Question about Samsung DVD-VR320 DVD Recorder/VCR
The DVD reader/writer works only when playing a disk. When a new disk is inserted it normaly takes a minute or so to load (probably also formating) then the disk is ready to record. Now when a new disk is inserted it says "load" for several minutes and then says the disk is bad. I opened the unit, then the disk player and cleaned the lense although I could see nothing on it. After re-assembly it worked the same, I beleive the disk unit needs to be replaced but cannot find a place to buy it. The only label says "loader B1.8z". I'd appreciate any help. Thanks, Russ
I rec'd this unit for christmas '06 and it was 6 mos. before I tried to copy from VHS. I only have made 5 disks, now I have the same problems everyone else is having.
I've called Samsung. I've downloaded the firmware update and loaded. I've reset the machine (got one extra recording for this feat - for a total of 6 disks made in 2 yrs).
Now it won't play regular rented or store-bought disks. The same problem as someone else mentioned.
My 100% fix for viewing rented or purchased dvds is: to insert the disk, while the unit says "load", repeatedly press the play button on the remote. Sounds simple, but I'm at 100% on dvds that wouldn't load when I just put them in and waited for it to read. And I've had to do this many times.
I've given up on recording onto dvds on this machine, though I'm wondering if should have purchased more expensive blank disks.
