Unhappy Solved: DVD Player help
Hi. I have a Samsung DVD VR335 DVD Player/Recorder and VCR combo. For quite some time now the DVD player has caused problems. Constantly says "Cannot read disk" even on brand new movies. After trying several times it will usually play. But it refuses to read blank DVD-Rs at all anymore. I have did the channel button reset... called Samsung... there are no software updates... I've tried different types of disks. I've tried manually cleaning it... nothing seems to work. And it absolutly Refuses to read my disk cleaner disk anymore and it used to read it just fine. Can anyone help please? I would really love to have my DVD Recorder/Player back. Tapes drive me nuts lol. Thanks in advance for any help at all

Another reason not to buy "combo" electronics, if one breaks, you have to replace both.

Sounds like the drive has died, sorry.
