Disc Error: Remove Disc

When I turn on my camera and the viewfinder reads "Disc Access" briefly, only to beep at me the error: Disc Error: Remove Disc. I have replaced it with several discs, but I get the same message. This has never happened and I have never had any problems with this recorder before--can you help?

Same problem as written elsewhere. DVD508 - been good for a couple of years. Lately, while shooting, got an error "Disc access error". Later, disc unable to read disc. Error code C-13-02. Tried a new disc...

Well yes you are quite right, 1000's of people all over the world are having major problem with this silly idea of DVD disks being used in movie or any other cameras, DVD is simply not reliable enough to store data on like films, I am a big movie maker, have been over 30 years now, only will use 8mm Video tape, as I like my movies to work, not end up with no movie to look at.
I hope as many people as pos call Sony as I have and tell them we want 8mm tape only, no silly rubbish media, our film are too important to us I feel.

"Disc Error" reads on Sony Handycam DVR-R

I bought a program called "inDisc Recovery" that locates lost files and then saves them to your computer.
