    Hi.

    Just wondering if anyone else has had this issue with the above recorder.

    It can play CD-R's with MP3's on, but not DVD-R's. The discs can play on PC, but not on the recorder. Tried several diff types of media (Datawrite to mention).


    Any firmware updates available or anything? Or settings?

    Cheers.

    This is entirely normal. Whilst some machines are coming to the market that can play any file they recognise on any disc they can read (so called HighMAT players - the Panasonic S97 is an example of one) the Pioneer 420 is not one of them. Unfortunately no DVD recorder is.
