    SAMSUNG DVD-SH855M RECORDER WILL NOT ACCEPT BLANK MEMOREX DVD+R DL (DUAL LAYER) 8.5GB DISKS. IT REJECTS THEM AT THE AUTOMATIC FORMAT STAGE. THE MANUAL STATES THAT THE DEVICE WILL RECORD TO DUAL LAYER DISCS.

    I HAVE HAD THE RECORDER LESS THAN A MONTH AND THE SHOP WHER I BOUGHT IT IS 200 MILES AWAY IN ENGLAND WHEREAS I AM OFF-SHORE.

  • banyard Jun 18, 2008

    WHAT MAKE OF BLANK DUAL LAYER / DOUBLE LAYER DISK WOULD YOU SUGGEST AS COMPATIBLE WITH THE SAMSUNG DVD-SH855M? IT WILL TAKE (ACCORDING TO THE MANUAL) BOTH DVD-R/RW & DVD+R/RW.

Hi-

How about other brands? compatibility is one thing that technology can not control, technology has its limitations. try using a different blank dvd+r DL because there might be a compatibility issue with these thing or upgrade may be either needed on the software or hardware firmware update for it to work. keep me posted if you have questions. thanks!

    according to CNET testing these DL(double layered) disks are NOT compatible with a slew of readers.

    methinks you need another dvd disk, or an upgrade to your Samsung player

Samsung DVD-VR330 unit will not accept a brand new blank DVD-RW disc---machine says 'load' for 20 seconds, before saying 'open', which it does.


The DVD-RW will work at random, some brands will wok better than others. Memprex, Sony, Maxell are 3 I can use sometimes. Once the disk is accepted it must be formatted. Click that and if accepted, first do a record for say 2 minutes to see if ti works.

If it works don't take it out until you're ready to finalize it.
That's mostly so the disk will be readable in other players, should it not want to go back in, you probably lost the record.
Don't write on the back, use a card and keep it in the cover.

Sometimes I can use those disk's in PC for data.

When trying to play a computer generated DVD +R DL, I get a message that says this type of disc cannont be played. please insert a different disc


The disc is probably an incompatible format for this model player. Even if the disc is finalised in your PC, or in a DVD recorder, this player may still be unable to read it. Some DVD recorder/players do not recognise DVD+R (or +R DL) media, while others won't recognise +/-RW discs (except CD-RW); this is a model limitation - not a fault with either your player, the PC burning software or the discs themselves.

Nothing can be done to fix this except purchasing a model which accepts multimedia (+R/DVD-RAM etc). The question is, does your player play ANY normal DVDs? I am guessing your player will accept DVD-R DL discs just fine since this is standard as well as proper shop-bought movies.

DV 370.This player wil not accept a dvd-rw disc that has been recorded and formatted on a Toshiba.It will play a CD and all film videos.What is wrong?


Normally Home DVD players do not accept DVD-RWs. Basically DVD-RW is to be used to carry Data, and useful for PCs not DVD players.

Failure to accept DvD Ram discs in a Panasonic DMR-E55 Recorder


Possibilities are that the laser lens needs cleaning (use a proprietary cleaning disc) or that - as long as you are sure you have original manufacturers' discs and not fakes - the discs are scratched or dirty.

Cannot record on +DL - Dual Layer Discs. Maybe it is the brand?


The discs could be the problem. Even in the same model you will find some that reject a certain type of disc, and yet the one made directly after it on the production line will be fine. The same applies to PC burners.

Other times those same discs will be rejected or accepted. It's all about the fine lines in production. A minor difference to things like the laser when it was assembled, or the dye used in the discs is all it takes.

This is why most companies will have a reccomended set of discs that are known to work due to them being manufactured to a higher standard. Between the higher and lower is not alot, but enough to cause problems.

Look for a place that sells discs as singles, then get one and try it out. The other thing to keep in mind is the more expensive discs will hold the data better, longer and with less errors.
