Hi guys, Recently I haven't been able to burn anything to dvd from the hard drive of my HXD860. When I stick the disc in it formats it fine, then I go to dub the selected videos in 'fast' mode and it sits there for about 2 minutes then says that the disc is 'Dirty' and stops dead in its tracks. I take the dvd out and it has burned a tiny ring of data, presumably the proprietary code for having an un-closed disc but it means that the disc is wasted as I can't use it on anything else. This is with Verbatim 16x media, also tried it with some ridata discs and the same result. If I try to do an 'Original' speed burn, i.e. an hour of video takes an hour to burn, it doesn't complain the disc is dirty but the timer to finish recording never goes down and the machine needs to be turned off at the wall to snap it out of it. It seems then that the dvd drive has become faulty while everything else about the machine is totally fine. I tried using a dvd lens cleaner and it hasn't had any effect. Is there any way to get a spare drive and replace it? Sony are absolutely ridiculously priced when getting anything repaired, at this point I think they will probably charge twice what the machine is now worth.
