Some discs burned on PC wont play on standalone Philips dvd recorder / player , they are read as being blank . A couple have played once then been read as blank when reinserted anytime later . All will play as expected on Playstation and portable dvd player . Philips suggested resetting the player to factory defaults but that made no difference . Has anybody else experienced such a problem , or can you suggest what might be the cause ?
Thank you for responding . The brands used were Sony and Maxell . The problem is with my Philips dvd player / recorder . All burned discs play fine on other machines . Sony dvds are read as blank . Some Maxell dvds have played once but are read as blank on subsequent attempts to play . I realise that there are technical issues concerning how various discs are manufactured and that not all will produce desirable results , depending upon the equipment used , however , what puzzles me is the fact that this machine can ‘see’ the content of a disc once but then have a problem reading it again .
