Question about Audio Players & Recorders

2 Answers

I have a Panasonic DVD recorder which is approx 4-5 years old (model EM 10 ?). The machine will play original DVD's but will not play copied DVD's or CD's (even copied DVD's using the recorder itself). The DVD player makes funny noises whilst trying to read the disk and takes several minutes. Is this enough information to help with the problem?

It's needs to clean from the dirt and dust accumulated that causing to jump dvd / cd disc that produce funy noises and ,scrathy like noise,The slider mechanism, depending on the age of the unit and,consists of the small chrome rail, a drive motor, a small gear assembly, and (in some units) a small belt that drives the slider unit via the motor. This small belt causes all sorts of problems. If the belt is broken or slipping, it can cause skipping, dropouts, or simply no start up at all. Also, if the belt breaks in the middle of the disc, the drive mechanism gets hair or dirt wrapped up into the gears, or the pick-up assembly doesn’t return to the start position (called home), the unit will (99% of the time) refuse to release the disc, causing it to become stuck inside the unit. There’s a little micro or leaf type switch located at home position that sometimes gets dirty or breaks and, causing this problem also.

This player had problems playing copied discsfrom other machines but should play its own.Have you been finalizeing the discs? if not do this when you record a disc,also try useing cheap dvds.Lastly if the player is still makeing funny noises it may need a new dvd drive.

hope this helps.

How can I show my DVD-R(Memorex) on my televison?


I assume you mean that your current DVD player won't play this DVD?
There are 3 reasons that it won't play. One that the disc is faulty and therefore won't play on any machine. Two that the disc has a scratch or has marks on it. You can look at ways to clean the disc on-line!
3 That it was not finalised on the machine that it was recorded on. If you current player is a + machine it won't play the disc if it is unfinalised. You will need to use the old machine to finalise the disc or another "-" disc recorder to do it - if it will accept the disc! Otherwise if the old DVD recorder is no longer with you, then your only hope to save the disc is to find another model of your old recorder to do it on. If it was a common model someone might let you finalise the disc!

Whenever I burn a DVD in my recorder I can't get it to play in anything other than the recorder it was made with. When inserted into my DVD drive on my computer it says it is a CD with nothing on it...


You need to FINALISE the recorded disc for compatible playback in any DVD player or PC. This should be a menu option on your DVD recorder. (similar to DVD management on Panasonic recorders).

It always helps to do a test recording on some discs first, then finalise them to see how they play elsewhere before going ahead and doing serious recording in this unit.

It sounds like the recorder will only record the dvd+ format, which does NOT need finalizing to play in other machines. ( you can record a dvd- , play it back on the machine you recorded it on, but need to finalize it to play on other machines)
The other units may only accept dvd-.(dvd- being the same format as you would buy or rent a film on)
One option, record the dvd on a dvd+rw (if possible) then copy to a dvd-r using your computer. The average use of a dvd+ is 1000 recordings.
There are many free disc burning suites available to download. Just google "free disc burning software" and take your pick.
I use 1 called "magix goya base" for copying disc to disc and "NTI" for burning to HDD and then to disc, if you only have use of 1 drive.

Shakey dvd copy


Was your original tape a commercial one?I.E. was it pre-recorded? Did you use a time-base corrector to re-establish the vertical interval? If you can answer yes to the first and no to the second one, that is probably the problem as copy guard is present on those tapes and must be circumvented to make "archival copies"...accordianman
