I have just tried to play a cd-r(burnt on my computer) on my sony rdr-gx3.It loaded and played as normal for about 30 secs and then stopped playing issuing the message 'disc error'.
It now refuses to play cd's of any type, taking some minutes to load before issuing 'disc error'. It will however still play and record dvd's as normal.
Can anyone help?

Re: Disc error message
Computer Burned discs are a grey area for some players[different firmware/chipsets]
There is a list on the web of players and what they will play a Google/Yahoo will reveal.
Also checkout the manual that came with the player.

Hi, i had a Sony dvd /music centre with surround sound a different model and the dvd would not play any type of burnt dvd on it. It would play proper dvd's and music cd's . I don't know if its something Sony has built into its systems.
Recording tv program or duffing none codes dvd disc,must wait it for finalizing code done completely before can take it out or can be watching it on the same DVD recoder player or a compatible one.Record other disc,just must wait the disc to completely finalizing it final codes,the disc should play with no problems.
Hard to say because this could be caused by any number of things. You could try cleaning the optical read head but this could get very involved unless you use a cleaning disc which may not work. You could try different discs such as a CD to see if that still fails. It could be the disc format. If everything fails then most likely a repair is required. Go to https://eservice.sony.com/webrma/web/index.do and locate a SONY repair location.
This is quite common of older players. Some only work with DVD+R discs and others with DVD-R discs.
Some player also does not read recordable discs (an early form to try prevent piracy)
Also make sure if recorded on your Recorder, that the disc is finalized before you try to play it on an older player. (See your menu / manual on the recorder for the procedure)
Dvd players are only made to last a couple of years(the laser goes bad).If you play scratched disc's it won't last that long.Hopefully you didn't pay alot for the player,and if you did then you can get the laser repaired but its expensive.I usually wait until the things go on sale and pick one up for 20 or 30 dollars.When the laser burns out after repeated use I just buy a new one because fixing them is more expensive and unless you want to continue having problems its easier to buy new.These guys that put alot of money in these units are just wasting their money.
This is because when you burn a DVD and want to use it on another unit you have to finalize it. Especially from another device such as your computer. You should have the option on your computer to finalize or make disc compatible.
