I've seen several threads hint that the DV-5900M can play SVCD discs. Can anyone who owns one give a definitive answer?


Thanks.

Nothing is definitive. Even if 5 people posted that their DV5900 played SVCD, that would not garantee that yours will. My Sony 7700 supports SVCD, many people have posted that theirs plays them, yet mine does not. Go figure......

Fair answer... www.vcdhelp.com validates your statement regarding sporadic svcd support on players.


It is often dependent on

1. the quality/maker of the disc

2. burning software

3. rate of the mpg2 encode


I was just wondering if anyone has been successful at all playing svcds on a 5900...

To answer myself...


It does not play svcd format discs. I tried 2 svcd discs in the player at a local audio / video store and they both were very choppy.

The DV-5900M I currently have does indeed play SVCD discs made on my DVR-3000 CD-R recorder. EVery once in a while it freezes, but it's seldom.
