DVD Compatible Players information


Some old-model DVD players do not play DVD-R's

In order to avoid disappointment and unnecessary expenses, please make sure that your DVD player can play DVD-R's.

There are thousands of DVD player models.  A list of all compatible/incompatible players on this Web Site would be incomplete and impossible to maintain up to date.

There is a much more accurate method of determining if your player is compatible: get our Test DVD.  If it plays on your machine, you know your machine is compatible.  If it doesn't play, take it to your favorite store, pop it in a DVD player.  If in plays correctly and you like the deck, buy it.  You know with certainty that you will not have any compatibility problems with that deck (and future decks).

How to tell if your DVD player (or the player you plan on buying) plays DVD-R's

Get the Test DVD

The most reliable method: send $5 (deposit) for our "Test DVD".  We'll send you the DVD.  If it plays on your machine, you know all our conversions to DVD will play just fine.  If it doesn't play on your machine, you may be able to get a very cheap unit that will play DVD-R's.  There are many models under $99.  Take the Test DVD  to any retailer and ask them to play the DVD.  If it plays, Bingo!  You found your machine.  After you perform the test, you may return the DVD to us and get your $5 deposit back.

Less reliable methods: look in the DVD player manual (or ask Technical Support of the manufacturer, or the retailer) if the player will play DVD-R's.  Unless you see it printed in the manual, this is less reliable than the "Test CD" because unfortunately some tech support people do not know all the capabilities of their machines.  Even worse, many salespeople have no idea what an DVD-R is and their answer is a guess (I guess they do, ma'am).  Right. . .

Pioneer DVD Players: we have tested a number of DVD players.  One brand played DVD-R's across all models: Pioneer.  If you are unable (or unwilling) to go around testing DVD players, get a Pioneer DVD player.  It is a very good brand and all the models we tested played DVD-R's.
