You might check your burner to see if it is working correctly. If you are using the same media and it worked before, perhaps the burner or the burning software is not working correctly.

Phillips dvd player will not recognise all dvd disc`s,will only play some dvd`s,and all cd`s.what coiuld be the problem?


The dvd's and cd's that aren't recognized might not be " finalized". Were they store bought or copied by someone with a dvd/cd burner ? When burning dvd's they need to be finalized so that other dvd players other than the one it was burned on can recognize them. Hope this helps.

I have just burned digital photos to dvd+rw disc.When I insert the disc into our Philips blue ray player (BDP3000) it reads ''unknown disc.''Why is this? The manual states that these discs should be...


Chances are the disk is not finalized. dvd+r and dvd+rw need to be finalized before they can be viewed on any other player than the one they were made on. If you have the instructions to the burner, then it should be easy to learn how to finalize the disc. If not, I would suggest googling the burner and find online instructions. Good luck!

I burn dvd -r and dvd+r and it will not play on it


It is possible that the disks are not finalized. You may need to configure it to auto finalize, which is off by default. It would be impossible to have more than one title on a disk if you always auto finalized. Check your manual, and finalize your disks. Many times marginal disks will play OK in the unit they were recorded on, but not so well in other players. The media (disks) could be the problem as well. On a side note, the DR410 will NOT burn DL (dual layer) disks. I hope this helps and good luck.

Player freezes at same time on almost every disk, and recorder programs won't play on anything else.


The last problem is probably because you have not ?finalized? the DVD yet. Basically what that does is modify how the data is stored on the DVD so that a normal DVD player can read it. It also prevents you from modifying or recording to the disk any more so make sure you?re done before performing this. The part about the freezing is more complex, are these commercially recorded DVDs or something someone else recorded?
