Dirty Disk Problem with DVD+R Disks on SONY RDR-GX300?

I'm having lots of "dirty disk" problems when I try to record on DVD+R disks in my SONY RDR-GX300.  The ones giving me a problem are Memorex (both 4x and 8x speeds) and CompUSA (4x speed) generic brands. Any information or advice to help me with this problem?  I have had absolutely no problems recording on DVD-R or DVD+RW disks -- not even one failure in dozens of recordings.  (I have not tried DVD-RW, so I have no experience with that format.) I would just avoid using DVD+R disks for recording, but I got a bunch of them as a gift and want to use them up if possible. Thanks. Goodler SEVEN OUT OF TWENTY +RW DISKS FROM MEMOREX WILL NOT FORMAT-(DIRTY DISK) Have the RDR-GX300 recorder. I get frequent "dirty disc" and "cannot play this disc" messages. Sometimes wiping the disk with a soft cloth works, but lately nothing works. Brand new discs get a little into the formatting and the error messages start. It's about 2 1/2 years old and it was not cheap. My cheap Wal-Mart machine is more dependable.

I have used my Sony GX300 for a couple of years and love it. I prefer +R blanks. The only occasional problem is the media brand. It will not record Fuji 16X, but will record Fuji 4X, which are rare nowadays. I have used TDK 16X with success, but this week bought TDK "lightscribe" blanks, and the GX300 would not record with them.

Sony should provide an upgrade download for the GX300 but does not. On the internet I have been unable to find a list of suitable brands for this DVD recorder, so I have to take risks when shopping. Fortunately, all blanks can be used for my computer so my money is not really wasted.

It's October, 2009 and in Toronto there has been a shortage of DVD blanks for months. I've been told there will be lots available in December.

I had the same problem which was easily solved by only using VERBATIM or TRAXDATA blank R or RW disks. All others including Sony's own disks would NOT work properly !

Think you have the solution already, stick to Sony brand DVD-R disks. The +R could be traded to someone you know, and would probably work fine in a PC.

Disc loading mechanism fault. Might be due to a broken loading belt, or broken gear wheel/s. You have to take the mechanism out from the device for repair, and it is somewhat skilled work. Contact any service technician to get this set repaired. If you wish to get some details; visit the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

My factory DVD player will except disc the ejects it


If I understand your rather cryptic post correctly...

This very well could be a Blue-Ray disk loaded into a
non-Blue-Ray capable DVD player. Your car player's capabilities MUST match the disc, otherwise, the disc won't play.

I've run into this very same problem with my home DVD players. Which both are non-Blue-Ray capable, but I was able to verify the Blue-Ray discs on my PC.

DVD player wont eject dicks or play just say's disc error


You need to insert dicks into the DVD player, also, once it ejects the dicks, you should wait 20 minutes or so before attempting to eject more dicks.
