Hi there,

Expert:  Pete replied 10 months ago.

PBC stands for "playback control."

Try turning off PBC in the menu and let me know if the DVD formats ok...

I have tried that as I have told you twice already

Hi I will try to assist you. Who is the DVD manufacturer? Are they single use or ones you can erase?

When you go to disk set-up what happens?

Here is the link for the manual look at places 67 for instructions. You can you try a different brand of dvds?
