    Take a look at the specs in the manual/web site and see if the disks are listed as compatible.
    Or borrow a burnt disk from friend/retailer and try it, but be carefull as some media might work and others wont:mad:

    As you can see from my above comments, there are no hard and fast rules as to what will/wont work :rolleyes: . This is new technology and therefore it is down to trial and error. New DVD players are better than the old ones at playing different media types.

    Check out this months What Video. They have tested a range of blank DVDs to see the compatibility and it would seem its as much the disks used as the players that are prone to incompatibilty.
