Clean the lens with a lens cleaner. See if this works. If not, then it is a more drastic issue (optical pickup assembly).

Cannot play this disc


As long as you are sure about using DVD-R which is the most common then i can only assume it did not finalize the disc.

DR-MV100B will not read disc


It could be a dirty laser. Try running one of those laser cleaning disks through it. That might help

LG DVD recorder not playing DVD


When a unit does that it can be a fingerprints on a disc not letting it read the disc and or also that it is not finalized. Can also be a disc format that does not work on unit. Some units only work with either -R or +R and not both. Hope this helps

Disk error message


In the manual there is a list of discs the unit wil play. On the last pages there is a quick reference. There are also region codes that need to be set. Maybe a power outage reset your settings. Also it would be good to know if this unit played disc previously, plays other disks? Or the discs play on other players. It could just be a dirt problem as well.

Manual is available here;

Wont play dvds, only cds, music and photos when dvd placed in tray, goes through reading process, then ejects tray with an on screen message, unknown disc! With all discs not a certain few. when a blank...


DVD & CD use different wavelengths for the read head. I suspect that the blue laser is out of alignment or otherwise in need of repair.

PhotoCD is a format.

MODEL LG RC299 NOT READING DVD VIDEO'S. ERROR COMES UP "UNKNOWN DISC.PLEASE CHECK DISC". PLAY'S OK PREVIOUSLY RECORDERED DISC'S,RECORDERED ON THIS UNIT.


I also have this annoying problem - but I bought mine new on ebay and have zero after-sales support. I have tried all the hacks I cna find over the last 12 months and when I am finished, the messages all say 'congratulations, you're now region free'. But even the local DVDs don't work. Disc ejects itself with irritating message 'unknown disc'. Does anyone have this problem who has a SALES RECEIPT from an authorised LG dealer? If so, can you jump up and down with LG until they offer a solution? Thanks!
