My JVC DR-MX1 just died after seven years. I still have a few DVD's that I failed to finalize. Do I have any options or are these now coasters? Thanks for your help

SOURCE: JVC DVD Recorder Problems DRMV7

you can do the following to try and salvage it.

1) insert a cleaning disc, even if it doesn't read the disc the brushes should hit the lens a few times while it is trying to read, do this 4-5 times or until the disc reads.
2) if that fails (even if it doesn't fail) open up the case and use canned air to clean the components, these units are dust magnets.
3) i believe this unit uses a hitachi drive, once you have the model of the actual dvd drive, you should be able to order a replacement if it is indeed bad.

9 times out of 10 it isn't the firmware thats failing, it's either the lens assembly losing alignment, or bad dust accumulation, other than that, sometimes the boards fail on the dvd drive itself, so replacing it usually clears up the issue.

hope this helps,

SOURCE: Firmware crashed, unable to get repair in UK

I also have a faulty unit with discs that hadn't yet been finalised. You can access the discs via your PC. I used a program called IsoBuster by Smart Projects. There is a free demo which you can download. Just google it.

As for the faulty power supply, just scrap the unit and DON'T buy JVC again. Eventually, they will have to listen to the economies of scale.........

SOURCE: JVC DR-MX1 loading error - how can I retrieve hard disk hdd conte

well, i sympathize with your problem- it may be a bit expensive, but there are 'data recovery' services available on-line. if the data on the hd is still intact, then they can either 'burn' it to dvds, or transfer it to an external, usb hd. then, if your pc has a dvd burner, you can archive the content to dvds! store them in hard case holders-make copies and store them in a safe place! fire-resistant safe, safe deposit box, with a trusted relative or friend, in case the originals become damaged. also, use the external to archive any future pictures, or videos- then back them up on dvds! would suggest 500GB-1TB usb 2.0 external,if your pc can support it! $85-150. cheap!
might send the external along with the 180MB to whatever service you decide to go with, that will save some $$, in the long run. (or it should- research what the recovery services offer!).
good luck!

HI, i try to copy a Hi8-Tape to DVD, t works but i can't play it on another DVD-Player. Whats the problem. Thank's.


Depending on the format of the DVDs you record, some may not be compatible for playback on other DVD players, even if you FINALISE the disc in this recorder before playing it anywhere else. Assuming you are using the correct DVD format (for example, DVD-R), did you finalise the disc in this recorder after transferring your tape? if not, that would be the reason why the DVD won't play in another machine (I am also assuming you have everything set up correctly to enable smooth transferring - picture, sound, etc.).

Most modern DVD players recognise various disc formats (+R/-R/-R DL etc) but all of these must be finalised in the appropriate drive prior to make playback anywhere else possible. There should be a menu option or similar on this model recorder which would allow you to finalise the recording - you should only do this if you are completely happy with what you recorded, and it turned out OK. Until you finalise the recorded disc it will not work anywhere else but the deck it was written in.

I hope there is no major issue with the deck in this unit which would prevent you from finalising your discs - and achieving some success with playback in other units. The last thing anyone would want is a batch of drink coasters.

this happened to mine - could be that it is getting too hot (mine is in a cabinet) - turning the machine off (by unplugging the plug, not putting on standby) and letting it cool down seems to work.

However, the dvd has now stopped working (not related to the above problem) - hence me looking
