very easy, sony does not play cd-r's, however they do play cd-rw's. go to and go to dvd player, then type in ur brand and it will tell u what kind off cd-rw u need , I.E silver bottoms, or gold. for my sony dvp360 i use silver memorex

Sony lied to you. Their DVD players are known to not support CD-R and the encoding has nothing to do with it. It's a media issue. The other response you got had some real good suggestions. I can tell you that Sony brand CD-RWs work fine as I made some VCDs for a friend with them who also has a Sony DVD player. I can't personally verify this, but I did hear from a guy once who told me that he had successfully used Practical Peripherals brand CD-Rs in his Sony DVD player. I think that Office Depot sells that brand.

CD-R will WORK! Just have to find the correct on. The (CD-R) disks I use on my sony dvp-560d DVD player are PRIME PERIPHERALS. I Purchased them at Staples....

The CD-R/RW may or may not work...this argument will go on and on in neat little circles. Forcing a Sony to read media it wasn't designed to is close to lopping off a toe to fir a shoe. Bulldoze that Sony and get a latest-gen Pioneer or Philips instead. Somewhere in the innards of Sony corporate halls is THAT person/s who has decided that Sony DVD set-tops NOT read CD-R/RW; he deserves to be tied to a tree and fireants sprinkled on his balls. Okay just kidding. But you get the picture...

Simply, look for a CD-R brand called PRINCO. These are designed to work just fine on machines which normally don't take CD-Rs!

My CD-R Princo burns work fine on the Sony DVD 525, 725 models. and Sony told me that they wouldn't work....

Primera ke nada graciaz por lo que han comentado aki... Hice ya variaz pruebaz y no logré hacer funcionar ningun VCD en enu DVP- S530D. Esto realmente apesta... no es posible que una marca de tanto nombre no de gran soporte para los distintos formatos que existen en el mercado... Voy a probar los cd r/w a ver ke paza... o las markas ke mencionan los compañeros....
