The (ziva-5) DVD processor IC in these units is frequently faulty. There's lots of similar complaints on message boaards all over. I had similar problems, had my unit repaired under warranty & problems returned about a year later. Eventually the DVD function stops working altogether & you can't shut even the unit down without a hard reset. Found the following tip "Solder a resistor of 820ohms between pin 203 of IC206". Reamrkably it works. If you're not game to do it yourself, get a technician to do it, cheap fix.

I have a similar problem.  After a seemingly random length of time, the counter on the display freezes and I cannot pause, stop or eject the DVD.  I can change volume, change function, etc but nothing useful.  The only way I can get the disc out it to turn the whole thing off and then back on.  Sometimes even this doesn't work first time...

I went to a Sony shop and they said I could have it looked at, but they charge £45 just to have a look!  Not sure it's worth it as I only paid a little over £200 for it.

You better start simulation before writing the dvd's in the writing softwares...
and hanging is not the problem by means of playing dvd's... try to play the same dvd's in some other system and then only you will come to a conclusion...

Dvd won't play or eject

If you want to get the dvd out
you can try this:
First turn of you dvd player at the mains, Then power it up, But the moment it powers up press the eject button a few times so it doesn't start to load. If it doesn't work the first time try it one more time since you may not get the hang of it at first.
then you dvd should eject.
With dvd players like this, corrupt, copied or really scratched dvds may make your dvd player do this.

HP dvd play on my laptop malfunctioning

grinding sounds is from the dvd drive itself. Sounds like its not sitting properly in the drive or the holder that it sits in is going bad. Either way replace the drive and that will take care of the grinding sounds. Also the more grinding sounds that happen, the more of a chance you take on your dvds getting scratches on them and going bad eventually.
