Question about Panasonic DVD-RV31 DVD Player

1 Answer

Panasonic DVD RV31 does not read DVDs created by Windows Movie Maker

I am using Windows Movie Maker on a Sony Vaio to create home movies. I am using a DVD+RW disc. These almost do not play on the Panasonic DVD RV31 player. What could be the issue? Is this Panasonic model capable of playing DVD+RW discs? if not, what format does one use? How to fix?

The Panasonic RV31 plays commercial movies well.

    In the end I think what worked for me is to use DVD-R only, and also to start the video using the Power-ON button (not Open/Close or Play).



    We'll see how long my "solution" works. Thanks for trying, Cordell.

The only thing that has worked for me is to make a copy of the disk after burning it in Movie maker.

DVD+RW Formats


What Operating System do you have?
What you need is a DVD authoring program. You have a plethora of programs for Linux (K3b, DVDAuthor...) and for Windows, it depends on the Version (XP: Windows Movie Maker, Vista: Windows DVD Maker).
Just open the concerned program, create a new project, add your movie and burn your DVD!

I used a disk cleaner because I kept getting a "No Disc" message after putting one in for recording. (same disc I had used previously that worked). It still reads no disc,then I put a recorded movie in and...


It sounds like the unit may be beginning to fail. DVDs are created in one of two ways - they are either burned (when you create one with the recorder) or they are stamped (most commercial DVDs are created from a master this way.) As the unit ages, the strength of the laser used to "read" the DVD begins to get weaker and weaker, eventually becoming too weak to read even the best DVDs. Not all commercial DVDs are created equally, which means some may have a deeper, neater pit pressed into the substrate making it possible for a weak signal to get reflected and read by the hardware (hence, you will experience the ability the read some commercial DVDs and not others.)

DVDs you create at home creates the "pits" by focusing the laser beam on a dye layer and causing a dye to change from translucent to opaque. Where the dye is translucent the laser beam is reflected back to the reader and where it is opaque, not. We get the 0 and 1 state that digital signals use to reproduce/transmit signals in this way.

You may be able to get the unit serviced and have the board that sends/receives the laser beam replaced - but that may be as expensive as buying a new unit, complete with warranty.
