Question about Onkyo DV-CP500 Multi-disc DVD Player

1 Answer

Plays MP3 files at high speed

DVDs and .wav files play fine, but MP3 files play at a high speed, as if they're being played on a turntable that revolves too quickly. 

It started off as an occasional problem, and has gotten progressively worse.  The MP3s being played too are almost all converted from the original CDs. 

Any suggestions appreciated.

Try newest firmware. It should work for all Onkyo DVD-players:

The player plays most every DVDs I burnt. However, I bought identical DVD-R and DVD+R from Staples and SPIN-X brands and it says DVDs unknown. What is the problem?

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.

Hi camonk2004,

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.

Kind Regards,

Attempting to play bittorrent dvds.

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.
