Have had this HDD/DVD recorder for about 8 mnths have only ever played photo, music and DIVX discs. have been trying to play bought DVD's and keeps saying 'unknown disc' and ejects disc. out of all discs will play 2 bought ones - cannot see what difference there is in these 2 from rest. once played 'Roadhouse'; but cannot remember how I got it working, will not play now gives error message. Very upsetting and frustrating to kids as unable to watch dvd's received as birthday pressies. Can you help?
The cd tray eject after put in the DVD movies, but VCD working fine...it is means that the drive's region code haven't set yet .(please refer to user manual to setting the region code) ..or unplug the recorder drive from the dvd player,using the computer setting to change the region code by connecting to computer's IDE cable .

I have an LG RH278 HDD/DVD Recorder, which was suffering from the problem that it could not play any bought DVD movies, which were previously working fine in that same player. It would however play svcd and DVD+R/-R movie discs.
The solution was to replace the laser tray. I found a new LG DVD BD lens LPC-815 laser tray here: http://www.laser-xh.com/en/?act=showproduct&proid=1147
I bought two for $5.50 each. Shipping was $32 (DHL), all together $45.10 (PayPal fees included). Delivery was fast and accurate within 3 working days (China - Sweden).
I got a DVD+R & a DVD-R recordable discs and I used my LG HDD\ DVD recorder model RH1F99MHS and i recorded on the discs , the DVD can read them but my pc & laptop can't also other DVD players can't play them
I've found that once a disk is formatted in certain formats with a pc it prevents the LG from reading it. Format it again in the LG (if you can!) or use the pc to format it using the UDF1.5 setting in a pc (which sort of resets it so the LG can at least see it as an unused disc again).
All in all I have found my RH19991H really confusing as far as disk initialization and formatting and finalizing is concerned. Sometimes you can select to finalize a +-rw dvd and sometimes not (the latter is the the case according to the manual) and sometimes I can select the format mode and sometimes not. Sometimes the machine auto finalizes the dvd+-rw (the way it should be says the manual) and sometimes it does not and then I cannot use it in the pc. I have also created some disks with DivX files and was able to play them in the LG and then using the same pc, same type of discs, same video editing software and same settings created other DivX files I could not play on the LG. It seems the software on the machine needs some work...
