It will play music cd's all the time however it has a mind of it's own when it wants to lay dvd's. Sometimes the dvd will play other times it will take a long time to load then play for just a few seconds, stop, then an error display message "bad disc" will show even though it could be a new dvd. I read that someone else had the same problem but the only suggestion given was to make sure the data side of dvd is face down and wipe of any smudges off or take any stickers off of it. I've done all this. Any other suggestions than taking it will greatly be appreciated since taking it to Best Buy to get fixed is out of the option. This problem has been driving me crazy I just want to watch a dvd.
Mine was having the same problem. I took the case off, blew some compressed dusting spray(the kind that doesn't leave a residue) across the lens and the problem went away. Often, when the lens on laser devices gets dirty, they have a difficult time reading. Try this with any laser device that is acting up.

There is a difference between a CD "music usually or data" and "DVD". Some players/computers only play CD's. Some are DVD/CD players/writers. Which is yours. If you have a CD player, it will never play a movie. Put in #1.a CD and try. If it works good. Then put in #2. a DVD it might not be a DVD player. Past that it would be a defective player. Get a lense cleaner disk at y computer/variety store". Insert it in your computer and run the program.lay a movie. If it is scratched or dirty. Clean and try again. No luck, You have a bad player of software issue. The Disk player can be slid out and replaced at any computer store. $59? Good Luck. John
Kindly check first your software of your system.. sometimes occurred due to low performance of a system (software). do one thing, if the music your playing is from the disk... try to copy all that music from the disk and paste temporary to your hard drive.. once your done coping.. try to play the music from you hard drive.... if still same operation of your complain, means that the problem was on software....
I would give it a good cleaning with a disk player cleaning. Those disks have little bristles on them that "sweep" the lens and clean it real well. Remember that if the lens is so dirty that it won't play any DVD you may need to run that cleaner disk a few times to get the lens back to normal working condition.
A lens cleaner disk should be ran one time a week to avoid problems with playing disks be it CD or DVD or Computer.
Sometimes players go bad so keep in mind this could be the problem as well but I have had the DVD player in my garage get so dirty I had to clean it a few times to get it to work normal.
Check the type of the blank CD/DVD you are using. Certain players won't be able to play CD-RW for instance.
If that doesn't solve the problem you might try to slow down your burn speed for a better quality CD/DVD. Sometimes a faster burn speed will lower the quality and other devices can have trouble reading these.
With the power turned off, open the DVD Player, and
then open the top where you load the DVD into the player. Locate the
and notice that the laser is attached to a transport assembly that
moves the laser
diagonally outward in a slot. 1. Slide this assembly outward to the end
of its track. 2. Slide the assembly back inward to the closest inward
position. 3. Repeat the process of sliding the assembly outward and then
back inward.4. Put in a music CD and let it play all the way through.
This helps to calibrate the laser head assembly movement. When the
music CD is finished playing. 5. Put in a DVD, and you should have a

solution it might work for you. I hope this information helps you with your problem.
Might be the type of movie - some of them are only able to play "G" ratings. Try this: click <play> 1234 <play> It will likely unlock the dvd that is in and will begin to play. You will have to do the 'code' each time, or there's an unlock program you can purchase.
