I often burn to DVD+RW dics and watch content that way (wireless is too unreliable in my house). After about 15 months my BDP-80 started having problems with my DVD+RW discs, but was fine with regular DVDs and Blu-rays. The player would freeze on videos part way through. When I stopped playback it no longer recognized any content on the disc and so could not show the menu with content. Ejecting the disc and reloading brought the disc error or unrecognized disc messages.
Initially I thought I had bad DVD+RW discs, so I bought a new batch. Then I thought it may be overheating, as the player does get quite hot.
After attempting to address these potential issues and finding nothing I did resolved the problem, I contacted Oppo. They required me to send in a DVD+RW which exhibited problems on my player. They could not reproduce, so they created an RMA and I returned my player for repair.
Oppo replaced the loader and now everything works fine again. They replaced the loader for free, which was completely unexpected by me. Kudos to them for their fantastic customer service.
It sounds like your problem may be similar to mine. I suggest contacting Oppo for help.

The problem did not occur instantly but happened in a matter of 10 or 15 minutes. I put in a SACD and it was playing normally then the audio started dropping out for a second every 20 or 30 seconds. As I experimented with different media and rebooting things got progressively worse. Now it will only see and play Blu-Rays. I have forced a FW upgrade... no change.
