Just tried to play a VCD I made minutes before on my PC. The DVD player/recorder recognizes it, brings up the screen where I can choose which section I want to play but has this message "PBC ON" briefly on the screen and also on the dvd player/recorder readout.
I can find nothing in the manual concerning what PBC is, nor do any of the remote (or player) buttons respond.

According to the official description of that recorder, you should have no problem, this is from the description for the DMRES15:
Recordable DVD Media
Record your favorite shows onto DVD-RW, DVD-R, DVD+RW, and DVD-RAM DVD discs. The DMR-ES15 is also compatible with DVD+R Double layer media and provides up to 14 hours of media recording.
Don't worry about limited playback capabilities, the DMR-ES15 can play DVD, DVD-RW (VR Mode), DVD-RW (Video Mode), DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD+RW, DVD-RAM, VCD and CD-DA discs. Also, you can play your favorite songs from CDs or MP3 files, and JPEG images.
You should burn your videos to a video format that should be compatible with your DVD player to get play. Some video formats will not be able to play to a certain DVD if the DVD player does not support it. You should burn your videos to VCD format to avoid problem because almost DVD nowadays have backward compatibility for all VCD movies. Hope this could help you..Please don't forget to rate me..:-) Thanks..
try cleaning the lens but be careful when doing this,also your dvd machine may not be compatible with other disc formats, normal dvd players can only play dvd video and some vcd. Not all dvd players will play DVD-R/Rw or DVD+R/Rw discs, check your owners manual.
Hi there, Make sure you Finalize the disc when you are done recording, otherwise it won't be read on other players or computers. To do this you go to Setup> Disc and choose Finalize. It takes a few minutes per disc, don't turn off the player while it it finalizing. In the same Setup menu you can choose an option to autofinalize the disc when you are done recording, so you do not have to to it manually each time.
dvd players play only certain kinds of discs and formats. Older ones played -R's, most newer ones play everything. You have to look in manual, or on box before you buy player. If it won't play -R,+R, -RW,and +RW's I pass it by. Find out if your player is limited to certain discs. Some will play VCD and some will not. Some will play DIVX and some will not etc. Stick to the discs and formats your particular player is compatible with.
