    Can anyone help - after faultless operation for 2 years my Sony RDR GX3 displays "disc error" no matter whether its a pre-recorded disc or a blank one with say a TV programme recorded on it. Quite literally last night it was recording and playing OK and then tonight it says "disc error" no matter what disc is in the machine.

    Having said that I did notice that 2 separate new Sony (of all makes!) DVD+RW discs woudl not work in it last night - wouldn't format them and then said disc wasn't recordable !! Aaagh !! I was happily using my usual Maxell discs before that no problems.

    Anyone got any ideas ??

    many thanks

    Bump!

    My RDR-GX300 has just started doing this too!

    Any disc I use tries to load for ages and then throws up 'Disc Error'. I've tried the classic 'switching it off and then on again' and resetting to factory defaults but no joy.

    Any ideas oh learned ones? Dirty lense? Or is that an urban myth? Are those lense cleaners just snake oil?
