Check the Player Manual what types of disck it can play
There is great diversity o among player makes with what they can do.
Also if you have burned this disk it must be Finalized in the burner before any other device can play it.

Error reading any dvd disks

Have you tried a DVD+/-RW ?

The noises that you are hearing will be the spindle motor trying to spin the DVD as the lifting presentation tray for the read/write head has not located, if the media is not spinning this will never be able to read the lead in on any DVD as it has not presented the disc in the correct place.

If is is out of guarantee then I suggest that you check to see if the DVD is spinning by removing the top cover with the power OFF then eject the tray and try to load the media a small touch of the DVD in the clockwise motion should cause the media to start spinning, this is for diagnosis only if this is the case then the spindle motor will need changing

DVD Player stops reading disc Error message :

usually this happens when lens cannot read the the disc. Due to few reason 1 Your disk is scratched 2 Your DVD lens is covered with dust 3 You need to replace DVD lens
Try another few CD/DVD to rectify whether there is any problem with dvd you are trying to play
if this error occurs on all the dvd you played then the most likely proble is with your DVD lens either its coverd with dust use Disk cleaner if not you got to replace a new DVD lense as per model

Samsung dvd 1080-p7 will not load disks..getting error message no disc or cant read this disk..was working fine last time i used it

I've been having the same prob... bought the DVD player a bit more than a yr ago. It won't read any disc, audio or video and after loading for a while, it gives me a NODSC error. I tried using the compressed air and also chatted w/ samsung c. service, which told me to reset the device (FF for 15 sec), with nothing happening... It's been only a bit over a year and I have no warranty on the DVD player, so I can't ask for service. If I won't find a solution I will have to buy a new DVD player, but I m trying to solve this prob first. Does anyone have an idea of what to do?

DVD will not load/format new disk

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.

My SD1009U not sensing the DVD.

Some of the panasonic models had motor problems that cuased them to start not reading disks and give a error code on the display. Maybe yours just has a dirty laser pickup and you MIGHT be able to gently clean it off and see if it will play again, other then that it might well be worn out. most newer machines have a dual laser pickup, one is tuned for pressed cd's and DVD 's and the other is tuned for cdrw and dvdrw style disks.
