Although you are not clear enough about "get a notice bad...", I have to suggest you these:
Try with another dvd disk. These kind of problems are due to disk errors or dvd rom mulfuctions. If it occurs on various disks try using a cd/dvd cleaner set, a wet one is better. Follow the instructions on the set. The main idea is to put one drip of the included liquid at the set (usually isopropyl alcohol) at a specific place (like small brush) on the disk surface and play this disk. This way the "brush" will clean up the laser lens and after that the cd/dvd player will be able to read the disks. BE CAREFULL not to put too much liquid on the "brush".
In case of receiving this error message at all disks and the cleaning set didn't help, you have to replace the dvd rom.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, accept my solution.

Thanks and regards

Open up the disc tray, blow inside real hard 3 times or use a can of air duster to blow of the laser lens eye. If cleaning doesn't help, reinstall the software and drivers. If that doesnt work, then replace the drive.

Cause you posted into the desktop section ...I will assume that you are talking about a dvd inserted into a dvd drive of the computer ..In this case you have to check the region code of the DVD disk ...cause if your drive is not on 0 code will not play all DVD'es ...and I suggest to install this player and see if they will playback ..
Also ..if the disk is a HD-dvd ..will not play in a DVD drive without the capability to run this kinda disks..
anyway ...try this player ..and load the disk and click right on the disk in My computer folder ..and choose to play with ....vlc

also install this codec

If you are talking about a DVD player ..than it is only a matter of region code..and this usually is not something that you can change without risking to damage the player ..and n this case I will advice to copy it into a computer with a code 0 drive ...and after that burn in again using Nero to play into any dvd player

Help, my Sony S360 BD play says "invalid" to two


The chances of getting 2 bad rentals in a row are very slim, but not impossible. If your player plays all other DVDs fine, then my money's on the Redbox DVDs being bad, or even fake (people have been known to keep the actual movies, and return fakes to the machine).

I am trying to record to a blank dvd-r. I load a blank dvd-r into samsung-vr357 and it ejects it saying "Cannot read disc". I never get a chance to Format it or anything.


I bought a lens cleaner and ran it and it still would not accept blank dvd-r. I loaded some old recordings I made to see if they would play and they did. I noticed these were recorded on "Staples" brand dvd-r bought at Staples office supply store. I went out and bought some more of these and they work!! For whatever reason, the unit accepts these and I have made 5 copies and they all copy and play fine. Now i need to go get some more! The Maxell just won't work in my player. Too bad I bought 100!

Loading but nothing happens


With the power turned off, open the DVD Player, and then open the top where you load the DVD into the player. Locate the laser lens and notice that the laser is attached to a transport assembly that moves the laser diagonally outward in a slot. 1. Slide this assembly outward to the end of its track. 2. Slide the assembly back inward to the closest inward position. 3. Repeat the process of sliding the assembly outward and then back inward.4. Put in a music CD and let it play all the way through. This helps to calibrate the laser head assembly movement. When the music CD is finished playing. 5. Put in a DVD, and you should have a working unit again This is a factory solution from Mintek that was given to a customer who ask for help with the forever loading disc problems. This solution may work on other models of portable DVD players. Most portable DVD players use this type of transport mechanism. Try this solution it might work for you.I hope this information helps your problem.

Dvd player refuses to read any disc I load into the machine


Hello I was looking to try and help you with your DVD player, we will start by loading a music cd store purchased, no burned cds please, if the cd loads and plays then your dvd player is either out of adjustment or going bad, most dvd players, i have worked on, will load and play a music cd, but will show loading errors when trying DVD's. If the music cd dosen't load then there could be an issue with the drive or tray. If the music cd plays just fine, then your laser is either out of adjustment or going bad. You can call the manufacuter to see if there is a process for resetting the DVD player, not all DVD players have this option, if resetting the DVD player dosen't work, but music cd's do then your laser lens is dirty or going bad. At this point you have three options 1) Take it to a repair shop, 2) Get an new one, 3) Get your hands dirty if your really handy and know what your doing to clean and replace the laser. I hope I can be of further assitance and I look forward to helping in the future, Thank You and have a nice day.
