I hopeful someone on this thread can help…
I have a Philips DVDR 75/17, and I’ve had it for 2 years.
For some reason, I can play recorded DVDs and some “store bought” DVDs, but I cannot Play STAR WARS III nor Lava Girl and Shark Boy…and likely others.
I have noticed the DVDR struggling at times, so today I bought one of those Philips DVDR cleaners and ran it. I am not sure the problems are linked, but welcome advice.
**When it tries to start these newer movies, it tells me ‘no disc present’.
Summary: it plays some DVDs but not all. The ones it will not play are not ‘contraband’ or bought in the Far East…
Overall Satisfaction with the recorder WAS high…8.
