My player is giving me a messege on the screen saying that the dvd is not compatible with this player. The only problem is that its a legitemate dvd ( not bootleg) and I was just playing this same movie two days ago. I received this messege after I unplugged it and connected it to a different T.V.

Re: NOT PLAYING DVD'S
Have you tried that dvd in another player? Have you tried another dvd in your player? Since this began after you moved it, do some backtracking. If someone says...it quit AFTER I did...such and such, then THAT is most likely the cause. I have solved many problems by backtracking.

Make sure the disk you put in the player is compatible with what is in the manual. Don't try to use disks you burned yourself when the manual does not say it is compatible with CD R or DVD R + or -
And when it is compatible with CD / DVD R, put the files on the disk in a format the player can read. Don't try to play MP4 disks, because almost no MP4 format is compatible with w DVD player.
Either your DVD players Laser Pickup Unit is dirty or defective or its 'sled' motor has damaged. Sled motor is one, which spins the disc inside. if it does not spins, the main system IC won't get any signal that the disc is "IN", and will show the messege "No Disc". The same will happen if the laser pickup unit is defective or dirty. Insert a Head Cleaning Disc into the system, and play it for atleast 3 times. If there is any dirt or dust, this will solve your DVD's problem. If not, it should be serviced by any skilled technician. It is not a user reparable item, as you have to take out its loading mechanism completly out of it for repair. OK.
Check the regional code of the DVD you want to play. It is at the back of the DVD cover. It should be compatible with the regional code which your DVD player can play. If they are not tallying the disc will not be read
You probably have burnt the dvd disc using a video format that is not compatible with your player.
A lot of DVD players will not play .AVI or DIVx files that are commonly downloaded.
Your DVD player manual should list the formats it will play.
Convert downloaded movies to a compatible format before burning to disc.
There are several conversion programmes available via the web - at a cost of approx $50.00.
AVS4U works ok.
So for example if you have an R2 player, press REPEAT-3-8-7-6-7.
If you've done this correctly (and your player is compatible with the hack), you should see a number at the top left corner of the screen corresponding to the current region.
Now, pressing any number from 1 to 6 will change to the corresponding region. Or, press 9 for auto-region mode.
Next, press OPEN/CLOSE to open the tray, followed by Standby (or DVD POWER) on the remote to close it and put the player into Standby mode. The next time you turn your player on, the new region will be set.
If the above codes don't work try 57538.

Its probably compabitilities issues. Try -rs. There a lot better since they are more known type and technology. the difference is +r have more editing features but in your case it doesn't matter because your just copying.
hey smartman, first of all, look at the type of disc you are burning to.. DVD-R or DVD+R and make sure your DVD is compatible for that type.. another thing to look at is some DVD's don't play burned movies, I have run into that before.
