Hi all, I've recently started burning my own home made films onto DVD. I'm having teething problems but this compatibility issues between my DVD... Anyway, what bothers me is last year my mate brought round a DVD he had acquired from a dodgy market. He put it in my Player (old Sony DVD S7000) and it played perfectly. What confused me was why did it work? My player is old and refuses to play DVD-R or DVD+R correctly, so what media was this dodgy disc that my mate had bought? It played in everything. Surely it could not have been a similar one to 'proper' ones we buy in shops. So what media was it, I can't believe that this dodgy market stall is knocking out anything more expensive that DVD-R/DVD+R. Am I missing something? I'm aware of different brands that may play better, but through my own research, I've discovered it makes little difference on my player. Any help appreciated, it means my old player may be able to play some of my home films. Thanks.
