The usual reason for a drive to report "No Disc" is that the Reader eye is dirty or past its servicable life. this will be shortened in a Smoky or Dusty environment, A Cleaning disc (Preferably wet and dry) in the drive may solve the problem if the drive is dirty, if not then a replacment reader or drive are the only options.
If the Player is still within warranty I suggest you send it n.

We have a spectroniq pdv-768. When we put in a disc and it try to load it it come back and says WRONG DISC. How do we get it to read the disk and play?

If your dvd player on your flat panel tv says "wrong disc" then it usually means that the format used to create the disc is not compatible with your player. Read the manual that came with your tv to figure out what file formats are acceptable for burned discs. Try another disc. Verify with a store bought disc that your player works. If it plays regular discs and not home made or burned media, then you will know that its just the file format used when the disc was created that is causing the issue.

Not reading disc

If Wii gives Disc Read Error, First step you need to check is to try another disc or clean the exisitng disc. This will confirm that problem is with either Wii or Disc. If the console itself is giving disc read error then it needs to be repaired. You may check out DIY Wii Fix Guide, that will show step by step information to fix the problem yourself. It also gives Information on fixing many Wii Related Problems, so its a kind of Wii Problems Reference Fix Guide

Inside the machine the laser will sometimes adjust itself to a position just out of reach of the disc and you will get a "default message", so it doesn't necessarily mean you have the "wrong disc". This can be adjusted by yourself or take it in to be done. This is only, of course that you have covered the basics and cleaned the discs and inside machine. Just blow in it even, they do attract dust as dvd's are like a magnet to dust.
