Hi, I have a Samsung DVD Player H1080 R. Nice player with sleek design. When I try to connect my Seagate Go Flex USB 2.0 Plug & Play (1 TB), it doesnt play. There is data in the external hard disk,...


Good day!

These are the 2 possible causes and solution on that problem:
  • The format of the file on U.S.B device is not compatible to the format requirements of the DVD player.For example your DVD player required A.V.I or MPG/M-PEG for the video while the file format of your U.S.B is F.L.V and when you try to insert it to the U.S.B port the file doesn't read.You have to do is convert the file that store on your U.S.B device depends on the format requirement of your DVD.Use a total video converter to convert the file on your U.S.B to the format you need to play on the DVD player.

  • Or the problem could be the U.S.B itself,because the U.S.B host on this product does not supported all U.S.B device.Please try to use other mass media device such as memory card or mp3 players.
I hope this solution will be helpful.Thank you.

Wont read dvd or cd


The problem is the laser pickup assembly, the laser pickup gets weaker overtime until it can not read the disc, or the pladder motor becomes defective. One possible solution is clean the laser lens with a Q-Tip and rubbing alcohol, carefully clean the lens and wipe excess off. If this fails it is cheaper to replace the dvd player.

When i put in a disk it spins for a bit and then reads no disk


There is a malfunction in the The Laser Pickup Assembly, not cost effective for repair. One possible solution is to clean the laser pickup lens with a Q-Tip and rubbing alcohol, this might get it up and running if it works.

When trying to play dvd wont due to saying either unknown disc or defective disc


Hey,
As i don't know the model of your dvd player or the type of dvd you are using I can only give you a very basic response for possible issues.  1. you are using a "burned" dvd on an older dvd player. Some older dvd players can't read dvd's burned from a computer. 2. The lense is dirty, scratched or damaged.. if other disks work in the dvd player, than this option is out the window. 3. DVD is damaged or defective. Just like the previous solution, if the disk works in other dvd players, this option is out the window 4. The DVD is from a different Region. Here in Canada and the US we are region 1, if you get a disk from Europe or japan. they are region 2 dvd's and thus don't work in our north american machines. 5. Some older DVD players have difficulty reading dual layer discs - just a though
I hope those were helpful, if not message me back with the dvd player model number and the movie or type of disk you were using.
