A batch of Pioneer DVDRW back from 2004/2005 seem to fault after an unspecified amount of time passes by. I had one of those myself, but still keep since it reads normal DVDs perfectly. If you have access to another PC you could try swapping the DVDRW and see if it works normally on that PC (instead of going the lengthy way of backing up/ formatting your PC.) If it does not work, time to move on and buy another one.

DVD will not play. DVD unknown disc please check again


Could just be a dirty lens.
Try cleaning the lens with a good quality micr-fiber cloth found in eye-glass cleaning kits. May need to wet the tip of the cloth with rubbing alcohol .

Dvd drive dose not recognise any dvds i put in it keeps saying unknown disc


If your unit is older the optical pick up lens may be dirty or has gone bad. Most Philips units are exchange items only, meaning they replace it under warranty instead of fixing it, if its out of warranty there usually are no parts or service information on them. Philips was bought be Funai and is not the company it used to be. Check if the unit will play a audio CD, if it does the pickup assembly is bad, some will play a CD but not a DVD. You may be able to clean the p/u lens with alcohol and a Q-tip. The lens is under the clamp that holds the disc while spinning.

When trying to play DVDs the words unknown disc title appears. Even after several attempts with various DVDs we havent had any success.


have u tried cleaning the hea of ur dvd player?after using a dvd player or cd player for long times of continous play say 6 months or if u play too many scratched discs and u dont clean the head of the player it starts skipping the disc or many a times dosnt recognise the disc so it'll give u errors like "Unknown Disc", "Disk Error" etc so i would really recommend u to clean its head using a dvd head cleaner cd.. its easily available in the video stores or malls.. u can purchase any dvd head cleaner cuz there are number of manufatcures for this. im sure this would solve ur issue.
PLEASE DO RATE ME,WOULD REALLY APPRECIATE IT
THANX

Invalid disk


I contacted Gateway and found out that the AR-230 will not work with anything more than 4x DVD's. Usually it will format DVD-RW's but avoid memorex brand. Usually any other cheep brand will work.
