    Hi

    Any one know what DVD-R media will work in my Tosh 330e DVD player? I made a home movie and put it on a Maxell DVD-R - the Tosh wont read it, but my PS2, PC and cheap JVC DVD player all play it fine!!!

    I tried another brand of DVD-R last night, the DVD worked on my JVC DVD, PS2 and PC, but again not on my Toshiba :suicide:

    I think I will contact them to see what they recommend.

    That'll teach me to buy cheapo dvd-r's!!! But surely if Toshiba say it will play DVD-R's and it doesn't, then its not doing what it is advertised as being able to do?

    I tested my 330 and it played unbranded disks from Novatech and Dabs without failure.

    These machines seem very hit and miss! I'm considering going down to RS (can't believe I'm considering it!!!) and buying a Pioneer 575. Although it'll be cheaper for me to buy new and more expensive dvd'rs' than the one's I bought...

    I've fixed the problem I was having! I went out and bought a Pioneer 575!!! So far this has proved to be automatically multi region but it has played all my DVD-r's perfectly, it has the newest firmware (So it loads quicker and some other stuff) but the actual A/V quality is a vast improvement over the Tosh SD330e, which was by no means a poor quality player!

    In fact I think I'm going to have to re callibrate the system as it is now completely different!

    Well worth £99 and the only regret I have is that I didn't buy one before!!!
