Re: skips or won't play disc if even slightly scratched
The optics might be dirty or the pickup assembly might need alignment. In the former case you can get an optics cleaning kit and try to clean the laser LED and pickup assembly. For the latter cause you will need to have thre unit aligned at a TV repair shop.

did you mean your DVD disc can not play in some dvd players,if so then my answer to your querry would be that some dvd players have more powerful lens to read bulky data in a disc that some machines can not read. also note that some machines are very sensitive such that they do not play discs with viruses,with scratches or any other defects. this is to safeguard the lens from being damaged due to the same though some machines will play barely all discs no matter the scratches.
You may need to get the discs repaired or it may be your laser in the player need cleaning. Easiest soloution is to basically clean your disc(playside). Check for scratches on both sides of your disc. If the label side is scratched in any way, it might be unrepairable as this is where the data is stored, if the playside is scratched they are repairable. You can try home remedies if the scratches are very slight, if not professional repair is required. Try other discs in your player, if they are not working either, then it may the players laser is dirty and may need a laser cleaner, fairly cheap in some stores.
If it's the disc thats scratched visit www.discREPAIR.ie for FAQs and futher help or disc repairs.
Not all media discs are playable in all machines.Not all formats are supported in all machines.Coppied and Bootleg discs will not play on expensive players.Dirty,figerprints,badly scratched,all will have problems.Use a disc cleaner (liquid,and fine cloth) to remove scratches.Buy a $ 25-35 cheap player they play anything.Good Luck.
If it only happens with one disc, try using a Disc Doctor/Skip Doctor on it. These instruments will repair scratches and depending on the disc, repair pinholes in the disc. Usually it's just polishing the surface of the disc. Some instruments totally resurface the disc by stripping off a thin layer of the disc to remove scratches and other damage. (Used game/music stores will do this).
If the rented DVD is too scratched it will cause the DVD player to pause while it tries and find the next available playable area on the disc. This may cause the player to skip to another part of the movie. Try wiping the disc with a damp cloth from the centre towards the outer rim and dry the same way. Fingerprints ect. also cause problems. If the scratches are circular the player will have a hard time trying to play the disc. If the scratches are straight and small it shouldn't cause too much problems.
