    couldn't find your DVD player on vcdhelp.com's DVD player guide.. but, I did find a bunch within the same series as yours, the CV series.. nobody is giving these DVD players very good ratings for VCD and SVCD playback.. check it out here:

    http://www.vcdhelp.com/dvdplayers.php?DVDname=panasonic+cv&DVDselect=&Search=Search

    click on the sections on the right under reports and comments, click view *x* reports, where x=number of reports..

    you may have more luck using CD-RW discs though.. Most of the reports I read said that it reads those fine. my girlfriend's mother has a panasonic 5 DVD changer, and it only does CD-RW discs and only VCD, no SVCD.. I don't like panasonic DVD players, but I swear by their other products, phones, etc..

    Best of luck!

    the only CD-RW media I have tried have been Memorex and Comp-USA brand. honestly, I think the Comp-USA brand is actually better, I never got a bad batch from them, but the last time I bought Memorex half of the discs wouldn't even burn, and the rest only burnt once and never again.. don't think I will be buying them again.. anyhow, best of luck in your adventure!

    I bought some Mercury CDRW and they were good even though I had never heard of the brand. I have just started on a 10 pack of Memorex *gulp* hope they're good and I have used the Infiniti brand with some all good results.

    I havent had any problems with burning onto TDK CD-R disks. Ive used them for music and putting my pic's onto them to watch on my DVD player.
    I use VCDeasy as the program for burning and converting the formats.
    As far as my CD writer I have HP CD-writer 9100 series as my burner.

    timofee,

    We need to be more accurate:
    -What DVD?
    -TDKs are made by several manufacturers so their quality varies - therefore we need some ATIP info on the TDKs.

    In regards to your previous question, TDK is a company. TDK electronics out of NY.
    I use the DATA CD-R for computer burning.
    80 mins, 700MB.
    Thanks.

    Timofee,

    I know TDK is a company - I have been sponsored by them. What we need is disc manufacturer indentification since TDKs have been made at least by these manufactuerers:

    -Taiyo Yuden (good)
    -Ritek (good)
    -TDK Corp (varies, some bad)
    -CMC magnetics (usually bad)

    So telling us that you use TDK 800mb doesn't tell us ANYTHING yet. You need to identify them with this: http://www.cd-rw.org/software/cdr_software/cdr_tools/nero_cd_speed.cfm or this http://www.cd-rw.org/software/cdr_software/cdr_tools/cdridentifier.cfm . Same goes to Jeanice and her Verbatims ;)

    Just a side note about what VCDJunkie said about Memorex CD-RWs. I also have had problems with them. These were sold in a 5-pack and rated 4x. Haven't been able to burn them at all. AVOID! The specific disc details are posted in the CD-RW thread in this forum.

    I used vertabim CD-Rs, (the colored ones from Sams) and also got no menu. But dont think that is cause of the CD.
