My HT-DS610 has become selective in the movies that it will load and playback. At first I could watch all my movies and then over the corse of a couple of weeks, it started to not load them. I know it's not the DVDs because I can still watch them through my PS2. I've searched Samsungs website, but they don't have a thing about this model other than the user manual. Is anyone else having or had this problem and is there a way to correct it other than using a sledge hammer to vent my frustration and purchasing a different brand of home theater??

Re: Unable to read/play DVDs
You may have a dirty laser lens on the slider assembly. If you clean this little lens, and the problem still happens, it is an indication that the laser is getting weak and it may be time to start looking around for a new player/recorder. Good Luck

1. DVD has lots of scratches 2. Regional Settings 3. Incorrect DVD settings for PS2 4. No/Incorrect Disc
1. Clean your discs well and avoid incurring scratches. Place it in its box after use. 2. DVDs have encoding. They are encoded by regions. Thus, you cannot play region 2 DVDs on a US Playstation mainly because the US Playstation 2 can only read DVD that are encoded in Region 1 or those DVDs that are encoded for all regions. Again, US PS2 are region 1 capable. Japanese PS2s are Region 2 Capable. 3. There are a number of settings for the DVD playback of your PS2. First is the rating of the DVD. If you want to watch a rated R movie, make sure your PS2 allows viewing of R movies. You'll be setting this during the first time that you'll be watching a DVD. It's just the same as real theaters. It is also protected with password so you need the person who set it up the first time in order to bypass the rating settings.
4. Put in a DVD first and make sure that it is a Movie. And, check #2.
The Rating menu allows you to block playback of DVDs based on their ratings. Setting the Password & Rating Level The DVD player allows you to block playback of inappropriate content with a passwordprotected Rating system (not all discs are rated). A. From Stop mode, press SETUP. B. Select Rating and press ENTER. C. Select Rating and press ENTER repeatedly to set the rating from 1 (most restrictive) to 8( least restrictive ). If a password has already been set, the lock icon will be closed. You will not be able to select Rating until you SELECT the correct password using the 0-9 keys. D. Select Password. E. Use the 0-9 keys to SELECT a 4-digit password and press ENTER. The lock icon will close to indicate that the rating and password are set. F. Press SETUP to save and exit. Not all DVDs are rated. DVDs that are rated higher than the level you select will not play without SELECTING the correct password. If you forget your Rating password, select 8888 to clear the memory. Keep this password out of reach of children as if will always unlock the Parental Control setting.

I had this same problem and checked all of my cables and wires. Come to find out one of the wires that connected to the central audio speaker (the one that the audio track comes from) was unplugged. I plugged it in and that fixed it! My audio track is back! So make sure that all of the speaker cables are properly connected! That might be the source of your troubles!

What program are you trying to use to play these movies? Windows Media Player will play some, but not others - I highly recommend Nero, WinDVD, PowerDVD or similar programs.
Question - are you able to browse the contents of the DVD drive in My Computer? Even if the movie doesn't play, you can still see the files (there will be an AUDIO_TS and a VIDEO_TS folder, which a bunch of VOB files under the latter).
If you can see the files, but movies won't play, you just need the appropriate DVD playback software.
I found this online. Don't know if it helps you guys or not?
