    Hi. I'm not sure I'm in the right place, but I figure its worth a shot. I have a Samsung DVD/VCR Recorder Combo. It is model number VR335. For a few months now, it refuses to recognize my blank DVD-Rs.. they are the same brand and type i've always used with it. But when it does not spit them back out, it gives the message "This disk contains invalid data, no more title can be recorded" ... may not be the exact words but its close to that. I was just wondering if anyone knew of anything to do. I've tried the firmware update but I cant seem to get the DVD player to read the CD-R disk with the update on it. Thanks for ANY help any of you can offer!!!!

    I'd suggest a different brand of disk although it could also be that the laser on your DVD recorder is dirty or failing . I've known the same , once reliable , brand of disk to fail on me because the most recent shipment to my supplier came from a different factory using different dyes and technology .
    If your firmware is up to date there are only really those two options to consider (other than replacing your equipment , which is obviously going to be a last resort) .
