I have a Samsung DVD R160 recorder. A few days ago the recorder was not on and it was making a noise like it was trying to read a disk. This went on for quite a while. I then turned it on and it would...


Try this, look for a small hole on the front of the unit.Use a pin and press in to see if it opens,ejects the disk .If no hole try seeing if you can press ,lift,pull at the door/slot while pressing the open door/eject either on the unit or with the remote control.It sounds like you may have a bad CD/DVD (copy) that the unit is trying to read/load but can't. keep trying to eject CD/DVD if this doesn't work unplug unit for 5 minutes,try open door again do press and hold open repeatedly I know it's frustrating but it just may eject.Don't use this recorder for playback of DVD buy a $30 DVD player the cheaper the better they play anything.GOOD LUCK

My computer display error disk reading while it is


check your disk for scratches etc and make sure it is clean. Then, using the disk, reformat the hard disk and re-install from there. DONT take the disk out of the drive unless the installation program asks you too. Once the install program releases control and you have entered any names and passwords, then you can remove the disk. Once everything is finished, make sure you re-install your mainboard drivers next. If you no longer have this disk, you can download them from the PC's manufacturer or the mainboards manufacturer.

Won't read diisc and makes funny noise


Check first to make sure there are not Two (2) disks in the tray.
The disk may not be seated completely in the tray.
The disk may be upside down.
Try a different disk. If it plays properly, the disk in question is probably bad
