From krystle i am an electronic tec:
what i have found the big difference between the philips dvdr3455h and the dvdr3575h is the dvdr3455h boot from software on the hard drive and the dvdr3575h boot from an eprom. the dvdr3455 has both booth software and movie edit software, if the hard drive become bad in the 3455 or the software become corrupted it wil hang at the philips logo screen.
the dvdr3575h will boot with a bad hard drive or no hard drive at all you will you wont be able to capture your video to the hard drive. if the movie edit software become corrupt or damage when you press record button it will just lock up the recorder.you will need a software reload if the software become corrupt.
if you need a reload on your hard drie email me i will tell you what you need to do my email is email@example.com

I believe you are looking for a 320 GB replacement drive, I would remove the one in there first to check which brand it is, and then just replace it.
LG haven't release any information saying that the hard disk has any specific brand (or as far as i have read about them) And the software to run the drive should be separate. The only info i cannot provide, is the formatting options. You would need to check that with your PC first by putting the old drive in your pc and checking the formatting on the old disk, then just format the new one to the same file system and it *should* work. I say should strongly because sometimes there are hidden gremlins in problems like these, and I don't want you to go ruin your player but taking my advice as you would from an LG representative. I do work in the I.T. industry and all of the DVR recorders I have seen just use a normal hard disk with certain filing systems.
Hope this helps, anymore problems, just ask!
There are a number of different RW DVDs out there and your problem could be one of the following:-
That you are not following the instructions
That the discs you arer using are not the correct ones(usually they have a leter or a number on the disc that marks the diference between diferent discs from different manufacturers) I would suggest buying the Phillips discs then that cancels that problem.
That the leads you are using are incorrect or faulty.
A fault on the machine.
The last option is that you physically go to either where you bought it or the philipps centre and ask them to show you how to do it. You paid for it so you deserve the service.
I went to look at getting it fixed and wit was going to cost as much as a new device, so I pulled it to bits and found that the rubber band in the DVD player was frail. This meant it didn't have enough strenght to load the disk completely.
I went to a stationary shop and brought a new one the same size and it is perfect.
You will need to be careful and confident pulling it to bits and some of the screws are no standard. good luck.
Alternatively there is a slot under the unit that you can force the DVD mechanism open or closed. A hassle though.
The electronic procedure: Switch off the unit at the wall plug. On
the front panel, hold in the <RECORD> and <EJECT> buttons
at the same time, and keeping them held, switch on the power at the
wall again. Keep holding the buttons until the disc tray opens.
