Toshiba SD-V290 DVD/VCR PLAYER

Do not buy this machine unless you want maximum frustration.

 

I bought this machine because of the dual feature of DVD and VCR in addition to being able to play digital music (MP3s, etc.)

Plays both DVD and VCR and will play MP3 and WMA digital music

Very frustrating machine in many ways
