My vm9510 has been working fine for quite some time but, recently when I put a DVD into the player it either reads ERROR or EJECT Disk. Sometimes it'll play for a minute then freeze. I've tried different media from DVD to MP3 disk but I still keep getting either of these messages.

How old is the system? DO CDs work when you try them? Put a disk in... remembering the position it was in.. Then try to play the disk... Eject if it does not play and look to see if it has moved to a different position... If not, there is a motor problem or the laser is not sensing the disk being there.
Have you ever opened up the main box of the system? Has anyone else been inside it?
If yes, then maybe it is time to do it again to observe if there is movement of the laser pickup..
I had the same problem like this on my machine. The best way to fix it is to turn the machine off completely and hold on the eject button then turn the power on. You want the first thing the player does is to eject the disk without trying to read it first.
I hope it works let me know if it doesn't and i'll try and recreate the problem on my player and see what i can do to get the disk out.
The last resort is to manually take the disk out but lets cross that bridge if my suggestion above doesn't work.
In the manual there is a list of discs the unit wil play. On the last pages there is a quick reference. There are also region codes that need to be set. Maybe a power outage reset your settings. Also it would be good to know if this unit played disc previously, plays other disks? Or the discs play on other players. It could just be a dirt problem as well.
The Laser Diode inside the UV8 that reads the DVD media is most likely set too weak for the amount of dust built up in over time. This dust block the laser optics and causes the player to not read DVD's. You will want to go get a bottle of air from Radio shack and blow the DVD player out. The reason it is reading CD's is that its laser diode may be set stronger and is able to break through the dust. There are two Laser Diodes, one for CD, and one for DVD.

My Smasung DVD/VCR Combo stopped reading DVDs because of a dirty read head. It started by only playing disks sometimes, and progressed to never playing disks. I assumed it was a dirty laser lens so I bought a lens cleaner set. Unfortunately my player wouldn't play the cleaner disk.
So I took it apart and cleaned the laser lens manually with some isopropyl alcohol (the clenser that came with my cleaning disk), and a lens cloth (that came with my glasses). Just open the case (starting with the screws in the back) and remove the snap in cross panel that obscures the lens of the DVD portion. Put a drop of cleanser on the lens and gently wipe it with the cloth.
Oh and by the way, I take no responsibility if you break your own player while following my instructions. My own DVD player was far out of warranty at the time I cracked it open.
