Does your player support the disk type you have???
Minus disks are different to Plus disks in respect to the machines they will work in and the formats you put them on to the disk my only be read by the machine the writes them

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.
I have three possibilities for you. One obvious answer would be that you are trying to record onto either a CD-R rather than a DVD-R, but I'm assuming that's not your problem. The second would be that you are trying to record onto a dvd that your recorder doesn't support (i.e. DVD-RW and your recorder only supports DVD-R). The final possibility is that the disc is a "dud." I have had this problem before and just had to try another disc.
Good luck and let me know how it turns out, will you?
I had to run from the RCA outs of my DVR into the inputs that are on the front right of the RW340...behind the little door. Now I can easily record from live cable or from my Comcast DVR recorder. Couldn't get it to work from the backside inputs.
Mine is just the DV RW340 (no U). And yes, the manual is brutal. We had to call tech support to find what disc will actually work in the darned thing.
Now my big problem is finding more 4x DV-R disks.
Shoulda bought more when Comp USA was clearing them out a few years ago!
I have had great success with Dynex Model: DX-DVD-R25 discs. And they play equally nicely on my Toshiba DVD player in the livingroom. I have also given several away to people after I had transfered home videos to DVD and those people all had good results playing the discs that I made on my lowly Sharp Dv-RW340.
this guy "mysus" is a genius! I have had above problem on a Samsung HR-725 (160 Gb Version of the HR-720) now for approx. 1 year. I´ve called the Samsung Hotline and tried other dealers - nothing worked. Today I came accross this help and tried it out immediately - and it works perfectly. However, you do need to know a little about PCBs and electronics.
I used a variety of different -R DVDs and they all seem to work now. Many thanks once again for this fantastic link.
I have had great success with Dynex Model DX-DVD-R25. They are specifically: 4x 120min. 4.7gb.
It's a spindle of 25. The UPC Code is 00603 10116. Now I'm searching for more myself! These discs have worked well for me and play great in other DVD players, as well. If you find 'em... please post it here!
try to clean your machine by playing a lens cleaner disc coz the lens might be dirt enough not to pick on data from the discs you play. if it does not work then isuggest you change the lens coz it might be weak
What are “Recording modes”? for DVD-RW There are two recording modes available using this recorder: VR mode and Video mode. When recording to a DVD-R disc, recordings are always in Video mode. DVD-RW discs can be formatted for VR mode recording or Video mode recording. VR mode recording • 4 different picture quality/recording time settings available (SP, LP, EP, XP) • Not playable on regular DVD players • Recordings can be extensively edited • Total number of titles on the disc should be less than 99. Video mode recording • 4 different picture quality/recording time settings available (SP, LP, EP, XP) • Playable on regular DVD players (after finalizing) • Limited editing features • Total number of titles on the disc should be less than 99. Note : DVD-Video Format (Video mode) is a new format for recording on DVD-R/RW discs that was approved by the DVD Forum in 2000. You may therefore experience problems playing recordable DVD discs in some players. Symptoms include video artifacts, audio and/or video dropouts and playback suddenly stopping. Our company cannot take responsibility for problems playing discs recorded on this VCR/DVD Recorder in other players.
