I have one of the very first wharfedale 750 players. It has worked very well for me. It does not play rce coded dvd's which causes a few issues. I have recently been given a dvd-r disc with my daughters dance show on it. It will not play in my machine. It does not even get past the load phase. It does play on my neigbours machine which is a more recent budget machine bought from Makro (cannot remember the make, may be proline). Does anyone know if the 750 will play dvd-r discs?
