Hello all.Got a question.
Hello. I have a question worthy of a newbie.About 6-7 years ago I converted VHS and VHS-C tapes of home movies over to DVD-R and DVD+R discs.Recently the 2009-era Magnavox that I used for this was broken.When I went to play the DVD-R's in ANY other player they simply won't read the discs.I found the EXACT model of Magnavox on e-bay and ordered it and am eagerly awaiting it in the mail.However,using the analogy of a man not waiting until he is 100 feet from the ground before he waits to see if his parachute will open I am trying to cover all bases here.If for some reason the new Magnavox would NOT read the discs.What options do I have? I mean,I thought that it would but after reading horror stories about fickle booktypes,etc. on DVD players I am gun-shy.I tried 2 spanking new DVD players and the built-in security apparatus(to deter bootlegging) means it is just impossible with a new one.I would appreciate some info or help. Thanks.
