I have read on various forums that the Pacific 1001 and 1002 from Asda play just about any disc thrown at them. Thats why I recentley bought a 1001. Well it will not play my DVD-R discs. I have tried the same discs on other peoples players and they play fine on Cyberhome, Dansai and a few other makes. So it seems there is a compatibility issue or my 1001 has a fault. I chose the 1001 over the 1002 because it is "region free out of the box" and because it got good reveiws. The DVD-R discs either play for a few minutes before locking up or reverting back to the start or sometimes the picture freezes or breaks up into blocks. Have any other users experienced problems or is my player faulty?
