Many older dvd players have spotty compatibility with dvd-r media at best.
If you've never been able to play any dvd-r media in your standalone player,
you can check at http://www.dvdrhelp.com/dvdplayers for a compatibility
report on your model. If it's anything like my old Sony 550 player, it may
not be able to reliably play any dvd recordable media.
