Question about Samsung DVD-V1000 DVD Player/VCR

1 Answer

Player won't play some of my DVD movies

I watched about 5 videos in a row but it won't play the last 2 newest disks.
It tells me that it is loading, then after a long pause, the screen notice tells me that it is 'Unable to read - disk error"

    I have the same problem and have done just about everything to try to get it to play a new disc. I cleaned the dvd with cleaner and let it dry. I tried different dvds thinking maybe that was the problem. I unpluged it from the wall and then plugged it back in and turned it back on...still gives me the same error message....now what?

    I have the same problem with some DVDs working fine and others just won't load..keep getting message of disc error or something..On mine, I took it apart and adjusted how high the DVD sits above the lazer and that will correct the problem for some discs, but doesn't make all DVDs play..I've had the same problem with 2 different Samsung DVD/VCR players (V1000 and V5500)..bottom line is Samsung just plain makes junk DVD players.

    I've used this machine for five years without a problem; however, late last year, each DVD that I put in starts loading and then finally the unit registers the error message "disc error. unable to read disc."

I bought saints row 2 almost a year ago. I never played another game until last week and when I put in Saints row is stuck at 5% at the loading screen after the logo. Plz help me


It is normally the disc that either is scratched, has dust on it or is dirty.

You can clean the disc with warm water if it is dirty, that won't damage it, but don't use boiling water, that would be crossing the line.

If the game is scratched, you might check your nearest GameStop, they might have this disc fixer, or whatever they call it. They have it here in Norway, so I guess they have it most places around the world. :)

How Do I Bypass Cinavia On My PS3 Console?


Put film on pause, exit, watch another film for 20 minutes. Return, watch film until message comes up again, pause, exit go back to other film for another 20 minutes. Etc. Eventually you will see the whole film after 4-5 shifts. Otherwise, shun Sony.

You know streaming video is so slow.

When I try to watch a video it will play a few seconds then stop then will play again for a few seconds what can i do


this happens if you have a slow internet connection...

There is a high demand for the video

your video card is not up to snuff...

cheap fix... pause the video and wait till the red bar is all the way to the right or full...

then play...

if that still doesn't work then

upgrade memory... and do the pause trick

still doesn't work... upgrade video card and try pause trick...

still doesn't work... get a new computer...

Playing Flash movies pauses for 1/2 sec every 5-7 seconds


Try this technique: download one of the many free programs from the web that allows you to download the FLV videos onto your computer. Play the video that way. Look for a version that works for your MacBook. Post back your results.

When I try to watch video tutorials or utube I get stalls


It is because the web browser has to pre load some of the video before playing it. If your internet isn't fast enough the video pauses while it loads the next section. Try pausing the video and waiting a minute or two before playing it.
