I have a pretty nice surround system (for our budget), with the main player being a Pioneer DV-563A. For Chritsmas, the family got me an RCA DVD burner, model number DRC8320N. Along with it, they bought DVD+R discs, the type the salesman suggested.
Being naive, I transferred a VHS tape to a disc, only to find it won’t play in my Pioneer player. After doing some research, I discovered that there are actually different formats of discs. I read that Pioneer developed the DVD-R, and upon reading my manual, discovered that that was the only type of format that my player supported.
Armed with this, I bought a 100 pack of DVD-Rs, and recorded another tape. Lo and behold, this one doesn’t play in the Pioneer either! Now I have 10 discs of one type, 100 of the other, and none of them will work in the player connected to my system! I tried both types in my son’s PS3, and the $30 player I have in the bedroom; they BOTH work in BOTH players!
Soooooooo…what am I doing wrong? I know the Pioneer isn’t the newest, or the most expensive model, but according to what I read, the discs should work.
I don’t want to have to watch our home recordings in our bedroom…
