The reason it is not recognizing your disk could be for two or three reasons. I'll start with the simplest to fix and it is the problem most of the time. The laser lens that goes back and forth to read the disk is dirty. It needs to be cleaned and to do that, you need to take the cover off with the power disconnected. Once the cover is off (only a few screws) you will be able to see the carriage that holds the disk in place. There is about a two inch slot and in there you will see the laser lens that reads the disk. Take a q-tip and some isopropyl alcohol and gently clean the lens, then take the dry end of the q-tip and dry off any excess that has not evaporated.
Before you put the cover back on, plug the unit back in and operate it as normal. Pay close attention that the disk actually begins to spin. This is the second thing that can cause the problem, that the disk never spins. I am sure though that the cleaning will do the job for you. Let me know how you do and I would appreciate you rating my solution if it has helped you with your problem.

It will not play Verbatim DVD-R disc that I burnt on my computer.


If it can read any other disk, you should burn your disk again because burning process was incorrect. your computer can't recognize the disk. In this case, probably you can't do anything, no way to try to read a bad disk if computer can't even "see" it.
By the way, you should test to read the disk on some other computer.
If happens with ALL your disks, your optical player is defective.
Again test reading with other computer if record was made correctly
As for your device, you should check if worth to repair and decide if repair or replace it.

Will not recognize disk inserted


Try changing your DVD regional locale. Some dvd/roms will restrict certain media if the locale is set to some other region than your own. The other thing you can do is update the drivers - - this seems arbitrary and you probably hear that often when asking a techie guru... But it is well justified. Also try different brands of dvdrws. Some dvd roms will restrict +rw - rw. Hope this helps.

Doesn't recognize any disks


I updated my firmware from 1413 to 1416 found on avforums. This is for european units. I suggest you also complain to Toshiba Japan as there are known issues with the xs32. We all need a firmware update. See AVforums.

My unit will not recognise RAM discs anymore - even those that I had previously used.

Have you thought of replacing the DVD drive. See AVforums.
