Disc inserted but NO DISK message appears


Try other discs to see if its still working properly...most likely the recording on the disc is not burnt properly or there's something wrong with the disc, (ie, scratched or surface dirt etc) or the DVD player just can't read the disc...for example can it read the type of disc(does it read dvd+r or dvd-r, or both?--- if i remember rightly)..... I've had discs that have had bad recordings but can still be read if placed into tray a particular way around... randomly try different positions, also cleaning disc as you go...depending on how desperately you want it to read the disc...could also be bad disc batch... there could be many reasons...

Wont read discs


follow this steps, and use the common sense.God bless you
If the player skips, make sure that the DVD disc is not dirty or scratched..Use the cleaner disk buy it from R. Shack.
If the tray won't open or close properly, check the belt for dirt or wear. Then check the tray for misalignment. If needed, remove, clean, lubricate, and reinstall the tray following the instructions in the owner's manual.

Trying to record on a DVD-R , after several minutes trying to load i get a msg saying it can neither read nor play this disc , check disc,,please help


I've had this problem with trying to record on CD-Rs also. DVD and CD recorders can be very fussy. You just have to get a piece of dust or a fingerprint on the CD or DVD that's being recorded onto and it gets kicked back as a check disc or blank disc..

Another problem is some recorders will only accept certain brands. I've had problems recording onto a SONY CD-R with a SONY recorder! So, in summing up, try a different brand or make sure the disc is clean. Sometimes just taking the disc out and putting it back in in a different position will make the recorder think it's an OK disc. Hope this helps.

One of my game dvd can't be read properly.Whenever I'm trying to install the game it is showing an error report showing a corrupted file.The same thing is happenening when I'm trying to extract...


It may be possible that the Game DVD is corrupted. Try to use the DVD on a different computer to ensure that the disc is fine. If it is working on a different computer that means the DVD is working fine. Instead of installing the game directly from the DVD try to copy the entire contents of the dvd to your computer and then try to install it from the computer.

If the above doesn't work you can try to use REVO uninstaller to completely remove the Game from the computer and then try to re-install it.

Hope this will resolve your issue.

Dvd player won't play disc


The DVD read head may need to be cleaned. Sometimes perfectly OK drives also fail to read certain discs. If the problem is persistent, i.e. the notebook won't read any discs, then clean the head (with a head cleaner) and try again. If it starts working, fine.. If not, then you may have to replace the DVD drive. If the problem is only related to playing one particular DVD, then its the DVD that is faulty.
Hope this helps.

Im trying to play a dvd and game on my hp dvd player on my laptop and it says there is no disc in the drive?


Clean the disc well and try again. Then try putting another disc in the drive and see if it will read that disc. Try your dvd game disc in another computer and see if it is accessible there. Sounds like the disc drive is possibly bad and can't read the disc properly.

My phillips dvd player (model DVP5990) is not reading disc at all no matter the format. any ideas?


This could be several problems. You should first try to clean the laser head with a cleaning disc. If this does not work you can try resetting the dvd player to the factory settings. This function is found in the settings section under preferences. Use you remote control to open the settings menu and use the up and down arrows to highlight the preferences section. Press ok to enter the sub-menu. Use the up and down arrows to highlight the default setting.Press ok. You have now reset the dvd player to the factory settings. Press the menu button again to escape the menu. All this information is in the owners manual on page (47). Try a dvd to see if the dvd player is working properly. If not you may have other problems that will require you to open the dvd player up to find the problem. These problems could be a laser lens that is not functioning properly or a problem with the transport that is use to set the dvd up for reading by the laser lens. For these problems it is best to have a qualified technician to troubleshoot the problem.You can call phillips customer support at this telephone number 1-800-744-5477. Tell them the model number of your dvd player and the problem you are having with disc player not reading discs. They will be able to help you get service for the dvd player.I hope this information helps you with your problem.

Ps2 keeps saying disk read error everytime disk is put in no matter what disk is put in what can i do to fix


  • Confirm the disc is inserted correctly into the PlayStation 2 console (label side should be facing up when the PlayStation 2 console is in the horizontal position).
  • Confirm the disc is clean. To clean a disc, use lint-free cleaning cloths made specifically for cleaning CD/DVD discs, sold at computer software stores. When cleaning the disc, we recommend starting from the innermost circle, and wiping out to the edge in a straight line. We do not recommend wiping in a circular motion, as it may create more scratches on the disc. [Note: Other materials, such as a paper towel or a T-shirt, may also scratch the disc. If there are any scratches, smudges, or fingerprints on the disc, it may not function properly.]
  • Try playing different CDs, DVDs, and games on the PlayStation 2 console to see if the problem exists across multiple discs.
  • To determine if the problem is with the disc itself, try playing the disc on a different PlayStation 2 console (or a PS oneTM or a standalone CD/DVD player, if applicable).
  • Confirm that you are not using any game modification devices. Unlicensed devices such as game modification devices can interfere with the proper function of the software. We do not recommend the use of any game modification devices or unlicensed products[1].
