My Pioneer, DV 400 V, is not able to play Pen drives which are 16 gb...its shows its loading....but never loads the pictures... please help..

I'm going to look into that, but it may have an 8GB limit, or you may simply have too many entries...

Ok, here's a limitation, the device has to be FAT16 or FAT32 formatted, if it's NTFS format, it won't be able to read it.

You may have a corrupt JPEG or a JPEG that has something in the encoding it doesn't undrestand
You may have a corrupt MP3 file.

Step 1 - put the drive in your computer, open up my computer, and right click the drive and click properties. Check to see if it's anything other than fat32 format.

Dump the jpegs off the drive (make sure you have copies). This is easier if you right click the folder, and choose sort by type.

if it still is doing the same thing, start eliminating the MP3s themselves by dumping half of what's left on the drive at a time.

Eventually you will track the issue down!

My player will no load. It just started "loading"

Make sure you are using a good DVD. Do not used burned DVDs. Make sure that the DVD you are using works in another player. If this is all being done and still no dice then there are a few other options:
-Has the DVD player been dropped, stored on its side, knocked around?
-Has there been a disc put into the player that had a label or something that would off center it, so once it started spinning with would wobble around?

Anything like this could have knocked the inside laser out of alignment, this would be a mechanical problem that could only be corrected by Pioneer or a technician.

Or, you can eBay is as used, purchase as-is.

My dvd player keep on loading but it end up no

from direct experience, the problem is that the disk does not start spinning by itself - it will if you have the top off and give it a spin to start it ... I don't know what the ultimate solution is though.

Not recognizing DVD player

i would say for some reason your dvd player is not compatible from now on with that brand of blank dvd!

get the firmware update from the brand website all you do is download the file burnit on a cd and put it in the dvd player should fix most and eventual problems

Screen reads "No Disc"

The laser distance servo may be faulty and the laser assembly catching on the disc.
