DVD-R130 Says "Disk is unreadable"

Turns on, just doesn't load the disk. I got a cleaning disk, didn't work. I took the lid off and blew air from a can (compressed air) at the read laser head. It worked for a while but now it doesn't help at all.

    Insert any DVD disc (blank or copied) , the player won't load, just shows loading and loading for sometime and ejects out the disc, saying this disc cannot be played.

    Thanks for all the tips, I guess I was lucky this time, I called samsung and they told me that they will send me a new one since the unit I purchased was still under one year warranty.

I had the same problem and after reading and trying allot of disks I found the following to work.

Used Maxell - RW disk. Did a complete format on my computer (takes a while). Burned a DVD using Vista DVD burner with only a Jpg as per one of the other posts. Once the disk plays. Stop and goto disk management and format using DVD-V (VR did not work).

I know its not pretty but at least its better than throwing it in the garbage bin.

My dvd drive doesn't work


If it happens for only one particular disk:
Bring that disk to a game store like Gamestop or Rock30 Games and have them professionally clean the disk for a couple bucks.

If it happens for all disks:
Clean the cd/dvd with a laser lens cleaning kit. If that doesn't fix it then the cd/dvd drive will need to be replaced.

Dis is unreadable for the game black ops


There is a good chance that your game is scratched. Try cleaning it using the steps below:

Hold the disk by the outer edge (side with writing on it should face towards the floor) and make sure your fingers don't touch the clear part of the disk.

Dampen a soft cloth that will not scratch the surface (microfiber cleaning cloths work best). Starting from the center of the disk, wipe in a straight line to the outer edge. Do not rub in circular motions. Repeat until entire surface has been cleaned.

If this doesn't work, try restarting the Xbox and opening and closing the disk tray a few times.

If it is still unreadable, I'd recommend taking the disk to a local game store. Many places will offer a "buffing" service to clean the disk that can cost approximately $5-$10. There is chance that this will render the game unusable, so only do this as a last resort.

Hope this helped,
Dan

"No Read" display...99% of the times.


OK. Since the laser cleaning disk could not be read I used a can of air (used for air brushing) and blew air into the disk opening. I thought I might clean any dust that may have collected around any parts that needed to be cleaned. This seemed to have worked. It is also possible that dust accumulated in an area that would not allow the disk to line up properly. This could explain why it worked sometimes. If this continues as a problem I will use the EZ17 only as a tuner for my EZ55.

Screen comes on, disk turns, loading starts, and doesnt stop


With the power turned off, open the DVD Player, and then open the top where you load the DVD into the player. Locate the laser lens 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 working unit again This is a factory solution from Mintek that was given to a customer who ask for help with the forever loading disc problems. This solution may work on other models of portable DVD players. Most portable DVD players use this type of transport mechanism. Try this solution it might work for you.

XBOX 360 ASSESINS CREED UNREADABLE DISK


I do believe its a problem with the disk. The disk may not be scratched or anything but it could possibly something internally wrong with it. I'd take the disk back and exchange it. Hope this helped! Have a great day!
