I put in a blank or recorded disk ,and the screen message is " unknown disk", and ejects the disk. I have used different blank disks,with the same result. Seems it is not " reading" the disk. Probable...


are you sure the drive is a read-writer? some optical drives are read only. If its not a writer and you put a blank in, that is what it would do.

If you put a real and recorded disk in(not a copy) and it says unknown disk, the eye is dirty. Cleaning the drive will be the next step.

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.

I have an older DVD player. COBY DVD-404. I downloaded pictures from my camera to my computer onto a DVD-R disc and then again onto a DVD+RW disc. Neither disc would play on my player. It comes up on...


Your 'old' DVD player is the problem. It is unable to 'read' picture files. Time to put the COBY away and upgrade to a DVD player that can read .jpg, .jpeg images. Most new players do and they are not that expensive.

Unknown disk error when putting disk in player.


hello,

when the disc player shows unknown disc error, it simply implies that the lens of the player is weak and cannot read the disc.

the solution is for you to try to clean the lens with a lens cleaner or better still replace the lens.

take care

(not including the models with an 'R' after the model #.

these models need the following to play DVDs:

you copied the DVD disc to the memory card. you used the memory card to play DVDs.

Dvd "unknown disc" message coming up


Have you tryed to use a lens cleaning disc yet. The laser lens on these players and recorders alike, must have the lens cleaned every oince in awhile. If that does not help, most likly you have a bad laser pickup assembly and you will need to replace the plaer as to have that repaiered, you could buy a new unit. Good Luck
