"Disc Error" reads on Sony Handycam DVR-R

I recordered my baby's first videos on my Sony handycam. The last time I went to use it, the scree kept reading "Remove disc, disc error." I cannot see anything or format the disc. The camera still works with other DVD-Rs, but I'm hoping I didn't lose my baby's first precious videos! I would be truly grateful for any help or ideas.

I bought a program called "inDisc Recovery" that locates lost files and then saves them to your computer.

Sony Handycam says movie recording disabled. How did this happen and how do I undo it?

Follow this procedure to troubleshoot when Recording disabled is displayed by the camcorder.
  1. Verify the disc being used has not been finalized. It is not possible to record additional video on a finalized disc.
  2. Attempt to record on a different disc.

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
