Screeching noise when device is loading a disc

It only started yesterday after I watched a movie. When I loading a disc (DVD or Audio) it makes this screeching noise like the disc is rubbing against something, but then it says "No Disc". I've had problems trying to play some discs or DVD but never the horrible noise. Do I need to buy a CD cleaner disc. I just hope the laser isn't *&^% up. If th laser is messed up can it be repaired? Is this normal wear and tear? the others functions work fine (TV, Radio) just the video mode. Someone please help!

Tips to Burn Movies Purchased from iTunes to DVD

It's easy enough to burn a movie or video on our computer to a DVD disc in order to watch the movies on TV via DVD player. But it's not the case when it comes to burn movies purchased from the iTunes Store to DVD. As you need to know, all video files, including movies, TV shows and music videos we got from iTunes are protected by DRM technology, which makes it impossible for us to directly copy the iTunes movies to DVD burner software. But that not means we can't find a way to burn the DRM-protected iTunes videos to DVD discs for watching on TV. In fact, there is a tool called TunesKit iTunes to DVD Converter ( will get the job done with ease.

This iTunes video converter application is going to help us bypass the DRM lock from iTunes movie purchases while converting the DRM'd video files to unprotected MPEG-4 format which is supported by most of the DVD burning software so far. Now you can follow the instructions below to easily get rid of DRM from iTunes purchased movies before burning them into DVD.

Here we will take iTunes to DVD Video Converter for Mac as an example. So make sure you've downloaded the latest version on your Mac. Otherwise you should click the URL here:

1. Load iTunes movies to TunesKit by clicking "Add Files" button or by dragging & dropping action supported by this converter.

2. Select output settings, like the output path, audio tracks and subtitles before converting the DRM-ed iTunes movies to MP4.

3. Start to remove DRM protection from iTunes movie purchases by clicking "Convert" button.

4. Find the converted DRM-free iTunes videos in the output folder and add them to DVD burner to begin burning them to DVD.

Once the movies are successfully burnt to the discs, you are freely to play the iTunes movies on your HDTV via DVD player at anytime you like.

I'm trying to watch a movie on my coby portable DVD player and every time I try and watch a movie it just says invalid disc and it makes weird sounds.

If there is no TS-Folder showing in a computer then it is not a DVD Disc. The disc could be badly scratched, ie the noise. There are many theories and one I've heard but not try is putting nail polish over the disc the freezing overnight, defrost then wipe outward a from the centre. The DVD player may be out align then should be looked at or possibly cheaper to buy a new player. Hope the info was useful, good luck ;)

Crashing/freezing when playing game/movie (blu-ray/dvd)

fine mechanics in the device might be damaged. There are also cases that involve loud screeching noises when this happens. It could be due to over use, the device got wet and so on. For now, I think the problem with that is the Disc Reader. Do check if it is covered with dirt or is loose. Some cases are: the reader comes off when the CD is taken out. I hope this helps! It's all in the reader, or it could be in the disc itself, clean the disc before inserting it into the device. After using the device, take out the disc and lightly blow on the reader to remove dirt. Hope that does the job..!

DVD player will not read disc

It sounds like its not reading the disc, most the time that is caused by a bad processor and that isn't something you can fix yourself
