According to the user manual, the following DVD media you can record with this unit are:

RECORDING: TYPES OF DISCS YOU CAN USE FOR RECORDING

DVD+R 2.4x, 4x, or 8x ONLY; DVD+RW 2.4x and 4x ONLY.

NOTES:
It is NOT possible to record on CD-R or CD-RW discs.
IMPORTANT: It is NOT possible to record content that is copy-protected. This is usually true for most pre-recorded DVD discs and most pre-recorded VHS tapes.

PLAYBACK: TYPES OF DISCS YOU CAN PLAY

DVD discs - DVD movie discs (DVD-ROM); DVD+R; DVD+RW; DVD-RW (must be recorded using video mode or VM); DVD-R (must be recorded using video mode or VM and must be finalized).
CDs (Audio CDs, CD-R, CD-RW) - Audio CDs contain musical or sound content only. mp3 discs are CDs (CD-R or CD-RW)
that contain mp3 files. This product also plays CDs that contain JPEG files and Multisession CDs.
Video CD (VCD) and Super Video CD (S-VCD) discs - Like DVD video discs, VCDs contain picture and sound content. The difference is the amount of information that can be stored on the disc.
VCDs typically have lower picture and sound quality than DVD discs.
Super Video CDs (S-VCDs) can be used to record up to 70 minutes of digital sound and video, with MPEG-2 standard video and MPEG-1 standard audio-but you must use DVD+R or DVD+RW discs to record on your DVD/VCR not S-VCDs.
Additionally, S-VCD disc compatibility is dependent on which MPEG coding software, disc design software, and disc writer software are used; and the discs themselves.

(The above information is extracted from the user manual for this particular model and is a guide only)

I find it very strange that the user manual does not provide any information about DVD-R recording since this is a DVD recorder. I guess you could try those types of discs in it, otherwise it will playback finalised DVD-R discs recorded/burned in another machine.

I assume you have the original manual for this unit. If not, you may be able to download it free from various sites. (retrevo may have it but they may ask you for email address prior to downloading)

I hope the above information helps a tiny bit with regard to DVD formats for this unit.

I have a compressed brian lara cricket 2007.iso.I extract it with ultraiso but after extract its setup does not work and its zip also not extracted.


If your .iso file is contained in a .zip file, you wouldn't use ultraiso to extract it. You would use a file compression utility to extract the files, such as WinRar or WinZip.

If you're actually trying to extract files form the .iso itself, I'm not sure you want to be. Since it's an .iso of a game, my guess is your goal is to play it; extract files from it wouldn't make sense.

An .iso file is basically a disc image; a copy of all the data that was found on a disc and can be put back on a disc. To use it you can either burn it back onto a disc or use it as a virtual disc.

To burn it back onto a disc, you'll need a blank disc with enough space for the disc image to be burnt to. You'll also need to use some type of disc burning software, such as Nero.

To use it as a virtual disc you have to use a disc drive emulator, such as Daemon Tools or Virtual Clonedrive. After you install the program you mount the disc image to the virtual drive; after that you use the virtual drive as if it had a real disc in it (you can autoplay, examine the files on the disc, etc).

Hope this helps!

I don't founr cd 74 mn 650mb, what use the DENON CDR M30 ??


If I understand your question, it can play any kind of music CD but it can only record on CDR-Audio or CDR-Music discs only.

• Only audio CD-R/RW discs can be recorded with this unit. "Use Audio CD" will be displayed when a disc other than one

for use with audio such as a CD-R/RW disc for use with a personal computer or another type of disc is loaded. (See "Discs that Can Be Used with this Unit" on Page 5.)

• CD-R discs can be recorded to only once. The recorded information cannot be erased.

• The recorded information of CD-RW discs can be erased. When this disc has been finalized, erase after the finalization removal operation has been performed. (See "Cancellation of CD-RW disc finalizing" on Page 28.)

• Recording mistakes made with CD-R discs cannot be erased; therefore, it is recommended that a CD-RW disc be used until you are accustomed to the recording operation.


If you desire 74-minute blank disc just Google "cd-r audio 74". The unit will also use 800MB 80-minute CD's.

I was recrording a very important game, then a orenge disk icon appered on the screen, and It would not record anymore. I swiched disks to contiue recording the game. Later I tryed to upload it on to my...


That was caused be a "glitch" when the camera was writing to the disk. The reason you are unable to read it on your computer the video file was not closed down properly. This could have happened for two reasons I can think of.


  1. The first and most likely is that the disk its self had a defect on the surface. Anything from a fingerprint to a scratch or a defect in the manufacture. If what you are recording is important DO NOT use generic disks, you save pennies on the desk but risk losing what you shot.
  2. The other reason is that it might have been a onetime malfunction of the camera, you will only know this if it continues to happen with good quality disks.


