    So, I got this LG player today - LG BD630. All great except when playing back DVD+R. They play back fine but there is a regular, I mean every few seconds, clicking sound. It sounds like a cricket, for want of a better description.
    I get the same sound briefly, at the beginning of other discs, like the player is searching for the media. But, once the disc starts to play, it goes and does not return. With the DVD+Rs it remains.
    Any thoughts on this folks?

    It could be a defective player. I know, *duh*, right? I would either exchange it for the same model and see if the problem persists, or exchange it for a Panasonic or Sony (my preferred brands).

    On further investigation, the discs which do this are narrowed down to Verbatim discs, both DVD-R and DVD+R, and all from the same source. They all played fine in my old player.
    I'd really appreciate some input.
