The laser is probably getting old. Disk have different "grades" and as the unit gets older it cant read the higher ones.
For instance you will probably see that your unit will 100% read CD's official or not.
Hard to say because this could be caused by any number of things. You could try cleaning the optical read head but this could get very involved unless you use a cleaning disc which may not work. You could try different discs such as a CD to see if that still fails. It could be the disc format. If everything fails then most likely a repair is required.

What you can do is open the Player. You will see a DVD drive in there (same type used in Computers) You can replace it with another IDE DVD writer. This solved many of my client's problems.
I always keep a few IDE DVD roms, and writers handy in my shop. It is the simplest, and cheapest fix.
Hope it helps.
it could be a region problem. most dvd players are locked on certain region areas..like America being Zone 1 and S.A being Zone 2. imported or diffirent format of dvd's usualy gives a disk error message. if you think it might be region try www.videohelp.com. they give hacks for region problems^^
