Any advice on compatibility problems?

We have an RCA DVD player, circa 2000 or so.  Doesn’t play most homemade DVDs…  Is there a way to upgrade these players, or should we just buy a new one?

Probably should look at buying a new one. I have a Sony DVP-NS325 and have had no problems playing home made DVDs.

It’s a great player for a decent price.

No Progressive Scan will mean you’ll want to upgrade soon if you get an HDTV.

Who has the money for one of those.  raspberry

Yeah, that is the downside to my dvd player but I would rather buy a car than an HDTV.

I dont know whats the deal with that kinda stuff. Youd thing that if it’d play a DVD, its play a burned DVD. Maybe its just another way to burn more money out your pockets. Thanks corprate america!!!

Laserdisc players used those record sized discs that looked like an audio cd surface.