The good news is that, Yes everything you recorded is still on your disk but it will take people with special talents and software to perform recovery. Look (local, or search the internet) for "Video data recovery service" Make sure that they do "VIDEO Recovery" Sorry I don't have one to recommend to you. I hope this helps you.

Does not read games


Hi,

Follow these steps when you are facing "disc wont read" problem


Step 1:Remove the disc from the system.


Step 2:Use a cloth to clean in small circles around the disc (not in a big circle going around the disc). Use DVD or CD disc cleaner if available. If you use cleaner, use a different dry cloth to clean the disc no more than three minutes after application.


Step 3:Verify that there are no disc-destroying marks on the disc. Deep scratches and chips in the middle of the disc can render a disc inoperable.As your Playstation 3 is used more and more, the lens that reads Blue-ray discs can become dirty. This will lead to discs skipping or not being read by the console. If you find this is happening on your Blue-ray discs, either movies or games, you may need to have your console cleaned. Be careful when attempting any sort of cleaning of your console, as improper handling will further damage the Playstation 3. Contact a member of Playstation Support for information on console maintenance.


Thank you !!

Cd not recording


Be sure to "finalize" the recorded cd before use in another cd player. Another thing is there are always a few bad discs in a spindle of blank discs... And sometimes you will get "check disc" or "bad disc" when a blank disc is inserted. I would be sure to use blank discs for audio use, not computer use, with your Yamaha.

My nintendo wii says an error ocurred when i put a disc in


first the obvious if ur new to wii.... make sure the picture side of the disc is the on the right side when you insert it (facing outwards)
    "Unable to read the disc" / "Disc could not be read" / "Eject the Game Disc" Error Message
    Playing Super Smash Bros. Brawl? Click here for specific help.
    If you are getting one of the above error messages:

  • If your Wii console is laying flat, it may be positioned upside down. Ensure that is positioned right-side up: the game disc slot should be above all three buttons and the SD Card slot.

  • Ensure that you are properly loading a Game Disc.

dd0311d.gif
  • If your console is placed vertically, the disc label will face to the right.
  • If your console is placed horizontally, the disc label will face upwards
If you know you are inserting the Game Disc correctly, but are still have the same problem with only one game (or if you only have one game), try cleaning the Game Disc by following the disc cleaning procedures
Cleaning a Game Disc Fingerprints, smudges, and other foreign material can interfere with a game disc being properly read by the Wii console. Please use the information on this page to properly clean a dirty Game Disc.
Important Notes (please read first):

  • Use only: straight strokes when wiping the disc (do not use a circular motion).
  • Use only: a clean, soft, cotton cloth (do not use paper towels, facial tissue, etc.).
  • Use only: water (do not use soap or any other cleaning solution).

  • Do NOT use: solvents such as: benzine, window cleaner, paint thinner, anti-static aerosol spray or abrasive cleaners.
  • Do NOT use: machines designed to clean discs or remove scratches. These types of devices could damage the surface of the disc.
Properly cleaning a game disc:

  1. Dampen a portion of a clean, soft, cotton cloth, using only plain water.

  2. With the damp part of the cloth, use straight strokes and wipe the bottom of the disc (non-labeled side) from the inside rim to the outside rim.
  1. Using a dry part of the cloth, use straight strokes and wipe from the inside rim to the outside rim.

  2. After all of the water has been removed, let the disc sit for at least two minutes to completely dry before inserting it into the Wii console.

  3. Try to play the game to see if the problem has been resolved.
    • If the problem has been resolved, be sure to properly take care of your game discs by storing them in their plastic cases in order to help prevent your discs from becoming dirty or scratched. Storing games in cases other than the ones they came in, or storing them outside their cases, may damage the disc.
    • If the same problem continues, the cause is likely damage to the disc. Use the disc replacement policy to determine how to get your game replaced.
    • If the game never worked or you are discovering errors in areas you have entered for the first time, it is possible that the problem could be with the system or the disc. (The system may still be the problem even if the disc shows some signs of damage.) Please call 1-800-255-3700 to discuss possible repair options.
If you are occasionally experiencing disc read errors, you may want to consider purchasing the Wii Lens Cleaner.

If the Wii is having trouble with a disk, it means there's either a problem with the disk or the Wii. If your Wii can't read any disks then you'll want to contact Nintendo. Otherwise you need to investigate your disk. If you hold the bottom side of the disk to the light you should be able to see if there's a smudge or scratch. If it's a smudge, cleaning the disk will often fix the problem. I like to use the microfiber cloths used to clean eyeglasses or, short of that, a tissue. Just rub the smudged spot. (When using a tissue I generally steam up the spot with my breath first.) Don't exert more force than necessary; it's a flimsy disk, not a kitchen sink. If the disk looks good, put it back into the Wii and see what happens.
A scratch is more problematic. If it's a game you just bought, try exchanging it where you bought it. Otherwise you can try polishing out the scratch.

good luck...

thank you for using fixya's assistance

if u felt i ve spent my time to help you a very helpful rating is appreciated.
