Philips threads should be posted in the Philips DVD Recorder and Player Forum



Because we think there is enough interest in Philips devices to start a Philips DVD Recorder Forum we have created the Philips DVD Recorder and Player Forum. From now on please post threads related to that brand in that forum. Most Philips threads located in this forum have been moved to there and new threads will be moved there as well in the future.

We have candidates that would like to become moderator of this forum, if you feel you are the right person to moderate the Philips Forum then please feel free to PM me.


Just purchased a new Philips DVD8631 and installed on my Dell Dimension with XP. Everything seems to be fine. EXCEPT! I burned a CD and it worked fine. Then I tried to burn a DVD, and I keep getting this ERROR message: “'Please insert a blank DVD-R/RW or DVD+R/RW disk”"

I have a new blank DVD-R in the Phillips DVD player. WHY am I getting this message? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
