Ipower DVD compatability

  argus1 08:14 12 Oct 2005

I use a Packard Bell Ipower 5542 when away from home, I occasionally played pre recorded DVD films on it, it cannot record DVDs. I would like to play recorded TV programmes, but my first attempts have failed.
A DVD-ram disc recorded on a Panasonic recorder was not recognised, a DVD-R disc recorded on same machine played in media player with sound but no picture an error message appeared "this pin cannot use the supplied media type"
Does anyone know of a DVD TV recorder and disc type that would be compatable with my laptop.
