Hi,
This is because the laser wears out over time. DVD requires it to be much more precise then a cd, it gets very technical. Depending on the age of the unit your options are limited. If it's under warranty then contact the manufacturer and have it repaired/replaced. If not I would just buy a new one as there are a lot of sales at this time and you can get them fairly cheap.
Thank you,
lee

CD disk is plays, but DVD disk in no playing,,sometimes dvd plays,mostly no disk


try cleaning the laser lense
If you have a dirty lense it can still read cd because data is not as compressed on dvd, each byte of data takes up far less space on a dvd so the dirty lense might not pick it up whereas it might pick it up on a dvd

Says no disc when i put in a dvd. dvd is new and clean, still won't work.


Hello
Put a video CD and see whether it reads and plays. If it also does not plays, or if video CD only plays and not DVD; in both cases; the Laser Pickup Unit is faulty and should be replaced with same type and number. OK.

Will Not Play CD-Rs Part Deux


Checked specs- YES -supposed to play MP3's. Did you try other MP3 Audio disks in the DVD? You can try the MP3 disk in your computer to make sure it is OK. If it plays in the computer, have to suspect a problem with the DVD unit - probably the converter IC.
