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."

The problem is in the laser pickup assembly, the stepper motor that moves the laser is sticking on the worm gear or excessive ware on the gear linkage is preventing it from moving.

I have prepared a home movie on Windows Movie Maker and when I copied it to a DVD it would not play on a dvd player can anyone tell me what I did wrong please thanks joe


The reason why the DVD disk you created may not contain the file format the DVD player recognizes. On a normal DVD disk there are two folders - AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS folders. The video files are located in the VIDEO_TS folder. This video folder contains the VTS_xxx.vob video files (the video files has a .vob extension).
The video file you created may have a avi or wmv or mov or mpg extension, whilst these video files can be played on a computer but they won't play on a DVD player.
Check the movie software you are using and make sure it creates the correct file format for a DVD player.

Dvd player only plays some movies


it might be sevral reasons:
1. Check if region code is the same for movies you playing and DVD player
2. If you using video CDs or copyed DVDs, player might be preventing to playback those kind of discs, due to copyright laws or due to different speed settings for DVD player and discks you using (for intsrance you player can playback DVD/CD+R, and you using DVD/CD-R, or mximum allowed playback speed is 16 you using disk recorded at 24, but this is in case you using burned/copied CD/DVDs)
3. Check it lens is durty. For that use CD/DVD lens cleaning disk
($6 in Walmart, if you are in US)
4. Check if movies you are have the same coloring system, i.e NTSC for US
5. Check CD/DVD for scratches, some DVD players can not playback scratched disks
Please kindly let me know if my information was helpfull for you or you need more info
Good Luck

A content on DVD disk is not visible


Can you play the DVD's in a DVD player that is attached to a TV? Most DVD players will play an AVI file....Keep in mind that data will only last for 5 years on any CD or DVD......if it is stored correctly.....Heat Kills.....Let me know if you can get it to play on a regular DVD player...(NON PC)

Watching wmv files on DVd


MPEG-2 video is the file format you’ll need to convert to, but you cannot simply burn the MPEG-2 to a DVD and automatically play it in a DVD player.
The easily way is to buy software that will make the transition smooth; I recommend VSO Convert to DVD.
