Question about Sony Handycam DCR-DVD201 DVD Camcorder

2 Answers

Disc error! I was midway through a disc when I got the message "disc error" across the screen. After checking the disc, cleaning it, and placing it back in the machine, I still get the message. I'm guessing the disc is corrupt, but is there a way I can get it finalized up to that point so I can at least salvage what I shot that day?

    I am having the same problem with many of my DVD's. When I put them in my PC it is saying "No Disc found". The DVD are finalize, 2 of them now in the camera are flashing disc error or Still recording disabled. I am trying to salvage this footage that is very important to me. I tryed cleaning them and even downloaded IsoBuster to see if I can get any files out of it. But the PC won't even recoganize the DVD. I know it is not my drive because other DVD's work just fine. Any help would be appreciate.

    My DCR-DVD201 Sony Handycam says "DISK ACCESS" as soon as I turn it on. It will not record. I've tried two brand new DVD-RW disks. When I switch to a different screen it says "DISK ERROR". Help!!! We have a new baby and really want to video him!



    Thank you,

    Jamie

WII unit will not read disk when put in. Screen says there is an error and to remove disk but gives no other directions. What may the problem be?


    "Unable to read the disc" or "Disc could not be read" Messages
    If you are getting one of the above error messages:
    • This message can display if you eject a disc during game play. If this is when the message displayed, make sure that you return to the Wii Menu before changing discs if you wish to play a different game.

    • If your Wii console is laying flat, it may be positioned upside down. Ensure that is positioned right-side up: the game disc slot should be above all three buttons and the SD Card slot.

    • Ensure that you are properly loading a Game Disc. insertdisccorrect.gif
      • If your console is placed vertically, the disc label will face to the right.
      • If your console is placed horizontally, the disc label will face upwards

    • Check our list of specific game issues to see if there is a known issue with that particular title.
    • If you know you are inserting the Game Disc correctly, but are still have the same problem with only one game (or if you only have one game), try cleaning the Game Disc by following the disc cleaning procedures (click here).

    If the above information did not resolve the issue or it is happening with most or all of your games, a repair is necessary. Please note: So that our technicians are able to duplicate the issue, please include at least one sample game disc that causes this message to appear when played. Click here to set up a repair.

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.

"no disc" error message


Try unplugging the unit, then remove the cover. Take a cotton swab, wet one end with glass cleaner, and clean the lens on the laser assembly. Use the other end to dry it off and finish cleaning. Wipe very gently, do not press down hard on the lens.

This problem is usually (not always) caused by dust and smog accumulating on the lens, preventing the laser from reading the disc. Symptoms are skipping, spinning and not reading, or "no disc" errors.

I get a error message when i instal its around when expansion 7 is installing witch is disc 2 and it happens everytime i install help me plz Jacob


Jacob,
Is the disc clean???
Make sure there is nothing on it. You can wash it in hot water and any liquid soap.
Only wash the disc in **ONE** direction and never in circles. Just straight across._______________
Rinse and dry same way.

    PS2 consule says read disc error for every game inserted


    I helped a friend fix his PS2 with these symptoms using this webpage:

    This is not to say yours has the same problems, but it's probably worth a try.

    Good luck.
