    I own the dual-tray Toshiba 6200 DVD player, and occasionally the player freezes up, not letting me do anything--even turn its power off. I'm forced to reset the unit by unplugging it. On the most recent occasions, the player froze while I was trying to play CDs--first the Sheryl Crow DTS "Globe Sessions" disc, and then just a regular ol' CD. A couple weeks ago, after the THX logo on the first "Die Hard" movie, the DVD stopped playing, and the digital readout simply read "Insert Disc." I tried unplugging, but that method didn't even work. But in the morning, all was fine again. Very irritating. I bought the player online. Should I live with these annoyances or try replacing the player through Toshiba? Has anyone else experienced similar problems with this player?

    No, mine has worked completely glitch-free for many months. You must have a lemon. They should fix it. The only problem - which has a workaround - is that you can't leave it in "blacker than black" mode after using a setup disk. See old threads for this.

    The only glitch I have come across is with the Dogma special ed dvd. It froze twice during the audio commentary. I played the movie at first with no problem then it froze when I immediately played it again for the commentary. Once before the layer switch and once towards the end. From what I hear other people have had a problem with this disc so I don't know if it's the player or the disc.
