Sony Camcorder Handycam DCR-DVD505 Disc Error C1302 after installing new Sony DVD disc in driver?

I turn on my Sony Camcorder and put in a brand new compatible Sony DVD disc either -R or -RW or +RW disc does not matter they are brand new and NOT dirty then when you close the disc cover the disc drive starts making weird noises then after a few seconds the LCD screen says Disc Error C:13:02 on all of them so its NOT the discs but when i put in the same Sony DVD discs that are already used and finalized they work fine in the driver so the laser eye seems to work fine the camcorder just does not seem to recognize new discs only has anyone seen this happen because i called Sony support and they want to charge me alot to send it to them when a few hours ago it worked fine

Try to use a cotton swap to 1st clean the recording lens or blow gently on it. Place an empty disc in, format the disc, record a little scene. Turn off camcorder. Place the error disc in the camcorder, turn on the camcorder all the way to play/edit. If this doesn't work turn it to record and try to record. Worked for some of my error disc
