Greetings Carl - There are several possibilities, one being that you are using incompatible discs (DVD+R instead if DVD-R as required). The other is that this player is well known for being finicky about even discs of the right type (see above), working well with some brands, so-so with other brands and not at all with still others.

The most likely thing I suspect is that after recording material you are not finalizing the discs. If they're not finalized they will only play on the Samsung and not other devices. This is demonstrated on page 84 of the user manual:

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.

When I record to dvd I can't plan on any other DVD player - can play on the toshiba dvr but nothing else?


Have you closed the recording? If the recording is not closed out, you will have trouble playing the DVD in other players.

It could also be that your DVD player you are trying to play on is too old or not designed to use burned DVDs. I also have trouble playing some burned DVD's in older DVD players, it has to do with how the recording is done, and there is nothing you can do about it. For example, I have a Sony 5 disc changer that came with a surround sound set up... nice DVD player, but will NOT handle DVDs burned on stand alone DVD burners or burned from a PC. It reads the DVD, and displays on the front of the player that it is not a DVD, and shows nothing on the TV.

Recorded DVD won't play in my computer.


Probably because your PC can't read DVD -R or DVD +R disc, only DVD.

Dvd recorder can't read disc it previously read


Take the Disc out and put it aside. You must clean the Laser Eye, and clean dust and other matter from inside your recorder. Clean Eye with rubbibg alcohol and q-tip. A regular CD/DVD cleaner disc will not work. After cleaning, reinsert your Disc and Finalize it.
