[qanda]This thread is about the Philips DVDR3545V DVD recorder/VCR. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]I have tried to play a Verbatim DVD+R DL on my Philips DVDR3545. The DVD was made from files (torrented). The DVD was written by Nero 6. The original movie was NTSC as is the DVD player.
The opening menu opens without problem. However, when “play” is selected, the player just runs through the chapters (without playing the movie) according to the player’s display then goes back to the opening menu. I then tried to go into the chapter menu. Then nothing happens.
The manual does say it will play DVD+R DL. Verbatim blanks are recommended according to the manual. I had a hard time even burning Memorex DVD+R DLs.
This DVD+R DL will play on a Philips DVP642 without problem.
The reason I’d like to play it on the DVDR3545 rather than the DVP642 is that the former has HDMI output while the DVP642 only has component output.
Can anyone offer suggestions for solving this problem?
