Either a DVD with the wrong region code has been loaded, and your player doesn't recognise it, or you have inserted a disc which is either rewritable (or an incompatible format for your player), a blank DVD or CD, or the disc has not been finalised in a DVD recorder. It depends on the disc(s) you have, whether they are region coded or those using a compatible playback format (finalised DVD-Rs are the best as far as burned copies go).

Examples of incompatible formats for your player may include;
DVD-ROMs
DVD-RAMs (which are the wrong version/speed for your unit)
Mini-DVDs/CDs
CD-RWs
DVDs with a different region code to your player or rewritable discs

* When using shop-bought DVDs, including those purchased online, make sure their region code matches your player.

Portable dvd player when you put disc in machine it comes up with wrong disc display on screen is it the settings


It would more likely be the types of discs used. They are either of a region code not compatible with the player, contain foreign/unknown data, or they are unsupported formats. For example, if the player supports DVD-R playback, and you put a DVD-RW in, the player will generate 'wrong disc' message if the player cannot recognise the disc or the contents on it.

The disc formats/types that can be played should be outlined either on the unit itself or in the instruction manual (if you still have it). If the player shows that message even with genuine shop-bought DVDs then there is a defect within the unit, workshop attention may be required to fix it, but it could be costly.

'WRONG DISC' usually means the disc inserted is of a different region code to the player, or the wrong format (DVD-RW instead of DVD-R as exampled above). Try using different discs before going any further.

What ever DVD i put into the machines,even the disc cleaner, i just get a message : UNKNOWN DISC


think it is the laser reader. it is not the motor that spins the disc for sure as i have changed it over. this means that probably the unit is scrap unless you can source and install a new laser and that might cost more in time and money than just buying a new one. I will never buy apex again . tried to write to customer services but no reply.

After disc is loaded, it says "unknown disc."


Is it a pirated dvd? If it is, do you know some dvd players won't read pirated dvds? And if it isn't, then your dvd player may be dirty (the lens). For that you would have to buy a cleaning disk. You can get one at Radioshack. Or maybe what type of dvd type is it? Is it dvd-r, dvd-rw, or what? Some dvd players have trouble reading dvd-rw sometimes.

Hope this helps.

It keeps saying unknown disc,every time i put a disc in there every disc that i put in the player...it will not play it...it keeps saying Unknown-disc...including an audio-disc.


hi, try first to insert a clean up CD, and test your Cd or Dvd player with an original CD or Dvd, if the problem persist , your laser sense is defficient you have to go to fix it to a specialist.
hope this helps you

I have had the same problem a few times. All I do is eject and re-insert the disk until it recognises it, this seemed to work for me

Damaged DVD-R Disc


Try to play it by connecting camcorder through the ac adapter/charger which will further connect the battery, so this means you do not have to put the battery in the camcorder rather get it through the ac adapter/charger and format if it asks to. I recovered 1 disc by doing so!
