GoVideo Televison & Video - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


I know with the Go-Video, the DVD disc has to be 'finalized' before it's compatible with other DVD players/computers.

Check your 'set-up' menus while that disc is inserted into your Samsung DVD machine and see about pushing the 'up' arrow, if you have one, to see the contents of the DVD disc...then see if you can toggle to the right to see options for that disc, for instance, the title of it. You might see the 'finalize' option there.

Hello,

I answered this question previously and the solution remains the same;

how long have you been using the player and has it ever accept blank DVD-R discs in the past.

The problem might be as a result of weak laser (lens) or the blank discs inserted might not be compatible with player.

When the laser(lens) of a player becomes weak, it will not be able to read blank discs. It only takes a very strong laser to read/accept blank discs. If it happens that the laser (lens) is the cause of the problem, then it means you will need to replace the laser (lens) to a brand new one to be able to read blank disc. Though the player might be playing DVD and CD, note that blank disc is stronger when it comes to reading from the laser (lens), it requires sharper laser. I hope you understand this.

So, insert a CD into the player and observe if it will play.If it plays, then its obvious that your laser is very weak.

Concerning the incompatibility issue, I hope you are aware that there are various kinds of empty DVD discs such as DVD +, DVD -, DVD RW. Try any of this empty DVD discs as one of them as to be compatible with this DVD recorder.

Amongst the two topics discussed above, one has to be the cause of the problem. So its up to you to figure out which is the cause of the problem.

I hope you understand the above....

I wish you good luck.

This machine is capable of DVD to VHS and/or VHS to DVD dubbing.

Doubtful. If the drive won't read them, it may just be the brand on disk that is preventing it. Changing software settings won't improve anything if the drive in the computer can't read the disk.

If the DVD drive is a recorder, yes. If it is a player only, no. If the tape is copy-protected, recording to a DVD recorder is not possible. Assuming the tapes are not copy-protected, and you are using a DVD recorder with the correct format DVDs (DVD-R for example), you shouldn't have any problems transferring old VHS tapes to DVD.

you can only use imation or verbatim DVD+R. No other DVD's will work. I use exclusively the IMATION DVD's. Easily recognized by the logo on the disc package, it looks like the old movie reels.

Yes, just turn off the tv.

See if you can find the same DVR online, then remove the hard drive from your old one and put it in the newer one. Check ebay, if no luck, check the manufacturer's website.

This fault usually happens if the disc being read is not compatible with the player's firmware. If discs are burnt from a computer, or copies, this can happen. Does it do this with all DVD's? Are you using commercial retail DVD's? Otherwise something else is telling the player 'No Disk'. Try a disc-based lens cleaner as laser may be grubby. Or the laser diode could be defective.
