The disc player suddenly stops playing and says no disc even if there is disc on the shelf


Your disc player has a "lens or eye" that reads the electronic signal from your disc and transform that signal into a video image and audio sound. The reason why it stops playing and says there's no disc inside is because it fails to read the signal. The lens or eye may have acquired dirt that's blocking the signal. Try to open your disc player and locate the lens located on the center of the rotating disc holder. It is very easy to locate because it is directly under the disc. It is round, very small and made of glass. Get a cotton ear bud or just a small piece of cotton, moisten it with alcohol, or nail polish remover then wipe the lens. By doing it, you are removing the dirt that may have accumulated while you were using your disc player. It is highly advisable that you switch on all your electronic gadgets at least twice a week even if you're not using them. By doing this, you are preventing your electronic devices from acquiring moisture due to heat/coldness in the environment.
Another possibility, the format of the disc that you inserted (mp3, mp4, blueray, dvd) is not compatible with your player and therefore your player was not able to decode/read the signal.

there are a few reasons why

1.) the formatting of the disk may be formatter for a PC and NOT a MAC
2.) after burning, this dvd was never "closed"
3.) You burned a coaster

INSERT DISC PLAYER STARTS TO READ,AFTER A READING FOR A MIN,SCREEN READS INSERT DISC?


The disc drive is not reading and so after it tries on for some time the drive does not detect and so fails to read. You can try and clean the optical lens unit manually using an ear bud with delicate wipes on the lens eye. If this wont change the error then the optical unit is faulty and will need a change.

Hi. I have a Sony MZ-N710 Mini-Disc Walkman which wont read discs and also does not charge. If power is connected via the charging station or directly, or via external battery adapter the spinning disc...


Possible that the optical head unit has failed in your walkman and might need a replacement. It will be adviceable to seek the cost factor of a replacement unit of Sony that might turn out expensive ... to the entire cost of the set.
So unless the optical head reads there is no data transfer or processing.

When I put the disc in, a window pops up that says put in the correct disc. but it is the only one I own


Sounds like your computer is having difficulty reading the disc.
Try ejecting the disc and re-inserting when this message pops up.
If this fails,try cleaning the disc. Most game stores or video stores will buff it for you for a small fee.
If this fails as well,then it could be your settings.
Does your computer have all the needed requirements to run the game? Is it compatible?
If your answers are yes,then it could be that the disc is bad...try different settings,and the aforementioned ideas and if these all fail I would try and return the disc.
