Question about Samsung DVD-R130 DVD Recorder

1 Answer

Samsung DVD-R130 will not load dvds, but will play CDs

I have had this less than a year. It used to work fine. It started having problems more and more often reading discs, even when they weren't dirty. I have run a lens cleaner CD numerous times, and it seems to load and play CDs with no problem. But it will no longer load any DVDs I have tried, it tries to load, and then spits it back out saying that the disc cannot be read.

My Samsung DVD-R130 will no longer play or record ANY type of DVD. It can't read even a brand new movie. At first it would record, but not very well, now it has become a doorstop. Can you help ???

Hey,

have you tried a lens cleaner? the lens may have gone bad and would need to be replaced. Do you have warranty on the player?

Dvd will not record


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, try to clean the lens using a CD disc cleaner. Additionally, verify that your blanks are either DVD-R or DVD-RW.

Does not play dvds


If you have no issues with any other DVD except THIS one, then You could try looking towards the region code of the DVD. The bottom line is, If you can see other DVD's with no problem, then the issue is the DVD, not your drive or computer.

I know the slightest bit of dust either on the disk or in the player causes this in mine. Usually I can simply wipe the disk with a soft cloth when mine does it and it works fine.

I had the same problem and after reading and trying allot of disks I found the following to work.

Used Maxell - RW disk. Did a complete format on my computer (takes a while). Burned a DVD using Vista DVD burner with only a Jpg as per one of the other posts. Once the disk plays. Stop and goto disk management and format using DVD-V (VR did not work).

I know its not pretty but at least its better than throwing it in the garbage bin.
