What type of formats does my DVD player support?

Last modified : Apr 06. 2018

All DVD players will play the following formats:     


●   DVD (only region code 4 will work with Australian units)     

●   Video-CD (MPEG1)     

●   Audio-CD  



The specific ability to play other formats depends on the model; the list below is not normally compatible:     


●   DVD-ROM     

●   DVD-RAM     

●   CD-ROM     

●   CDV     

●   CDI     

●   HD layer of super Audio CD     

●   CDGs play audio only, not graphics.



Most high-end DVD players have the ability to play the following formats however the ability to play depends on the recording conditions.     


●   DVD-R, +R     

●   DVD+RW, -RW     

●   CD-RW

Please note: Combo DVD/VCRs do not follow the above pattern and newer models can only play DVD’s and Audio-CD’s as standard.
