    My Star Trek Voyager DVD's will play awhile then stop like it is on pause then start up, and then do it all over again. Pause and start. Pause and start. This happens on both DVD players I own. Any suggestions why this is happening?

It sounds like the problem is with the DVD's you've been playing. I've gotten those problems before, but not on every DVD. How many different ones did you try playing?

    So, I recommend getting a CD or DVD doctor that will get rid of the scratches. You'll need it one day, regardless.

My DVD player in dell 1501 just keeps starting and stopping

Your DVD drive is overheating and untill you replace it your likely to keep getting the same problem. However there are a few methods of fixing it on your own.
  1. First look for better drivers online - this shoud increase the preformance dramatically.
  2. Second there is a chance that your lense is dusty or scrached - go to your nearest supermarket and look for a dvd that cleans dvd players. (these disks have tiny fine brushes that clean dvd player lenses. this may fix your problem all together.
  3. If you cannot do ether of these try to blow the dust out of the lense.

My dv s5770 (yamaha)takes a long time to read the disc, if it does at all. sometimes it plays, other times it stops and skips to the next track/chapter. It goes from reading to dvd to info on the display...

The lenses of your dvd has a dust on it. You need to buy a cd cleaner , or you have to open the dvd and locate the lenses. Clean the lenses using cotton buds with alcohol.

i would try and take off top cover then using q tips to manually clean the lenses dont worry about the laser it is made to move in all directions so go ahead and apply slight pressure when cleaning i usually use a wet one then a dry one to asorb excess moisture.
