Try using a lens cleaning disc (any brand). You'll find them at Wal-Mart in the electronics section, or even in your grocery store, probably near the cameras.

Disc not reading. toshiba dr420 dvd recorder.

Multiple problems with the DVD recorder one of them could be the lasers not reading correctly its software is messed up or there something wrong with this but to me it sounds more like the DVD recorder has a problem I've experienced this problem before not with this particular type of DVD recorder I fix the problem by unplugging the DVD player for about 20 seconds to a minute to give it a good reset.
Quick tip: most high Tech Device problems or unknown errors can be fixed by simple restart or reset hope this helps

C 13:02 dvd-rw mini disc errors

It's not recommended to format a disc in the Computer and use it in the Camcorder.

It seems that there is an issue with the disc.

The disc should be formatted within the Camcorder itself.

I will forward a link to a page where you can get the information regarding the error message appearing on the LCD screen of the Camcorder.

Sony dvd recorder rdr gx7 sending disc error message

The laser readerwriter is most likely burned out, it is the most common failure. The option of repair is not really feasible as the cost of new is really low.

DVD+RW playback problem(s)

same prob with the shows freezing up

with a DVD+/- RW disc the amout of time keeps dropping because with every recording process the disc loses a life you can burn those disc 200 times before they become useless so the disc might be beyond the life peroid or bad

my prob is with the DVD-/+R disc tho and i figured it out the disc was bad

for the grinding noise if its hi piched its normal thats the disc spinning up to read or write speed

if that not the case something is rubbing in there and that might explaine the writting errors

**DISCLAMER**
the disc manurfacture dose not take resposnablity for defective disc and any loss they have caused(if the data is lost)
