Re: dvd's won;'t play
The laser lens may need to be cleaned with rubbing alcohol and cotton swab. Just remove the cover of the player and clean the lens. This usually corrects the problem. If cleaning doesn't help, the laser is defective

From your description it is hard to tell if the problem is from the disk or the player. Can you try another disk? If that loads and plays the problem is with the previous disk you tried to load. If there is a problem with the DVD player, it will be cheaper to buy a new one than try to repair. You can even find DVD players at some of the resale shops for under $10. Good luck.
There are little gears to open the tray with a little rubber belt that drives it you should be able to open door and pull on tray to get disk out if not unplug it take top off push tray out Cheapper to replace player than to fix but little flap should pull down grab tray and pull
your dvd player wornt play the disk you are playing? Try to consult the region code of the player and the disk you are trying to play make sure they are of the same region..also clean the lens with a cotton buds moistened with an alcohol gently wipe it on the lens.post again if you have further question..
Not necessarily time for a new one. I would give the DVD player a good cleaning before you consider a new unit. A good cleaning disk with some little bristles on it. Run it through three full times. DVD players are far more sensitive than VCRs and have to be cleaned even two weeks or so. When they get real dirty it can take some fooling with to get the DVD player to even accept the cleaning disk. But if it just won't accept the cleaning disk and you can't watch a DVD in it then it's time for a new one. I had a DVD player one time that took an hour of fooling around with before it got cleaned good enough to play DVDs. Worked for a couple years afterward.
I have got exactly the same problem. Thought I had found some discs that worked as the first one formatted, since then all have come up with that crappy error protection message. Samsung really should sort this out.
open it and check for a broken part in one of the gears that operate the drive. if the unit is under warranty, take it back rather than try to fix it. either something is in the mechanical portion of the unit, or it is badly worn. i would suspect a broken part from the noise issue/ clicking sounds. the read head runs on a track and could be jammed up, unable to run to access the directory of the disc. inspect what you can get to, and hopefully that will be a simple fix. good luck mark
When you say it won?t read are you trying to play commercial DVD movies or read DVD data disks?
If you're trying to play movies then you need a couple of things the first being some type of player program. Real player works as does Windows media player but usually DVD drives come with a striped down version of PowerDVD or WinDVD.
If you in fact have a player installed and when a DVD is inserted in your drive it doesn't play it may not be configured to automatically play DVDs. Try opening your player program and trying to manually play your DVD.
Let us know if you have any success or if you need more assisted. If you do let us know what player program and operating system you have and any error messages that may appear.
