DVD Player Compatibility

Not all DVD players were created equal!

It’s the Player that’s incompatible, not your disc.

Will House Of Opera DVD's work on my DVD player?

The easy answer is that over 95% of the DVD players on the market today will play your DVD. These players are generally produced by the major manufacturers and are 100% DVD compliant. So what about the other 5%? Well, some manufacturers, in a rush to get products to market, build their machines to work on most discs, realizing that some features of DVD may not work. Many of these machines have problems playing certain Hollywood titles as well as DVD-R discs which are the only reasonable media option when creating “short run” or “one off” DVD production. Replicated DVD’s (Like the ones you rent in the video stores) are 100% compatible but most manufactures have a 1000 disc production minimum.

I have a “first generation” player. Will my disc work?

First generation DVD players are defined as those introduced in 1997, the year DVD was introduced to the world. Many of the players that first hit the streets are not 100% compliant with the entire DVD specification. The number of these players that are incompatible is substantially higher than 5%.

What if my disc won’t work in my player?

If you have purchased an incompatible player, here are some possible solutions:

Return your player. If you bought the player recently, you may be able to return it for a new, compliant player. Buy a new player. Although this seems like a bit of a drastic solution, with the cost of a good, compatible player as little as $40, many people simply get a new player. They may keep the other player for another room in the house or give it to a family member as a gift DVD-R Compatible Not Reliable or Incompatible

Important Information!!!
USA Telephone (404) 200-4776 We sell only opera recordings. The recordings are sent to you in paper sleeves with no tray card or inserts, just the raw discs with printed labels. These recordings are of nonprofessional quality that are in the public domain. The quality of these old opera recordings is not very good and they are meant for collectors and educational purposes only. Most of them are 30 or 40 years old, so they might be blurry, colors faded, and not sound very good, but they might not be available elsewhere. Please note that most of our recordings do not have tracks, they have 1 long track per disc.
