DVD players with faster play

The old school VCR was pop in the tape in within seconds it would work. I have a MAGNOVOX, so it takes several more seconds just to 'load' a DISC a plain DVD.

Do blue rays load faster? Or is that just how digital era is with slower load time.

Just curious. Thanks.

the JVC players use a higher amp motor on their disc players and they do spin faster, and their actuator and their relays also use more juice and better components, however, these players cost a lot.

i've never noticed it taking longer to load up a dvd than playing a tape, in fact i've had way more issues with vhs players so when dvd's came out i was very happy. if it's taking more than 10 seconds for the disc to load and start playing, you might either need a newer dvd player, or clean your discs with rubbing alcohol before putting them in

Well mine is well old-ish. 2007 maybe? I used to pop in the tape, hit play then in like 3 seconeds load.

Loading has this long box for a messaing, like:

"Loading.

"Loading...

"Loading...

"Loading........"

Then it finally loads

They usually are clean. I have even cleaned the DISC player.. plastic 'mouth' whatever you call it. That round section you place it that then goes in. Not a techy.

Maybe I should get a DISC cleaner to clean inside it. It's the same one that ate my tape, the others in the house are ALL acting insane and eating tapes.

Oh.

I tried the vcr cleaner, but it doesn't fix the 'eat up' tape issue.

Thank you.
