This is very simple. you just have to remember to finalize the disc. doing this stops you making further recordings on the disk but allows you to play it in other devices. to finallize the disk. just go to the filalise disk option in the "top menu".

I have recorded on a Verbatim DVD+RW disc on my Philips 3305 DVDR but it will not play back on my friend's Panasonic DMR-EX98VEB. My recorder will not finalise/make compatible the disc. Why?


Could be that the disk itself is incompatible with your friend's machine. Or your buddies machine may be starting to exhibit playback issues. Try another disk and see what happens.

Why doesn't my recorded dvd-r movies play on my magnavox dvd player


Does your DVD player support that version of DVD disk? Not all players will handle DVD-R. Check the manual for compatibility.
Try recording to DVD+R then see if your player will play it.
Also, in what format (.avi, .flv, .mov, etc.) was the item recorded and is your player able to handle that format? Again, check the manual for compatibility.

Cant get pre-recorded disc's to play in my recorder it comes up with the message "this disc will neither play or record" any ideas?


hello,

the reason the recorder comes up with the message "this disc wont play or record" simply is that the format of the disc is not compatible with the player.

1. check the format of the recorded disc,
2. and check the formats the recorder can play to confirm this.

take care

Dvds recorded on video to dvd recorder wont play elsewhere


Mosr DVD recorders have a "compatible" setting or require you to "finalise" the disc. Check that is being done.

It's also worth checking that the laptop will play other DVDs sometimes you need a codec.

What is +vr and how do I remove it


VR mode or Video Recording mode is a feature on stand-alone consumer and computer DVD recorders that allows video recording and editing on a DVD rewriteable disc.
In VR mode, users can create and rename titles for the scenes. Also, if a scene is deleted, the space allocated by it will be utilized later without the need of reformatting a disc.
If the user would like to record on the same disc again in later time, on VR mode, users may eject the disc and it will not be finalized by the recorder until it is manually initiated. For the sake of comparison, any DVD disc recorded in VR's competitor V mode (or Video mode) will be automatically finalized before it is ejected by the recorder. Disc finalization is still required if the disc formatted for VR mode will be played in another DVD player.
Currently, users can only record in VR mode with the use of DVD-RW, DVD-RAM and DVD+RW discs, (updated in 2000 to accommodate DVD-R (General)) [DVD players marked “RW compatible” and “DVD Multi” can play DVD-VR recorded discs] and on some recorders, also on hard-disk drives.
Blu-ray Disc and HD DVD also support VR mode-like features.

Accordingly when DVD recorders became a viable option the features offered by <Video Mode> were minimal - the linear structure did not allow post recording editting or non-linear playback. Thus the DVD Forum devised Video Recording (VR) mode.

Unlike DVD-Video this uses a much simplier file structure that allows non-linear modification to the recorded data. This means features such as partial erase, editting, playlists, simulataneous record/playback, mixing of different media types (JPEG, MPEG1/2/4, MP3, WMA, WMV etc) and, in future models, dual record are all possible."

That basically summerises the differences: video is a linear recording that should end up DVD-Video compatible, VR is a digital recording mode that allows HDD-like functionality on disc.

Do you need to always be able play your recorded DVD-RW discs on other DVD Players? If yes you have to use Video Mode, although some players will play VR mode discs, and you can test this easily by giving it a go.

The main differences are:

DVD Video mode on DVD-RW

Plus points: Provides good compatibility (70% plus). That’s the only plus, plain and simple.

Negative Points: Only simple linear editing possible, really just hiding a title. You can reuse space only when you delete the last title or completely reformat but lose everything in the process. No defect management. Requires finalisation to play in other DVD Players. No possibility of time-slip, i.e. recording and playing back at the same time.

DVD VR mode (Video Recording)

Plus points: Better use of recording rates by having intermediate resolutions. Defect management so reliable. Time-slip on 2 speed media if supported by the recorder, allowing record and playback at the same time. Non-linear editing. Any space freed is reused automatically (think hard-drive or Mini-Disc) and added to the remaining time.

Negative Points: Not very compatible with existing DVD Players, plain and simple.

Of course if you have a hard-drive based recorder then all the negatives are wiped out, as you use VR mode on the hard-drive which gives you all the pluses of VR mode, then record to DVD-RW in Video Mode to give you the compatibility to play the disc elsewhere.
- A recording on DVD-RAM will always use VR mode
- A recording on DVD-R will always use Video mode
- A recording on DVD-RW can be either Video or VR depending which is set before the recording is made.
- A recording to DVD+RW or DVD+R will always use Video mode
- Many HDD/DVDR combi recorders will record to the HDD in VR mode and allow you to dub (digitally) to DVD-R in Video mode.

Playing a recorded dvd from dvd-vr375 on another dvd player


If you are using DVD-R media, you can record in either V or VR mode.  What is confusing is that if you try to format the media, you only have the choice of VR mode -- and this mode is very well understood by other dvd players, some other records do understand it.  This mode has much better editing capability, but poor compatibility.  If you want compatibility, use the V mode.  The trick is that to do that, you don't format it!   V mode is the default and does not require formatting.  The owners manual says that, but too well hidden if you ask me

How do i copy shows which i have recorded on DVD-R with my philips (DVDR 3305 player/ DVD recorder) to my Macbook pro (I'm using Mac OS X Tiger). The recorded DVD seems to play fine in the philips DVD...


well..the 'shows' you are referring to, may in fact, carry encryption code, making it impossible to play without a license...that's one sure way to make them unplayable, anywhere outside of the DVD player..

Mac's use a different file format than PC compatibles, so that may also be the reason.

Make sure that if this is a disc you recorded that you have finalized it (closed it ) before trying to play on other players.

Also use a high quality DVD-R recordable disc to avoid compatability issues. memorex brand dvd-r is really compatible with many players and recorders.

maybe,
the DVD disc you recorded is not compatible,
if you manually did this, you should have used Nero. or other burning softwares.

try checking on the recording mode of the DVD. V recording mode produces more compatible DVD disc. Stay away from VR mode. You may refer to your manual.
