    Just saw the report on Engadget.com that the user manual (in PDF) has surfaced on the Samsung website. Haven't gotten a chance to read through the whole thing yet but it doesn't appear to contain anything too shocking.

    just reading through it, found this interesting on page 24..

    Discs which cannot be played and/or are
    not intended to be played with this player.
    • HD DVD • DVD+RW • DVD+R
    • CD-ROM • CVD
    • CD-I
    • Super Audio CD(except CD layer)
    • CDGs play audio only, not graphics.
    Ability to play back may depend on recording conditions.
    • DVD-R
    • CD-RW
    • DVD-RW (V mode)
    • The unit may not play certain CD-R,
    CD-RW and DVD-R due to the disc type
    or recording conditions.

    Why not DVD+R or DVD+RW ?? ..and 'may' not play CD-R

    Good point Hank. I'm not sure I understand why +R and +RW aren't supported... are there two separate lasers in the Samsung player for reading the DVD and BD discs? If so then I would assume that they could use a red laser capable of reading + discs. Odd... not a deal breaker for me as I've mainly used dash/minus discs, but odd none the less.

    Hey Chris, nice sig! I remember when I posted that. [​IMG]

    I think they're just trying to cover their asses with all of the different types of CD-R's out there. I occasionally run into one that won't play on my DVD player.

    not sure who to believe (but I'm guessing the manual probably over-rides a website)

    from Onecall on the Samsung P1000. Here is says it accepts +RW, +R

    General Features
    Surround Modes DTS, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby Digital / AC-3
    Compatible Formats MPEG, MP3, DVD-RW, DVD-RAM, DVD-R, DVD+RW, DVD+R, DVD, CD-RW, CD-R, CD, BD-RE, BD-R, BD

    It is possible that both things are true: The player will accept CD +R, + RW, but that some of those disks may not play—just like with some CD players (as already noted) on some +R, +RW disks.

    I was under the impression there's no such thing as CD+R and that distinction only applies to DVDs.

    There isn't a plus format for CD. I'm pretty sure Lew meant CD-R and CD-RW.
