I've had success playing DVD+RW burned on a HP DVD-writer 200i in the DV-5900M. Disc was burned using Sonic's MyDVD program, video files included 720x480 AVI and MPEG files as well as VCD-resolution AVI files. Menus and chapters all worked fine. I've only done three discs, all on Memorex DVD+RW media - your mileage may vary. There is a post on VCDhelp.com that claims DVD-RW compatibility for the 5900M as well.

DVD+-R R/W Compatibility
I have had success with DVD+RW and DVD-R with both premium and budget media.
The unit will play DVD's authored with non standard video and audio. eg. I burn DVD-R's of Tivo extracted video which is 480x480 with MP2 audio, and they play fine on my 5900M.
Kenwood support's official position is that the 5900 does not support DVD+-R R/W, but it does, they just don't want to help diagnose our authoring problems.

Re: DVD-R and DVD+R on DV-5900M
I have gotten DVD+RW disks to play on my 5050M from my Phillips 985 but it is clearly touchier than other players. By touchy, I mean that the higher chapters sometimes have a tougher time syncing up.
I've defintely had problems with higher chapters on DVD-R copies, this seems to somehow be related back to the original recording, i.e. a copy works or it doesn't.
I copy from a Showstopper HS2000 to the Phillips 985 and have used a PC to make a cheapy DVD-R on a few occasions. Now, I just use inexpensive DVD-RWs and DVD+Rs.
I have yet to try a DVD+R on the 5050 however.

I've been using primarily Ritek 2x DVD-R media (spindles of 100 for about $120 via internet) and they play back fine in my 5900M. I burn my discs in a 2x Toshiba drive and a 2x Pioneer drive. The only time I've gotten choppy/poor playback was when I was experimenting with SVCD which the 5900M doesn't support. Recordable VCDs and DVDs are playing back fine for me. Kris
