first off, thanx to ScubaPete for helping out w/ my last post. sorry about the multipost. here's the problem, i have a panasonic dvd home theater system and owner's manual says it DOES NOT play the following: DVD w/ unsuitable region #, DVD-audio, PAL system discs, DVD-ROM, DVD-R, DVD-RAM, +RW, DVD-RW, DIVX video disc, CD-rom, VSD, CDV, CD-G, CVD, SACD, SVCD, photo CD, etc. WHEW! and yes it actually says "etc." i'll be honest, i don't even know what some of these are! now get this, so far i've burned 3 dvd's using dvd shrink and dvd decrypter on my cpu (w/ dual layer dvd+/-rw drive) using memorex dvd+rw discs and they ALL have played on my dvd player! now, notice the owner's manual says it won't play +RW. it doesn't specifically say "DVD"+RW. is that what they mean anyway(sorry if that's a stupid ques.) also, it doesn't list DVD+R among those it won't play. should i take a chance and start using DVD+R's or keep spending a little more for the RW's since they are working? any opinions out there? thanx.
