SOURCE: dvds recorded on video to dvd recorder wont play elsewhere

Mosr DVD recorders have a "compatible" setting or require you to "finalise" the disc. Check that is being done.

It's also worth checking that the laptop will play other DVDs sometimes you need a codec.

SOURCE: will not play DVDs (no disc message on display),

it sounds like the player has bit the dust. you can try a lens cleaner disc, but it is doubtful that it'll work. Samsung set-top players don't have the best reputation, but this one actually scored pretty well on Amazon customer reviews (this kind of issue in particular (cannot read media anymore - or even initially out of the box) is one that Samsungs are known for). I'd recommend just making the jump to a Blu-Ray player since they have fallen in price and a good unit can be picked up fairly inexpensively (get a profile 2.0 unit)

If cleaning did not fix it the optical pickup for that unit is damaged in some way---if the set has audio/video INPUT jacks on it just buy a DVD player and hook it to the set.

If no jacks you are finished--DVD portion of the unit if available costs more than the entire set.

Will not play DVDs (no disc message on display),


That usually happens when the laser deteriorates. You can get it replaced but it's not cheap

My samsung dvd player will not play dvds, but it


Are you trying to playing recordable DVDs (DVD+R or DVD-R) ? if so, try playing original DVDs (the type you rent or buy) those are pressed DVDs - if it works, then your player does not support DVD-R or DVD+R - If you are using a computer burner that supports bitsetting you can change the booktype of a DVD+R to DVD-ROM to fool your player.

If however your player cannot play either DVD-R, DVD+R nor original DVDs and only plays CDs, then your dvd laser diode is finished - there is one for CD and one for DVD, this is rare but happens, there is nothing you can do, any repairs would be very expensive - you are better off getting a new DVD player they are very inexpensive now and any repairs will cost you multiple times a new DVD player.

Brand new DVDs will not play in Samsung Progressive Scan v3650


If you're trying to play through to your TV through the RF out on your combo unit, it's probably the copy protection that's stopping the playback. Try through the composite/audio jacks.

Ubuntu dvd problem


You can use VLC instead (videolan.org). It includes the libdvdcss library that will allow you to play even content-scrambled dvds. Or if you'd like to do it the Ubuntu way, you can check this page. It has all the instructions you need to play DVDs.

Dvds recorded on Samsung will ONLY play on Samsung


Hi,

Have you finalised the disc before trying to play it elsewhere? If not this could well be the problem. The option is the menu.

Hope this helps

Screen displays "Error data" when trying to play a DVD


My understanding is that the DVD player uses a different lens to the CD player. So the DVD lens might need cleaning. A CD lens cleaner would not correct the DVD side.
