    it dosnt read DVD-R!!

  • salehabdalla Dec 12, 2008

    In my case it refuses all blank DVD disks. So I am not able to record on any empty DVD disk. Also, it does not respond to several functions on the remote control for editing for example (basic functions like play are OK). The HDD is still working.

My problem was solved.

After my previous post on Dec. 12, 2008, I called Targa UK who asked me to send the device to them. Within 3 weeks after I sent it, it came back fixed (it is still within the 36 month warranty).

Cannot record on 16X DVD-R


You will need to call Funai 1 800 605 8457 give them your brand / model number and expose your problem - they should be able to send you an upgrade disc but it will cost you -
If you want my advice - you DO NOT need a 16x disc inside a DVD recorder - the optical drives used on DVD recorders and even worse a Funai drive are quite bad as it is in terms of writing strats for higher speeds - you are better off recording at 8x on a 16x disc.this will provide better burns ( lower PIE/PIF errors and jitter %).

I HAVE A SAMSUNG DVD HR753 WHICH HAS 160 HARD DRIVE


Make sure you are using the right disk IE, DVD-R or DVD+R. Most Newer DVD player's will play DVD-R but very few play DVD+R

LG DR4810 DVD recorder says disk is full when it's not.


Have you tried a different disc? Some discs do go faulty. Is the disc compatiable with the machine? Try erasing the disc and starting again.

Targa drh 5400x will not burn dvd i have burnt 19 on it however when i place blank dvd in machine it says to change it very annoying contacted targa technical support they advised me to deleat hard drive...


Well i solved the problem by replacing the onboard dvd drive (regular IDE connection) with my PC's DVD drive (asus, can't remember the model).
Worked like a charm,burns every single dvd i put in it, DL included remote control works flawlessly, perfect.
To make it permanent i cut a hole in the lid to pass the ide/power cable through and used velcro tape to hold the drive in place, it's odd looking but works perfectly.

Record to disk


I was having the same problem and tried many different types of DVD-R (16x, 8x, even 4x thining speed might be the problem) finally went to the web page and downloaded the updated program. When I put that download into the disk drive the machine read it and the problem went away. Had not been able to use high speed before that either but it worked after the updated program was in it.

Dvd do not record


The unit is saying that its an "Un-format disc" problem. Is this the only error code you are getting? Also, what types of DVDs are being used? As in, DVD-R DVD-RW DVD+R DVD-RW and what speeds? 1x 2x 4x 8x 16x?

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.
