Next week I will have a new PC that is designed to be a speed demon for high end video graphics. My intent is to transfer video to DVD to play on my Panny HDRPTV. I have had the Toshiba SD 5109 DVD player for several years and think it is great. It won't play DVD-R discs however. I need to purchase a DVD drive that will write in one of the many flavors (DVD+RW, DVD-RW etc.) I also need to buy a DVD player that will play one of the many flavors of DVD. I will buy the DVD player first. Any suggestions on a DVD player that will handle one or more types of writable or rewritable media for DVD? I am trying to find something inexpensive inasmuch as I have just spent a few dollars on the computer and video camera. I already have a AV receiver to process sound so that is not necessary. I plan to keep the Toshiba 5109.
