    The DVD player keeps trying to load a disc, for as much as five minutes, and the sometimes gives the error message "Can't read disc". This is happening even with DVD's that I was previously able to use in the player.

    I tried a CD/DVD player cleaner, and still no luck. Any other suggestions or is it probably just time to get a new one?

    Same issue.

    This is so frustrating. I've tried several movies that I've been able to play just fine before but now I get the error message, "dvd cannot be played, please check disc". Well, there's nothing wrong w/the disc as I tried it on my PC and it plays just fine. I used a Philips cd/dvd disc lens cleaner that does have these little fiber things on it and when inserted into the player is supposed to clean the lens. This didn't help, any other good cleaners out there that I should try that will actually fix this problem or is it just time to buy another player? Mine is less than 3 yrs old. The VCR part works just fine..go figure.

    DVD wontt accept new, DVD-R or DVD+R. Get thefollowing message:

    This disk cannot be played

    Please check the disk.

    I also have a Samsung DVD-VR330 that does the same thing.

    Any suggestions other than get a different brand?

There are a few different cleaning kits out there these days for DVD or CD players. I would recommend one that actually has fibers on it so the it brushes the lense of the DVD player. These cleaning kits can be found just about anywhere. Have you tried to clean it with anything?

DVD Player stops reading disc Error message :

usually this happens when lens cannot read the the disc. Due to few reason 1 Your disk is scratched 2 Your DVD lens is covered with dust 3 You need to replace DVD lens
Try another few CD/DVD to rectify whether there is any problem with dvd you are trying to play
if this error occurs on all the dvd you played then the most likely proble is with your DVD lens either its coverd with dust use Disk cleaner if not you got to replace a new DVD lense as per model

Make sure you are using the right disk IE, DVD-R or DVD+R. Most Newer DVD player's will play DVD-R but very few play DVD+R
