Question about iLO DVDR05 DVD Recorder

1 Answer

My dvd recorder keeps ruining blank dvd+r's.

When I first learned to record on my dvd recorder [a few months ago], it seemed to do a fairly good job, although the playback was a little fuzzy. However, recently the player/recorder has been behaving in an odd fashion. Sometimes it does not recoginize a disk in the tray, even a commercially pre-recorded disk. Other times it will call a disk a 'bad disk' one time, then, after I open and close the tray, will indicate there is 'no disk' in the tray and the next time and play the same disk. This even occurs with commercially pre-recorded disks. The player/recorder has also begun stopping in the middle of the formatting phase, thereby ruining several blank disks. Or, occasionally, it will apparently format a disk, then record one or two things before refusing to further record on it, calling it a 'bad disk' and asking me to put in a recordabe disk when I press the record button. It has ruined between 5 and 10 disks in very short order. I haven't been using this player very long and am not very happy with this poor preformance. Any suggestions? [I have tried a cleaning disk a couple of times without apparent benefit.]

I have suffered the same problems as you describe here. What I believe is this unit suffers from inadequate ventilation. After having this problem I examined the unit and noticed it was hot. What I've done is put 2 small flat blocks on each side of the unit, to basically suspend it so that it can get airflow under and over it, now staying much cooler. Nearly all problems now have gone away. Seldomly, I find it will still exibit the problems mentioned. Frankly the only solution I've found from there is to unplug it for a short while and, upon plugging it back in, and trying again it works flawlessly.

Wont read the dics recorded or blank

Mine seems to have died at the same time as yours--maybe 6 years is all we get. Mine says "no read" on the face for any recorded or blank DVDs. It won't even accept a DVD cleaner. No good info. out there on any websites that I could find.

I bought a Magnavox 810H 160GB HDD/DVD recorder. It's a decent machine which worked perfectly for a few months, but now I can't get it to record to DVD. The HDD recording and playback functions work fine,...

Try switching it over to DVD . Because you may still have it on HDD when you put the disc in it may be that the unit is still thinking you are on HDD and don't recognise it as a disc just the hard drive

My stiletto records for about 18 minutes then stops

Daylight savings time change a few months ago messed up the timer recording schedule - you must now fix it. Daylight savings time changes will always mess up this recorder. You must reset your recording schedule.

For more info on fixing, go to:

2 other remote possibilities:

If no signal is present at the time the recording is scheduled to start, the recording will be skipped.

Make sure you have followed all instructions on pp. 55-58

Bush recorder no longer finds blank dvd

Owing to the fact that it works with the original discs, the set is probably ok. BUT it's not very compatible with the blank discs you've purchased. You'll have to experiment with various brands until you find those that work. I find my Cyberhome deck is not only particular with some brands, but with different batches of the same brand disc. Ask some of the big box stores that sell blanks and you'll find they get a lot of returns for the same reason, they don't work in the customer's machine. Bush doesn't sound very competent in the customer support dept, so I would look to replace your Bush recorder with something more main line, and probably more expensive and compatible.
Oh, and make sure you are getting the same type of disc- DVD-R and DVD+R are not the same.

Could be the dvd player/lens. The player sucks up dust through the
player's caddy and after a while it won't read discs anymore.
A cd cleaner or a good (gently dosed) blow with compressed air might help.
