When I insert any dvd into the dvd player I get a 'Loading' message on the screen, but the dvds never load. While trying to load, the dvd player is making a noise. At first I thought that the dvd wasn't spinning and that that is where the noise was coming from, but it's spinning when I go to remove the dvd. It seems like the dvd player just insn't reading/loading anything.

Re: dvd not loading
The general amateur fix, and one with surprisingly high success rates is to brush dust accumulated on the laser lens.
This is assuming you get this with all disks, otherwise better not risk opening it.
Plug it out, open the screws, open it up, if necessary remove another board covering the lens, and gently brush the dust off. Assemble back and hopefully you're solved.
Anything else is for the lab(motor, lens assembly, focusing problems etc)

there is a ribbon cable in the DVD player that connect the moving laser head to the main circuit board. When this cable becomes damaged from moving over time, it will claim that your DVD is bad (even though it is not). Best to scrap the player and buy a new one.
Are you loading to play or to record? Commercial DVDs should play. DVDs for recording may not be recognized by your drive. First make sure that the disc is blank. You must insert a blank disc of the proper format: DVD-R or RW, DVD+R or RW. Even with the proper format, some brands may not behave the same way as other brands.
