Re: DVD stops playing in middle
What might be happening is a misread of the disk or a buffer error, these happen often, and can be fixed sometimes by cleaning the lens, cleaning and relubricating the guide rails and making sure the rubber bumper gromets are not worn down. Now these are all of the mechanical things you can do. The problem could also be a bad memory sector in the play back buffer, or a store and hold voltage could be off a bit (indication of a bad capacitor).
I hope this helps.

it could be the disc itself dvds really don't age that well a common problem is that one day they just decide to freeze and stop working even though they had only been played a few times the most extreme would be your situation. I would suggest trying newer dvds out if same problem occurs then it is a problem with the dvd player.
Check out this website for troubleshooting and repair tips on your dvd player. Just paste the web address into your address bar. http://www.drx9000repair.netfirms.com/ They have lots information on these dvd players and also do repairs.
My friend suggested I clean the dvd optical reader lens inside the player with a fine brush (like a camera brush with a blower bulb). This seemed to help immensely. I'm not certain if this is just a temporary fix, but it seems to be ok so far.
it might be that you are playing a dual layer dvd in the player. The player needs to focus on the second layer of the movie, and that might be why the dvd freezes. Leave it there for a while and the dvd should continue if it is this situation.
i have the same problem, i put any dvd and it freezews during the play. there is nothing to do, must restart and sometime have to wait one day before i can restart. i have tried at leat 12 different dvd and it freezes everytime on every single one of them. I have tried clening... no success. Now Sony replacement plan cost 150.00!!!! I have paid 200.00 for the player. At this point i hsould buy a new one or get a replacement? Probably replacement but at that price I feel i am buying a new one.... I am disapointed with Sony. Don't buy DVP-FX810 seems i am not the only one with the problem.
When you say it won?t read are you trying to play commercial DVD movies or read DVD data disks?
If you're trying to play movies then you need a couple of things the first being some type of player program. Real player works as does Windows media player but usually DVD drives come with a striped down version of PowerDVD or WinDVD.
If you in fact have a player installed and when a DVD is inserted in your drive it doesn't play it may not be configured to automatically play DVDs. Try opening your player program and trying to manually play your DVD.
Let us know if you have any success or if you need more assisted. If you do let us know what player program and operating system you have and any error messages that may appear.
