    I had 4x DVD-R by Memorex (which I can't find to buy anywhere now) and they worked fine, but then put in another DVD-R disc and it gives me this error? The only difference in the disc is it is 16x. The I found 4x DVD-RW and tried those and they did not work as well. Same error each time. HELP!

I have a DVD and VHS player in 1 and it was working well then all of a sudden the DVD player part just stopped playing. I stick in a disk and then it would read: disk error play back feature may not be available on this disk. And this disk is fine it plays in my daughters room in her 2 in 1 player. so What can I do? The VHS player works well. Help! I dont really want to buy a new one!

Maybe you're trying to burn a PAL (European) file instead of an NTSC (American) file. Run a conversion program like Xilisoft Video Converter or Wondershare, etc. and select "NTSC" when you run the conversion. Then burn the resulting file as usual.

Your player contains operating software which regulates the the type of disc and speed. i have both a emerson unit and a sylvaina unit and there speed was set at 4x. I contacted Funai which makes the player/recorders and they sent me a software disk (the same as a software upgrade for a computer) which i installed and was then able to use 8x disc's. You may be able to purchase 8x discs still online(best bet is best buy.com) and you can contact Funai Corp. for the software upgrade which comes with fairly easy instructions. Good luck

Disc error: playback feature may not be available on this disc. Please eject disc.


If this is on only one disk, it's likely a bad disk. If on all disks, it's the player....

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
http://www.nero.com/enu/downloads-nero9-trial.php
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!

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.

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
