Is it a blue ray disc?

    Blue Ray is a new kind of dvd disc that can only be played in Blue Ray players or on a Playstation 3. We bought one on accident too. They come in slightly shorter cases than a regular dvd. have you tried other dvd's?

When I put a dvd in it wont play and before it would

If it say not supported, It may mean the dvd disk is dirty. Sometime invisible hand oil evaporated on the disk. You rinse the disk off hot tap water and block off the water drops and try all the disks again.

Keep say wrong disk

First, are you trying to play a burned disk, like a CD-RW, or DVD-RW style disk? Sometimes certain DVD players will not play burned disks. Check your owner's manual. If you don't have one, go to the Memorex website and they may have s section where you can download a PDF version for free. Most sites do. Just type in your model number. Second, have you tried other disks, and are they ALL saying the same thing? If so, then it's possible that there is dust or dirt inside near the laser eye, and it's giving you the "wrong disk" message as an error. Try making sure that you have a clean disk, and pick the one in your collection that has the least amount of scratces/imperfections on the shiny side. If it still gives you that message, you can try either using one of those cans of compressed air to blow any dust or debris out of the DVD player and try it again. If that doesn't work, you could try a DVD Player cleaning kit, which you can get at Walmart, or Radio Shack, etc pretty cheap, then try it again. If it still doesn't work, there may be a problem with the unit itself, and you can consider making a claim on the Warranty if it's still covered, taking it in to an electronics repair shop, or just buying a new one. Hope this helps you out. Good luck!

I put in a dvd and it keeps saying wrong disk. It won't play.

This will be because the spindle is not spinning the DVD if you can hear clunking from the player this is the read head searching the radius of the disc to try and mount it.

Recorded dvd's won't play on other dvd players Toshiba d-r410

You can play these recordings without finalizing them in the D-R410, but if you want them to play
in other DVD players, they need to be finalized. See pages 28 to 32 in manual. If you want to
finalize the disks you've already made, follow the directions on page 32.
