    Ok, so i've narrowed down my list of what to buy after returning my Sony Changer. Ive read up at videohelp.com about these but am deadlocked on what to get. Any help as to which one plays more with less hastle regarding disc type or program used to burn. Thanks in advance.

    SANYO DWM-400

    PIONEER DV-270

    PHILLIPS DVP642

    Ok here is my assesment

    SANYO DWM-400 Doesn't play RW media

    PIONEER DV-270 Supports just about everything except DivX

    PHILLIPS DVP642 Supports just about everything except WMA

    So it is up to you what you want to be able to read in each player? I wouldnt get the Sanyo, but the other two would be a decision of whether you want to play Windows Media Audio (WMA) or DivX movies. Saying that most would probably rather have the player that can play DivX, but Pioneer is probably a better brand than phillips and if you don't need DivX capability then the Pioneer would be my choice...

    Have you checked out this one Philips DVP 630? It will play every format just a suggestion

    Im not really worried too much about the formats.. its more a fact of playing my backups fine... i used to have an apex which played everything.. then it died so ibought a sony.. but that played my backups crappy (skipped, froze, jumped chapters, etc).. so the most important thing is to play my backups ok.. most on memorex dvd+r.. thanks again

    Any of those should play your media fine. All I am saying is why not get the one that supports more formats now because you never know later on down the road you may want to play some of those other formats and you will be able to. Not being able to play RW is bad though you may just want to test out burning your dvd's in different ways and don't want to waste your disks doing it so you would use RW disks, but you wouldn't be able to test them out in your player so what good would that do? Just a thought
