Question about Sony RDR-GX315 DVD Recorder

1 Answer

Wont play on other players

Hello and thank you in advance When I record with my Sony RDR-GX315 it will record but will only play on itself. I cannot watch anything I record on any other dvd player or computer. I bought it open box and do not have a manual and am hoping it is something simple. I am using Memorex DVD+R disks. Thanks again valleysuper

Here's the link to the manual; check page 67 - it sounds like your discs need to be finalised before you can read them elsewhere Hope this helps, if you dont find what you need please ask again :)

Turn off recorder. Hold the on/off button on the dvd player for a few seconds. until "CHILD LOCK" disappears. The child lock is now disengaged...Check page 37 in the manual (I found it online -- same thing happened to my player -- I just freed it)
