    dvdrhelp entries suggest it plays DVD-R (not -RW) & that it plays both +R & RW.

    Don't have one myself that is just from the above website.

    Ive tried DVD-R and DVD+RW on this player and it refuses to accept the DVD and ejects it after about 4 seconds.

    Anyone had any success with DVD-R on theirs?

    Off topis but I hate the contrast setting menu. Zero contrast setting is too bright on darks scenes. If you put it on contrast plaus 1 igets darker. If you put it on contrast minus one. It also gets darker. The scale system is faulty!! Can anyone else confirm this on theirs?

    Philip's being a champion of the DVD+R format, that would be the logical disc to try.

    Just an update to say the 963sa is NOT compatible with DVD-RW.

    Just need to check DVD-R. I hope it is compatible as -R are still cheaper than +R.

    As a side note I tried the -RW DVD in my old Sony 300 DVD player and it played no problems.
