Just a note to let you all know that I have FINALLY found a compatible combination. After trying 2 burners, the first Sony DRW-18U and now the LG 4160B and 3 DVD players, 1st being the Trio, then DVX and now Philips. The LG burner and Philips DVP532K are perfect together…I have not had one coaster and all the DVDs play beautifully with not one skip using Laser DVD-r at $28.00 a spindle of 50! Whilst I know this combination may not work for everything, just thought I would let you know as it is really hard to find a perfect combination!!
