This is my first DVD player and I didn't know you're supposed to run cleaning disks now and then. After the warranty expired, it stopped recognizing all disks, so it won't even play a cleaning disk. Gives an edit about the disk being the wrong kind, even though it used to play all of them before.
I updated my firmware from 1413 to 1416 found on avforums. This is for european units. I suggest you also complain to Toshiba Japan as there are known issues with the xs32. We all need a firmware update. See AVforums.
My unit will not recognise RAM discs anymore - even those that I had previously used.
Have you thought of replacing the DVD drive. See AVforums.

Make sure you have a non home made DVD. Some DVD players will not play DVD'S in certain formats.
If you have a normal DVD in the DVD player and are getting "NO Disk" then there is a real good possibility the lens is just so dirty that it is not recognizing your DVD at all. This happens a lot to all disk players that are neglected from the cleaning process. Get a disk player cleaner and run it through a few times until the disk is read again. Sometimes the lens is so dirty you have to try a few times just to get the cleaner disk itself to play just to do the actual cleaning. Make sure to run that cleaner disk through once a week. These disk cleaners "sweep" the lens and work well. You can get one at your local Best Buy for $8usd.
The last thing it could be is that somehow the lens has come out of alignment. Just a millimeter out of alignment is all it takes to not be able to read a disk and DVD players get bumped and knocked off the shelf easy. So this can happen often especially with the more smaller travel DVD player.
try to insert other disk, make sure the file format with in the dvd that you use is applicable to the dvd player if not it will not recognized.now if still other dvd's doesn't read try to clean the optic sensor with cd lens cleaner might be dusty.another way is manual cleaning with the use of smooth cotton buds with isoprophyl alcohol wipe the optic sensor do this gently not to damaged the optic sensor. good luck hope this will help you.
1.) How old is the DVD Player?
2.) What is the brand of DVD Player?
3.) Does it do this for all DVD's or a specific DVD?
4.) Has anything changed in the last week or so?
If the DVD player is less than a year old it most likely has a Manufacturer warranty. Also if you haven't tried already try putting another disk in the dvd player and see if it will read it. If it won't read another DVD try a CD.
Please clarify the above so that I may help you further.

I have had this on a number of other players. First try the disks in question on another DVD player after giving them a thorough clean. If they work there then you know the problem is not with the disks.
After that (assuming the RH299 is actually working in every other respect e.g. on HDD), run a laser cleaning DVD/CD in the machine to clean the laser lens. If your machine is out of warranty then you can try opening it and cleaning the laser lens with rectified spirits/pure alcohol. Then try the disks again. If they still don't play, then it's off to a local electronics expert to see if realigning or replacing the laser and transport mechanism is economically viable, or buy a new machine.
jusguessin should call Toshiba quickly. The units have a 1 year
warranty. Do not open the unit or it will void your warranty (I know, I

Open the unit. Remove the DVD drive. Take the top off of the DVD drive.
Clean the lense with a q-tip with a little windex on it. Work the head
up and down gently. Reassemble and test. If problem presists, go buy a
