On my Philips DVD recorder, it actually tells you if the DVD is the wrong region - however this may be different on some players. A lot of DVD players/recorders can be unlocked to multi region by pressing a combination of buttons. If you post the make & model of your DVD recorder on here, I'll find out the code that unlocks it. If the problem still carries on after this, then I'd guess that the recorder is knackered. Also check for the obvious such as loose cables etc.
Fruit Bat & rodriguez - thanks to both.I had made no physical alteration when loss occurred. No idea of make/model (plate says simply`DVD-RW` then `RW DVD+R DL`then `Compact Disc Rewritable (UltraSpeed)` ) - no name shown. Still plays MPEG files. Any help? Bob
