Does anyone else have this issue? My Hd-A1 won't play my backup SD DVD's. I am usingMemorez DVD-R's, and an LG Burner. But I wondered if anyone else had this issue. The disc's play fine on my other DVD Players, and my old Original XBOX.


Any pointers, greatly appreciated.

I have no problems playing burned DVD-R discs on my A1 or XA1.


I strictly use Verbatim brand discs and will not burn faster than 4X (Burning speed is a major factor when it comes to compatibility issues). After doing this for seven years now, I have tried every other brand of discs, and Verbatim brand have been the most reliable; I have some now approaching six years old that still play fine. My second choice would be Taiyo Yuden brand. Both can be purchased on line for very reasonable prices.


I use AnyDVD and DVDClone (both by Slysoft) for creating backups, and my burners are Plextor and BenQ brand.


For serious archival material, I rely on Panasonic brand RAM discs. I have never had one fail in seven years.


Hope this helps

I had problems too with my HD-A1. I only tried a couple of discs though.


Maxell DVD-R and a Pioneer laptop burner. These discs worked fine in my 6 year-old Panasonic DVD player.


The NEC drive in the HD-A1 seems VERY picky about media.

I'll try new media. I only burn at 2x, as the Drive won;t recognise the media as being capable of anything else with the Memorex media.

I used Roxio Toast.




Discs from Toast work in every single player I've tried, including very picky ones.

My A1 plays plays everything I throw at it -- which includes Taiyo Yuden -r & +r dvd5s, and fujifilm and verbatim +r dvd9s -- just like both my Oppo 971 and my Philips 642.


And ya, I would definitely stay away from memorex. Only the best for my backups!

My HD-A1 plays about 20% of burned dvds. Very dissapoining.
