Get some white toothpaste. Rinse the disc in water then gently rub the toothpaste on the surface with a soft cloth. Do it in small circular motions. Rinse the disc clean then dry to see if it helped removed the scratches enough to be read. It may take you several tries but the toothpaste has a fine abrasive that will polish the disc to remove the scratches.

Soak the disc in distilled water with a teaspoon of dish washing liquid for a minute. Rinse it with warm water, shake excess water then air dry.

AVH P3100. What does error code 02-9e indicate?


Error 02-9E Means there is a scratched or otherwise unreadable disc. The problem could be the laser as well. This error can mean any of the following:
Scratched disc
Improper media Bad burn/copy of disc
Improperly adjusted laser - requires an alignment
Dirty Laser Lens (smokers will experience this more often)
Laser failure etc.
Try changing the CD/DVD you are using and if you are still getting the same error, then try to visit you nearest Pioneer Service center and get your headunit's laser tested for allignment. How much you'd invest for repair must be below the cost of a new one or it's not worth it.

How to play a scratched disc on xbox 360 or some other consoles


Note: I have only experienced using this trick on the XBox 360 Console.
One common problem that video game players have all the time are scratched discs. A helpful way around buying a brand new game or a disc scratch remover, is to first:

a.) Borrow the same version of the game from a friend
OR
b.) Rent the same version of the game from a store
Now, take the unscratched disc, and install it to your hard drive.
And lastly, now you can put in the scratched disc and go to "Game Library", choose the game, and select "Play from Hard drive."
The reason this trick works, is because when you play your disc from the hard drive, it uses minimal memory from the disc itself.
NOTE: Installing a disc to your hard drive does NOT replace having to put in the game to play it.
You still need a copy of the game in order to run it from your hard drive. I believe this is some security feature so people don't go around copying the games and not buying them.
Also, I would NOT install the scratched disc to your hard drive, for this will not help your problem at all.

It won't play a dvd! and when it does it just sits like it is stopped!!


Hello

Eject the DVD from the Cyberhome DVD player. Look over the bottom of the disc. If any dirt and fingerprints are present, remove them with a damp cloth, moving from the inner circle of the DVD to the outside.

Insert the DVD into a scratch repair device, if the DVD has any light scratches (deep scratches are not reparable). Turn on the DVD repair kit and the device literally sands down the scratch. When this is finished, the DVD should work correctly with the Cyberhome DVD player.

Avoid inserting homemade DVDs into the disc drive. The Cyberhome is not compatible with many self-created DVDs, causing a "Disc Read Error" message to appear on the screen.

Spray compressed air into the disc drive of the DVD player. The compressed air removes dust and other debris from the laser and reading lens in the player.

I have the same problem with my 2006 macbook pro and I need to install snow leopard, but I cant! CDs and DVDs will go in, i can hear the noise of the computer taking in my disk, but then it sits there for...


If your optical drive is not injecting DVDs/CDs, it can be either a problem with the drive itself our potentially the discs.

If the issue only happens with the Snow Leopard disc, contact Apple at 1-800-MY-APPLE and let them know as it may be defective disc.

Make sure the discs themselves are free of scratches and foreign substances. If there are light scratches, use a disc scratch repair solution/kit.

If the issue persists, try resetting your System Management Controller as per the following Apple article:

http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3964

If the issue persists after this, your Macbook Proo likely needs repair.

Dvd burner question


First off is the drive a read only drive or a Read/write drive? If you look at the front drawer check to see if there is a big RW(read/writable) on the front of the drawer. If it doesn't have the RW then you won't be able to burn discs. If it says RW then you will be able use it to copy DVDs. You accomplish this by using software to copy the disc you're interested in to your hard drive and then using the copy on the hard disc to copy back to a blank recordable DVD placed in to tray.
