Since it's a Philips, it certainly accepts the "DVD plus"/"DVD+" format. But it very well may also accept other formats. Refer to your Philips drive manual for the list. Or, as "askmee" alluded to, the simplest method is to simply look on the face of your Philips drive itself. Most drives mark on its face the formats it accepts.

That being said, I hope you're still curious enough to take a look at http://asia.cnet.com/reviews/pcperipherals/printerfriendly.htm?AT=39181082-39050023t-39000052c-20000061q-1. Although three years old, it still esentially holds up as one of the best, and well written, primers outlining most fundamental aspect of CD/DVD burning. Particularly note sections:

  • Format wars
  • Which discs to buy
Hope this adds to your growing list of knowledge tools you keep in your CD/DVD compartment.

You should use DVD+R for one-time recording or DVD+RW if you want to use the disc over. The player will play back any type.

Trying to play a DVD I get 'Unkown' on the DVD and Not supported disk type' on the screen - and this with a DVD that I have watched before.


Each DVD player only supports either Minus- or Plus+ as an example R- Disks or R+ Disks some DVD players support both. If you get lack of support that player only supports the other type.

Failure to record


I had the same problem on my Philips 3400. Changing media worked. Try RW media if R does not work.

WON'T PLAY BURN DVD'S


There are two main families of DVD's, the minus (DVD-R/RW) and the plus (DVD+R/W). The most popular is the minus and almost all players can access this types. The newer and better DVD (plus) is not as popular like the minus. SOme players will not be able to read the plus. Check the DVD that you used, if it is DVD+R, try to use DVD-R

Formating problem


Are you using dvd-rw(+) or dvd-rw(-). Have you tried updating the firmware? http://www.emersonaudiovideo.com/pdf/om/EWR10D4.pdf Minus (-R/-RW) and Plus (+R/+RW) The formats endorsed by the DVD Forum (www.dvdforum.org) have a hyphen in their names and are verbalized as "DVD Minus R" or "DVD Dash R" (DVD-R) and "DVD Minus RW" or "DVD Dash RW" (DVD-RW). The competing formats from the DVD+RW Alliance (www.dvdrw.com) use a plus sign: "DVD Plus R" (DVD+R) and "DVD Plus RW" (DVD+RW). Starting in 2002, drives that supported both Minus and Plus formats were introduced. Make sure you are using the proper dvd disc. Let me know what happens. Good Luck, Tim
