Question about Panasonic SC-DT100 System
Various issues can cause drives to occasionally balk at writing optical discs. These run the gamut of physical, hardware, and software troubles.
Inappropriate or dirty media may be to blame. Make sure to match the type of recordable disc to the drive, and check each disc for fingerprints or other contaminants. If a disc is dirty, wipe it with a clean, soft cloth in a straight line from the center hole outward. Try a quality optical drive cleaning disc if you suspect dust contamination on the drive’s laser lens.
Some discs don’t perform well with certain drives, even within their rated speeds. Try recording at a slower speed and then with a different brand of disc. Also, on PCs, verify that the temporary file storage area on the hard drive used by the burning software has enough free, defragmented space. Allocate at least 5GB for a DVD (9GB for a double-layer [DL] disc) and about 1GB for CD burning.

I read on a forum that someone bought the info from http://www.dvdunlocks4u.com/ and it was only $8.99, and it worked to make their SC-DT100 multi-region. There was no "special remote" or "Special disk" needed. They will just e-mail you and tell you exactly what you need to do.
That may be your cheapest/quickest solution.

What happens when you put in an original disc? Are these the same original discs that you have used in the past on this unit? Did you try to region hack your unit? Did you try using a lens cleaner?

The issue usually related to more than one possibilities. First possibility; the obstacle in front of laser beam lens. Sometime by natural causes the DVD lens collect tiny amount of dust which makes the laser reflection on CD weaker. since copied DVDs has different track structure it might be better reflected.
Second possibility is your region code has been changed. Copied DVDs usualy come with region "0". You might try to set your region again.
You may perform lens cleaning by obtaining an easy to find DVD cleaner set.
