    Already made one mistake in ordering Panny E85, until I realised that Sony DAV S550 would only play DVD-R discs which meant I would be throwing away loads of discs after one use. Intend to order Tosh RDX S32 now, but need to know that Sony will play rewriteable discs before I go ahead.

    Can anyone confirm or offer other advice.

    Thanks

    Best thing is to take a disk to a local supplier's shop and ask to try it - that way, you will know for sure.

    Cheers,

    Okay - Let's see if I can offer any help - if you could get access to a DAV S550 anywhere, I'll record something on to a -RW disk and send it you so you could try it - only thing is you'd need to let me know whether you wanted it formatted in VR or Video mode and, of course, I would appreciate if you returned the disk when you had completed your trials - I have lots of -R disks but only a few -RW ones.

    If this suits you, please let me know and also where to post the disk to.
    Cheers,

    Martin.

    Well with a quick look Here shows that the DAV S550 can play all 4 of the DVD recordable disks.

    I have the DAVC 770 - which is just the multidisk changer version of the 550 and it plays -R / -RW and +RW fine (+R untested by me but I'm sure that would work).
