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 ;)

I called the manufacturer. They admitted to improper instructions. They provided me a fix to their copying protocol and it worked. Also, they game me instructions on how to fix already copied tapes. It works well and I would have to say I was impressed with their customer/technical service.

Here is a link to the manual:
It specifically lists disc types that you cannot use to record - it specifically states that you can't use DVD-R discs for recording on this unit. DVD+R or DVD+RW are the only disc types you can use for recording on this unit.

Videoman7, thanks for your suggestions. I had done all of those things before my post of July 9 - none of which had worked - but your feedback made me rethink about giving up. It turns out that it's a hit and miss game with each erased DVD-RW disc. In my renewed attempts, none of the 5 or so erased DVD-RWs discs got past 0% formatting, followed by the error message for each one. But I kept rotating the same 5 discs in the DVD drive, and suddenly one of them continued to format until it reached 100%, at which point the copying process from the tape began. Go figure. Not a very efficient way to copy a tape to DVD, but since my need to do this is far and few between, I've changed my mind about tossing the machine.

The DVD-burner inside the DVDR520H is a very cheap LiteOn-burner (model: DDW451S). It would be better to replace the burner, but it would be difficult to find a product which will fit in the limited space. I'm having troubles with burning DVD's since I had bought this peace of ****. The machine have been repaired three times, but it is still not functioning properly. Shame on Philips for assembling such a weak product and their very bad support!
