Re: when i place a recordable dvd it reads "no disk"
If you have +R/RW you can use only +R or RAM DVDs. http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=3610576#Specifications
Also check the allowed maxximum recording speed (refer the manual, please). If you have for example 4 you can not use disc higher when 4 (it has to be marked 1-16)
If you use 2.7 you should use only discs there it marked 2.7 speed etc
If everything seems OK you need to use CD/DVD clening disk ($6 Walmart)
Please kindly let me know if you need more info. I am here to help

The laser on your drive is probably beginning to go out of alignment.
A plastic grub screw holds the laser carriage at the correct angle on the slider rods. Over time, this screw will get worn down and the laser carriage will begin to lean too far over to one side. This grub screw will need to be tightened slightly to bring the carriage back to the correct angle. I suggest turning it a quarter of a turn (clockwise) and testing it. Repeat a few times until it works correctly.
yes, most of the dvd recorders are like that. you must read the user guide to find the correct dvd brand to use. i have a toshiba (i can only use maxell, (best) tdk ,dynex (good) and memorex (Ok)) fuji sony pansonic will not record nor play.
I have used my Sony GX300 for a couple of years and love it. I prefer +R blanks. The only occasional problem is the media brand. It will not record Fuji 16X, but will record Fuji 4X, which are rare nowadays. I have used TDK 16X with success, but this week bought TDK "lightscribe" blanks, and the GX300 would not record with them.
Sony should provide an upgrade download for the GX300 but does not. On the internet I have been unable to find a list of suitable brands for this DVD recorder, so I have to take risks when shopping. Fortunately, all blanks can be used for my computer so my money is not really wasted.
It's October, 2009 and in Toronto there has been a shortage of DVD blanks for months. I've been told there will be lots available in December.
Sorry to hear about your problem. I do own this model too. I have not gotten the update myself. I just started using the dvd recorder.I bought a pack of dvds (Ativa) and now I need to return them, they are not supported by this dvd player. I called the 800 number and they told me some of the dvd brands it supports: JVC, TDK, Memorex, Maxell and Sony. I know Sony works, because I used them before. I also read "Vibratim" brand from Sam's Club works.
I had the same problem and after reading and trying allot of disks I found the following to work.
Maxell - RW disk. Did a complete format on my computer (takes a while).
Burned a DVD using Vista DVD burner with only a Jpg as per one of the
other posts. Once the disk plays. Stop and goto disk management and
format using DVD-V (VR did not work).
I know its not pretty but at least its better than throwing it in the garbage bin.
