The DVD reader/writer works only when playing a disk. When a new disk is inserted it normaly takes a minute or so to load (probably also formating) then the disk is ready to record.
Now when a new disk is inserted it says "load" for several minutes and then says the disk is bad.
I opened the unit, then the disk player and cleaned the lense although I could see nothing on it.
After re-assembly it worked the same, I beleive the disk unit needs to be replaced but cannot find a place to buy it.
The only label says "loader B1.8z".
I'd appreciate any help.
My Samsung DVD-VR330 is not that old (1 1/2 years). Recently it won't load disks reliably. Most of the time it will show "Load" for a long time and then open the tray along with the message "This disk cannot be played." The disks are clean. I have tried new disks, and pre-recorded disks with the same result. Is something wore out, already?
I've had the same problem of the unit ejecting my blank DVD. However it was pointed out that the DVD's I'd bought were DVD+RW - I didn't know there were different types so I'm going to buy some DVD-RW but I'm worried having read your comments that it still won't work!!
I have got exactly the same problem. Thought I had found some discs that worked as the first one formatted, since then all have come up with that crappy error protection message. Samsung really should sort this out.

The DVD-RW will work at random, some brands will wok better than others. Memprex, Sony, Maxell are 3 I can use sometimes. Once the disk is accepted it must be formatted. Click that and if accepted, first do a record for say 2 minutes to see if ti works.
If it works don't take it out until you're ready to finalize it. That's mostly so the disk will be readable in other players, should it not want to go back in, you probably lost the record. Don't write on the back, use a card and keep it in the cover.
Sometimes I can use those disk's in PC for data. regards
Any chance someone went near the DVD/VCR and dusted with some Pledge or any kind of dusting spray? It sounds like something has got the DVD driver chip acting crazy. May be a faulty disc tray switch telling the controller the door is opening and closing all the time. If its brand new, do you have an opportunity to take advantage of a warranty claim?
The DVD has burned incorrectly and the data has likely corrupted somewhat to the point where the DVD player/writer can't read it. You may be able to watch it on your computer with a DVD drive.
Try saving it to your computer, then erasing the disc and trying to record something short to it and play it back - if it plays back, it's likely to have been a recording problem, however, if you get the same problem, it may be a dodgy disc, a faulty DVD player/writer, or a format problem.
Try this, in order left to right.
Copy DVD to PC -> Erase DVD -> Record on DVD from TV -> Play back
If plays back
Erase DVD -> Continue as normal
Buy DVD-RW (emphasis on the minus) -> Try using that
If that works continue as normal, otherwise...
Return the DVD player/writer under warranty for repair/replacement.
#1 Insert your ( memory card , flash disk , cellphone , .... ) into your computer. #2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives. #3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive. #4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'. #5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place. #6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.
If this happens on more than one DVD, it might be necessary to clean the lens of the DVD player. Safe commercial products are available at local drug stores for around ten dollars.
The "wrong disk" message is usually associated with Data disks, i.e. those having computer files rather than DVD movie files.
If this is an older DVD player, the DVD may have been written on a high-speed DVD writer which creates smaller data spots which may not be read correctly on older DVD players.
Barring these problems, it is probably just broken. DVD players, although not having as many moving parts as VCRs, do not last indefinitely.

The machine is probably fussy about the type and brand of blank disk it will work with.
Check your manual and sample several brands
2. Playing the burned disk you wish play if from another device has to be finalized in the burner machine.
