Chances are pretty good that your dvd player doesn't support dvd-rw try a dvd-r and see if that works for you.

traxdata or pioneer-

chances are for full compatibility you're gonna have to burn as slow as possible-

I agree with gratefulme- only use rw's sparingly for testing purposes, rw's by their very nature are harder to read that write once media.

for the price of a pioneer 2x rw, you can get 3-4 ritek 4x g04 discs, and in my experience dvd-rw's are only good for 10-15 burns for stand alone/ console use after that they'll only read in the pc drive

Listen to this guy. Chances are your dvd player does not support DVD-RW, maybe DVD-R. Even if you you heard it does, it's only what you hear. I've have actually have a few problem with dVDRW compabiility on a friend's dvd player. Try the DVDRW disc on another DVD player before burning more media.

Burning speed has nothing to do with compatibility, I've burn a couple of DVDRW at 4x and they're the same as if I burn it at 1x.

I can't get RW discs to work on anything but my PC and I have tried a couple of different brands. Stick with a quality DVD-R disc (Ritek, Taiyo Yuden or Apple) for best results. They are cheaper than RW discs and FAR more compatible.
