SOURCE: Cone of HDRW720 Hard Disk

In order to use this software you need motherboard with two IDE ports.
You have to use both primary IDE ports, HD must be single mode...
IDE1 Primary - Your HD
IDE1 Secondary - Don't use it
IDE2 Primary - Your HD
IDE2 Secondary - Don't use it
Because it was so long ago I don't remember exact details, and it takes time to reconfigure PC...
But if need help let me know, and I will get you step by step instructions...

SOURCE: Philips DVD hard drive recorder HDRW720 locks up

Do you have a disc locked up inside?

I found that there IS a manual release for the disc tray UNDERNEATH the unit. It is a sort of toggle lever that you have to slide to the other side and that releases the disc. The Manual does not even mention this manual release lever!

Also, it may be hidden or covered by a paper like cover.

The program you tried to save was copyright protected (I believe by Macrovision). The "C" stands for copyright. You will be able to pause and review the program while it is in your buffer but won't be able to retrieve it later from your hard drive once your buffer has run out.

My Philips DVD Recorder does not accept a DVD disc shows no disk. The DVD disc does not revolve. A CD disc revolves but shows junknown


Could be that you are using the wrong type of DVD ? There are two formats DVD+R, DVD+RW etc and DVD-R, DVD-RW etc. Some machines are capable of using either, others can use one of the two formats.
My other suggestion is that some machines are picky about which manufacturer's DVDs they will use.

Need to save Honeymoon recording but HDRW 720 won't save archive disc. How can I salvage my recording?


I am assuming that the unit turned off while you were using it because of power failure... Battery low.
The file is still there but it is corrupt and you should be able to retrieve it at least 90% of it.

I don't mind taking a look at it for you. we do have the hardware software needed to do the task and it is no charge if we cannot get back the file.

Dvd recorder


Hi Nickstart, start checking if the problem is related with the kind of Disk and test on different brands, disk types.
Even if a recorder is supposed to work fine on both +R, -R etc. , often you find out, that due to error correction methor, a device worksd well on one or the other type.

Your DVD supports the following DVDs -R, -RW, -RAM, all -R disks are supported both on 3'' and 5''.
On +R it just writes regular DVD +R, DVD +RW and mini DVD +R are not listed in DVD specs, therefore are not supported on writing.
When your unit records DVD +R it changes the format to DVD-V, The usint does not support DVD+RV.

I assume it works better with -R

I often get troubles with many DVD low price brands, try testing some good ones like Verbatim, TDK, Sony , Philips etc.

See also the manual here, at page 6 and 7 it also says: "Play may be impossible on some DVD-RW (DVD Video Recording format), +RW, CD-R or CD-RW discs due to the condition of the
recording."

Hope this had been helpful, test both a good brand DVD-R and a Good brand DVD+R.
If it still has problems when finalizing the CD, then it can be the usual lens problem, Or the DVD you are writing is too big in size and your player has problem on the final phase of DVD writing. If Data nearly takes all the 4.7 Gb allowed, there won't be enough space to finalize the DVD.

HDRW720 will only do demo mode


The error code has a Nucleus Group and Number followed by an Error Code.
The Nucleus 2100 references
DS_HDD_Communication
Check the communication between the digital board and the hard disk drive by querying the device type of the device type of the hard disk.
The Hard drive 282206200034 is no $399.80 available from partstore.com which you can just drop in since it is formatted. If you can find a hard disk which is rare due to the small size no one buys, it can be formatted to just drop it in. You will need the hard drive ( 120GB ATA), the PC communication cable 312278590017 $22.75 and the Service DVD 312278590710 $36.96 which will allow you to format the hard disk for the unit. I would do this for you but you might have other problems with the system which can only be found with more diagnostics after the drive is installed. Or it could be a drop in and go.
For the unit which is stuck in trade (demo) mode,
Unplug the unit.
Simultaneously hold the Stop + Open close while plugging in the unit.
