Portable DVD player with DVD+ & -R capabilities

  1. I am looking into buying a portable DVD player, but I need it to be able to play DVD+ and or -R's along with the usual DVD, CD, MP3, SVCD, etc. Does anyone know of anything that will do this? I just picked one up on Black Friday, but am sure it won't play writeables, and don't want to open it to find out and not be able to return it.

    Hey P ;
    I have found that most of the newer Big brand mid priced & +, portables will work with the media you mentioned.They usually display compatible icons on the box .I have a panisonic that I have played DVD+rw in, yet it is labelled for DVD-R.
    Go figure!
    It has been my experience that you must test the Media brands themselves .
    Does that unit you purchased have a web site to confirm it capabilities.

    Heh no, it's a Kawasaki (I thought they made motorcycles) But anyway it played it skipped and stuttered a lot. I'm going to take it back anyway and get one I really want, instead of one that was a good deal, but sucks for BF. And on this one it says it plays DVD Video, which I think is all you need to have in order to play writeables. We'll see.
