Test reports for various set-top DVD players report that
the recordable DVD compatibility is

  • DVD+R / DVD+R/W = 87.3%

Virtually all new DVD players will be able to play DVD-R format.

There are some early players which cannot play DVD-R format. Below is a list of some of these early models.
The list has been collated from information available on the web. We have not tested these players ourselves.
