RECORDED DISCS NOT PLAYING BACK ON OTHER DEVICES


Did you finalize the disc on the DVD recorder that burned the file? Without more information on your DVD recorder, I can't give you exact directions to find the command on your unit. On my DVD/VCR, after recording, I usually finalize a disc before removing it from the recorder. On mine, I press Menu and go to Disc. I add a title (optional) and then select the Finalize option. Then accept the finalization (which makes it impossible to add more to the disc). For -RW discs, you can unfinalize and then reformat them. Write once discs are permanently stored.

What type of disc did you record to? Some other players may not recognize DVD+R or DVD-R discs or DL discs. Check the specs on the other players and try different brands/types of discs for future recording.

If you add a comment with the type of DVD recorder used to burn the problem discs, I may be able to give additional advice.

Disc say cant record,what disc do i buy


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.

Jvc dvd/vcr player records from vcr to dvd but only plays back the dvd on the jvc DR-MV79 won't play on any other dvd players


Have you finalized the DVD in question? Unfinalized discs usually won't play in other machines. Is the DVD type compatible with the other dvd players? (Some may not handle DVD+R for example; it is an acceptable disc for the jvc DR-MV79.) Try a different brand and type of DVD. Check your other players supported discs.

To Finalize the disc, Menu > Setup > Disc Setting > Finalize (if needed set Disc Protection to Off).

I hope this helps.

I have a memorex 700MB dvd/cd , i made a video for my family for christmas and ever type i press burn it says disc type mismatch... i need help! please.


You need to use a DVD+R disc or a DVD-R disc to burn a video. It sounds as if you have made a DVD type video and put a CD-R in the slot and your burning software is detecting that and refusing to put the data on the disc, knowing that it wouldn't play on a DVD player.
Look at the front of your dvd drive - if it has a "DVD" symbol with an oblong disc below it and says "-R -RW" then you need to use a DVD-R disc. If it has a symbol of a big "RW" then you need a DVD+R disc. If it has both, then you should be able to use either one.

I downloaded a movie on my computer. I burnt the disc and when I put it in the dvd player it says cannot play disc. I have a sony DVD Player. Any thoughts?


The exact model of DVD player matters. Not all models can play a Computer burned disc.
There are several types of DVD
A factory type DVD in DVD format
A burned movie in MPEG format
a burned disc in DivX format.
Etc.
Try burning the disc with a DVD Creator program, not just 'Burn to DVD'. It's not the same thing.

Sony DVD+R AccuCORE disc recorded on HP dv4-2045dx laptop notebook will not play on Bose 321 system Get disc incompatible message What can I do?


Sometimes dvd players will have problems playing certain types of recordable discs. You might need to switch from the Sony brand and try a different one. Also there are DVD+R and DVD-R types. The Bose might have issues trying to play a "+" type disc. Also make sure that the disc is being properly "finalized" by the burning software you are using so the Bose system will recognize the disc. The burning software I use is called Nero Burning Rom and it is very easy to use. It allows you to control the burning for various applications and can help with "problem discs". If you are able to play other burnable discs in the Bose and the Sony discs are the only one giving you the problems then it is probably just that brand and you will not be able to use them with your Bose. And just a note some older DVD burners can only burn "+" type discs or "-" type discs but not both. Your computer according to the specifications from HP should not have a problem burning both types as long as the drive is the original.

Hitachi dvd player not reading all dvds


Hello, I'm here try and help your problem, first older DVD players only read certain disc formats, If you have your owners manuel to your DVD player it will tell you what types of discs the DVD player will play. There are seneral types of burnable disc's DVD -, DVD +, DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW, please looking in the owners manual for the types of discs that the player will read, also in the same secton it will tell the types of formats that it will read DVD Video, DVD ROM, and there is a few others, Next is when you burn DVD's the type of burner you have makes a difference. You will need to find out what format your DVD burn, burns to disc, some of the newer DVD players
read alot of the formats. I would start by finding out what your DVD burns first, then I would suggest buying a DVD player that will read that format. If you have anyother questions please feel free to post them, Thank You and have a great day.

TV says WRONG DISC TYPE


is the dvd a store bought disc or a burnt dvd? If the disc is a store bought disc I unfortunately can't help you. But if the dvd you are trying to play is burned from dvd burner you are most likely using the wrong type of burnable dvd. There are two types of dvd's you can burn, DVD-R and DVD+R. You need to make sure which one you dvd player can play, some play one or the other, some play both. I have also heard of some older ones that can't play any type of burned disc. Hope that helps Peter

Will not play any DVD


I may have bad news for you. Here's my story with the PVD4744S.

I watched over an hour of a DVD-video disc one night, no problems. The next night, I played only the intro; then the DVD player gave a message, "This type of disc cannot be played. Please insert another disc." Thereafter, I couldn't play any of several DVDs.

The manual gives little help:
http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/PVD4744.PDF

My disappointment is exacerbated by the declining availability of DVD/VHS players with an RF modulator. Maybe Panasonic should create a repair kit for aging devices.
