Hi there and welcome

What happens when you try to play the DVD in another machine? What message do you get?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
in other machines they show no disc
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

Are these DVD players or computers or other devices?

And does it play in this player ok?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
plays ok in machine but not other dvd players
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

What type of DVD are you using?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
sony dvd-rw type dmw47a2
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

Can you try a blank DVD instead of a re-writable please as recorders can have issues with these, and tell me if it then plays on other devices please.

Its no problem, I recommend Phlips if you can and try to ensure you get -R DVD's

I will mark this question to remain open, so

If you have continued problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
