SOURCE: Won't play dvds.
Hi, All. I found this discussion based on a Google search because I was having the same exact problem with playing Superbad on my Philips DVDR3400 after renting the movie 3 times and confirming the DVD played on my computer, etc. The good news is I was able to fix this problem. Go to Philips support at http://www.support.philips.com/support/html/index_us_en.html From that link, enter the model number of your DVD player into Search. Select your player from the list that comes up, and on the next page select "software & drivers" link at the left. This will take you to the firmware upgrade for your exact model which updates the software that runs your DVD player (also, when trying to find your exact model..such as mine was DVDR3400/37...you can find it on the label on the underside of your DVD player or it is on a sticker on the back side of your user manual). This takes you to both the link for the software download as well as detailed instructions on how to do it which are very clear. That includes how to use your remote to check that the version you will upgrade to is newer than the current version on your DVD. This was quite easy so long as you are comfortable with downloading the software to your PC, unzipping and then ripping to a recordable CD disc. You will then put that dics into your DVD which will read the files and upgrade itself. The whole upgrade process on the DVD itself took about 5 minutes. When it was done rebooting after it upgraded, I powered it off/on. Then I played Superbad, laughed and had a good time ;)

Recordings from your DVD recorder should play on other DVD players as long as you finalize the recording on your recorder.
A PC should recognise an un-finalized, but only in a DVD writer drive.
There is a firmware upgrade available for this model. Follow this link and select your particular country version DVDR3320/XX
Select Software & Drivers and click on the link to the zip file.
Follow the on-screen instructions.

You have to finalize the disc. if the disc goes to the end it will finalize the disc automatically. If there is some part of the disc not used you have to do it yourself. IN DVD MODE PRESS SETUP, THEN DISC EDIT, THEN FINALIZE. FINALLY PRESS YES. That should do it.

I have to agree with XELIAM regarding finishing the disk, under the DVD "FUNCTIONS" selection from the remote. I also use the SLYSOFT products to transfer my videos to what ever other mode of video I wish to have, whether iPOD (MP4), or DIVX (AVI) or loads of other options. Slysoft makes a GREAT product
