Re: Does the DVD player play all DVD disk formats?

The brands all vary as well as the players. I would try different brands until you find some that your player/recorder likes. We use Imations and TDK's. For DVD burning I would definitely stay away from non brands.

The dvds are not detected - No Disc or Disc Error

Hi. These steps should help.
  1. Check the disc you're using for scratches and dirt. If the disc is damaged it won’t play properly, regardless of the DVD player’s ability to function. You can use a DVD repair device like the "Disc Doctor" to repair the DVD or purchase a new DVD.
  2. Make sure the discs you're using fit the correct format specified by your DVD player. For example, if your DVD player doesn’t support home-burned DVD-R's, then you can’t use a DVD that you made at home. You may need to upgrade to a newer model, most of which accept the latest DVD formats.
  3. Clean the laser lens with a DVD laser lens cleaning disc. DVD laser lens cleaning discs can be purchased at most electronics retailers or online. Insert the laser lens cleaning disc and follow the instructions.
  4. Insert a correctly-formatted, undamaged disc into your player. Listen to see if it begins to read the disc. If it continues to make no sound and gives you the same message, then the problem is probably that your disc is not spinning in the device.
  5. Turn the device off and unplug it. Take off the outer casing by removing the three or four screws and lifting the top piece off. This will allow you to see if anything is simply stuck or jammed. If this is the case, a simple nudge back to the correct position will fix the problem.
  6. Clean the lens while the DVD player is open. A dirty lens is most likely the cause of your no-disc error. The lens should be cleaned with isopropyl alcohol and a cotton swab.
  7. Take your DVD player to have it professionally fixed only when none of these other solutions solves the problem. A professional repair technician will be able to tell you if fixing your DVD player is worth the money.

Hi. I'm trying to play a homemade dvd with several slideshows and a selection menu. It works jst fine on my PS3 at home but nothing shows on our son's TV that's connected to a lifestyle 38. Other DVDs...

The dvd may be in the wrong format for your Son's t.v. PS3's play several formats that the lifestyle 38 may not be compatible with. You can download a video converter such as Any Video Converter and format the disc for whatever format you need. Probably mpeg2. Then it should play on most players.

Doesn't read disc

Glenn's answer is incomplete. I have the same machine. I am currently experiencing a similar problem. The machine reads cd's, vcd's, but it will not read dvd's. Commercially purchased dvd's. The problem is not a format problem, not a zone problem. The dvd's work in other machines, so it is not a dvd problem. If anyone has any ideas, please respond. Thank you.

Loading Problem

No Disk issues on device players like DVDs are caused by the following problems

Dirty Play Heads (Optical lens)
Bad CDs or scratched CDs on the surface
Non Compatible CD formats such as DVDs that are designed for some geographical regions and play formats
Also low electrical current is a major problem too

Your issue could reside amongst any of these problems

Check your DVD compactible play formats if its compactible with the CD you want to play.

If its compactible, then I suggest you get a CD Cleaner to clean to clean to Lens.

Also check your current output and if low, get a voltage stabilizer

Check the surface of the CD if its scratched and get a replacement.

Format unsupported

Format unsupported simply means the unit can not read the disc. The problem is either the disc or the player.

Contact Bose technical support if you are sure the discs are good. 800-367-4008

Dvd will not play in dvd player but will play in computer

I don't know if I really find the solution but several burned discs I decide to burn a poor disc 8x instead my emtec 16x and voil'a the disc go on my SC-HT70. I suppose it doesn't support new type of discs with higher velocities even burned at a lower velocity (4x). If any one have another solution please let me know.
Also I know we can upgrade firmware of Panasonic but it can only be done by a technician and it's very expensive.

Hd dvd

As a general rule, Blu-ray and HD do not mix, unless you have a dual format player. That said, I will assume that you are using AT Least one of these newer format players. A standard player will not play either of the higher definition format discs...accordianman
