    I recently purchased a Panasonic DVD-RV60 player, and found that it can't play, amongst others, CD-RW, DVD-R, and CD-RW (which it says it might damage) discs. Is there an all-round DVD player which can play the above discs as well as straight DVD and audio CD? The reason I am asking is that I am sure that in the future my audio collection will include more and more CD-R and RW discs, and with the new DVD burners, those too.
    Thanks - Nigel

    Sometimes it is worth experimenting, some CDRs play and others don't, so look for diferent types of dye being used.

    You might be really unlucky and nothing works. As for DVD recording at the moment the blanks cost more than films, and even if the proces dropped I think you would find extreme problems with duplicating an entire disc, but you would probably be able to get the film off.

    Hi,

    The mainstream brands that always deliver CDR playback capabilitys are Philips(marantz) and of course Pioneer. I am not sure about Hitachi and Denon. But I am sure that Sony,Toshiba and it seems the Panasonic don't have this feature.
    But the more expensive models mostly have this capabiliy.
    For example the Sony 7700.

    If you want to buy a replacenment for the panny 60. I suggest you check out the pioneer 636.
    i always like Pioneer better than Phillips
