Hi all.
I have 'a' solution. It is a pain in the neck but what I do is just keep closing the drawer after the message "this disk can neither be played or recorded, please check disk" comes on screen until it does what it is meant to do.
I am only doing this to clear off the hard drive then I am going to buy another machine.

I have never been able to play a slideshow 0n my dv454 no matter where i had the discs burned what am i doing wrong? ps the discs play in other dvd players

Check to make sure that the format of the discs burned are acceptable by the dvd player, some companies do not support certain formats. refer to owner manual as to which ones are readable on your particular dvd player. if the dvd player plays other regular/non-burned discs, this is the probable issue,...more info is needed if this is not solution.

best of luck

Returns error message :Unknown Disc. Please Check Disc Again" The DVD disc plays on other DVD players with no problem.

Problem may be reset needed, or lens need cleaning, or dvd recoreder worn out. Reset is pull the plug from the wall for 5 minutes. Turn it back on after reset to load firmware again, may work after that.. TDK makes lens cleaner. LG uses fan so, dirt can get into dvd recorder lens. If the tray moves out wiggly, laser assembly may move wiggly too. Replace dvd recorder which is a dvd+-rw regular ide unit from computers.

Sp k-970 dvd player will not play. played 1 dvd whenfirst bought now will not play any

1) Reset DVD player by powering unit off and unplugging from wall outlet for 30 seconds, then try again
2) Run a DVD cleaner

Are you getting a "No Disc" Message no matter what disc you use? Are you getting the message no matter what type of disc you use - commercial DVD vs burned DVD? If you are only having problems with burned DVD's, then make sure the discs are finalized.

Is the TV on the right channel?

If all else fails, call the manufacturer.

Not recognizing DVD player

i would say for some reason your dvd player is not compatible from now on with that brand of blank dvd!

get the firmware update from the brand website all you do is download the file burnit on a cd and put it in the dvd player should fix most and eventual problems
