Hi,

the only solution to play your recorded disk on other DVD-players to "Finalise" the disk, it means you will be not able to record any other thing on that disk. This means you "close" your disk, furter recording will be not possible on that disk. I tried, it works. PC also will recognise that disk. You will find not the mormal "VIDEO_TS" and "AUDIO_TS" directories on the disk, but players will play it.
Have Fun!

I burned a dvd using a Phillips DVDR3475/37, but i cant get it to play back on any other dvd players or my computer


Its sounds as though your disc isnt finalized, look for options on your dvd recorder for finalizing discs. Also it has just come to my attention that this is the case for a lot of these machines, its like a kind of copywrite protection. Maybe look for an emulator for your pc?

I have dubbed vcr tape to a Sony DVD-RW disc and tried playing it back through a toshiba player and it keeps coming up Bad Disk. My PC won't even recognise it. When started dubbing the screen displayed 1hr...


Did you say you used a DVD-RW disc to transfer a videotape onto? The reason your PC won't recognise that disc is because the data format on it is a different language to what PCs understand - plus an unfinalised DVD-RW won't play in other DVD players - it is usually an incompatible format.

(DVD+RW discs with titles/top menus created in video mode CAN be played on a PC DVD drive or a normal DVD player as can finalised DVD-R discs (DVD-R discs MUST be recorded and finalised in the same recorder for compatible playback). DVD-RW discs can only be viewed on the unit they were written/recorded on.

The other reason for the 'remaining space' on the disc you describe showing less than 120 minutes is due to a title recently being recorded or erased - unless you format it - the 120 minute / 4.7GB DVD-RW will not show full available space. Erasing titles on re-writable DVDs does not increase space. The same rule applies to unfinalised +R / -R discs (you cannot re-format these to get the space back once recorded - they are 'once only' writables)

I recommend you invest in some DVD-R discs and re-copy your VHS tape to that - then if you are satisfied with the result, title etc., finalise the DVD-R - it will play on any DVD player or PC with DVD support (or it should). These discs are relatively inexpensive to buy just about anywhere.

Final note: do NOT finalise the DVD-RW you recorded (I hope you haven't already done this) - simply format/erase it - re-use it for something else or keep it until you need it.

You can use any brand of DVD, just take note of the format before recording/playing.

The DVD side will not recognise any disk i offer it to record to it shows a circle with a red x on it dislays that the disk is blank on the front panel


Make sure you are using the right kind of discs check the manual My player will only play the philips brand blank dvds. Also clean the player with a philips lens cleaning disc if that does not work you may, as I had, a hair on the disc spinner inside the player that caused errors.
hope this helps

Dvdr3576h will record on dvd+r but will not play on other devices


You will need to finalize the discs on the Philips. I know the manual says that +r may auto-finalize, but I found that finalization sometimes fails on the first attempt. Go into the menu for the Philips, and select the Edit Disc -> Finalize option. Once finalized, your disc should play in other players.

You have to finalize the disc. Get out of disc menu and press setup on remote. Select disc edit and finalize then it will play on other dvd players.

after recording, did you ensure the "finalize" or "lead-out" process completed?
