I have used Pioneer 2 X DVD-RW's and Maxell 2 X DVD+RW's and both work fine in my 106 and play fine in my 2 standalones (Sony & Pacific).
PS2 is coosy, so not a good test.

I did have some cheapo crap Datawrite 2 X RW's (green & Black) some time back, which were useless, apart from pretty coasters, so if you are using cheapos ....... forget it !

I agree with comments above though .... i.e. it could well be your standalone that has the problem. Try them in a few other standalones, to prove/disprove this. Also if you list your standalone make/model no., we might be able to check it out for you.

My Sony Stand Alone DVD Player works with any DVDRW I throw at it too. Even though thier product are a bit more then every other company, at least they work really good. My cousin has a toshiba and I notice some of my DVD skipped tremendously on his dvd player.

Hi all

As most have posted, the problem will prob be with the -rw.
My pioneer dv-350 standalone will play any dvd-r, but refuses
point-blank to play any -rw. As soon as I switched to +rw, the
story is different. Tried Packard Bell, Riteks, even datawrite, all
play with no probs.

So try swithing to +rw media.

Not sure. I know that most sites offer a sample pack of a variety of DVD-R but I am not sure if they do the same for RW.
