Disk recording and playback stopped working

Generally this means that there is either an internal issue going on, or that the laser has become dirty or has defected. Try bying a simple DVD cleaner disk and running that through a few times. If that does not work the product may be defective -- in which case I hope that you still have a warranty -- and if you do return the product promptly for a new one.
