DVD Player cannot play discs

  ajm 12:10 21 Dec 2003

I currently have a DVD player for the TV that can happily play DVD-R that I burn on my Sony DRU500AX. It however would not play +R discs. The model is Toshiba SD-102E. is there another DVD player on the market that can play all formats of discs including ones made by DivX format. Best place to buy them and prices.

Most modern players will play DVD-R discs without any problems, allowing, for example, home movies to be played back. Some, but not all, will play DVD-RW and a few will play DVD-RAM discs. DVD+R and DVD+RW are not DVD formats and only some players will play these discs.

I have a Sony DVD Burner and a Cheap Samsung DVD player connected to the TV, I have spent months burning DVDs in every conceivable format, + & - and have not once got a burned DVD to play at all via the Samsung Player. According to the Samsungs' specs it should happily play anything but it won't read the discs. I have tried different brands / coloured discs, used all the possible burning formats in Nero 6 and ended up with a very large pile of coasters.

So the plan is to hook the computer directly to the TV via a wireless monitor link. The TV is a Sharp LCD and has the monitor socket installed but I need to avoid the miles of wiring involved to get past the wife acceptance factor, hence a wireless link. This will get around all of the problems and I will be able to play any disc the computer can read. In theory?

I could buy a decent DVD player but that would be too easy and far too stress free.

The Kiss range (my son has one and is very pleased with it after doing considerable research into what was best) can be found at:
