I borrowed a friend's DVD video-cam using a TDK DVD-R for video camera (30 mins single sided). I can see that something has been recorded onto the disc. However it won't play at all on my home DVD player, and when I tried it in my computer DVD drive, it came up saying it was blank.

i had the same problem ,but i found that when recording dont take out the dvd from cam.record only 25 min of the 30 and plug the power supply in the cam before finilizing...for the video files try a program called cd roller it worked for 1 of my 3 mini disc that i have video files on.
Certain disc only work in certain recorders - I know this sound weird but you must find the disc that is compatible with the recorder that you are using. If the TDK discs is working continue to use the TDK discs. Even though the format and the specifications are the same on both disc, the readers does not read all disc.
The disks required by the go-video are the dvd+r only..the brand shouldn't make any difference.
I would stay away from the 'cheapies',but you dont need expensive disks.
if you get an error when you start 'rec' ,the message displays why.
check your settings,and be sure the record timer is off.
if you have multiple segments recorded,and you record until the disk is full,
it may not finalize because there is not enough room on the disk for the menu structure.
the disk will only play in this machine. if it simply wont record,you might try a lens cleaning disk.
or you have a failure in the write laser.
Break out the manual for the camera, there is probably a "finish" or finalize procedure that needs to be run before the disk can be read by anything else.
