Default Firmware For HD-A35

I was wondering, mine still has the 1.1 firmware. I tried to play a few burned DVD's and
the A35 does not recognize them. It says this disc is not DVD format, or something along those lines. The HD-A20 in my bedroom plays all discs, Divx, DVD-/+R, whatever I put in it. Is there a reason why, will the most current update fix these issues?

Oh well. I tried the 2.0 update on the A35 and it still does not work. I am afraid to update my A20 now, in fear of the firmware messing up the playback of my burned DVD's. Maybe I'll move the A20 out to the living room and the A35 to the bedroom, this sucks.

It sounds like there is something wrong with your A35 that involves more than firmware versions. Maybe you should have it looked at by Toshiba. Either that or a fresh look at how you are burning dvd media?

It works with regular DVD and HD DVD. If I try to play a burned disc, then it won't play at all. The burned discs play on the HD-A20, but not the HD-A35. It says that the disc is not DVD format and shows the error message.

I am using DVD-R discs. The thing that irritates me, is why does it work on the A20 and not the A35. The A35 is supposed to be the "superior" machine. I guess I will get some DVD+R discs and try it out. Thanks guys!
