I have a Toshiba SD-340E player, which seems fine most of the time**, and have just given myself an unbirthday present of a Pioneer DVR-433H recorder. The recorder is great, except that my first offering of a 'Video Mode' dvd from the Pioneer to play on the Toshiba - the Tosh doesnt seem to see the dvd at all. LOADing, then nought. Any ideas? Has anyone come across these two as incompatible? **Once in a while, I have had to retry (maybe twice at worst) on a commercial dvd before it loaded and 'fired-up' into the opening menu.
