    How can I tell if I have that format. I'm thinking I do - the dvd isn't that old.
    Thanks

In most cases burned DVD's are recorded in Divx format. Thus your dvd player must be divx compatible. Your friends dvd player probably is.

    really no way to tell unless you ask the dvd creator. The one way you can tell is to play it thru your computers dvd player. If it is a divx then windows media player will load the divx codec

Just purchased this Magnavox DVD/VCR combo (ZV427MG9 A), bought in USA. Plays okay (video and audio) with HDMI output but, plays only video (no audio) with either set of component audio output RCA jacks. ...


I hope you are connecting 5 RCA jacks when using the component video out. HDMI cable carries both audio and video over one single cable but the component video has 5 jacks, 3 for video ( Red/Blue/Green ) and 2 for audio ( Red/White ).

Magnavox DP170MW8B DVD region code


After getting clarification from Fixya I can pass the links below to you to check yourself

Some players are harder than others to do this but you may want to
try here or here
Comments:
Toshiba's and JVC's are the harder ones to do

I use a Phillips myself as it is not only cheaper but has much more going for it than many of the higher end units. i throw anything at it and it just plays

The older the unit that harder it is to do the region free thing with.
I let my EX have the panasonic (big grin)

If you cant find a fix then look at the codes available for cheaper brands and how easy it is to do it before you purchase one.

DVD does not play on other players or computer


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Your description indicates that the last step in the DVD recording has not been performed on these discs that were recorded on the Magnavox. This would be "finalize" or instruct the Magnavox that no other files would be written/recorded on the current disc. Thereafter, the Magnavox would complete the DVD disc making it playable in any other player. Normally, finalization would take a bit of time to complete.

Pls post back how things turned up. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

I HAVE A MAGNAVOX DVD RECORDER MWR10D6 AND I AM TRYING TO RECORD VHS TAPE FROM A VCR TO THE DVD RECORDER. CAN YOU HELP ME WITH THE CORRECT CORRECTIONS; NOTHING IS RECORDING


Play the video on your through your recorder if possible, then record it that way. It works for me. Just go to your watch tv setting and record it off channel three while the vcr plays the video.

Samsung dvdr-120


try checking on the recording mode of the DVD. V recording mode produces more compatible DVD disc. Stay away from VR mode. You may refer to your manual.
