I have this problem.. I put in a DVD that I know it has read ok before. But, now it takes a long time trying to load and then it just stops trying and returns 'NO DISK" So, I opened it up and watched it try to load. The motor on the DVD drive was struggling and couldnt keep the disk spinning a the correct speeds. Now, I am looking for a drive replacement. I hope this helps.

Make sure you have a non home made DVD. Some DVD players will not play DVD'S in certain formats.
If you have a normal DVD in the DVD player and are getting "NO Disk" then there is a real good possibility the lens is just so dirty that it is not recognizing your DVD at all. This happens a lot to all disk players that are neglected from the cleaning process. Get a disk player cleaner and run it through a few times until the disk is read again. Sometimes the lens is so dirty you have to try a few times just to get the cleaner disk itself to play just to do the actual cleaning. Make sure to run that cleaner disk through once a week. These disk cleaners "sweep" the lens and work well. You can get one at your local Best Buy for $8usd.
The last thing it could be is that somehow the lens has come out of alignment. Just a millimeter out of alignment is all it takes to not be able to read a disk and DVD players get bumped and knocked off the shelf easy. So this can happen often especially with the more smaller travel DVD player.
If you are getting a disk read error message with any of these devices listed then just follow the instructions at the bottom.
Blue ray player
Or anything else that uses cd or dvd.
The first thing you need to do is go out and by a cd or dvd lense cleaning kit you can buy thse from most computer stores or electronic hardware stores make sure you dont buy the cheapest one you see as these tend not to do any good and can cause more harm than good, so go for a mid range to high end one.
Run this disk in your player and this will then clean the lense of any dust or grime that has built up over time this should then solve your problem.
If after doing this you still have the problem then this would indicate that either the laser unti has over heated due tp build up of dust or it gas reached the end of its working life and needs replacing.
The problem you have with this is unless its a high end player or games console then the chances are it would cost more to repair then it would to replace the whole player
hi, if your dvd player is giving you disk error message or no disk message then the chances are the laser lense needs cleaning.
What you need to do is go to any big computer store and purchase a dvd lense cleaning disk, dont buy the cheapest one as they tend not to work so go for mid range or top end one. Then all you need to do is put this disk into your dvd player and it will then clean the lense for you and should solve your problem.
If how ever you still have the problem then try different disk in it to ensure the dvd your trying is working ok if after doing this you still have the problem then the chances are the laser unit itself is no good and needs replacing. The problem with this is unless your dvd player is built into the telly then the chances are it would be cheaper to go out and buy a new dvd player as the cost of repair would more than likely cost more than the cost of a new dvd player
The player works speed sensor for drive. Home produced or scratches videos are harder for it to read and if after a certain time interval of not being able to read it the player goes to a default(No Disc). A lot of times this is a mechanical problem which can be solved by lubricating the rod that the laser reader rides on as well as the DVD holder which grabs the disc, I use silicone lube. It does require removing the cover of the unit and removing part of the drive. Good luck..
If this problem occurs only at this dvd it's a disk problem. If it occurs on various disks try using a cd/dvd cleaner set, a wet one is better. Follow the instructions
on the set. The main idea is to put one drip of the included liquid at the set
(usually isopropyl alchohol) at a specific place (like small
brush) on the disk surface and play this disk. That way the "brush" will
clean up the laser lens and after that the cd/dvd player will be able to
read the disks. BE CAREFULL not to put too much liquid on the "brush".
In case of a problem or clarification, don't

In case you can, use a Q-tip with isopropylic alchool to clean up the cd lens manually. In case this don't solve your problem, the cd player needs laser lens replacement by a technician.

Use DVDFab to rip the files to your HDD, it will create a VIDEO_TSfolder and put all the video files in it. DVDFab is a whole movieripper only, so you're getting everything on the disk ripped to you'reHDD, once DVDFab is done, run DVD shrink. Use DVD shrink to open thefiles created by DVDFab (use the open files tab and browse to theVIDEO_TS folder created by DVDFab and choose it), at this point shrinkwill import the files, use shrink as you normally would to create yourbackup.
