Question about iLO DVDR04

1 Answer

I can't get a blank dvr+r disc to format. It has been quite awhile since I have recorded on this machine, but the last time I did, it worked using the same type and brand of discs.

    Thank you. I did a cleaning and changed to newer discs. Worked after that.

Hi.

  • Most writers from the same years do not work well with both DVD+R and -R. If the DVD RW works wll with DVD-R, do not use DVD+R.
  • Also ensure that you are using new DVDs. If the DVDs were open they may have been already damaged by a recording attempt made in the past.
  • Do a lens cleaning. Lens may have got dirtier, impairing more the reading/writing capacity of the optical drive. Lens cleaning can be done using a cleaner disk.

There are also firmware upgrade available for this unit. I do not think that a firmware update will help fixing the problem: ILO DVDR04/HD04 Firmware Download Page

Can't record anything....dvr won't recognize blank


Not sure, but could be as simple as switching to a dvd-rw disc. Not all recorders recognize all formats.

What format are you recording in?If the recorder is set for DVD +R, and your playback machine won't read the disc, you may need to record on a DVD-R, or a DVD +-R. Or vice-versa. Some DVDRW discs will record on one machine and won't play on another. The media are incompatible. Another problem - if you are copying a copy-protected disc, it might not play back either. Are you sure you are finalizing the disc? This process takes 4-5 minutes and requires two or three responses sometime.

Won't format and or won't read disc


I have a similar problem in that it will not record at all or not record very well.  It has a drive inside like a PC DVD drive called the DVD RAM drive. The horrible clunking (grinding) sound is the disc slipping in the spindle. Unfortunately here in Australia the fix is to replace the whole drive (AU$350)!! 
I have opened it up and tried to adjust the force of the spindle and it works for a while.
Hope somebody has a better solution.
