I get the opening credits of a movie and then the screen returns to standby. I have a copy of 'Iwo Jima' which won't play unless it is the Japanese version. It seems to randomly select which part of the opening blurb to play. Sometimes I get a language choice, sometimes not. Sometimes I get the piracy warning, sometimes not... Help!

Those discs have a very strong copy protection mechanism to avoid making digital copies on PC systems but some DVD players won't play them because of that, if you have the original movie, download a copy from the internet, burn it to a dvd-r disc and play it. It's perfectly legal because you already bought the movie. The downloaded copies have no copy protection and will play better than the original. The PHILIPS DVD-Home theater players are specially picky about non-standar disk like the one you're trying to watch.
Have you tried a different brand of recordable disk? Some do not record as well as others. Also......copied Dvds don't last as long as a factory recorded disk. If the disks are older disks....that may be it. Other factors are ....your laser may be weak or dusty in the DVD player. Do your disks have paper labels? BINGO! The paper has a different expansion rate than the plastic disk and will almost always bend the disk in the heat of the player......interrupting the playing of the disk....... usually about half way through it.......pop the disk into the freezer for a few minutes....then return it to your player to finish your viewing. Never use paper labels. Never leave your DVD player on unless you are using it.
most of the movie if download from the net protected my different formating keeping people from burning and selling coppies. as long as your dvd play dvd is working fine. I got lots of those downloaded movies from a friend myself some play and some dont. I bet you if you go through most of your copy dvd some will play and some dont. Your sysytem may read some dvd VS mine may read some of your's that you system dont reads, you will not find a unit" DVD" will deformat the protection copy rights. I have 850.00 unit almost top of the line still wont read lots of copy DVD.
