I have burned a DVD+R disk but it doesn't seem to be recognised by my stand alone player. The player can read DVD, CDRW, VCD and even MP3 so I was a bit suprised at this. It's a panasonic player. The disk burned was a data disk containing MP3's, I've done the same previously with CD and it's worked fine.

Does anybody know if there is anything in particular I should look out for when burning the disk, or it is just simply that my player won't play DVD+ and that's that!

Mine will play all formats except this, same with the player in my pc. So maybe that's your problem.

I would try the panasonic web site to see if there is any info on your particular player.

What is the model of the standalone Panasonic?

In theory, all +-R disc should be playable on all DVD reader, but some brand of disc have better compitable than others. Panasonic is one of companies who do not subscribe to +R stand in their PC product. I do not know if this is the case for normal DVD player. Can you try differnet make (brand) of +R/RW disc? Maybe try -R disc? I should mention, the +R disc I produced use a LiteOn 811s can be read on a Panasonic (Mathsha) DVD-RAW drive.
