SOURCE: dvd recorder wont finalize etc

The DVD drive works harder when trying to record the info faster. As the unit ages, tracking is less precise. DVD-R copies occur at 4-16X real time. Try DVD-RW disks which copy slower (now that the price has dropped substantially), and you may find that your aging drive can still copy programs from the HD to the DVD.

SOURCE: DVD RW stucked - stall the whole system.

Hi, I found this site today cos I had a similar problem. To cut a long story short I found a slot on the bottom of the machine, below the disc tray, that has a white lever in it. After removing the power source I moved the lever to the side and the tray opened manually so I could remove the disc. It seems It was a duff DVDR as other discs now work fine. Good luck !

Hi all.
I tried the stop & eject on my 3460h but didnt work. However the manual option cured it. It must be a dodgy disc as i tried to play it again but the same happened again. Scrapped the disc.

Hi again

Well done!

I am so pleased to hear that you have restored the DMR E55 and for taking the trouble to let me know. It's always satisfying to achieve something like that and I guess you'll get even more pleasure from using it now than you did before. They are good machines and well worth the effort to keep them going.

Thanks again and kind regards

SOURCE: Won't recognise DVD disk.

Your system needs a portion of the HDD to swap and stream for the purpose of playing and recording DVDs while CDs are small enough in their data size to play without the minimal size of the space left on your HDD which should be backed up and then erased to give you that brand new feeling.

Try it and get back to me with any problems.

Thanks for asking.

Hello, My Philips DVDR7300H has a recording error after burning to dvd - burns VERY Slowly, and then gets hung on 95% - then "Disk Error" and the disk is then unreadable. It reads other previously recorded...


This happens with a number of drives.
1. DVD Dye type - but as you have tried DVDs from a batch that works seems unlikely.
2. Some drives dont like +R or -R If using +R try -R etc. Also some drives have problems with RW's used previously
3. Drive head travel is faulty. Sometimes only recording a max of 4Gb or 90% on a disk works OK.
Good Luck

My recorder DVDR 3330H has the "finalize" in the menu disk but I cannot click on it .


Probably you don't have a DVD+/-R disc inserted but a DVD+/-RW. A rewritable disc can't be finalised and doesn't have to be.

Unknown disk type


Press 'Disc Menu' and wait for 'no disc' to appear on the screen. Eject the tray by pressing the 'open / close' button on front of the recorder. Enter the following numbers very slowly on the remote control ' 0086000 ' Press ' OK ' button on your remote control. Close the tray by pressing ' open / close ' button on the front of the recorder. You can check this has worked by pressing ' 0009 OK ' on your remote after the tray has closed. A display will pop up on screen showing the Region as 0. This means you should be able to play discs from all Regions. If this doesn't work the first time! try again! Hope this helps!!

Dvdr3455/37 stopped working


I had the same problem - and here is how I fixed it.

When it was booting/re-booting I ejected the disk (I needed it out anyway since I assumed the unit was dead.) After ejecting the disk it display "load" on the unit. I read in another message board that this means the unit is looking for the firmware disk. I went to http://www.usasupport.philips.com/productDocuments.html?ProductCode=DVDR3455H/37&subCat=DVD_HARDDISK_RECORDERS_SU_US_CONSUMER

I followed the instructions to make the "upgrade CD" and inserted into my DVR. My unit then powered up normally. I went ahead and upgraded the software and it did happen again (the re-boot cycle) until I entered the date/time.
