Question about Sony DAV-S400 System
I inserted a bonafide DVD and the system displays a message "Insert Disc". I I open and reclosed the system and the same message was re displayed. Can you help?
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.

Do other discs work in your CD drive? If your CD drive has failed, that could be your problem
Copy-protected discs ship essentially damaged and are not compliant with CD/DVD standards, so can fail to read in strictly standards-compliant DVD drives.
