I have the same problem. The dvd-r's will play for a while, then all of a sudden won't. You have to do a factory reset, which resets all of your settings to the factory settings. To do so, you have to power the dvd player on without a disk inserted. Then press the menu key, then 76419. You may or may not have to hit enter. The dvd player will shut off automatically and when you power it back up, you should be able to play the dvd-r's, but you will have to reset you preferred sttings.

You probably have burnt the dvd disc using a video format that is not compatible with your player.
A lot of DVD players will not play .AVI or DIVx files that are commonly downloaded.
Your DVD player manual should list the formats it will play.
Convert downloaded movies to a compatible format before burning to disc.
There are several conversion programmes available via the web - at a cost of approx $50.00.
AVS4U works ok.
do to the panasonit web site and it will tell you
it should play any disc other then divx
if you player is made by a media company they dont sopport divix as a format at all
just very very few players if any for this brand
sony is a tv and movie company so they are a no
magnavox and phillips and rca do sopport it cus they are not a media company
the best format to buy is the DVD-R but make sure your disc has been finalised if you reinsert your disc on the functions screen you should see finalise this is essential for compatible playback hope this helps regards Jim
Occasionally the software on most blu-ray players needs to be updated to the newest technology. The reason some discs play and some don't is because the discs that play are most-likely older movies or from a company that still used the "outdated" software. So the discs that don't play (most likely discs made with the updated software) won't play on your player until you've update the player's software. To do this visit, in your case, Sony's website for update info. There are a few ways you can get the info. You can download it directly to your player (if it has online accessibility) or you can request that they send you an update disc. Either way, most companies provide the update for free. Hope this helps, good luck!
