I know the 656a is quite old now but I am about to buy a DVD writer to transfer my miniDV films onto DVD. I know that there can be probs with DVD's reading various formats (I found that it wouldn't view photos saved from daughters digital camera to CD) JPEG I think these would be? So has anybody else got this DVD and played DVD's burned from a PC? If so what format where they and if poss what make of disc as I know that this can sometimes cause a prob too. Thanks for any advice. ps Is there anyway that this thread can go in Camcorders as well?
