Unknown Disc Message

I have made several DVDs in the past. Now when I put in a new disk to initialize, it shows that it has an unknown disc and won't format it. I have tried several different brands od DVDs, but none have worked.

    Have tried several different types and only DVD-R will copy correctly. I would prefer to use the DVD-RW so that I could edit the contents of the discs.

I bought DVD-RW discs but it comes up as Unknown Disc. Can you tell me what to do


If the disk in the drive shows it is a unknown disk , you must check the disk is good or bad , to check the disk , please follow the instruction,
put the dvd -rom in the drive , at the moment it shows unknown disk , select right click for properties of the disk , it shows the disk usage with a diagram , if the disk usage is on pink colour your disk is free and ready to use . otherwise the disk colour is blue in colour , it is due to manufacturing defect . it can be only cleared by replacing the disk with new one .

Unknown disk error when putting disk in player.


hello,

when the disc player shows unknown disc error, it simply implies that the lens of the player is weak and cannot read the disc.

the solution is for you to try to clean the lens with a lens cleaner or better still replace the lens.

take care

After disc is loaded, it says "unknown disc."


Is it a pirated dvd? If it is, do you know some dvd players won't read pirated dvds? And if it isn't, then your dvd player may be dirty (the lens). For that you would have to buy a cleaning disk. You can get one at Radioshack. Or maybe what type of dvd type is it? Is it dvd-r, dvd-rw, or what? Some dvd players have trouble reading dvd-rw sometimes.

Hope this helps.

When trying to play DVDs the words unknown disc title appears. Even after several attempts with various DVDs we havent had any success.


have u tried cleaning the hea of ur dvd player?after using a dvd player or cd player for long times of continous play say 6 months or if u play too many scratched discs and u dont clean the head of the player it starts skipping the disc or many a times dosnt recognise the disc so it'll give u errors like "Unknown Disc", "Disk Error" etc so i would really recommend u to clean its head using a dvd head cleaner cd.. its easily available in the video stores or malls.. u can purchase any dvd head cleaner cuz there are number of manufatcures for this. im sure this would solve ur issue.
PLEASE DO RATE ME,WOULD REALLY APPRECIATE IT

DVD won't recognize the disk message below


Try running a DVD cleaner through it and see what happens. You can get one at Walmart for under $10. If that doesn't do the trick then take it to someone that can open it up to clean it.
