This model (PY90DG) DVD recorder supports the following disc recording formats: DVD+RW/DVD-RW/DVD+R/DVD-R for everyday video. These should record fine. The RW discs are for repeated recording/erasure while the R discs are once-only recording types - the R discs must be finalised in this deck to make them playable on other DVD players. DVD-RAM discs are NOT supported by this unit. This recorder will play MP3 files on a CD-R or CD-RW (not DVD-ROM) just fine as well, but will not record them.
Best discs to buy for this type of recorder are DVD-R (recommended brand - Verbatim or TDK if you can get them, but not Memorex). These are OK.
Did you provide the correct model above? The EWD2203 is a DVD player. It can only record to VHS tapes. If you recorded to the -r or -rw discs on another machine, did you finalize the disc? Finalization is needed to make discs playable in other devices. Also check if the disc needs cleaning.
If you are dealing with another DVD recorder, try another brand of disc. Often the manufacturing differences can affect how well the recorder will handle recording to the disc.
U using DVD+R DVD disc?Not possible the DVD+R DVD disc to be reformat,it only can be burn and written data's into the disc only one time to the DVD+R disc.Are u using DVD+RW DVD this disc can be reformat,but DVD+RW DVD disc doesn't reformat by itself.It can't.The DVD+RW DVD disc data's only can be over written with new data's putting into it.
I not sure as to which type of Discs that you are refering to (ie DVD+R or DVD+RW). This player will only recognize 4x (max) DVD+RW and 8x (max) DVR+R discs. If the DVD+R Disc is 16x, the DVD recorder will not recognize it once you start to record. The player will read the blank Disc and give the impression that it will record on it. I have noticed that when a 16x speed Disc is in the Drive, The recordable hours for the disc seems to double. The normal 6 Hour recording length comes up as 12 Hours when you hit the info button. Since the 8x Speed (max) discs are not available any longer, I found it best to use the DVD+RW 4x Discs and make it compatible. I then copy the compatible DVD+RW disc to a 16X DVD+R disc using my computer DVD burner. The DVD+RW disc can then be erased so that it can be reused.
The reason why you are having this problem is because you haven't finalized the disc. In able for you to play that Burned DVD that you have you need to Finalized the disc.
Finalizing a recordable optical disc means writing the disc's lead-in (the Table of Contents or TOC) and lead-out information (blank data that fills up the unused space at the end of the disc) so that a DVD player will know where the various tracks begin and end. Without the TOC, a conventional DVD player will not be able to read the contents of the disc.
Once the disc is finalized, no more information can be written to it. Finalizing takes about two or three minutes.
To finalize a DVD-RW/DVD-R:
1. Press the Menu button with the disc stopped.
2. Select Disc Manager and press Enter or the right arrow.
3. Select Disc Finalize and press Enter or the right arrow.
You will be asked twice if you are sure that you want to finalize the disc. Select Yes and press Enter.
Once the disc is finalized, you cannot delete entries from the record list. After being finalized, the DVD-R/DVD-RW (video mode) operates in the same manner as a DVD-Video. Recorded discs must be finalized in order to play back in non-Samsung DVD players.
A DVD-RW disc that has been recorded by DAO (disk-at-once mode) in a PC cannot be unfinalized.
A DVD-RW disc that has been recorded in Video Mode on a non-Samsung recorder cannot be unfinalized by a Samsung recorder.
A DVD-R disc cannot be unfinalized.
Note: Finalization does not apply to DVD-RAM.
If you cannot finalize a DVD-R or DVD-RW disc, make sure that Disc Protection is turned off. If you are still having difficulty, you may try calling technical support of SAMSUNG.
Note: Do not turn the recorder off while it is finalizing the disc. Data on the disc will be damaged if the finalization process is interrupted.
I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM WITH MY LG DVD RECORDER NOT EXCEPTING CERTAIN RECORDABLE DISCS .
NO GUARANEES BUT TRY GOING TO YOUR SETUP MENU AND RE-SET THE ORIGINAL FACTORY SETTINGS FOR THE RECORDER THEN PUT A DVD CLEANER DISC IN YOUR RECORDER TAKES ABOUT TWO MINS TO CLEAN UNIT THEN
TRY A BRAND THAT DOES WORK IN YOUR RECORDER OTHER THAN VERBATIM OR MAXEL . RECORD SOMETHING THEN EJECT IT . NOW TRY ONE OF YOUR MAXEL OR VIBATIM DISCS AND SEE IF IT WILL READ THIS TIME FOR RECORDING . GOOD LUCK .
