    Hi I have a RDXS32 & a Plextor PX-708A DVD recorder on my PC.

    I have just compiled a DVD Slide show using ULEAD DVD & CD Picture Show 3 on my PC and burnt it to a TDK DVD-RW. The DVD-RW failed on the Tosh even though I had originally formatted it on the XS32. So I tried it on another disk and it failed as well.

    I can burn DVD-Rs on my PC without a problem that read on both the Tosh and and old Bush DVD player - but not the '-RWs.

    The TDK DVD-RWs burn on the Tosh and playback no problem!

    Has anyone else suffered similar problems? Has anyone got a solution, ideas a work around or any help?

    Thanks for reading.

    Hi

    Correct me if I'm wrong but if you format a DVD-RW on a PC it could render the DVD-RW unusable of some DVD recorders. I have found this to be the case with Sony recorders but as I don't have a Toshiba I can't say for definate.

    A PC formats a DVD-RW using a different format to a DVD recorder i.e. the set top recorder uses VR format.

    This could be the cause of your problem!

    Anyone else care to comment?

    Hi
    Thanks for the thought but as I said in the original the dvd-rw was formatted on the Tosh. XS32.
    I have wondered if the burn speed on the PC could effect the readability on the Tosh.
    Does anyone have the technical knowledge to say whether this could be a factor?
    Thanks for reading.

    Thanks Steve.
    I'll have to experiment - when there's time.
