Unknown disc error

Hi, can you tell me why my hard drive recorder is coming up with the "unknown disc error" everytime i load a dvd movie into it to watch. I have tried numerous movies and none of them work at all. I have checked the region code but still no help. My HD recorder is an LG model RH2T80. This would be greatly appreciated if you can help me with this. thanks.

    I have the same model and the same problem. It won't play any bought or hired disc (although it used to), it will only play discs/dvds I've recorded myself (from the HDD).
    This shows that it's not the lens!

Either the lens of the DVD drive has got dirty, or the drive itself is faulty. Try cleaning the lens with a lens cleaning disk, if this does not work, return it for replacement (If it is still under warranty), or take it to a repair shop to have the DVD drive replaced.

Solution: DVB-T RH2T80 will not read dvd because of a errant signal from a handheld video camera (HHVC) that was incorrectly disconnected from the dvd unit. Do the following methodically: reconnect HHVC to AC power then connect the video transfer cable...then power up the HHVC and play a disc . Now , at any point, methodically stop the disc,powerdown the HHVC and remove the video cable. This is how I regained control of the dvd player after a week of no access. In addition I immediately managed to recreate the conditions that produced the message "unrecognized disc". I then repeated the above process to regain control once again of the dvd player function. There is no reason to bin the recorder or replace the dvd unit. So invest a few minutes and save yourselves the dollars.

Unknown disc on philips ht9150/98


Did you try another disc?
Try other discs - preferably store bought. If it will not recognize store bought discs then you have a defective unit.

Is the "unknown" disc home made? could be that the homemade disc has not been created properly or is a type of disc that the unit cannot read.

I need help fixing my DVD-PLAYER. The model number is- PANASONIC SC-DT100. The problem with my DVD-PLAYER is that it won't play original DVDs, it used to before but not anymore. I some how did something...


Hi Zainab

The issue usually related to more than one possibilities. First possibility; the obstacle in front of laser beam lens. Sometime by natural causes the DVD lens collect tiny amount of dust which makes the laser reflection on CD weaker. since copied DVDs has different track structure it might be better reflected.

Second possibility is your region code has been changed. Copied DVDs usualy come with region "0". You might try to set your region again.

You may perform lens cleaning by obtaining an easy to find DVD cleaner set.

Please post if you have further questions

Good Luck

Select subtitle and audio track when ripping Blu-ray?


Among the Blu-ray ripping tools, Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper is favored by most movie lovers for its high success rate of ripping and free switchover of languages and subtitles. It removes BD+ and AACS protections, and handles Blu-ray discs up to MKB version 10 and above so that the Blu-ray movies are attainable freely. Recently Dolby TrueHD codec had been added to the app, which enables users to access any of the audio tracks in Blu-ray discs. It is “able to open, copy, and watch every Blu-ray, irrespectively whether the Blu-Ray was bought in Europe, Japan or USA (i.e. all the three zones)”. (commented by Markus Nolff, a user of Blu-ray Ripper). This guide shows you how to select subtitles and tracks of different languages when ripping Blu-ray discs. A step-by-step guide is displayed below:

Step 1. Load Blu-ray disc.
Make sure you have had an external Blu-ray drive connected with your PC. Insert the desired Blu-ray disc and run Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper. (A free trail version of Blu-ray Ripper can be downloaded from here.) Now when you see the interface, click on “DVD ROM” and the app will import Blu-ray movie from the BD-ROM. Check the directory and click “OK”. Do not expand the folders and try to look for certain M2TS files, since the ripper will detect and put all the M2TS files in file list. You can load DVD in the same way, the ripper is able to cope with any DVD, either protected or not. If your source movie is in folders, click “DVD folder” to import the folders.

Step 2. Set subtitles and audio tracks.
One Blu-ray disc usually comes with multiple audio tracks and subtitles of different languages. Right under the file list you could find Subtitle and Audio option from where the subtitle and dubbings are set. The dropdown list shows you the detailed information, such as the subtitle language, audio language, codec, channels etc. Here you check the main movie (with longest duration), set the subtitle and audio track, and double-click the file to preview your settings.

How to hook up a dvd recorder with HTS6500/37?


Suddenly had this problem. My Phillips is hooked up to TV and to Cable Box. When I inserted a DVD it would return a "no disc" but it would read and play CDs. After a call to Phillips...who said that they had no idea what was going on and I should take it in for service...it was 4 months out of warranty. Repair company said it was not worth the repair costs ($200) so I should try cleaning the lens with a lens cleaning disc. I bought a Maxell. It has a set of little brushes on the bottom of the disc. I inserted it and played track 2 for 20 seconds as instructed and voila! It began reading the DVDs again. I was only out the $10 for the disc cleaner. If you have this problem, try the disc cleaner first as it might be the fix.

DVD Player Problems


Me three, same thing, reads 'no disc' or just won't play it. I have found that it happens more frequently on rental DVD's and that running a cleaner cd through several times helps but eventually that will even stop working. No idea what the problem is
