first of all i'm a newbie and i'm very impressed w/ the wealth of info i've seen here so far. i especially like ScubaPete's guide/instructions on how to do dvd backups. that being said, i need some help and so far haven't been able to find an answer in the forums. if someone could help or point me in the right direction i'd appreciate it. after spending over $1000 on a new computer w/ the ability to burn dvd's, i found out that my panasonic home theater dvd player/receiver WILL NOT play DVD-ROM, DVD-R, DVD-RAM, DVD+RW, DVD-RW, DIVX VIDEO DISC, CD-ROM, VSD, CDV, CVD, SVCD and a few others. DVD+R was NOT listed. can i assume that it WILL play those? or is there another format i can burn a dvd in that might work? btw, i bought a pack of DVD+RW and burned one before realizing my dvd player wouldn't play it. hope i can get a refund or exchange(fingers crossed)! thanx in advance.
