Same here.  I bought a fairly expensive Teac.  I went with Teac becasue 
I've always liked there cd-roms and floppies.  I'm a bit disappointed 
with the DVD player, Though.  Part of it may be inherent in DVD's, I 
don't know..... It's the only DVD player, I really used.  I don't like 
the menu's that DVD's use.  I like LD's much better, just pop it in a 
hit play.
