About 6 months into having this camcorder, I started to get the error C:13:02 (disk may be scratched). I tried MANY different types of disks. Eventually, the problem increased to the point where it happens 100% of the time. Every disk I put in there gives me this error.
Hi, I have the same problem, with blank Sony disks which say "Compatible with Sony DVD Handycam camcorders..." on the blister, and my Sony DCR-DVD202E camcorder. Impossible to get rid of this issue. Lost opportunities for family scenes recording, a pity!
Nothing helped so far... If you have another solution, please let me know!

Hello, It's possibly lens calibration problem, sometimes that happens when there's a lot of sudden movements during transportation, sometimes the use of scratched disks tend to trigger the Error correction algorithm of the PS3 reader, putting the reading lens into a lot of stress that heats up the EC chip and games are not read properly, causing the game to fail loading and making unusual sounds.
I recommend not to use scratched disks, try to use only PS3 game disks only to extend your console's life, and take good care of all your disks, keep them clean.
The thing is as technology improves Disks format changes to put more information into a single disk, and precision looking for data is more critical as data sectors are closer to each other, so scratched or dirty media tends to return errors.
Hope I helped, and try to seek some professional help on calibrating/substituting your old reader.
that is basically a disc error. it means that the file named in the error message (.cab) file is not recognized or simply the system cannot copy and extract files from it to complete the installation.
Create a folder in your local disk and name it Disk-1 then copy all the files of your cd-installer to that folder. do the same for DIsk 2 and so on. When during copying of files to your local disk produces error like "cannot read from device", it means that the source cd is defective with scratches and you need to buy a new installer. when no errors are detected, then open and run the setup.exe file in Disk-1.
would need the model number of pioneer. But generally this error on most pioneer refers to a dirty disk, scratched disk or dirt on the lens inside the player. try using lens cleaner and clean all your disks. Car scratch remover such as t-cut is good for removing scratches off disks.
Try to use a cotton swap to 1st clean the recording lens or blow gently on it. Place an empty disc in, format the disc, record a little scene. Turn off camcorder. Place the error disc in the camcorder, turn on the camcorder all the way to play/edit. If this doesn't work turn it to record and try to record. Worked for some of my error disc
If the camcorder does not read any disk, and makes noise when reading a disk and does not start reading, then the problem concerns either motor assembly or lens pickup. If the disk is spinning and lens had been cleaned already, then the lens must be replaced.
