|I thought that I had purchased a great DVD player until I tried to play Region 2 discs. These do not play on this player. It says it is region free. The box itself says up to 6 hours battery life on the lowest power settings (low back-light.

FAQ for the Datavideo Recorders
Q1. Which CD-R and CD-R/W Disc are recommended for use with the VDR-3000? CD-R Disc Brand Speed CMC Datavideo FUJI LeadData Mitsubishi Maxell Mitsui Prodisc Silver PIONEER Ritek RICOH SONY TDK Taiyo Yuden CD-R/W Disc Brand Speed

Q 2. Why will a CD-R Disc written by the VDR-3000 not play back in some home VCD or DVD Players? Some VCD or DVD Players do not support CD-R disc playback, so it cannot recognize the CD-R thats written by the VDR-3000. See the attached VCD/DVD player list for your reference. Q3. What is the difference of VCD, HQ-VCD, S-VCD, DVD-Photo and CDDVD format ? VCD: MPEG-1 is a compression format compatible with most of VCD and DVD players. The VCD disc can be played back by most VCD players, DVD players and Microsoft Media Player Software on a PC. Since the VCD has a low resolution and low bit rate 1.15Mbps format that is a good application for long recording times without degrading too much of the image quality. This is ideal for seminars and conference audio/video recording. VCD can record 74 minutes audio/video program on a 650MB CD-R disc. HQ-VCD: MPEG-1 compression format is compatible with most media players. The HQVCD can be played back by most DVD or S-VCD players and Microsoft Media Player software on a PC. HQ-VCD has a low resolution but high bit rate 4Mbps, which is good for recording the active video without blocking effect. The HQ-VCD can record 37 minutes of audio/video on a 650MB CD-R. S-VCD: MPEG-2 compression format. The S-VCD player or DVD player that supports S-VCD format can playback the S-VCD disc. PC CD-ROM can also playback the S-VCD with the Datavideo auto PC player. The S-VCD has double the resolution compared with VCD and also has a higher bit rate 2.4Mbps. The SVCD can record 37 minutes of audio/video on a 650MB CD-R.
DVD-Photo: MPEG-2 video compression format. The DVD-Photo disk can be played back on a DVD player which supports S-VCD format and can be played back by PC CD-ROM with the Datavideo auto PC player. DVD-Photo is full D1 resolution (same as DVD) but only available for still images or slow motion video sources due to low data transfer rate of 2.4Mbps for a high video resolution. The DVDPhoto mode is very useful for creating a video album with high quality images on disk. The DVD-Photo can record upto 98 images on a CD-R disc with DVD video image quality.
MPEG-2 compression format. The CDDVD disk can be played back by newer version DVD players and by a PCs CD-ROM drive with our auto player. The CDDVD disk is full D1 resolution (same as DVD) with a very high data transfer rate of 4.8Mbps. It provides high quality video images for presentations, educational or personal video collections. The CDDVD disk can record 18 minutes audio/video program on a 650MB CD-R.
