I burn't a movie to a DVD disc (4.7GB) and try to play it through my NEC DVD HDD player but asking it wants to 'format the disc' and continue to loop, but I can play it on my other NEC DVD player no problem.

The exact model of DVD player matters. Not all models can play a Computer burned disc. There are several types of DVD A factory type DVD in DVD format A burned movie in MPEG format a burned disc in DivX format. Etc. Try burning the disc with a DVD Creator program, not just 'Burn to DVD'. It's not the same thing.
The solution is simple.I rang LG service (so called - LOL) Asked for a fix or reset method. (Which can be done but they won't tell novices how) Got no joy, so now I will bin it,and spend the rest of my days telling people to avoid LG. After all the posts I have since read about the same problem on various LG models,it is obvious their product sucks,they know it does, but won't accept the responsibility. If I stop 4 people buying their ****,that's at least $1000 they miss out on. If the process snowballs,how much then$$ ? It would cost me $120 just to get it to and pick it up from the repair place. Plus parts and labour added. Before buying an LG DVD recorder go online and check out how many dissatisfied customers there are. In short, DO NOT BUY !!
DVD players may not all read the same discs due to the software that was used to burn the discs, scratches on the disks, or the DVD player itself. Also, different discs may be different "regions". If the disc is region-free, it should play universally as long as there are no problems with the disc itself. Sometimes the DVD player cannot decode the image due to bad hardware.
I have an LG RH278 HDD/DVD Recorder, which was suffering from the problem that it could not play any bought DVD movies, which were previously working fine in that same player. It would however play svcd and DVD+R/-R movie discs.
The solution was to replace the laser tray. I found a new LG DVD BD lens LPC-815 laser tray here: http://www.laser-xh.com/en/?act=showproduct&proid=1147
I bought two for $5.50 each. Shipping was $32 (DHL), all together $45.10 (PayPal fees included). Delivery was fast and accurate within 3 working days (China - Sweden).
First you need a player that plays divx if it does then try downloading the movie onto a different disc the dvd-r have never worked on my player even though it says they will the dvd+r sometimes works its a crap shoot.
