You could use any CD/RW blanks now if theren ot workign then there might be a issue with the recorder and not the disc then you might want to try getting a cleaning kit and run that in the recorder to see if there is anything dirty on the optic laser. Other then that any CD-r rw should work you might want to check the speeds now I would try 4X or 8X you might have a speed issue but i have not seen or heard from you on that yet. please do rate with the thumbs above on this solution. Thanks for using fixya.com
I, too, was having this same problem, and as the last respondent suggested, try cleaning the lens. There are a number of kits out there (I got a Philips for about $12 at Walmart) and problem fixed. Works like new. I plan on running the disc on all my dvd players and PCs. Good luck!
One possible source of difficulty is there are different blanks for
"slow" recorders (1x - 4x), "high speed" recorders (4x-10x), "ultra speed"
recorders (12x-24x), and "ultra speed +" recorders. The disc manufacturers
had to change the way the discs were made to accommodate each successive
improvement, so older recorders don't work with the newer disks.
It is possible for some 4x-capable "slow" drives to use the "fast" blanks
with a firmware upgrade, but there is no advantage to doing so since you're
still limited to 4x recording (unless, of course, you're unable to find
"slow" CD-RW blanks).
CD-RW discs for the faster drives are labeled with a "High Speed",
"Ultra Speed", or "Ultra Speed +" logos. Make sure you buy the right blanks
for your drive.
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 was having the same problem if I used DVD+R blanks, but the programs would record fine if I used Memorex DVD+RW rewritables. Until today, that is - now it won't let me burn anything from the HDD to a disk! My 3455H is about two years old.
Gotta say I'm quite disappointed with it, and would never consider another Philips product. :(
