Question about Sony RDR-VX500 DVD Recorder/VCR
After year of good service my Sony RDR-VX500 has ceased recording even though the red recording light is on. Using Sony DVD-R media. There is no data being transferred to the media. Player works without a problem. Also found unable to transfer VHS to DVD with same symptom. Final question...is there any encryption issue when downloading a movie from cable TV? Have d/l a number over the years, but thought maybe this could be the problem with these recent unsuccessful attempts? Any idea what might be going on? Thanks for any ideas.
I have two rdr vx500's neither one will record on dvd-r (even sony brand!) yet they used to work on -r's Now they will still work on - or + rw and +r. I suggest you do what I am going to do. NEVER BUY SONY PRODUCTS AGAIN

Make sure the DVD-R is 8x or SLOWER. They are difficult to find these days. The unit will not not give any specific warning when a faster disc is used, it just doesn't work. The burner is simply an IDE drive, so it is upgradeable, should you wish to risk that route.
