Toshiba 2109/MGM disc workaround #1 (thanks to various site readers who trialled this method):
  1. Insert DVD and wait for it to stop responding
  2. Press STOP 3 times
  3. Press the TITLE button

Toshiba 2109/MGM disc workaround #2 (thanks to Ben H):
  1. Insert disc into player
  2. While the display on the front of the player is flashing LOADING, repeatedly press the STOP button on the player (the remote may be too slow). What you are trying to achieve here is to stop the disc before the laser pickup reaches its first destination (the point at which it usually hangs up). One second too late and the player will hang up, hence press STOP repeatedly.
  3. Once stopped, use the "RCE Workaround" to access the main feature:

    Access to the main menu (by pressing MENU) from the main feature should be OK. However, on some discs you may not be able to access the extra features from the menu - the player may hang up after selecting them. In this case it is possible (but unlikely) that you may be able to access the extra features by entering the extra feature TITLE number instead of the main feature TITLE number in the stopped mode outlined above. In the likely event that this also does not work, do the following:

  1. Access the main feature using the above method
  2. WHILE the movie is playing use the "RCE Workaround" outlined above to access the extra features by entering the appropriate TITLE number.
