    Hi,



    I also have problems recording form the HDD to a disc. I have tried many different makes of disc but cannot even get the machine to recognise them it keeps asking me to insert a recordable disc.The machine will not format a disc as it cannot recognise ther is one there.



    Can anyone recommend a specific brand of disc that will work or help me with the problem.



    Thanks,



    Paul

Just bought unit. Had same problem.Tried lots of different types of disks with no luck. Tried to play already written +R disk. Worked OK. Then took out and replaced with blank -R. Came up with new screen asking me if I wanted to initialize disk. Answered yes and it took about 20 seconds. Then tried to DUB from HDD to DVD again. This time it came up with the dubbing menu, I hadn't seen before, and worked.
Hardly ideal, but the trick was to get it to recognise it as a blank and initialize. Currently burning my first disk. Didnt realise about 'FAST' mode, so taking ages.

Hi AldoronRay,

The recordings you've made on the HDD are they of standard definition TV broadcasts (SDTV) or transferred from copyrighted DVD sources? If they are coy-protected they will not record, if the size of the recording exceeds the DVD's capacity it will ask for a media with greater capacity, such as a Dual-Layer DVD. Ensure that your recordings do no exceed 4.3GB and it should work okay. I'd be surprised if the unit did no warn you, but then again it depends on how lazy the design engineers have been.

I could not find the exact manual for this on line but, I didn't search for very long.

Try to transfer a small clip of 5 minutes standard definition TV. If that fails it's probably a faulty unit and you need to get it exchanged or repaired. Depending upon were you live LG have a fairly inexpensive telephone support service who can guide you through some simple tests to determine if it's a faulty unit. They can also tell you were your nearest service centre is located.

Hope this is helpful.

Regards,

Spare head 2.

I am currently converting all of my old videos to dvd,my dvd recorder RH266 will not record some old videos, message "Record signal blocked" comes up, and record switches off. This happens even with some...


The recordings probably have a anti-piracy copy prevention signal imbedded which will block any attempt at copying.

There were several techniques used.

Will play discs burned from hdd but not commercial movie type dvd


The solution is simple.I rang LG service (so called - LOL)
Asked for a fix or reset method. (Which can be done but they won't tell novices how)
Got no joy, so now I will bin it,and spend the rest of my days telling people to avoid LG.
After all the posts I have since read about the same problem on various LG models,it is obvious their product sucks,they know it does, but won't accept the responsibility.
If I stop 4 people buying their ****,that's at least $1000 they miss out on.
If the process snowballs,how much then$$ ?
It would cost me $120 just to get it to and pick it up from the repair place.
Plus parts and labour added.
Before buying an LG DVD recorder go online and check out how many dissatisfied customers there are. In short, DO NOT BUY !!

Eject dvd doesn'start recording


This sometimes happens when a disk is not formatted prior to recording .. the DVD is telling you it cant record on it at the time you want because it would have to format first and then start recording so missing the times you have set .
Best thing to do is use re- recordable discs only and format prior to use then the dvd should start straight away .
If not then the set has a serious read problem and requires looking at by a qualified engineer ... Regards Vortash

LG RH266 DVD Recorder no sound


Hi .. It sounds like the problem you have is incompatabilty I assume that you haven tried Phono connections instead of scart , as this sometimes cures this problem .. or when purcahsing a scart look for the Miirrored type this means that the inputs and outputs are reversed this also sometimes cures the problem as some scarts put output to output and input to input ect when actually it should be output from tv to input dvd and so on ie wrong scart and there are a few of the cheaper type that have this problem .. if you have no luck using the phono let me know .. Regards Vortash

Recording problem with LG RH266 Recorder.


If the DVD is copy right protected then it won't record. By this I mean, you can't simply rent a DVD at Blockbuster and transfer it to the Hard Drive (use a computer to do this instead). Try using a DVD that is not protected, like a home video or a cd with MP3s

Lg rh266 recorder


When you put your disc in and its ready for copying over through Dubbing - when you see the quality ie xp - just press right or left til the FAST sign comes up. it maynot always come up if the recording time is any longer than an hour or less than 30 mins.

pg 47 of your manual
