DVD reports: No disk when I try to play a DVD-R record by me
I bought recently this DVD player. When I try to play a DVD-R disk record by me with a Sony recorder it shows the message: "No Disk".
I try with a DVD+RW record by me in the same conditions and it plays well.
Please help me as soon as posible

Does your DVD player support that version of DVD disk? Not all players will handle DVD-R. Check the manual for compatibility.
Try recording to DVD+R then see if your player will play it.
Also, in what format (.avi, .flv, .mov, etc.) was the item recorded and is your player able to handle that format? Again, check the manual for compatibility.
try sothink dvd moviemaker software or dvdvideosoft software from www.cnet.com/download.....most dvd recorders will burn (check your manual for the correct type (+ / -) and brand that works best)...but wont let you play on other machines unless you format and the other machine is just as new as the recorder...(our older dvd players will not play these new dvd)
The funny thing about dvd players is they just stop functioning after awhile. I've had mine for 2 years now (4 players before that), and that's a personal record. On the flipside I have a sony dvd burner that won't read CD's!
Really the only thing i can suggest is updating the firmware via cd if it supports it (if you give me your make and model # i can check on it). I would also try different DVD's- like ones that you know used to play. Some newer ones have really aggressive anti-piracy garbage that will keep older players from playing them.
Recently purchased a unit... You can imagine the joy when I found in Manual: Audio discs can only play if in .mpg or .wma formats! Yes, all the bells and whistles except the most basic of functions such as all common audio formats. Other portable $99 dvd player works with them.
My Smasung DVD/VCR Combo stopped reading DVDs because of a dirty read head. It started by only playing disks sometimes, and progressed to never playing disks. I assumed it was a dirty laser lens so I bought a lens cleaner set. Unfortunately my player wouldn't play the cleaner disk.
So I took it apart and cleaned the laser lens manually with some isopropyl alcohol (the clenser that came with my cleaning disk), and a lens cloth (that came with my glasses). Just open the case (starting with the screws in the back) and remove the snap in cross panel that obscures the lens of the DVD portion. Put a drop of cleanser on the lens and gently wipe it with the cloth.
Oh and by the way, I take no responsibility if you break your own player while following my instructions. My own DVD player was far out of warranty at the time I cracked it open.
