When you get no disk error, that is usually because of a problem with the optical laser lens that is dirty, faulty or opaque, and will start operating on certain disks better than others.

In that case you will hear disk spinning, whirring and clicking, but the TOC (table of content track at start of CD/DVD will not be read, therefore the error.

Whe this problem is starting you may be able to read only CD, DVD or Blue ray, or for example only DVD-R and not +R , or only to read and not to write and so on. After more prolonged usage , often the unit goes losing the rest of functions, and ends up not reading anything at all.

If instead there is no noise, and disk does not spin at all , then there is a faulty motor, or the motor micro-switch is bad. This situation is far less common than the lens problem.

Try first using a CD/DVD or Blue ray lens cleaner disk to clean the lens. If that does not work you will need to disassemble the drive , and clean lens directly with q tips and isopropyl alcohol, or to replace the CD/DVD lens, or the whole drive unit.

Does not recognise dvd nor cd


Seems that you may have some kind of Dirt/Dust in your player. Buy a CD/DVD Cleaner with liquid to loosen any thing in the player If it has liquid with it, it's best to buy the cleaner with a cleaning liquid in it. When you use be careful t not put to much liquid on CD/DVD it may harm player and such

My dvd 25 do not read file mp3...what type of cd or dvd may Y use??thanks and regards


Any format of disc the player accepts (according to the instruction manual - if you still have it), as well as those which your PC recognises. CD-R (as audio) will work, as will finalised DVD-R discs containing video.

CD-RW & CD-R discs - for mp3/jpeg files - use your PC and choose the appropriate burning software.

DVD-R discs - use either your PC and again choose the appropriate burning software, or a DVD recorder - you must finalise the discs in the recorder for compatible playback in players.

This may or may not help. If your PC is equipped with a CD/DVD drive, write the above-suggested discs in that.

Phillips dvd player will not recognise all dvd disc`s,will only play some dvd`s,and all cd`s.what coiuld be the problem?


The dvd's and cd's that aren't recognized might not be " finalized". Were they store bought or copied by someone with a dvd/cd burner ? When burning dvd's they need to be finalized so that other dvd players other than the one it was burned on can recognize them. Hope this helps.

Roxio will not burn my cdr's, it does not recognise them.


Do you have more than one CD and/or DVD player in your computer? If so, are you burning to the correct one? (You have to tell the player which). Does the CD run properly if you put music in it without trying to burn anything? Have you set the program to burn a CD and not a DVD?

My CD/DVD Player doesnt recognise any CD or DVDs.


the laser lens is dirty or damaged...a laser lens cleaner cd might help..if that doesn't solve it then the laser lens is damaged...you can purchase a relativley cheap dvd player that plays divx/mp4 files and (s)vcd video with cd audio and mp3 support. some come with usb ports and some support .jpeg files(pictures) depending on where you live the price varies.
