Make sure the materials you're trying to record onto the DVD
is not Copyrighted. Try to record a normal TV program onto your
VHS, transfer it to your DVD and then play it. See if that will
work. A VHS movie is usually Copyrighted and Protected by
Macrovision. The picture output can be displayed on a TV set
for viewing but is scrambled black to a DVD Recorder.
no this is done on purpose to prevent piracy. this is so that you cannot create dvd's and sell them to people. unfortunately there is no way around this unless you buy an unbranded dvd recorder which may not have the copyright protection.
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.
What is it that you are trying to record? If you are trying to record a DVD you have purchased onto a DVD-R, you will almost always run into a problem because most purchased DVDs have copyright codes burned into them, making them unrecordable. Most VHS tapes have these copyright protection codes in them as wel. If you are trying to record a television show, and are unable to do so, make sure that the DVD that you are using is compatible with your burner. If your burner is set up to record only DVD-R, then you must use only the DVD-R discs. If your burner is set up to record only DVD+R, then you must use only the DVD+R discs. Some burners will record both the DVD-R and DVD+R. If you have the right discs for your burner, make sure that the discs are correctly formatted to be recorded. Also, make sure that if you are recording from a cable box or other input that you have the correct unput channel selected on the burner. If these suggestions don't work, then it could be the brand of DVD that you have purchased (i.e. Sony,Maxell,TDK,Fuji,etc.). Check your manual for acceptable brands. I hope this helps you out. Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
I had the same problem with my recorder except that it wouldnt play any discs at all.. I finally unplugged the recorder and left it unplugged for 16 hours. Now it is fine. I am not getting any error messages.
