I have two questions about viewing jpegs on DVD players, using CD-R discs. 1. Why do some DVD players, which say that they do accept CD-R's, not play them. I have two friends that have Panasonic players, which both say that they accept CD-R's. However, it says something about 'depending on recording conditions'. My Philips CD-R's don't play on either Panasonics, but do play on my Cambridge Audio and on my friend's Woolworths cheapo player? 2. I sent a Philips CD-R disc to my Grandpa in the USA, to view photos on his DVD player. In the manual for his DVD player it says that 'some CD-R discs may be incompatible. When he tries to play my disc, it says on his TV screen, 'incompatible disc'. I phoned up the DVD player manufacturer, RCA, and they said that it's because blank CD-R's are region coded and my disc is from Europe. Is this true? Are blank discs region coded? If I get one sent to me from the USA and burn them here, will that work?
