Dear All,

I am trying to find out some information about the above DVD recorder.

I already have a panasonic DVD player (RV31) and a Proline DVD player (VCR combi) but I am trying to find out if DVDs created in the Pioneer recorder will play okay on these players.

I understand they have to be finalised but how can I tell (if it is possible at all) that these players will play discs finalised on the recorder?

Many Thanks for any help.

I have had a pioneer 433 for a couple of weeks now. An excellent machine and very user friendly. I have burnt a couple of DVDs and they have played OK on both my daughters machines (at this moment I have no idea what they are!!!) They play also on my other player, Bose Lifestyle. Hoipe this helps.

I have a 630, which is more or less the same as a 433 just with a bigger hard drive. I have burned lots of discs. These have played on my bedroom Toshiba, my Goodmans portable, my friends LG, a work colleagues Hitachi, my mates Technics home cinema system, another work colleagues Sony.

So as you can see, its a very compatible machine

Thanks for the responses. It certainly seems to be a good machine and I am swayed towards getting one. Are your successful recordings mainly -R or both -RW and -R and what make of discs were they?

Thanks again.

My discs that played on all the above mentioned machines were all -R. I have done the occasional -RW which when recorded in video mode and finalised played perfectly on my bedroom Toshiba. However, I don't particularly like tying up my -RWs in this way, as -Rs are so cheap now. I use Ridisc 8x -R and Datawrite Titanium 8x -R. Never had any failures (used to have a 420 and no failures on that either). For RWs I use TDK, Verbatim and Ridisc. Perfect recordings every time. Never any glitches.

Not sure if you know this, but -RW recorded in VR mode will only play back on machines that have the RW compatible logo on them. Record them in this mode for day to day recording. These recording are easily edited. -RW recorded in video mode and finalised will play back on most new machines. Older machines may be a bit fussy. This mode is generally used for longer term recording and is like a video recording, in that you can't really edit it or do anything to it. All -R discs record in video mode. And to play this mode discs in other machines, you have to finalise them. If you already know this, I apologise for restating it. If you were not aware, then it is handy to know.

Thanks for the help regarding this I finally got the 433H and am pleased to report both the -RW and -R discs work in both DVD players, Proline VCR/DVD combi and Panasonic player. The discs I tried are Sony.
