    Hi. I own a Grundig GDV210A DVD Player.

    Apparently, it seems it is relunctant to play CDR media, so I am wondering if anybody out there knows whether or not it is possible to convert it to do so.

    Help Please.

    Thanks

    Sorry,but i think you are out of luck here.Most of the newer DVD players are designed to be CDR/RW compatible,its to do with how the laser focuses on the disc.It can be a useful thing to have but if yours doesnt do it then i dont think it ever will.

    Apparently Princo CDR's are the only ones that will work on Sony 700 series DVD's so they may be worth a go. My 735 won't play CDR's but will play any CDRW, bit more expensive but getting cheaper now and you can always re-record when you get bored.

    CD-R/W requires compatible hardware, so no upgrades here. You can however as suggested try CD-RW media.

    A new type of CD-R dye which is a light green is coming onto the market soon! It has the following advantages

    - 20 Times Longer Life than a normal CD-R in which the quality of the burn stays the same as the day it was written!
    - Compatible with "ALL" CD-ROM Drives and DVD Players
    - High Burn Speeds

    I've heard this on many CD-R dedicated sites. I'm not sure how much the discs are going to be but i'm looking forward to seeing them.

    I'll let you know if i find more!
