Sorry, not sure where to put this thread since it's not computer related.


Does anyone know what DVD formats are supported on the Sony DAV-S300 HTK?
I can't seem to find the manual for the thing and can't find it online either. I also have a feeling that the DVD formats won't be mentioned in the user manuals anyway, because this machine came on to the market before the DVD writers became widely available to consumers.

Any ideas?

I have a toshiba that will not play any type of burned disc. Thre is a firmware upgrade that will allow it to play certain types of burnable discs. It has to do with two things as per Toshiba technical dept.

1) Focal length
2) Reflective-refractive and or absorbtion of LED light.

I was told that some media will not be read as the focal length for the dye to the reflective surface is out of spec. And that the difference between the "burned" dye and the "unburned" dye isn't enough for the photo sensor to pick up the code. As it will not absorb or defract enough light.

Ming, check the same site, and see if your DVD has a hack, sometimes this will let you play DVD with no region limitations among other stuff.

I would like to... but never heard of most of those listed. Probably not available in the UK.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
