The last problem is probably because you have not ?finalized? the DVD yet. Basically what that does is modify how the data is stored on the DVD so that a normal DVD player can read it. It also prevents you from modifying or recording to the disk any more so make sure you?re done before performing this. The part about the freezing is more complex, are these commercially recorded DVDs or something someone else recorded?

It is most likely that the laser is not a problem because it can read the first part of the disk. If the laser is defective, it willn ot recognize the disk. The problem is probably the seek mechanism. It can only access the inner tracks but cannot read the tracks further from the center.

first thing i would do i clean the lens with 90% isoprople alcohol and a q-tip, if that doesn't work watch the laser eye again and the movement is the laser look like it tries to catch up???
i would put a dc volt meter on the motor and the motor should stay at lower voltage if it climbs then there is something with the rails or worm gear. let me know what you find out.

This is a common problem on CD and DVD players.
Altini is correct to a point. You can try taking the top case off, removing the DVD drive and taking the top off of the drive. Then use a q-tip on the laser lense. I use a little squirt of windex on the q-tip. Gently clean the lense even if it doesn't look dirty. Make sure you very gently work the lense up and down through it's travel. This will make sure no dust or dirt is interfering with the lense focusing.
Reassemble and try your movies again. This is a 50 50 proposition. If you still have the same problem, the mechanism has likely gone bad. Time for a new DVD player.
