Philips DVDR3005 Problem

I have a Philips DVDR3305 - and,yes I know that Philips dvdr's are not exactly popular on here but I just wanted a cheapie and it cost under £100 on ebay.

It records fine and plays back all recordings ok and also plays back all shop bought discs fine.

But it has problems playing any other home burnt discs ie. films on dvd+r or dvd-r or backup movies etc.

I have a number of these which have always played back on all other machines but on this one it freezes up on every single one after 40-60 minutes or whenever I try and search thru chapters.

Any ideas?

Following on from this - someone I have spoken to asked if it is only on media burnt on a PC. Thinking about it i would say this is the problem as it plays everything else.

Am I right in thinking that DVD recorders have problems playing this type of disc whereas it should play ok on a dvd player?? And have I stumbled across something else I'd been wondering about for a while in my technical ignorance - is this what is known as DIVX capable?

And are there any DVD+ recorders out there that are particularly good at playing this sort of burnt disc?
