I too have a similar issue, after taking unit apart and watching, the spindel motor sticking. So, replacement of that module might be needed. I have yet to pull the module and see if it's a belt or dirt. Will post more if proves so or if I can get a replacement module for reasonable cost.

Either a disk problem, or a player problem. If you get the "no disk" message when using other disks(try originals if you were trying burnt), that aren't scratched, then it's possible that the lens needs cleaning. open the player, locate the lens, and gently brush off any accumulated dust. If you see none, then it will take a more serious repair, possibly to the motor assembly, or the lens mechanism. Good luck

Recorded dvd's won't play on other dvd players Toshiba d-r410

You can play these recordings without finalizing them in the D-R410, but if you want them to play
in other DVD players, they need to be finalized. See pages 28 to 32 in manual. If you want to
finalize the disks you've already made, follow the directions on page 32.
