Re: cannot read disc
I had(have) the same problem. called panasonic's support # and they said there was no firmware update available that would fix the problem. They said it had to be "serviced", by which i'm assuming they mean the DVR drive needs to be replaced (or at a minimum the laser). They said it would cost about $135US...
personnally i'm just going to go out and buy a more reliable burner/player since i have a good VCR already anyways.

Turn on the DVD player. It generally takes a few seconds to get going. Take out the DVD if there's one in the drive already.
Make sure the disc isn't scratched or dirty. Use a soft rag to clean the disc if you see any smudges. Insert the CD into the DVD player's disc drive and close it.
Press the "Play" button on the DVD player or remote control. Some DVD players will begin reading the disc automatically. Pushing the button works just as well.
Use the "Scene Selection" buttons on your remote to select a track. Some DVD players have odd ways of ordering the buttons on the remote. You might have to play around a bit before you find all the right buttons to work the CD playing function of your machine.
Crank it up and enjoy your music. The DVD player will act just like a CD player and play the tracks of the CD through the TV.

Where u live Canada,US or Mexico?DVD players in these countries.It play only NTSC signal format.U can't change DVD players regions format,only can a DVD players that have regions free to play all DVDs discs of the world.
If this is a Desktop computer it is in.. Make sure 1st it is recognised in "My computer" (icon present) Check it will play / read other discs Check the connectors (SATA or IDE) are plugged into the back of the DVD and the power rail is tight. Also if there is a CD to Mobo lead from the back of the DVD make sure it is plugged in If it spins the discs, and there is no rattling etc, the drive is probably working ok. If you are trying to play movie DVD's, software such as Cyberlink or similar is required
If this is a laptop DVD, check it is seen in "my computer" (Icon present) Check as for Desktop with regard to the correct DVD player software being present
Finally, check that you have the sound drivers installed (will show under the speaker icon in control panel). If still stuck, repost wioth more info
should i assume that the drive work previouly with com dvd? my annlysis of this problem is that the dvdrom is not able to read the format the dvd is in. the format of the hard drive does not determine the ability to read or not read a dvd. that is the job of the optical disc.so dont worry about the format that is in.ok. the other aspect of the ability to read dvd is the software. windows media player and other that are of age has a inability to play some new format dvd. best bet install the newest version of power dvd put the disc and check should start automat pending setting you may need to go to my computer and double clickon the romdrive. let me know.
Are you trying to play DVD's you've made or copied yourself or new one's you buy from an actual distributor? Because sometimes self-ripped Cd's & DVD's won't play on a LOT of DVD players. Otherwise it's bad DVD player and you should go get it swapped out if it's not too late.
