Trying to play a DVD movie in a Sony DVD player and the screen says "cannot play this disc." it's loaned to me from a friend w

A friend loaned the Downton Abbey series and I couldn't wait to watch it. Have a Sony DVD player. Popped the disc in and the screen says "Cannot play this disc." it was just viewed recently so the disc shouldn't be the issue. I checked and all wires are correctly plugged in. What else should I try?

    If this is a Retail version of the disc, try checking to see if there is a firmware update for your Sony DVD Player. If this is a copy that someone burned, that is likely the issue.

  3. I am really embarrassed to admit that she loaned me a BluRay DVD and our player doesn't show BluRay discs. Thanks so much for taking time to answer though! Guess we should update our technology!
  4. Heh. It happens. Glad you figured it out.
