When I put a DVD it says it's loading but it never plays the DVD. It also keeps spinning and then slows down like it's going to stop spinning then it starts spinning again and it still says it's loading. Please help, got this at the place I used to work at for free. Not sure what else to do.

Re: Keeps saying loading but never shows picture
From your description it sounds like the computer optical drive is trying to “find” the index track on the disc but not succeeding -
Does the disc appear on the desktop or in explorer ( windows) or finder (Mac)? If not it is not loading completely
Do other discs load correctly ?
it could be the individual disc has problems, and if it was created on a computer optical drive , it may be readible on some drives and not others
There may be an issue with the drive itself such as the optical read head being misaligned or losing calibration over time
If this on an older computer, and the drive has failed, there are many inexpensive choices to replace it with a USB external optical drive, which run from about $20 and up

Try a DVD cleaning kit, this will sometimes put more life in the player, if it fails the laser pickup assembly will need to be replaced in order to fix this problem, I would suggest a estimate before you consider.
Hi, Does it do with original DVD or copied DVD ?. if the original one works fine but the others not, your DVD may not capable of playing copy -R/RW discs..even though your DVD specs says: Plays DVD-Video, video-mode DVD-R/RW and DVD+R/RW, CD-R/CD-RW, MP3 CD, Kodak Picture CD, and JPEG image CDs, sometimes this happens due to bad recording of DVD .Try to use better recorded DVD or if possible use the original ones.. Thanks in advance for rating me..Regards
Your toshiba is not spinning that's why it keeps on saying loading. Unplug the dvd Open the device,once open plugin the dvd and put the dvd cleaner in the player. take your finger on the top where the dvd disk is and spin the disk. What happening is that you are cleaning the len. keep spinning until it spin on its own.Put the toshiba top back on and clean again. It should clean on it's on. Now you can play your dvd. Clean your dvd on a regular basic.
It clicks and keeps loading after a while it says"wrong disc," I just have it for a few months and it acted like this. I checked inside, it seems like everything is correct but it just clicks and never spins. or it says error disc... i just bought this GRRRRRR!!!!!!!
