Hi. my grandma just gave me a magnovox dvd/cd player MD456 . the player will turn on, open and close, but it can't read the dvds (I've tried a few and they have all worked recently with other players and computers) is there anything I can do?

To test the theory of bad drivers follow this instruction >>>>>>
Right click on My Computer and select Manage from the sub menu. A computer management window will pop up so select Device Manager from the list on the left hand side. A device list will populate. Look in the list for DVD/CD ROM drives and click on the + icon next to the DVD/CD. Right click on the actual DVD/CD drive and select uninstall, click Yes to any warnings given and then restart your PC.
Once the computer has restarted wait for the operating system to reinstall the drivers for the DVD/CD drive and then try to eject the disk tray. Listen closely to the drive to see if you can hear it trying to eject.
If it still won't eject then chances are the disk tray is getting trapped on the drop down flap on the front of the computer case. Pull that flap down and push the eject button on the DVD/CD drive and see if it will eject.
If its still won't eject then what E-Machines customer services have told you is correct and you will need a new drive. They are inexpensive around $30.
If the drive still reads disks then your stuck with using a pin until you can have the drive replaced.
Your description indicates that the last step in the DVD recording has not been performed on these discs that were recorded on the Magnavox. This would be "finalize" or instruct the Magnavox that no other files would be written/recorded on the current disc. Thereafter, the Magnavox would complete the DVD disc making it playable in any other player. Normally, finalization would take a bit of time to complete.
Pls post back how things turned up. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
If you do not have a driver or CD that comes with mp3 then it maybe hard. If you have the CD, run it first and let finish. Then hookup MP3 then open My Computer on your desktop. Find the new device. Click on it, it should open and you should see different files. In the music file you can now get the music on your computer and click and drag to your MP3. you should see some type of downloading when this happen. Then check mp3 to see if music was loaded.
