New DVDs won't play

Dear Experts:
I have loved my Toshiba sd-2700 BUT.......over the past two days I've rented and borrowed 4 new movies. 3 would not play at all. All my old movies, etc. play but not these 3 new ones.
Has a new security protection been put on DVDs recently?
I noticed that 2 of the ones that wouldn't play said, "double layered". I've never noticed that before. Is that the problem?

Re: New DVDs won't play

I have the same problem with Ratatouille. I just purchased it, and neither of my players will play it.

Re: New DVDs won't play

What studio label? Some Newline DVDs appear to have some new protection, newer than the Sony ArcOS protection (or whatever it is called).

I cant play some blu-ray disc how can i get some of them to work

since it doesn't have enough RAM in it, some BDs or larger multi-layer DVDs fail to play/load entirely Its slow to buffer BD, and even slower to upscale DVDs. It doesn't support homemade DVD+/-R movies. It also doesn't support video on CD.

to get the movie to play add a 4GB SD card into it and format it for use as extra memory. Apparently, some BDs require a lot of memory. By adding the SD card, DVDs and THE BDs load faster and have no play problems. The overall downside to the RAM issues and the SD card is that, when the SD card gets full,you will have to reformat it to get anything to play. Tho, all lost disc info needs to be rebuffered onto the card the next time you watch the movie.

Toshiba dvr will load some dvds & not others

My machine has also done this since it was new. I was just about to bring it in for repair when I thought I would try one more thing. I turned on the recorder. I put in the movie that would not play and let it load (of course it would not load). I pushed the on/off button on the recorder and held it down until the "wait" message came up on the display. After the message disappeared I turned the recorder back on. To my surprise the movie loaded and played. I tried all the other movies I had trouble with and they also played. I hope this helps. I saved my self over 200 dollars in repair bills. I was quite surprised at the lack of help from toshiba.

New dvd movie will not play

I rented Rush Hour 3 from blockbuster along with Woodcock and both did not play on my Sylvania DVD player. I did take them and put them on my computer and their was a page that came up INTERACTUAL
This DVD is enhanced with interactive features designed exclusively for use on a computer.
PLAY DVD with enhanced features (that prompted a download)
or PLAY DVD without enhanced features and you can play the DVD movie on your small home computer screen.
I believe that the DVD producers have added the ENHANCED FEATURES to be used on a computer and in so doing they do not work at least not on the Sylvania DVD players.

Toshiba SD 4800 dvd player

I've had the same symptoms on the last two Sony DVD's that I've rented. I managed to get around this by hitting one of the menu buttons after the loading message stopped.

Movie Freezing

Sounds like youe unit is getting tired my freind. they dont make em like they used to. The unit most likly needs a tracking or focus servo alighnment, but to put it on a bench, and have a tech adjust the alighnments, will most likly exceed the cost of a new unit. The laser could also be getting weak, and the replacement optical assemblies for this unit alone cost about 60 bucks. Then you have labor and alighnment cost, as you don't just throw in an optical pickup assembly and it works. Good Luck Please, do not forget to rate this thread.

Movie skips and freezes during play

CD and dvd disc cleaners will not solve the problem, a deeper and delicate cleaning procedure by cleaning the lens manually with an cotton swab is needed...
Although the quality of newer discs is to be discussed.
