    :lease:Hi, I bought this sony dvd rdr-gx210 about june 2007. It's been working pretty well up to now with the use of 4 dvd -rw discs that I have been recording movies on. I found out yesterday that it had failed to record a movie that I had put in the night before. However, when I went to put in another disc for watching, it rejected the disc with the statement on the screen: "Cannot play this disc". It did the same thing with the other 3 discs. When I tried 2 or 3 of my cd music discs that I had made on my laptop, they worked fine. I then put in a shop-bought dvd of "Evita", it rejected that too. I cannot think of anything out of the ordinary that I have done with this machine. Does anybody on this great forum have any suggestions?

    Two things to try:


    1 - A power reset - i.e. disconnect all power for a few minutes.

    2 - A DVD Cleaning disc.

    Hi gavtech,
    I did boot the system for 30 secs before, but I'll try again for a few minutes as you suggest. As far as the cleaning suggestion, why would the cd's work & not the dvd's? Thanks for the suggestions anyway!
