Player freezes at same time on almost every disk, and recorder programs won't play on anything else.
My problem is two fold.. First, the dvd player will freeze at 1 hour 15 minutes into almost every movie. Cleaning the disks doesn't help.
Secondly, if we burn a tv show we can only watch it on that dvd player. It won't play on any other player, or computers. Any suggestions?

Re: Player freezes at same time on almost every disk, and...
The last problem is probably because you have not ?finalized? the DVD yet. Basically what that does is modify how the data is stored on the DVD so that a normal DVD player can read it. It also prevents you from modifying or recording to the disk any more so make sure you?re done before performing this.
The part about the freezing is more complex, are these commercially recorded DVDs or something someone else recorded?
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Hi I am Vortash It very much sounds like you are not finalizing your disks .. any dvd recorder that makes a disc from computer dvd's to free standing unit s work on the same software principle , however the programs do differ slightly and finalisation stanard izes the disc to run on any player, without it another recorder will either not recognize the disk or the language it is written in . Read that message at the end and you will see the option to finalize or it will say do you wish to be able to play this on another dvd or it will do it automatically if you set it to do so in the menu on some sets .
if your player isnt doing this it is not set to do so in the menu settings disks can be finalized at any time after recording providing they are not over filled as the finalization process will take up at least 10-12 mb some do it in more some might do it in less depending on the software hope this helps Regards vortash
hi most of the time a cleaning disk or canned air is not enough but you can tray it, you have to open your dvd player and clean you laser lens whit a cotton swabs and alcohol do not use peroxide. Do it slowly and be careful bye and good chance.
This is problem exactly with finalizing for finalizing after disk burning You need to press stop button and finalising menu will appear in your display at that time you need to press Record button top finalize it will take a little time for finalizing then your DVD will play fine in all DVD players

853. How To Reset Your Samsung DVD Player
STEP 1. DVD Reset List Samsung DVD
players have a built-in reset procedure that resets the DVD player to the
factory defaults. You can use the reset procedure to reset settings that
don’t work with your TV or to resolve issues such as unit lock up. To run the
reset procedure, you press one or more buttons on the front of the DVD player
and hold them for at least fifteen seconds. The buttons your press depend on
the model you have. Important: For the reset
procedure to work, you must press the buttons on the front of the player, not
on the remote control for the player. Below is a list
of all Samsung DVD players and the buttons to press to run the reset
procedure. DVD511 - Stop
/ Play DVD611 - Stop
/ Play DVD709 - Stop
Many, many other models follow but cannot be listed here because of this site's text limitations.
My Emerson won't play anything except DVD Movies, never has, wasn't suppose too. Make your movies in DVD Video format and it will read them fine (unless it's broke). I make movies all the time and play them back in mine. It reads DVD-R, DVD+R, and in duel layered. It will not read RW disks!
Man I've every problem you can imagine with DVD Players. I've found when the disk gets stuck, as long as it's not jammed. You can turn the unit off or unplug it. Plug it back in but DON'T TURN IT ON! Instead hit the eject button and the drive should open the drive without trying to read the disk.
