Sony players are famous for this and you should call them. They have so many offices that its always hard to know which one to phone. But, that information should be in your user manual.

What it comes down to is the Sony supported Copy Right Protection Scheme, which is really complicated... so much so that it really causes problems for users.

Sorry I can't help you more with anything other than advice, but don't despair, give them a call and complain vociferously.

    Hi,

    Lets try and get you to an better understanding of the problems with this model you have.

    The following comments by owners is from www.videohelp.com

    Here is the direct link to the page at video help that contains user remarks for your player. One would normally give more weight to a user that has had this player for a considerable amount of time, not just a few days or a week.

    You will notice that this player can and cannot play certain media, pressed in mass production to burned at at a local PC.

    You can make up your mind on what to do. And I hope you find this information of more use and you will change the rating you give me initially. I don't feel there is much more we can do here at FixYa using email, or any other form of support. As to your friends tweak to get it out of DTS, to Progressive, to Normal, I would think you could do this in the menus, or the player does it automatically. Either way, it shouldn't make a difference and that the crux. Cheaper players use drives meant for PCs whereas the more Prestigious players like Sony use proprietary drivers meant for adhering to copyright protection schemes supported by the Sony/Phillips alliance (they own the patent).

    Best Regards and Good Luck,
    Worldvet

Disc error message when load DVD


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.

My go video dvr4400 does not play homemade dvd's


Usually it isn't the speed of the homemade DVD but the type. DVDs come in four different formats:

DVD+R
DVD-R
DVD+RW
DVD-RW

Some DVD players will play all formats and some don't. Your manual should tell you. Do you know what formats are available for playback on your Go video?

Your player may only be able to play DVD-format discs. Try converting the video with Nero or WinAvi or DVDFlick to true DVD format.

Recorded a DVD on computer but will not play on DVD player


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.
