I have a Pioneer Dvr 645H. I remember being able to play original VCDs and DVDs of movies on it when I first bought it. For the past several weeks, I’ve only been using it to record TV shows in the HDD. Now I want to play VCDs and DVDs of movies bought straight from stores but I keep getting the error message “incompatible or unreadable disc”. I tried loading the VCD and DVD discs in both HDD and DVD modes but got the same message. However, there’s no error message when I load the player with blank DVD-R’s. It’s really frustrating! I can’t understand how it can’t function as a regular DVD/VCD player! Your help will be very much appreciated. Thanks.
I searched this and other forums and “unreadable disc” errors others got were from loading DVD-R’s on the players. Note that my problem is with loading the player with orig DVDs or VCDs of, say, Harry Potter, bought from video stores.

Hmmm… yes that’s really strange. I’ll transfer this to the Pioneer section of DVD Recorder & Home Entertainment, where you might get more specialist help.
Thanks. No prob.
