This player can't recognize DVDs that have a write speed that is greater than 16X (and it sometimes has problems with discs above 8X). I would only buy brands that the manual reccomends as tested. This player also won't accepted what are called "Variable" or "Variable Speed" DVDs.
It's interesting that your DVD player was purchased in Russia but plays Region 1 DVDs. Region 1 is North America. Does your Player also play Russian DVDs (region 5)? If so, then it has probably been modified to play DVDs from multiple regions.
Check the back side of the DVD player - the rear panel should have a Region number on it. If the region number is 1, then try playing a Region 5 DVD. If it reads the DVD, then the modification that was done in Russia will probably allow it to read any DVD. IF the Region 5 DVD won't play (or if it is ejected automatically), then your player's region control os still intact, and it will only play DVDs from the same region as the one listed on the rear panel of the player (or DVDs marked "ALL").
I hope this helps - please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.
If by bit-torrents you mean avi video files the DVD recorder must state it will play divX files. But if the files are encoded with a codec other than divX or X-vid then they may not play directly on any standalone DVD. If the files you have downloaded are mpg2 files there is a chance they may play. Lite-on do a nice small compact model that plays divX, or the Toshiba D-R17DTKB plays most things and has 1080p upscaling so you can connect it to an HDTV and upscale any slightly poor quality files you may of downloaded.
