    I have a Humax Series 2 TIVO with and 8O Hour Drive and a DVD Burner.

    This past weekend I burnt 4 DVD's on Fuji and Verbatim DVD-RW discs. When I inserted them into my 5 year old DVD player only two of the disk could be read and two would not read. The Sony player issued C: 13: 00 on the screen.

    What makes this more of a mystery is one of the disks last week worked and this week when it was re-burnt - the player would not recognize the disk.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on how to solve this problem?

    I've had a similar problem but am still scratching my head. I am hopeful someone else can enlighten me.

    Different media types have different results-- older players certainly will have issues trying to read different/newer media at times.

    I use Memorex and have had great success... though all my players throughout the house are within a year or two old.

    DVD-Rs barely existed 5 years ago so a player bought then was probably only designed and tested on DVDs. You may get lucky by experimenting with different media, but you may also need a new player for reliable results.
