"Bad Disk" message

Hi,

As of last night, whatever disk I attempt to load & play comes back with a "BAD DISK" message, not allowing me to play.
Is this thing shot?

Thanks

    I get the "bad disc" message when ever I try to load one. The machine is several years old. Can it be fixed or is it time for a new one?

I determined the equipment was shot and bought a new one. Much less stressful and rather pleasant!

"wrong disk" message appears after load time


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.

Won't play any disk, says "bad disk" after being stuck on "loading"


You have a dirty / defective laser , motor or cable. Only when opened can the problem really be diagnosed.

Sony DVD RECORDER/PLAY WON'T PLAY


Dvd players are only made to last a couple of years(the laser goes bad).If you play scratched disc's it won't last that long.Hopefully you didn't pay alot for the player,and if you did then you can get the laser repaired but its expensive.I usually wait until the things go on sale and pick one up for 20 or 30 dollars.When the laser burns out after repeated use I just buy a new one because fixing them is more expensive and unless you want to continue having problems its easier to buy new.These guys that put alot of money in these units are just wasting their money.

DVD will not load/format new disk


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.

Wrong disk


There are many chip sets for DVD machines and each has preferences for a range of disk types- most will play straight commercial discs- but things get a bit tricky with the many and various types of 'burned' disks from computers. The strange thing is - it seems the cheaper the player the more versatile they be whilst a Hi grade one can be a tad fussy about what it will and will not do. So what does this mean to you? Check the types of disk you have been playing on it and stick to it- come back with exactly what disks it don't like
