Whenever I burn an avi file on to a Blank CD or a Blank DVD I have problems playing it back on my Smasung R155 Recorder. The disc plays, however the image appears blocky and jittery. However I have tried the same discs on friends dvd players that have divx and it plays back with no problems at all. Please help!!!
Tried the firmware update and it wouldn't work. unfortunately i think its a case of you get what you pay for. time for a new player. also stopped recording as it won't recognise blank dvds anymore. tried 4 different types/makes.
"Some MPEG4 files created on a personal computer may not be play
back. That is why Codec Type, Version and Higher resolution over
specification is not supported"
Silly Samsung they dont even mention what codec and its resolution is supported. never going to buy a branded player again. My cheap Asda wierd DivX player was great no porblems at all, but a shame they dont make them anymore...
OK i got the firmware to work but its no good player still not playing DIVX smoothly. To update just add the ZIP file you downloaded along with the R155P.RUF ON THE ROOT OF THE CD. INSERT THE CD AND FOLLOW PROMPT ONSCREEN... GOOD LUCK WITH THIS S##T PLAYER
Got the firmware to work, but its no good, still plays blocky... to update the firmware i added the file directly on the CD along with the uncompressed file in the directory and file itself on the root of the CD... i burned a finalised CD and not a DVD

check to see if the recordings are protected, under settings in the options menu, can the disc be played in a computer? what type of files are being copied to the disc? i.e. are they vob files or avi,mp4,divx?
There is No software download for the DVD plaer itself. Where you are going wrong is the Format ie avi that DVD player does not support it. You can Google free software to download which will allow you to convert you AVI file to something that the Dvd player will play:
DVD Video • VCD • SVCD • DVD-R • DVD-RW • DVD+R • DVD+RW • CD (Audio) • CD-R • CD-RW • Picture CD • Divx
so If you type in Google free Avi converter Then this will list several. You really want one that will convert to DIVX or VOB those will definately play on your DVD player.
I hope this has help you out. I tryed not to go into too much detail.
First of all do you have the right kkind of dvd player?
I have a dvd player that plays DIVX movies, so I use Roxio software and burn a data cd of an avi. file. From my understanding AVI, DIVX, & MP4 can be read as a divx. Make sure you close you secission on the disc or it wont play.
Don't know if I can help or not, but this what I do.
I've downloaded the DIVx player and converter software (free) to my computer. I can download mpeg, avi movies, etc, and convert them to DIVx format if I need to. The DIVx player has a 'burn' feature that is fast and burns them in a DIVx format. My old DVD Recorder will not play DIVx format but my 'cheap' Phillips will. I just keep it hooked up to my old DVD recorder through the front RCA input jacks. When I want to play a DIVx movie and watch it on the TV, I use the cheap Phillips player. I have to change the input on my old DVD Recorder to 'Front Input. I usually record the movie on a DVD R in my DVD Recorder while I'm watching it if I want to keep a copy to play later on the DVD Recorder. Most of the time, I burn the movies to RW DVD and erase them later.
I don't remember the web site for the DIVx players and converters, but you should be able to find it with a search.
There are at least two types of AVI formats that I know about: DIVX and XVID. When you encode your movie files are you encoding them always to DIVX? Some machines can play one format and not the other.
Did you make sure to handle the disc with care and not smudge it with your fingers? Dirty discs can easily be cleaned, using a super soft cloth & rubbing alcohol wiping in a swirling motion as you go around the disc. Discs with scratches need to be taken to a shop and professionally repaired.
Is the machine itself dirty? Simple fix: CD/DVD cleaner disc. Its got these little brushes on it to clean the laser eye.
Are you covering up any air holes on the outer case? Don't cover these up or the machine will get too hot, and will refuse to play anything.
If by bit-torrents you mean avi video files the DVD recorder must state it will play divX files. But if the files are encoded with a codec other than divX or X-vid then they may not play directly on any standalone DVD. If the files you have downloaded are mpg2 files there is a chance they may play. Lite-on do a nice small compact model that plays divX, or the Toshiba D-R17DTKB plays most things and has 1080p upscaling so you can connect it to an HDTV and upscale any slightly poor quality files you may of downloaded.
