Coming up bad Disc means your DVD player is not able to read the discs. There may be some dust on the lense ( optical unit ). If you can clean it please do it. If it does not work even after cleaning, the lense is bad and needs replacement.
Some machines work with -R some with +R. My suggestion is to try a + or - R RW which is rewritable. If you screw it up, no harm done because you can always reformat it and start over again. Don't forget to format the rewritable at the start.
if you can, open the loading drawer and blow real hard inside, sometimes this works, mine does it every once in a while and blowing does the trick. it's dust on the laser eye. you could always take the cover off and clean it with a Q-Tip.
BD-P1000 Update Solution
The solution that worked for me: I went to www.samsung.com/ca and downloaded the Samsung BD-P1000 player's firmware update to my desktop. When opened, I was directed to"burn" a DVD on my computer. I then inserted the new DVD in my Blu-Ray player. The player automatically checked and confirmed player model number and registration and uploaded information from the DVD and the update was complete. The BD-P1000 then flawlessly played the rented Blu-Ray disc of "The Scorpion King".
Thank You Samsung!
The problem with using rental discs is that they are dirty. Buy a dvd player cleaning disc and follow the instructions. These discs help to realign the laser. If this does not help try cleaning the disc with a disc cleaner. Also depending on how new the dvd is there have been a lot of discs manufactured outside of the US that have been bad. It may not be your machine but the discs. I personally went through 6 of the same movie before i gave up and rented something else that worked perfectly fine. Hope this helps you watch.
