    Some of the newer Divx movies won't play on my MWD7006. I updated the codec files on my laptop and they play fine in the Divx player. How do I go about updating the Codec files on my dvd player?



    Thanks!

SOURCE: Philips DVP3140/37 DivX player does

Have you tried upgrading the firmware.
Check first the firmware of your DVD by opening the tray, then press 37 on the remote, and jot down the version of the firmware, then try to find an upgrade to your version or an improvement to it that fixes the original trouble with some DivX files.

SOURCE: my technika dvd player says

goto the free site xvid and download free the software. in it is a bit of software that converts divx to xvid. this may work. trying it as it's free and the software will not do anything to the film converted just the header. as the images is the same. the header changes the postion of sound first to second and image first to second. so that it is in xvid . i.e why do you think xvid is divx backwards. nice one

SOURCE: does not play divx/mpeg4 files on dvd disk!!

The player plays strictly DIVX files, but not variants like XVID (which today is more common since divx became not free).
Divx is actually the same than XVID. After spending days converting my files from xvid to divx, realized that changing only the FOURCC code of the files works.
Look for a program named videoinspector. It allows to edit the fourcc for a video file. for all xvid and variants change the fourcc of the files to DIVX. The change takes a second instead hours of conversion, and movies in xvid that used not to play on this device, now will be played without problems.

Phillips BDP5100 not play BD (unknown disc) but DVD read and play no problem How can i do pls Help me ????


The player detects that the discs contains unauthorized copies of movie titles.

The disc is with a new format which is not yet supported by the player. Some newly released Blu-ray titles in the market apply new disc format which did not exist when the player was manufactured. This leads to playability problem with these discs. This is not a defect of the player and can possibly be solved by firmware upgrade.
The Philips technical team is constantly working on the firmware development to enable the player to play such discs. Installing the latest firmware in your player helps to ensure optimal playback performance. Please visit the support website of your player regularly to check out new firmware release.
Before you update, read the Firmware Upgrade Readme File on the Software and Drivers page. It contains information on playability resolution on discs of particular movie titles.


If the latest firmware is installed in the player and only one disc can't be played, there may be some problems with the disc. It may be defective/scratched.
Another possibility is that the lens of the player is dirty. Try cleaning the disc and the lens with a lens cleaning kit which is available at electronics stores

After a Sk to HD upgrade [which should not have affected my DVD recorder], my Philips DVDR3480 will only play pre-recorded DVDs. For files in divx format, even files originally written on the same...

Hi, please find above your user manual and your service manual below/
http://www.fixdevice.com/smanuals/file/38174.html
OK perhaps you may need to now upgrade the firmware or re-set up the player again using the service mode, please find all this info in these manual above. It may just be co-incidental, or perhaps your laser assembly is going faulty. Often though, it has to do with CODECs not being installed. or activated, you need to check your manuals for information.
I would wonder if the swap out, hasn't reset all your playback settings? Or the Brain, is thinking it is a differing unit now? and setting it up again may just fix your problem. Anyway please use the service and repair manual's troubleshooting procedures you should be able to isolate and hopefully repair your unit.

Get the firmware update from the philips website

Philips GoGear Firmware Upgrade
You need to get the latest firmware upgrade from the Philips website:
1. Go to www.philips.com/support
2. Enter your country/language
3. Enter your model # SA6045 or whatever
4. Click on the link for your exact model # (the one w/o the "B" in it)
5. Click on "Software & Drivers"
6. Download the updated "Device/Firmware Manager"
7. Once installed, open the Philips Device Manager
8. Click on the "Update" tab, then the "Update" button (with your mp3 player connected to the computer, of course)
9. Your Mp3 players firmware will update automatically
If you do not have the latest version of the Philips Device Manager installed (the latest is the version from the Philips website), then clicking the "Update" button will give you a false positive saying "The firmware on your device is already up to date."

Philips DVP3140/37 DivX player does not play certain DivX files. I have the region code as 0. For some DivX files it plays the video but the audio does not work. These work fine on computers.

Major problem


Especially if you have Vista or Windows Media Player 11, the firmware upgrade for this device should resolve that problem. If the firmware fails to update, then perform a Repair through Philips Device Manager first, and retry the Firmware Upgrade.

If you find that the GoGear will not load the firmware upgrade, then:
1) Backup all files on the GoGear (Repair will delete all files on your GoGear)
2) Open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips)
3) Click on the Repair Tab, and look for a msg that says connect the player while holding the volume + button
4) Disconnect the GoGear from the computer and turn the GoGear off - hold in the volume + button and continue to hold it as you reconnect the GoGear to the computer; after holding the volume + button for up to 20 or 30 seconds, a window will open up saying that your device is being repaired (now you can let go of the volume + button); after the repair is successfully complete, your GoGear will be good as new

You will now be able to load the upgrade

Also, if the Philips Device Manager says that your device is already updated with the latest software, then go to: www. usasupport. philips. com,and enter in your model number, SA5125/37, on the next page select SA5125/37 (not "37B"), on the next page click on software and drives, and click on Firmware Upgrade Software - this will ensure that your player really has been given the most current firmware upgrade

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 ;)
