  • Anonymous Nov 25, 2008

    I just bought brand new dvd-rw ( FUJIFILM ).

    The Recorder rejects the disks

    The message to INITIALIZE the disk does not come up.

    What are the recommended disks ?

    Other suggestions would be appreciated.

You just need a DVD burning program to convert and burn the videos directly to the DVDs. You can check on this article: Easy Ways to Convert and Burn Video to DVD

Recording from external equipment:
1) Place disc in disc tray (this always helps)
2) Wait until "LOAD" disappears from the front panel display. If unused DVD-RW disc is inserted, the message "Uninitialized Disc Do you want to initialize this disc?" will appear. Follow the onscreen prompts.
3) The audio/video inputs are located on the front panel. The audio/video outputs of your vcr are connected to these inputs through rca cables. Press the INPUT SEL. button to select the input. The front display changes in the following sequence: CHANNEL NUMBER - AV1- AV2 - DV
(DV is for a digital camcorder)
4) Press the REC MODE button repeatedly to select the recording speed (quality) SP - LP - EP - XP
5) Press the REC button
6) Press STOP when done
When using DVD-RW/DVD-R discs, the message "Updating the information on disc. Please wait for a moment" is displayed
7) Go have a shot of whiskey
Good Luck!

1st, does it come with a driver...if it doesn't, just make sure it is installed properly in your PC, then you just need to install a dvd writing software in your PC e.g. NERO Pro (v7 or later)...then, all will fit in...

Samsung DVR-R130 wont release the disc.

Most players will have a small hole on the front panel where you can access the manual release using a paperclip. I checked your Owner's Manual, and didn't see any mention of it, but most every DVD player I've ever seen has one. Hope this helps.
