Question about Philips DVDR3505/37 DVD Recorder
Why is it that when I record anything on the DVDR of this Philips DVDR 3505 I can play it back only on this unit and not on any other DVD player? After recording 2 hrs worth of video it will say swomething about useing settings for playback on a regular DVD player and then it says its done. When I play it back on this unit it works fine, but when I give it to somebody else to play or I try to play back on a different DVD player it cant fiind anything. What am I doing wrong?
Hi I am Vortash It very much sounds like you are not finalizing your disks .. any dvd recorder that makes a disc from computer dvd's to free standing unit s work on the same software principle , however the programs do differ slightly and finalisation stanard izes the disc to run on any player, without it another recorder will either not recognize the disk or the language it is written in . Read that message at the end and you will see the option to finalize or it will say do you wish to be able to play this on another dvd or it will do it automatically if you set it to do so in the menu on some sets .
if your player isnt doing this it is not set to do so in the menu settings disks can be finalized at any time after recording providing they are not over filled as the finalization process will take up at least 10-12 mb some do it in more some might do it in less depending on the software hope this helps Regards vortash
