Question about Sony RDR-HX715 DVD Recorder
My Sony RDR-HX715 recorder will not copy from HDD to DVD. When I insert a blank DVD (both +R and -R, up to 16X) it gives a disc error. When I try to dub, it tells me the disc is unrecordable. I cannot get to dub mode with any of the blank DVDs
Sony support is no help with this
SOURCE: failure to record on -R DVDs
DVD-Rs do work with the RDR-VX500 ...... I had not recorded on mine for a few months after I ran out of the last batch ....... then I tried recording on the newer Sony DVD-Rs I had ...... would not record on DVD-R ..... turns out the instructions say the recorder will not work with any DVDs faster than 8x .... It looks like it's recording but it doesn't ..... then I noticed the newer DVDs were 16x ...... found an old 8x and tried it and it works fine ..... turns out the unit won't record slower on a 16x, it just won't record at all ...... get 8x and you'll be ok

SOURCE: VHS TO DVD DUB ERROR ON PLAYBACK
Had the same problem. I have the Sony RDR VX560 which I presume is similiar. You left out one step after dubbing. You need to "Finalize" in order to play the DVD in other equipment. See System menue or read the Operating Instructions. It would probably been appropriate for Sony to put a footnote in the dubbing instructions. Oh well.

either a dirty optical pickup or a a bad optical pickup in the unit=pretty much has to be one or the other
