timcclayton -> Problem with DVD-RW disk (7/28/2005 5:16:30 PM)


I am trying to record from a camcorder onto an LG DR4810 DVD Recorder, but the DVD-RW disk doesn't play on other DVD players. The steps I went through were:

1. I connect the camcorder to the LG's digital input (IEEE 1394 connector).
2. I insert the video tape into the camcorder and rewind it to the beginning.
3. I insert a blank DVD-RW disk into the recorder and format it when prompted.
4. I press PLAY on the camcorder and straight away press RECORD on the recorder.
5. The footage appears on my TV as it is playing/recording as I have linked the recorder to my TV so that I can check it is running OK.
6. After an hour of recording, I play the DVD-RW disk in the recorder and it plays perfectly
on TV.
7. I put the DVD-RW disk in 2 other DVD players and get a "NO DISK" error on both.
8. I put the DVD-RW disk in my PC's DVD drive and can see a couple of files on the DVD, one of which has a file extension of VRO, but the DVD-RW won't play. However, when I change the VRO extension to MPG, I can view the file (although the quality doesn't seem to be too good).

It is driving me mad, and I'm running out of hair - can anyone help me ???

Many thanks,

This is just a matter of the players you are using don't play that particular DVD-RW disc.  You can try DVD+RW and see if that helps, or you will have to use regular DVD-R or DVD+R.

It sounds like a media issue to me also.

Thanks for the replies guys. I have tried a DVD-R instead of DVD-RW this morning but get the same problem. Does this mean that I will not be able to convert VHS to DVD at all then? I have a number of VHS tapes that I want to convert - will I have to send them to a professional converter rather than try to do them myself?

Thanks again for the help,

No, you have "already" converted them, this just means that your standalone PLAYER will not pay them.  Try a DVD+R, it is most compatible with standalone players.  Remember, DVD+R NOT DVD+RW. 

If this does not work, perhaps it's time to get a new standalone player, especially as cheap as they are...

The trouble is, the LG recorder only records onto DVD-R or DVD-RW, it is not compatible with DVD+R or DVD+RW.

Also, if it is my "cheap" DVD player (and I admit it was cheap!), why will the DVD I created not play on a more expensive SONY DVD player that I tested it on, and also why won't it play on my PC???

Are yu burning in VR-Mode or Video? Did you finalized the disc?

May I suggest Nero to author your DVD with???  You should "NEVER" have to format a DVD-RW to use as a DVD Movie.
