"wrong disk" message appears after load time

After inserting a video DVD, after about a minute of "loading" time I get a high-pitched series of beeps emitted, followed by a "wrong disk" message and no play whatever. What might be the source of this problem?

If this happens on more than one DVD, it might be necessary to clean the lens of the DVD player. Safe commercial products are available at local drug stores for around ten dollars.
The "wrong disk" message is usually associated with Data disks, i.e. those having computer files rather than DVD movie files.
If this is an older DVD player, the DVD may have been written on a high-speed DVD writer which creates smaller data spots which may not be read correctly on older DVD players.
Barring these problems, it is probably just broken. DVD players, although not having as many moving parts as VCRs, do not last indefinitely.

Make sure you are using the right disk IE, DVD-R or DVD+R. Most Newer DVD player's will play DVD-R but very few play DVD+R

WHEN DVD IS PLACED IN MACHINE IT KEEPS TRYING TO LOAD BUT NO PLAY


yes that is very possible. cleaning the lens of the dvd player should happen atleast once a month. it can also be that the lens itself is scratched or the lase does not reach the disk tracks due to dust or bad handling

"Wrong Disk" error


I would assume that you finalized the disk after you burned them. THat being the case try the disk on another DVD player. If that does not work try burning another disk. Its possible that its either a failed burn, a picky DVD player or plain defective disc. So the only option left is to isolate the probelm.

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.
