To load a record into a player, such as a video disc player, a record caddy is inserted into the player housing along a path. The player has a mechanism for retaining the enclosed record therein during subsequent caddy withdrawal. A turntable is provided for centering and rotatably supporting the retained record. The player includes a mechanism for translating a pickup carriage along a second path substantially parallel to the caddy path at a speed correlated with the speed of rotation of the turntable during playback. For subsequent record retrieval, an empty caddy is inserted into the player, thereby returning the record back into the caddy.