Q4. Why will home DVD Players not playback SVCD Discs. 1SVCD is not a DVD standard format, so most DVD Players do not support SVCD Disc playback. 2Some VCD or DVD Players do not support CD-R disc playback, so it cannot recognize the CD-R written by the VDR-3000. See the attached VCD/DVD player list for your reference. Q5. Why will the recorded video not synchronize with its audio on playing back? We have evaluated similar conditions on playing back the disc with few Players, but this problem wont happen on playing back the disc by most famous brand of VCD/DVD player, such as Pioneer, SAMPO, ACER so it is a VCD/DVD player related compatible problem. Q6. Why does the VDR-3000 take a much longer time on reading some various Brands of CD-R, CD-R/W discs? Some CD-R, CD-R/W disc are not fully compatible with the VDR 3000 CD-R/W drive, so it will take a longer time to recognize the new disc or sometimes it will fail. We recommend using the Datavideo specific VDR-1000R CD-R or VDR1000R/W CD-R/W disc, which have been verified and approved good quality for VDR-3000. Q7. Why does the recorded video have some flicking or shifting phenomenon? Most of the root cause is the original video source quality, problems due to too old VHS tape or others. Datavideo manufactures a Time Base Corrector machine TBC-1000 or TBC-3000, which you may use it to correct the unstable video source and color processing (TBC-3000 only). Q8. Why does recording fail on some discs. If there are more than 10% recording fail situation, please contact Datavideo for further support. According to the quality level of CD-R disc manufacture: The A grade disc field failure rate is about --- 2% The B grade disc field failure rate is about --- 6% The C grade disc field failure rate is about --- 10% So there is the opportunity to have a failure recording due to bad disk. 25
Q9. Why do some recorded CD-R/W discs have mosaic video or overlay video effect after a few erase and re-write cycles? Its because the erase operation was not completed; you may double erase the disc in VDR-3000 to resolve the problem. Q10. What is the right setting for Power MAC G4 or iMAC to output video to VDR1000/3000DV for producing Video CD disc? a). Require MAC O.S. 9.0.4 and QuickTime V4.1.2 for Power MAC G4 or iMAC b). Please use the Final Cut Pro or iMovie software utility in the G4 for video capture b). To disable the "remote function" in the Apple fire wire device control and treat the VDR-1000DV interface as a video capture card, which means you need to "click" on capture video manually as soon as the video is showing on the screen. c). Online Un-plug the VDR-1000/3000DV fire wire cable from the G4 and re-plug it back again to initialize the cable link and the G4 will find the correct protocol to work with VDR-1000/3000DV. Q11. Why am I getting the error message "Vencmpeg did not start"? The VDR-3000 needs to have a signal to synchronize to before it records. This error message is usually given when a user enables recording on the VDR-3000 before playing back source material. When recording from DV(IEEE/1394) you must play your source before pressing record on the VDR-3000. Running 10 seconds of black should allow for a smooth recording entry. Q12. Why isn't the DV input working? When connecting to your unit make sure that you have switched the selector switch in the back of the VDR-3000 to "DV". Once the DV selector switch is changed to DV, a red led will appear on the front panel of the VDR-3000. Play your source video and watch to see that the video is appearing on your monitor. Q13. Why doesn't the S-video input work? If you want to record from an S-video input source the selector button on the remote control must be pressed when the unit is powered up. On the lower right corner of the remote control there is a button marked "I/P" this is the button that must be pressed. The default input for video is composite (RCA type connectors) if you don't change the input the S-video input will roll and the video signal will not pass through. Q14. Why doesn't the CD-R disc that was written by the VDR-3000 play back in my home DVD player? Not all consumer dvd players are compatible with the VCD or SVCD formats. Some consumer dvd players are unable to read CD-R and CD-RW discs.
Q15. Is there a way to get Windows Media Player or any other editing program to recognize the "avseq01.dat" file created by the VDR-3000? The file name and extension of the raw mpeg file can be renamed to a "*.mpg" extension. Windows Media Player is able to recognize this format. Note: This will only work with mpeg-1 formats (VCD and HQ-VCD Modes) that are created on the VDR-3000. To achieve this, follow the directions below: Explore your VCD or HQ-VCD disk in Windows Explorer Look for a folder called "MPEGAV" (this is where each track of *.dat files are saved in) Copy the AVSEQ01.DAT file to C:\ or any directory on your hard drive. Right click your "AVSEQ01.DAT" file and choose "Rename" Rename the file (anyname).MPG Then press - Enter The file now appears as a Windows Media Player icon with the name you gave it. The file will now be recognized as such and will open in programs that are compatible with Windows Media Player.
Q16. What do I do if my machine has a rolling picture and I am inputting an NTSC signal? The unit could be set to the wrong format such as PAL@25 frames/second. To change the input selector back to NTSC mode, the remote control is needed. There is a button on the remote called "P/N" it stands for PAL/NTSC. It sets the input format of the machine. To change it back to NTSC please do the following: 1. Power the VDR on. 2. Insert a blank CD-R. 3. Select any recording format. (VCD, etc.) 4. Press the "P/N button on the remote controller. 5. Keep pressing it until it either says "Auto or NTSC". (Either one of these modes should be fine.) 6. Once this is completed, eject the blank disk and discard it. This should make the PAL menu display go away and put the VDR 3000 into NTSC mode.
