    Hi,

    Just like to say that this is my first post and what an invaluable forumn this is.

    I am really interested in purchasing a Panasonic S75 dvd player.

    However I am confused as to their playback capabilities.
    I require a player that can playback DVD RAM and one of either DVD +RW / DVD -RW.

    The Panasonic's website indicates that this player will playback (amongst other things) DVD RAM and DVD -R only. However I have read in a number of places which includes the What Video review that this player will playback all formats i.e. DVD RAM / DVD +/- R and DVD +/- RW.

    Can somebody who actually owns one of these players please confirm exactly what these things can do.

    Thanks
    Simon:confused:

    I have already look at the dvdrhelp site, but does offer some differing opinions although most that had tested DVD RAM said it did playback.

    Surely there must be some people using this site who have the S75 - what say you??

    The S75 is a HighMAT player so will play all formats/all supported file types: DVD-RAM, DVD+RW, DVD+R, DVD-RW and DVD-R (and CD-R/-RW).

    I emailed Panasonic the other day and they they the player does not play DVD + / - RW.

    I am going to buy one of these players and see what happens!

    Thanks for your replies.

    They only say that because they don't officially support those formats. There have been several reports of people using + disks on these machines without problems.

    I have a panny S35 and it plays DVD +/-

    not sure about RW though. So I would have thought that the S75 would, but cant say for sure.

    Regards,
