That should be in the unit's specs, instruction manual, etc.
If it isn't, check the manufacturer's web site, or Google for a review of the unit.
Since you didn't supply the brand and model, it's not possible to provide a better answer.
Sorry but it is the LiteOn VCR/DVD Recorder LVC-9016G. Does this help? Thanks
I tried, but I didn't spot any specs anywhere.
My suggestion is to use the slowest recording speed possible. That probably means that it can use any blank DVDs. I would get 4x or less. Higher speed disks are probably a waste of money.
Help with DVD Speeds
Your player will play all speeds. The speed of the cd/dvd relates to the burning speed. Check the speed of your burner and buy disks accordingly. Stay away from 1x or 2x speed, they usually have warnings on them about not being able to play on all players/burners. I buy 8x and burn at 4x but that is just me. With video I prefer quality not speed.
He can't find the speed of his burner. Perhaps you should
look that up before advising him on burning speeds.
Re: He can't find the speed of his burner.
He said he bought a vcr/dvd unit. He didn't mention anything about a burner. This is obviously a player, vcr being a video cassette recorder (with a built in dvd player). I believe I gave the correct advice.
Ummmmmmmmm, then he wouldn't be asking what speed
to buy would he? You talked about burning at 4x, etc. That was because..........
Have you ever seen a DVD player that records on VHS? What brand and model would that be? I would like to add it to me collection of curiosities.
Re: Ummmmmmmmm, then he wouldn't be asking what speed
Please don't get on my case. So I missed the post where she said it was a recorder, isn't it up to janenolan to complain, not you?
For your information even vcr/dvd players can record on vhs tape side.
The Bottom Line Is.....
So I should stick with 8X and not 16X for my LiteOn VCR/DVD Combo Unit? Would 16X hurt the unit in any way?
By the way I burned 3 DVD'S (DVD+R) and only one will play in my computer. I finalized all 3 but this problem persists. Thanks
You just MIGHT want to try some 4X disks especially if
8x and 16x are not working. Your unit probably does not do well at high speed.
Re: The Bottom Line Is.....
I presume you are recording something from the tv as this is a stand alone recorder. Do the burnt disks play back on this unit? When you play them on your computer what software do you use and what is the error message?
With respect to the disks, you recorder will record at 1x as you are copying from a 1x source. While the speed of the disks should not be a problem the make of disk may well be. Did you buy good media, what type was it?
Go to www.videohelp.com and look under dvd recorders. You can search for your unit there and see what other people have to say. I tried but could not find the exact number you quoted, maybe you typed a wrong number in your post.
Yes My Unit Plays DVD'S Made on the unit
Yes My Unit Plays DVD'S Made on the vcr/dvd LiteOn Unit. No problem there but all of the movies that I taped from tv and transfered to dvd will not play on the computer. But 2 dvd's that I made which consisted of songs clips from old tv shows do play on the computer. What is going on here????
Windows XP Home
Pentium 4 2.0
120 HD space
I have a set-top Sansui VHF/DVD recorder that uses only DVD-R and DVD-RW media.
It records at a speed of 1X.
I use 4X media most of the time.
The DVDs that are made on the Sansui will play on the computer and other brands of DVD set-top players.
However you must ''finalize'' them before they will play on other devices.
Also, you can add a lot of menu featues to the DVD start up page but if you do, it will not play on other devices.
It has a more simple choice where you can only add the title to the start up page. That mode will play on other devices.
You might want to recheck the users manual again to see if you are overlooking some restrictions that prevent the DVD from playing on other devices.
But My Computer will play DVD'S from the store
But My computer will play any DVD that I get from the library and the store, but not the movies (from TCM that I videotaped) that I burn and finalize on my DVD/VCR unit. The only DVD'S that I made that will play on the computer are ones that consists of musical munbers from old movies. Why??? Any ideas?
(NT) DRM is the likely answer.
