I recently bought a Panasonic DMR E50EBS DVD recorder and have been copying my old videos. I can play them on my Power DVD and Windows Media Player, but when I try to play them on my old DVD player, which is a Pacific, bought from ASDA, it doesn't work. The file format shows up as a MPEG.
Can anyone advise me what I can do, if anything, that will allow me to play these on my old player.

You need to update your DVD player. My DVD player is multiformat and (so far) plays anything I throw at it.

Further to the above postings,

Try the site above to check your DVD compatibility. The DVD-R discs that I write with the E60B, which is the E50B with Firewire connection, results in OK on most DVD stand alones.

Further to this, some DVD ROMs fitted to a PC will play DVD RAM recorded on the Panasonic as long as a RAM driver is loaded. Such as the Toshiba SD M1612.

Depending on your model you should be able to play DVD-R if it is a 750/1000/1002. The 750 is listed as some DVD-R.

If all else fails try another make of media.

Sorry about double post, big hangup.

PS,

as a further thought, are you able to select the MPEG file on your player. If so select and press play.

The Pacific is meant to be Multi Format eg dvd-r, cd-r, cd-rw, mp3.
The discs I have are Big Pockets dvd-r 4.7gb General Purpose, 1x/2x/4x.
when I put the dvd into the Pacific it displays the message LOADING and thats it - nothing happens.

Just a wild shot in the dark, are you finalising the discs in the E50BS?

Apart from that I can only suggest that you take your finalised disc to some alternative DVD player and try it on that. Do you have a friendly neighbour?

Failing that can only suggest a change of media.

Yes we are finalising the DVDs on the E50EBS. Could this be causing the problem?

Tried playing on the Pacific 1002 before finalising, this didn't work either.

Doen't have a DVD writer on my computer only player and have no problems playing on that.

No pacey it will not cause a problem, you do need to finalise before trying to play on DVD Stand alone.

Can only suspect that even though your DVD is listed as capable, it must have a problem.

Have you tried your discs on neighbour's/friend's DVD?

The discs that I use are Ritek,Datasafe,Packard Bell and Traxdata. All DVD-R, mostly X2 but someX4. No problems with any of them on Yello 800,Scan 2500,Philips.

pacey,

I have the same player as yourself, and get this message when inserting a VCD,

Try pressing the "1" button on the remote control, and then the play button a couple of seconds later.
