DVD Player and DVD Problems

My dvd player is set to region 1 dvd's and i purchased some dvd's from the states. All of them work fine except for two... The disks are a gold colour and do not work on this computer. What could be the problem?

2. One dvd (a golden colour disk)has 5 episodes of something on it. It plays through the first 3 fine. Then it reaches the 4th... it starts to get into the episode and after 20-30 seconds of the episode the dvd played gets "errors" and closes... if i try and skip a chapter it skips to every chapter untill the dvd is ended.
What could be the problem?

Thanks alot

I had some black cd-r's and of course one could not read any writing on the cd. so i scratched the name of the disc on the back so as to identify each one!

Great idea....Until i came to play them, none would work!

I assume the laser could see through the disc so could no longer read the data.

Perhaps this could be your problem?

Try holding it up to the light. Does the light look uniform coming through the disc?

Can you copy the disc to your hard drive and see if it will play correctly?
