    the downloaded file type isn't compatible with the Sony DVD player and it is with the JVC. you can convert the file to work on the Sony yes

    sounds like your sony dvd player don't like dvd-r, go to videohelp.com and put your model number of your sony dvd player and it will tell you what your player will or won't play as far as formats and disk type, good luck

    Check your TV standard, PAL/NTSC. My JVC plays either, Sony's usually do not.

    You can usually run a VOB through Gspot and it will tell you what it is.

    when you say can't download the movies are you saying from some web site? are the files torrents, also does your soney play dvd-r dvd's? did you go to the site i said earlyer? did you have to convert the files that you downloaded?
