What causes a DVD to freeze?

The movie just stops and looks like its been paused. Wont rewind, FF, play, etc. Looking for the scientific answer out of curiosity, not simple answers like "blow into the player" or "wipe the disc". (Both I've tried by the way)

The disc is probably scratched, or u may need a new DVD player. Try putting a little rubbing alcohol on a soft cloth and wiping the disc from the center to the edge.

It could be that the laser inside is malfunctioning,I've gone through 3 DVD players because of this problem.The problem starts by playing scratched discs,that's why they have to be handled very carefully just like in the old days with vinyl records,any scratches and the whole record is shot.

I've had the same problem with a DVD player. Bought a new one and the problem is gone.
