Discs will not play on any other machine - STILL NOT SOLVED
I posted this before, but the "solution" posted was just a comment, not a solution, so I'm posting it again in case anyone can help:
This is a cool recorder, but I've found that the discs I make will ONLY
play on this machine. I cannot play them on any other DVD player,
whether stand-alone or in a computer.
Needless to say, that makes the discs practically worthless. Anybody
else have this problem? Is there a way to find out what kind of
encoding is used, so as to figure out if the data is retrievable?
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

comment says -R just wanted to clarify, alot of players have trouble playing the -R discs. If you have your booklet for system, it should say in there otherwise they usually put a little sticker label, by the DVD tray with what file formats and discs it will play.
Did you finalize the discs on the unit that converted and burned them? That can often be a critical step before moving the disc to another player. (Depending on the unit, you can find the command buried in the Settings or Disc Settings menu. If you add a comment with the machine used to duplicate the VHS tape to DVD, I may know where the command is on your unit.)
If you did finalize the discs, check the media for scratches and make sure that the DVD is compatible with the other players. (Some will have issues with DVD +R and others will have issues with DVD -R discs.)
What device are you trying to play the file back on? What type of disc (commercial video or homemade)? If homemade, what device wrote to the discs?
If these are commercial discs, they may be PAL discs and will not play on a NTSC video player. You'd need a different player.
If these are homemade discs made on another device, check if the discs were finalized by that device. If the video was made on a computer, try a different format of the video files; check the DVD specifications.
I hope this helps. Please add comments with additional information on the problem if you need more help.
This player is compactable with DVDs, ACDs, Video CDS, CDs and JPEG files. You can't play the following type of discs. Laser discs, CD-1, CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, or discs recorded using other boradcast standards (ie PAL or SECAM); CDG discs.
If you want the user manual to this player, inform me by fixya comment, along with your email address. I'll send a copy of the user manual to you by return mail. It has all details. I can't send it to you by this window, as it does not allow ma to upload PDF files by it. http://www.dataentryjobs.us/67948.html
The problem itself has not been solved but after more investigation I have found out that this is currently un-repairable.
This is because the console itself has a hardware blueray drive failure due to manditory firmware 3.00 released by Sony and there is currently no fix in place.
From what I can see on the net it looks like Sony maybe being sued over this issue. Sony has also stated that they are now looking into this firmware update to see what went wrong, they have not yet made any further comment.
