For the first 6 months it worked great. The past 6 months it has been nothing but a headache. It constantly skips or cuts itself off. It will play OK for about 3 minutes then it starts skipping and will not stop. Even pressing stop and restarting does not help. The green side will not even play OK for 1 minute. Please help, I am beginning to think that I bought a piece of $300 crap! I only use it in the car but I am sure that should not be the problem.

its about time you get a new DVD Player...What type is it??? if it is a expensive one it is probably worth getting repaired but if it is a cheapy..then throw it away coz its not even worth looking at...there are the biggest pain to fix!! Best solution is to buy a new one!
We have had out Toshiba P25-S509 for a very long time. It's a great laptop and watching DVDs with a wide screen was great; That is, until the CD/DVD player was no longer recognized by the computer. We took it in (still under warranty) to have it fixed, only to not work again after a couple of months.
Now YEARS have gone by and I have bought another Toshiba (M305D-S4831) which is great unless you try to reboot and it doesn't fully start up. That's for another review, not this one... So, back to the P25-S509 and YEARS later. We just received two 1GB memory cards, which are being used to replace the "stock" two 256 MB memory cards. Well, the computer is MUCH FASTER and THE DVD PLAYER FINALLY WORKS!!! Woo-Hoo! $98.00 investment in memory cards saved up from ditching the older Toshiba.
Hope this review helps someone out there that might have had the same problem.
If it's only a week old, I would take it back to the point of purchase. Most stores will do 30 days on electronics.
System error is a report from within the recorder. Most likely with its flashed software (internal programming)
I went and checked the reviews on this unit, and what you are reporting is very consistant with what other people have said. It runs about 50% works great, the other half had nothing but problems. I've made it a point on any electronics purchase, do as much research on it as needed before buying it. And I usually look for the negative reports first, and what they report was bad about it. It has saved me from a number of headaches.
no solution...the unit is junk!
I've had one for about 6 months, played about 6 DVD's, and now it won't do anything at all! neither the button son the unit nor the remote will power it up. it won't do anything except open the lid.
