does your player accept the type of discs that you have?

there are 2 basic formats: dvd-r & dvd+r

not all machines like both formats.

There is also dvd-ram, dvd-rw & dvd+rw - but they're a different matter.

According to this:

Your player will do these:

[FONT=Verdana, Arial][SIZE=2]Playback: DVD, DVD+RW , DVD+R , DVD-RW , DVD-R , VCD (video CD), CD, CD-R, CD-RW, Data CD, 8cm DVD+RW/DVD-RW/DVD-R [/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana, Arial][SIZE=2]Recording: DVD+RW , DVD+R , DVD+R DL[/SIZE][/FONT]

so it will play anything, but will only record to + format discs - unfortunately, your dvd minus discs will not be compatable!
