The unit in question absolutely will not recognize any format of dvd. however will read and play audio in any format. rumors of a software update can correct this malfunction, is there any such fix? If so, where can I find it at?
I had a similar problem about 2 years ago, if not exactly the same. At that time I was able to call Cyberhome and got a helpful person on the other end. He explained to me that some brands of disks do not record with the 1600. He told me to use Verbatim disks (+R or +RW of course). I have had no problem with the unit at all since using Verbatim disks. I have also found that Imation works well also, at least the +RW's. The unit will not format a Maxell disk. Hope this helps.

For every format (MP4 is not one, but dozens of formats and no standard) you need a player, or on a computer a setting in a program. A DVD player, only can play one format, a DVD format. Actually it is even a coded format. When you have a MP4 file, you should encode it to to the DVD format and then but it to a DVD, before you try to play it in a DVD player. Try reading some articles about video formats on Wikipedia, when it is interesting enough for you to understand different Video (and Audio) formats.
if you burn mp3 other cd or dvd player wont read the format. its the same with video cd and dvd player have video and music file that they recognized.
try to check the dvd or read the manual. in CD try nero burner and select the option create audio cd,
you can create 20 tracks in cd. with an mp3 or wma file
DVD players can be picky with the type of file format that they use. According to an amazon.com review of this player, it does read DVD+RW/+Rs & DVD-RW/Rs so the problem probably resides in your file format.
The problem is probably the fact that the DVD Player does not recognize the file format of your Mac slide show. The computer recognizes this format, as it plays the slide show. The DVD player recognizes JPG file formats, which is the standard format of a picture.
If a DVD is made with JPG Files, not your slide show files, it will display thumbnails of each picture, allowing the choice of what picture to view.
If the slide show is a must, try to save it to a video file format, such as a *.mpg or *.avi which are common video file formats. These files would be movies of the slide show that you have made.
Like you said the unit is capable of playing DVD RW and DVD-RW. However, some discs may not be compatible due to format of the files on the discs, software used and laser pickup. Some technologies used to record on discs can prevent optimal playback of the files by changing them which affects the ability of the player to read the file.<br /><br />If you are burning the discs, I would suggest you different software, make sure the video/audio files are being converted to a DVD format that can be played on stand alone players.

With the large variety of video formats available nowadays it's difficult to find a unit that plays them all. Chances are you want to play a movie you burned yourself, and though it plays on your PC, it will not play on the DVD player.
Try playing the disc on your PC, and then try different DVD units, perhaps pretending you're shopping for one and want to try your own movie. Chances are these new units may NOT play it either, perhaps because you're using DivX or Xvid two video format contenders on the PC because their codecs offer great compression and very good quality (small file size and even HD video).
If it works on your PC it's because you may have the latests codecs (codifier / decodifier) installed, since some of them may have installed themselves as plugins for your browser, or come as part of a DVD viewing program you may have installed, like WinDVD.
For the time being, watch the DVD on your PC and upgrade your player, if it's more than 2 yrs. old.
