unit)
Mini-DVDs/CDs
CD-RWs
DVDs with a different region code to your player or rewritable discs

* When using shop-bought DVDs, including those purchased online, make sure their region code matches your player.

What kind of blank DVDs do I use to copy an old VHS video tape to the DVD? I have the Sony RDR-VX530. When I put a DVD in, I get an Error message saying that I have the wrong DVD.


According to page 30 of the operation manual, the following information may help;

DISCS THAT CAN BE USED IN THIS RECORDER:

4x-speed or slower DVD+RWs
2x-speed or slower DVD-RWs (version 1.1, 1.1 with CPRM) (Content Protection for Recordable Media)
4x-speed or slower DVD-RWs (version 1.2, 1.2 with CPRM)
16x-speed or slower DVD+Rs
16x-speed or slower DVD-Rs (version 2.0, 2.0 with CPRM, version 2.1, 2.1 with CPRM)
2.4x-speed DVD+R DL (dual layer) discs
(when using DVD+R DL discs, see the instructions supplied with them prior to use)
4x-speed or slower DVD-R DL (dual layer) discs

DISCS THAT CANNOT BE RECORDED ON:

DVD-RWs (version 1.0)
DVD+RWs that are not 2.4x-speed compatible
8 cm discs (mini-DVDs)
DVD-RAM (any speed/any version)
DVD-R DL (dual layer) discs in VR mode

A free pdf copy of the manual for this model can be downloaded online.

Hopefully that provides some insight to your question.

The dvd wont initialize blanc discs so that i can record with it.i have used different disc as well


Do you mean it won't format/initialize the disc? Alternative possible problem, when you put in a disc, does it not recognize that a blank disc is in the unit? Only DVD-RAM discs need formatting. DVD-RW discs need to be initialized. DVD-R disc do not need either formatting or initializing. (This unit does not write to DVD+R or DVD+RW discs.)

In the case of DVD-RW discs that can't be initialized. Check if this has already been done (or if you need to unfinalize the disc).

If the new disc is not being recognized as a blank disc, the recorder may not be recognizing the disc (dirt, scratches or manufacturing issue) or the recorder is not focusing on the disc properly. In the first case, clean the disc or try a different type of disc (Samsung claims that their discs will be most compatible). In the second case, the unit may need service.

I hope this helps.

Can anybody help me, I purchased a Samsung dvd recorder model dvdvr350m, since purchasing the unit it will not recognize that it has recordable dvd's in it (dvd-rw),it tells me no disc inserted please...


Did the sales guy use the same DVD-RW that you did? Maybe the brand you are using is not of good quality and can not be recognized by the recorder. If he did not use the same disc did you notice if he used DVD-RW or DVD+RW? Some DVD-Recorders only recognize one or the other but this is kind of rare these days. I recommend verbatim brand discs. They should be available for sale at any shop. If you want the ultimate in quality DVDs then go with Taiyo Yuden. This Japanese brand invented recordable media and in addition to that they are obsessed with quality. www.supermediastore.com is always where I get my discs.

Using up to 16x disks


This units DVD drive is only able to spin at a max of 8x on DVD-Rs and max of 2x on DVD-RWs. Also, this unit is a - only recorder. This means if it is a +, it's not going to work.
Since the unit is a DVD-R 4x max recorder, the unit will need to have it's firmware upgraded. This will only help to record to a DVD-R 8x. You can purchase this upgrade with the manufacture of the unit. Call the 1-800 number listed in your manual and press 3. They will walk you thru the steps to find out which upgrade is needed.
