I have a govideo vr4940 DVDR VCR combo it worked pretty good for awhile now the VCR works and it plays CD’s won’t read DVD’s I have taken it apart i see that it is a DVDR drive like a computer but it doesn’t say what it is what can I replace this DVD drive with I tried one I had from a computer but it didn’t work I am assuming it needs the same kind.
Try a lens cleaning first
I have tried cleaning the lens it did help for awhile and now its not working again that why I want to just replace the DVD drive
The go video vr4940 does look like a nice unit, finding a replacement drive could be a major problem is go video is no help. If it is a standard computer drive I would try another one say on from Liteon.
