Question about Sony RDR-GX300 DVD Recorder

1 Answer

Cannot get remote to work

I have a sony rdr-gx300 dvd recorder.  I thought after having it a few years the remote just stopped working.  It wouldn't perform a single function.  I changed the batteries and check the troubleshooting in the owners manual with no results.  I then ordered a new remote.  Unfortunately that did not solve the problem either. So now I really don't have any idea what the solution is.  Any input would be helpful.
Thanks,
Matt

On That Type Of DVD Recorder,( RW,R-R+). You Will Have To Finalize The Disk. Finalizing is Necessary When Playing On Any Equipment Other Than This Recorder.Even IF Your Other DVD Equipment IS ( VR ) Format Compatible You Still Need To Finalize The Disk. After Finalizing,You Cannot Edit or Record on The Disk,Make Sure It's In Video Mode.

Try changing the "command mode" switch on bottom right corner of remote. Setting 3 is the default code. This setting must match the setting in the system setup menu.

Sony dvd rdr gx300 failure to delete discs


You can delete titles on a DVD+/-R, but it will not free up disc space. These are not "rewritable (RW)" disks.

To reuse discs, start with a DVD +/-RW. Be sure to format it "VR," not "Video."

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


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.
