Question about DVD & Blu-Ray Players
My parents have this device for about 1.5 years, but it was operated 3-4 times only!!! Recently I brought some DVD-RW with pictures on it, but device refused to read it. Actually, the device was powered on, the noise of spinning disk got out, but always got "no disk" message. I tried over and over again. I even tried delicately to hit it several times - nothing. I tried another DVD disk - the same result.
After a couple days I tried to resolve the problem once again - I was surprised to find out that the device still reading and playing CD disks (music or video), however not accepts any type of DVD disk (regular or rewritable).

Try cleaning the lasers lens with an anti static cleaning wipe. I used " nice'n clean" that I had purchased from Walmart to clean my laptop screen. My dvd player started back playing after gently wiping the laser lens.

My Smasung DVD/VCR Combo stopped reading DVDs because of a dirty read head. It started by only playing disks sometimes, and progressed to never playing disks. I assumed it was a dirty laser lens so I bought a lens cleaner set. Unfortunately my player wouldn't play the cleaner disk.
So I took it apart and cleaned the laser lens manually with some isopropyl alcohol (the clenser that came with my cleaning disk), and a lens cloth (that came with my glasses). Just open the case (starting with the screws in the back) and remove the snap in cross panel that obscures the lens of the DVD portion. Put a drop of cleanser on the lens and gently wipe it with the cloth.
Oh and by the way, I take no responsibility if you break your own player while following my instructions. My own DVD player was far out of warranty at the time I cracked it open.

You need to convert avi files to dvd format before burning, otherwise the player won't recognize them. Google "avi to dvd" and you'll find a number of free or pay programs that will do the conversion for you.
