I have just receivd SD-340E from amazon and must say that it looked good but not any more. It is mentioned on the website that the unit has S-Video out but it is does not have one, I tried to play 2-3 mp3 CDs (Samsung, EMTec CD-Rs) and only one was played properly. Sometimes said 'invalid disc' and sometimes recognised as VCD1.1. Ojne of the DVDs played fine, have not tried all. The menus donot look impressive. I tried to play a DivX but player says 'invalid disk', recognised as VCD1.1. I would give it one more try but am sure that there will be many more problems. The manual says CDs should be 650MB/74 minutes only but one of my 800MB CDs played after trying more than once. Could this be the reason?
