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!

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
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.
SONY C:13:01 ERROR 1.cleaning the laser lens with isopropilic alcohol and q-tip 2.Try the reset button on the bottom of the camera. Tilt your camera and look below the LCD Display Backlight button on the bottom edge of the curved portion of the camera. You will need a paperclip or tip of a ball point pen to push the recessed little button. Place the camera on a level surface and try again. We find that the camera is very sensitive to tilting, as it gets older. 3.Make sure you format format at was FAT not fat32 4.All you need to do is "Quick format" the disk with the CAMERA rather than the memry stick plugged into the computer drive. 5.For sony error c:1301 using mini cd's: there is a program that recovers data from cd's that works with disk that have this error. It called "cdroller" Homepage is : www.cdroller.com 6.just take the memory stick off and re-insert it lot of times.. just keep doing it.
