I spun the disc in my pdv-0701a with a dremel tool after cleaning the lens did not help. I held the door button down with a pencil eraser. The CD with mp3 file read and played just fine. Now I have to figure out if it is the motor or the drive electronics. It's not always the laser pick or the lens guys... - Terry
Dear dmiller,this is a common problem with dvd players.Most probably the optical assembly of your player has gone bad.Please get it checked by some good technician.Replacing this unit should solve your problem.Thanks.

Best bet/least effort is to get a newer, slightly more robust DVD player. This unit sells for less than $30. It costs more to ship it over from China than it does to manufacture the player. No kidding! For an ultra-cheap DVD player I'd go with a ~$35 player from wally world. Best of luck.
You should absolutely be able to play the recorded DVDs from your camcorder in your DVD player, as long as you remember to finalize the disc and the disc is compatible with the player. If your DVD player is less than five years old or so, you should be fine, provided you're not using dual-layer discs.
