I would really like a dvd burner that plays mpeg 1, wmv, divx, xvid, mov, vcd, svcd, xvcd, and even flv files but I'd settle just for Divx.
So does the Panasonic DMR-ES15S play Divx clips burned onto a cdr/w as advertized or not?
I still haven't gotten my tax return back yet, but when I do, the ES15, Toshiba D-R2 or the Toshiba D-RW2 are my top 3 choices. If the Panasonic will play Divx files as advertised, then it would probably be my top choice.
The R2 is only $130, but I've heard that it may have problems finalizing discs and makes many coasters.
Anyway, back to the subject, anyone tried playing DIVX clips burned onto a CDR?
