What would you like to do?
You could just throw it in your garbage and think nothing else of it. Better and more ecofriendly alternatives are donating it or selling it if it still works. If it no longer works, you can look up places in your area that will recycle electronics. To my knowledge, all Best Buys will take old electronics off your hands and handle them in a responsible manner.

Thanks for the feedback!
Many companies (eg. Sony, Warner Brothers, LG etc.) came together and invented together.
I believe that DVD players read DVD's by a reader which is usally a blue, glass hemisphere. It is easy to see in a game cube or a slime ps2.
The DVD Player works a bit like the old record player. The principles include Laser Reads the Disc, Motor Spins the Disc and Device Measures Tracks. The laser light is shone o…nto the disc and as it spins, minute dents in the internal metal disc are reflected back. A photo transistor or diode, pick up the reflected light as 1's and 0's. This is fed to a computer which reassembles the digital code through a digital to analogue converter and feeds it to an audio amplifier. The sound can then be heard through headphones or speakers. In the meantime other functions of the computer control the speed of rotation of the disc, the focus of the laser, the tracking of the laser mounting, to follow the spiral series of indentations in the disc and error correction.
Can i copy my legally bought VHS movies to DVD and throw away or donate the VHS but keep the proof of purchase without breaking copyright laws?
You are legally allowed to make copies for your own use of any copyrighted material you own, so long as you do not distribute the material. In some cases, donating originals… after making copies for yourself may be considered as distribution.
Because the balls lose some tightness and bounce after several games; not noticeable to most folk but to professionals it supposedly is.
It is advised that you do rather then have possibly dangerous drugs around the house or use drugs in the future that have lost their efficacy. The thing to do is check on thei…r use-by date.
Either the player is wearing out or the DVD is badly scratched and therefore it cannot play anymore. A solution would be to either get a new DVD player if thhe player is the p…roblem, or buy a new disc of the movie if the disc is the problem. You can even purchase a DVD player lens cleaner which is actually a DVD that cleans the gears inside the player.
Well the worst thing you can do is pour it down the kitchen drain.I have found that if you let it cool, but not until it sets, since you wont be able to pour it, take an empty… can such as an empty coffe can and pour it in that and store in your refrigerater with the lid on,until can gets full of scrap grease,then you can use it to burn any cardboard trash you may have if you have a burn pit,or you can even make soap out of it.
Either the player is damaged somewhere and cannot function properly, or the disc carriage is jammed
Only of the DVD drive is very dirty or the drive is damaged some how. It can also scratch if you drop it and the eye can move out of place and scratch it
don't throw it away... SIMPLE!
On a pre-recorded DVD, the digital information is coded by microscopic pits (dents) in a metal foil disc. The data is recorded in a spiral pattern and read from the centre, ou…tward, while the disc spins. The metal foil is encased in clear plastic to protect it but make it visible. The foil discs can be mass produced, by a simple stamping process, after a master disc has been made. To play it back, the disc is spun and a laser light shone onto the disc. The reflected light is picked up by the optics that contain the laser. The light is detected by a photo transistor or diode. The fluctuations caused by the pits are read as binary code and converted into an electrical signal. The signal is processed by a computer and converted from the binary, into sound and video. A computer also controls the speed of the spin motor, the focusing of the optics and the track of the laser lens across the disc.
No, but it is extreamly bad for the environment
No, it is perfectly legal to throw money away.
The DVD player might be old or broken, or the disk might have a strach or food stains.
