I have had great success with Dynex Model DX-DVD-R25. They are specifically: 4x 120min. 4.7gb.
It's a spindle of 25. The UPC Code is 00603 10116. Now I'm searching for more myself! These discs have worked well for me and play great in other DVD players, as well. If you find 'em... please post it here!

Rule of thumb. a DVD-R is the most reliable and will work in ANY DVD RECORDER. ALL RW discs are hit or miss and not reliable, no matter who makes them. DO NOT BUY discs made by Maxell or Memorex. They are **** and should be illegal to sell. Verbatim brand is by far the most reliable. If you are buying RW's because you want to reuse them over and over...give up and use -R's. your life will be much happier.
this brand and model should be able to play the discs you mentioned witih no problems, unless it is defective, or a error is being made when you are recording the discs. If you are recording and they ar enot playing, most likely you are not "finalizing" the discs durring the burn processs. All discs MUST BE finalized to be played on any dvd player.
Below is a list of discs that should or should not be used with the DVD recorders.
4x can be used
8x will result in a disc error.
2x can be used
4x will result in a disc error.
The following discs have been tested and are proven to be compatible with our DVD recorders.
IMATION DVD-R 2.0
TDK DVD-RW 2X
TDK DVD-R 2X
The following are brands of discs we DO NOT recommend:
TDK DVD-RW 4x
TDK DVD-R 4x
Please be aware that a free software upgrade is now available to customers. This upgrade will enable your unit to recognize the (DVD-R 8x) discs. To obtain a copy, please call 1-800-242-7158. Customer service by phone is available 7 days a week 6:00am to 9:00pm pacific time.
In order to receive the upgrade we need to know what firmware version your unit requires. First you need to access the DVD recorders service mode. Turn on the DVD Recorder and the Television, make sure the unit is on the DVD side. You may access the service mode by pressing the CMSKIP button on the remote control. Once you press CMSKIP you must press the numbers 1,2,3. You must do this quickly so it may take a couple tries. The model name will appear on the screen followed by Firmware Version. I need to know the serial number next to FE: Press the RETURN button to exit screen.

I had to run from the RCA outs of my DVR into the inputs that are on the front right of the RW340...behind the little door. Now I can easily record from live cable or from my Comcast DVR recorder. Couldn't get it to work from the backside inputs.
Mine is just the DV RW340 (no U). And yes, the manual is brutal. We had to call tech support to find what disc will actually work in the darned thing.
Now my big problem is finding more 4x DV-R disks.
Shoulda bought more when Comp USA was clearing them out a few years ago!
I have had great success with Dynex Model: DX-DVD-R25 discs. And they play equally nicely on my Toshiba DVD player in the livingroom. I have also given several away to people after I had transfered home videos to DVD and those people all had good results playing the discs that I made on my lowly Sharp Dv-RW340.
I have this same problem so I called Sharp. This model is a little older. When you buy the disks there is a number with an X after it. If you buy the - R disk the number has to be 4X or less, for the -RW it has to 2X or less. Apparently they can still be bought at Office Depot or online.
