RW discs and standalone players

Ive bought 2 sets of DVD±RW discs now(+RW Maxell and -RW Memorex) and both refuse to play xvid files in my standalone player. The player cant even read the discs. I realize that RW have less compatibility, but is there a brand that works best? If not is there a standalone player that will play everything thrown at it?
my player is JVC XVN650B
burner is HP DVD940e

Welcome to CDF :slight_smile:

I would go for Verbatim for most media, even more so for RW. Give some of those a try and hopefully it’ll help. :slight_smile:

Whilst it may not be relevant to you but my Pioneer DVD recorder will only play Divx files when on a DVD-RW , not on a DVD+RW.

BTW I only use Verbatims as [B]Arachne[/B] suggests.
