It usually means that you either have the disk in upside down or its rejecting the disk for a number of reasons such as the disk is scratched or it has something stuck to the bottom. Hope this helped.=)

I have the Toshiba D-R410 it is several years old and I used it for quite a while making recordings in both DVD-R and DVD+R. And now a year and a half later I went out and bought a pack of both...


I believe you only need to format DVD RW disks. These are re-writeable and need to be pre-formatted before use. "R" disks can be extended with additional material before finalization, but existing material can't be written over. They are not formatted before use.

Hi,

Does this happen with all discs? What disc are you inserting that gives this error? DVD?

My sd3980 dvd player wont turn on


Some new dvd/vcr combo (or just dvd players) NEED to be plugged through either the HDMI or component cables (blue/green/red cables) in order to view the DVDs.

Try one of those to see if it fixes your problem.

P.S. don't forget to change the input of your TV to either the connection you are using for the DVD (HDMI or components)

I have a Toshiba DVD player SD K741. For the past few days, when I load the dvd, I receive a message on my TV screen "Incorrect Disc." What can I do to correct this?


incorrect disk error are common with the user putting in a disc that is not compatible with the player, in most cases it would have been a RW, that was written incorrectly. If this is not the case and it is a original disc you might want to purchase a cleaning dvd witch goes in and cleans the lens.

If that does not work then the unit's lens might be defective at this point.

1. Try other disc
2. try a cleaning disc

If those do not work then the issue is with the lens.

Thanks for your question please do not forget to leave a rating.

Toshiba DVR recorder incorrect disk message

When done the machine turns off automatically, and you turn it onagain. Every time mine has stopped working this has fixed it. This might work with yours as well.

Dvd player doesn't recognize dvd's of any kind


jusguessin should call Toshiba quickly. The units have a 1 year warranty. Do not open the unit or it will void your warranty (I know, I do Toshiba warranty repairs on their recorders. If anything will make be void a warranty, it's a consumer who opens the unit and pokes around inside).

mooch, clean the laser head. I wish I could refer you to a FAQ because this is about the 10th time today I have written this.

Open the unit. Remove the DVD drive. Take the top off of the DVD drive. Clean the lense with a q-tip with a little windex on it. Work the head up and down gently. Reassemble and test. If problem presists, go buy a new one.

I find when my unit gives that same message, if I unplug it for a few hours, the memory resets itself. You may have tried this already, but it does work with my machine. tcast at yahoo.com
