Have u tried cleaning the hea of ur dvd player?after using a dvd player or cd player for long times of continous play say 6 months or if u play too many scratched discs and u dont clean the head of the player it starts skipping the disc or many a times dosnt recognise the disc so it'll give u errors like "Unknown Disc", "Disk Error" etc so i would really recommend u to clean its head using a dvd head cleaner cd.. its easily available in the video stores or malls.. u can purchase any dvd head cleaner cuz there are number of manufatcures for this. im sure this would solve ur issue.
PLEASE DO RATE ME,WOULD REALLY APPRECIATE IT

I'm attempting to burn a video i created on windows movie maker to a DVD+R 4.7 GB/Go, 1-16x disc. I've attempted burning it straight from the option in windows movie maker, and now I just attempted to use...


If the DVD is unreadable by several devices then the DVD disk was burned wrong and is nothing more than you can do.
Assure that you have a region set on your DVD players and a certified DVD playback software on PC. Windows Media Player 10 should be enough if the disk is still unreadable will remain unreadable and ony speciall software with raw access will read it but this is not a solution for you.
I use Nero 7 for burning CDs and DVDs and never had a problem. Maybe when you burned the DVD you set a wrong regional code or you choosed a wrong DVD format that is unknown to your DVD players.

My 2 1/2 year old LG dvd/vcr recorder will play some dvds but will not play others. It says unknown disc. I was told to try a lens cleaner; I bought one and the lens cleaner says unknown disc as well. ...


Hi,

Your DVD /VCR says unknown disc because the
dvd which you have inserted is not of the supported format by player.

If you insert unsupported formats only it will say as unknown disc.This is not related with disc cleaners.

Please insert the supported formats and it will play the disc.

Thanx

Won't play any discs, just says "no disc"


Same problem here. I noticed in my case that "disc lock" in the general menu is highlighted, but I cannot get access to it, even though I have the correct password. USB access/avi's work just fine, but no DVD access. It hardly even spins up the disk! I've reflashed the firmware properly and successfully several times, but I still cannot play DVDs. Sorry I don't have an answer for you, but at least you know you're not alone, and I'm looking for one as well. IF I have success, I'll post it here.

After burning home movies on dvd - they won't play on dvd player or computer --- says disk error. Software says disc was successfully copied


Be sure you purchased compatible discs for your DVD player, ie. DVD +R or -R. Some players won't support both.
