    I am looking for a DVD Player that will play DVD-R and +R's in different kinds of media e.g. TDK, Fugi, Legacy, etc. Walmart used to sell a Syphonic DVD Player that did this but they are no longer available.

    You could try one of wal-marts cheaper "progressive scan" dvd players. Usually the cheapies play dvd-/+r and rw's better than the fancier high $$ ones. If it don't play your backups,take it back for another model. Usually no questions asked on returns.
    Good Luck

    thanks for the replys. Regarding the question about how much I am will to spend for a dvd player... about $100. The Symphonic player that I bought at Walmart was about $40 and does a great job in playing all kinds of dvd media. Unfortunately, they no longer sell this player and its replacement doesnt play media like maxwell, fugi, TDK etc.

    I will take a look at the Regent HT500.

    Thanks again.

    I have several DVD players and the cheapest and best for playing DVD-R, DVD+r's is the samsung PV241 it runs no more than $60 and is progressive scan. This player reads anything. I have some older burns that are on crappy discs and this thing reads them.

    I'd stay away from the Sony's. I have one and it plays most discs. But once in a blue moon it has issues with a disc burnt with x copy plat. It skips from chapter to chapter finishing the disc in about 10 seconds. Now If I take that disc and play it on my samsung toshiba, or Panasonic it plays fine. I like sony products but not their DVD players becasue of that reason. One out of 50 doing that is not worth it. Also if I reburn the backup movie using shrink it works fine.
