Keeps saying "No disc" when I put a DVD in to play

I've had the unit about 4 months, I would get the "no disc" message from time to time, and I would remove the DVD, clean it, shut off the machine then turn it back on and try again. This time, its making an odd grinding noise and giving the "NO DISC" message.

    I keep getting the "no disc" message. When I finally get it to work, it makes a grinding sound. I've had this dvd player for about 3 months and have been having this problem from the beginning but the problem is getting worse now.

This sounds like the lens inside the unit is broken. Take it back to where you bought it from they should take it back under warrenty.

As a last resort you can try a firmware update if there is one but don't hold your breath. Unit may simply have lost ability to record and not be able to playback. Not uncommon - happens.

Bought a Targus slimline usb dvd player to attack to my acer netbook. It will not play any dvd's. It keeps saying my disks may be corrupt. What do I do?


There is either a problem with your discs or the targus unit so first:
put in a disc and if it says that it's corrupt then take it out and try to play it in something else that you know works.
Then if it does play, it's the targus unit's fault. If it does not play then your discs are bad.

When trying to record a home video VHS to DVD this is what I get. E-4 54040990 Cannot record on this disc. The disc is brand new.


Have you've tried cleaning the laser with a cleaning disc?

Failing this it may be worth removing the cover and cleaning the lens directly with a QTip and some lens cleaning fluid. Only use a drop and then wipe off with a clean dry QTip.

The other option is that you are using an incompatible format of blank DVDs. I've heard of people having problems using DVD-R & DVD-RW and although it is lised as being suitable for all types of recordable DVDs I belive you're best using DVD+R & DVD+RW.

The Manual states

Recordable disc

• We strongly recommend for good recording quality:

SONY DVD+RW 4x, MAXELL DVD+R 4x/8x/16x, SONY DVD+R 4x/8x/16x, TDK DVD+R 4x/8x/16x,

MAXELL DVD-RW 4x, MAXELL DVD-R 8x/16x

• Discs that have been tested and are proven to be compatible with this recorder:

VERBATIM DVD+RW 4x VERBATIM DVD+R 8x
VERBATIM DVD-RW x VERBATIM DVD-R 8x JVC DVD-RW 4x MAXELL DVD-R 16x

Navigation not working get disk reading error message upon starting car and every few minutes afterward


Check for a scratched or dirty Navi DVD disc. Clean or have the scratches polish out at your local game store. Video game stores usually have a disc repair machine that polishes out scratches.
Note: In some cases the Navi unit can cause rotational scratches on the DVD. If this is the case than the Navi unit will have to be replaced.

Sony DCR DVD108 not finalizing disc, lost data


I noticed that too with my "VR" (and NOT "Video") formatted disks. I don't think you can finalize the VR ones. Instead you have to use the Sony Import tool to grab the videos. If you are like me you probably remember using the import tool with Video formatted disks BEFORE finalizing them and it takes forever to copy them. They must be finalized to view on other devices, copy using the import tool quicker, etc., but VR formatted disks seem optimized for importing (and can be edited on the camcorder directly.
