I just bought a new Toshiba HD-A3 HD-DVD player, and it won't recognize the format of HD DVDs, even though the twin disc menu function is set to HD-DVD. It plays regular DVD format just fine, although it is still set to play HD-DVD on the menu. I tried downloading firmware update ISOs to a disc (as per Toshiba's website), but it won't recognize the update disc, either. In all cases, it says "can't load, not DVD". Any help?

Hey! It is possible to convert your Toshiba HD E1 DVD player to region free. But you need some DVD Copy software to help you remove the region code first and then burn it on a new DVD disc. Thus you can play it on your DVD player. I recommend you use this DVD Copy which is very esay-to-use.
If you want to watch your DVDs on PC or some portable palyer, you can use some DVD Ripping Software which can remove CSS protection from DVD and convert DVDs to video palyable on PC. You can have a try of this DVD Ripper.
Hope that helps.
Are you loading to play or to record? Commercial DVDs should play. DVDs for recording may not be recognized by your drive. First make sure that the disc is blank. You must insert a blank disc of the proper format: DVD-R or RW, DVD+R or RW. Even with the proper format, some brands may not behave the same way as other brands.
