SOURCE: disc error
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.

I've found out that the recording speed is important for this model. The speed on the dvd must be 4x or less. If your using an 8x or 16x it will not work. Hope this helps.
Maybe you can help me. I'm looking for the 4 digit code that goes into the remote to make it compatible. I think it's in the operators manual, which I no longer have. If you can find this number I would really appreciate it.

This seems to be a common problem on all DVD players.
If a DVD Lens cleaner (with brushes) fails to fix the problem, then it could be that you have
grease particles on the lens. Do the following:
Note. If unit is still under warranty, you may nullify this by opening unit up
You will need:
Screwdrivers as necessary
Cotton Bud sticks (also known as Q-tips)
Isoproponal/Isopropyl Alcohol (small bottle comes with some CD/DVD cleaners)
Compressed Air cannister/aerosol
1. After disconnecting unit, leave standing for 15 minutes
2. Unscrew lid and remove
3. Carefully remove DVD lens cover
4. Blast whole area with compressed air to remove dust
5. Dip one end of cotton bud in Isoproponal, and very carefully wipe DVD lens (just one wipe
6. Now wipe lens with dry end of cotton bud, and leave a few seconds to dry
7. Carefully replace DVD lens cover (watch out for ribbon cables)
8. Replace Lid
9. Reconnect, switch on and test
After I'd tried every other way possible, this method finally worked for me!

I have three possibilities for you. One obvious answer would be that you are trying to record onto either a CD-R rather than a DVD-R, but I'm assuming that's not your problem. The second would be that you are trying to record onto a dvd that your recorder doesn't support (i.e. DVD-RW and your recorder only supports DVD-R). The final possibility is that the disc is a "dud." I have had this problem before and just had to try another disc. Good luck and let me know how it turns out, will you? Der Strom

This DVD combo will only read DVD-RW and DVD-R format discs the manual says that Verbatim DVD-RW 2X are the best to use also TDK DVD-R
