Re: I can't get my dvd to load

Do you get this error with every disc, or with a specific one? could it be possible that the discs in question have certain features on them that can't be used with your player? such as audio tracks,subs, angles etc? If you're burning discs, always do so in 2x or 4x, turn off all other programs while ripping/burning. Try other discs and post back if you have any more info

Disc Error:

Take it back to the store if its new or if you bought a warranty and trade it for a new one. If not try calling an electronic store and ask them if they know whats wrongs with it. Be sure to read the instruction manuel for a support phone number and call there too.

Get message disc error and that playback feature may not be available everytime submitting 5 different discs.

Did you try to update the software?
If software is updated the probable caue is a faulty laser unit.

Disc error "playback feature may not be available on this disc"

Hello arnita2211,

This error message is due to an improper format, that your dvd player can't handle. To correct this you need to use a program such as nero and in nero is a program called nero vision, that will recode the movie file into a dvd playable format.

You can download a trial of nero here
You will have to purchase a license when the trial ends. Sorry we cannot give you a serial key for this as it is Illegal.

Thank you for trying Fixya!

Disc error "playback feature may not be available on this disc"

the message you are getting is the machines waay of telling you that it can not read that disc. which means you will have to burn your discs in a different format. or your are using a type of disc it does not recognize.

If these disks have not been finialized then they will not play on the dvd player. Turn your computer on and see if they will play. If they will then you will need to the dvd palyer finialize them. I hope this helps you. If not get back to me and then we can try a different way.

DVD will not play disc

You need to find a good dvd cleaner and clean that real well run it a couple of times that should fix your problems. If not you may have to bring it in and get the optics cleaned by a professional. But I am confident if you get a good cleaning disk it should fix it, Happy Holidays
