Good day all,
great site - hope this bit works for me!!
I've had a Panasonic DMR-EZ25 for just over a year; yup guarantee's finished! I make my own backups of movie dvds (don't judge me please).
A few days ago the DVD player/recorder just seemed to decide it would no longer play any of my back-ups - none of them, regardless of whether I'd burnt them a year ago or a month ago. Back up discs that played in it last week are now being rejected with "Unsupported Format". All the original movies continue to play. I use Verbatim for my copies, I have changed nothing - it is the Panny that has changed.
So in summary it seems to have just decided that discs it had no problem playing last week are now unnacceptable - and please bear in mind these are exactly the same discs not new copies of them. The copied discs play fine in my Dad's dvd player/recorder (also a panasonic) and still play on my PC. I tried restoring the player to factory settings but it is still not playing the copied discs.
Fingers crossed & peace be upon you
