Go video vr3840 dvd/vcr player recorder combo

When I put in a dvd to play what I previously recorded but has not been finalized yet my machine kicks out the dvd disk. On screen it says unknown disk or it asks me to initialize all over again but if I initialize, my recordings will be erased. When I put the dvd disk in the drive and the machine reads it it shows that nothing has been recorded. My machine is compatible with dvd-r or dvd-rw disks. I have used memorex or sony -rw & -r disks for recording or dubbing from a vhs tape onto a disk in the past with no problem playing back my recordings but recently I've had these problems and I'm not sure if it's a disk problem or a machine problem. Do I need to change disk brands? Does it sound like my disks are defective?If it's a machine problem can it be repaired?

Why are the DVDs I recorded myself now not going right into play. I have a lot, and I thought I used to watch them. Why does the screen only keep going to initialize?


perhaps you had a system before that didn't need them finalized and now this one does . which there is no fix for after the fact .

DVD PLAYS CD'S BUT WONT PLAY DVD'S


Aquarius0128 there are two things to consider here.. dvd's recorded on a computer need to be closed/finalized after you have recorded onto them in order to be used on a stand alone player.. they will play ok on original recorder because of the design of these machines finalizing prepares the structure of the disc so it can be recognised by other players as a dvd video disc.. you will usually see a 'finalize disc' option in your recording program

Second issue is this.. even if finalized an older (or even some modern) stand alone players will not recognise a recorded disc made on a computer or even if it can there are different formats DVD+R DVD-R and even DVD-RAM and DVD-RW (the two latter ones are rarely recognised outside a computer)

Initalizing DVD-Rs


are you using a quality brand of dvd-r like memorex.

Also after making a recording you must finalize the disc you recorded so it will play on other players.

DVD PLAYER


Make sure that if this is a disc you recorded that you have finalized it (closed it ) before trying to play on other players.

Also use a high quality DVD-R recordable disc to avoid compatability issues. memorex brand dvd-r is really compatible with many players and recorders.
