The Disc Settings menu is accessed from the Disc Index Picture screen (so it's not as easily accessed as on other brands of DVD recorders). When you first put a recorded disc in the device, you'll see this index screen. At this point you need to press the UP arrow on the remote repeatedly until the disc content menu appears. This is a screen with the disc name, amount of recording time used and the date of the first recording. Then press the Right arrow button to get to the Disc Settings menu. Use the Down Arrow to reach the line that reads Finalise Disc. Then press OK and then press OK a second time to confirm the action.

The documentation for the DVDR3330H is available from Philips here: http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/cpindex.pl?slg=en&scy=hu&ctn=DVDR3330H/02 . See page 52 for the screen captures. The Finalise steps are on page 53.

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: philips dvp 3020 dvd player will not play, the "no disc" sighn keeps coming on.

Try this. Wait for the "no disc" sign to appear, and only after that load the dvd. The 3020 I have works alright when I use this method.

SOURCE: My dvd model is philips dvp 3005 and it is in standby mode

my dvd player did the same problem. and i solved this just with a screw driver:) if your dvd player s guaranty finished!! switch off the player and open the screws which r 2 on sides and 3 behind the dvd. open the cover and take off the two group of cables on the chipset which are on the mechanical part side! (mechanical side: dvd driver) than plug the cables again to their socket. its done! close all and go on ! i hope this will solve your problem as mine...

CAN RECORD FROM VCR TO DVD+R, CAN PLAY DVD ON SAME, BUT CANNOT PLAY ON OTHER DISC PLAYERS. I THINK THAT THIS IS BECAUSE I AM NOT FINALIZING CORRECTLY. WHEN AND HOW DO I FINALIZE A NEWLY RECORDED DISC?...

Usually you finalize the disc after loading it with all the desired content (leaving a bit of space for the finalization). So if you are recording a TV show, depending on the setting (SP, LP, XP), you might finalize the disc after recording 4 1/2 shows. The How may vary by model but on my DVD recorder, I find the finalize command in the same menu area as adding a title and initializing a DVD-RW disc. So I press Setup to enter the OSD menu, then go down to Disc (looks like an optical disc) then right arrow to enter the sub menu. Then press down to Disc Finalize and the right arrow again and press enter. Select OK and Enter again. (RW discs can be unfinalized to add more content.) Then wait until the process is done.

I hope this helps.

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.

Can't figure out how to finalize, I record fine but can't find anything to finalize it, I have no manual, thanks for any help. Magnavox MWR20V6 Jim

Insert the dvd you want to finalize. When the menu loads press Stop and then press Setup on your remote control. Scroll down to disc edit and press the Enter or OK button. You should see the word Finalize there, select it and then it will ask to Finalize Yes or No. Select Yes and it should finalize your disc perfectly and play on any player.

Dvdr3576h will record on dvd+r but will not play on other devices

You will need to finalize the discs on the Philips. I know the manual says that +r may auto-finalize, but I found that finalization sometimes fails on the first attempt. Go into the menu for the Philips, and select the Edit Disc -> Finalize option. Once finalized, your disc should play in other players.

Recorded dvds wont play in other dvd players

You have to finalize the disc. if the disc goes to the end it will finalize the disc automatically. If there is some part of the disc not used you have to do it yourself. IN DVD MODE PRESS SETUP, THEN DISC EDIT, THEN FINALIZE. FINALLY PRESS YES. That should do it.

DVD will not finalize

I have a Zenith XBR413 that I have a problem with when I copy from VCR tapes to DVD-R discs. After I copy them, I can finalize the disc using the SETUP button on the remote and then choosing the very bottom disc icon at the bottom of the menu screen. It then leads you through the finalization procedure. But the disc will still not play on any DVD player but the XBR413
